South Korean south paw Ryu Hyun-jin has been named among the finalists for the 2019 National League Cy Young Award, which honors the MLB's best pitchers.
His nomination comes after a highly impressive season for the LA Dodgers.
In 29 starts, he went 14-and-5, allowing an average two.three-two earned runs, the lowest in the MLB.
Other names in the mix are New York Mets' righty Jacob deGrom and Washington Nationals' ace Max Scherzer.
If Ryu wins, he will be the ninth Dodger and the first South Korean to do so.
The winner will be announced next Thursday.
