Julio Urías has once again won the Warren Spahn Award, the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame announced. The honor is given to one left-handed pitcher each season, and Urías is one of five pitchers to have received it multiple times.

A Cy Young finalist, All-MLB Team and National League Outstanding Pitcher award nominee, and MVP vote-getter this year, Urías had one spectacular season. The starter led the National League with a 194 ERA+ and career-best 2.16 ERA, finished second in wins (17), and was third in both WHIP (0.931) and batting average allowed (.199).
