Brewers reliever Williams wins NL Rookie of Year

MLB

Reliever Devin Williams of the Brewers has been named NL Rookie of the Year.

Other finalists for the award were Phillies 3B Alec Bohm and Padres 2B Jake Cronenworth. They finished tied for second.

Williams allowed just one run in 27 innings in the shortened season and struck out 53% of the batters he faced, the highest percentage in MLB history by a pitcher with at least 20 innings pitched.

His changeup was arguably the most dominant pitch in all of baseball in 2020. Opponents batted 2-for-62 (.032) against it, the lowest opponent average on a single pitch this season (min. 50 plate appearances against).
