Justin Verlander, the Detroit Tigers‘ triple crown winner (24 W, 2.40 ERA, 250 K), has been unanimously voted the 2011 A.L. Cy Young winner.

The National League winner will be announced tomorrow.  It will likely be the other pitching triple crown winner, the Los Angeles DodgersClayton Kershaw (21 W, 2.28 ERA, 248 K).

That would give the already-leading L.A. Dodgers their ninth Cy Young.

Here’s a list of all the Cy Young winners, by team.

The Cy Young was first awarded in 1956 to the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Don Newcombe.  Between 1956 and 1966, only one Cy Young was given to the best pitcher in all of the majors.  Beginning in 1967, separate awards were given to the best pitcher in each of the National and American Leagues.
