Nationals ace Max Scherzer was named the National League Cy Young Award winner in a landslide on Wednesday, garnering 25 of the 30 first-place votes to become the teams first recipient of the award.The winner of the 2013 American League Cy Young Award for the?Detroit Tigers, Scherzer becomes the sixth pitcher to win Cy Youngs in both leagues, joining Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Roy Halladay, Roger Clemens and Gaylord Perry.The award was announced live on MLB Network, with a vacationing Scherzer joining the broadcast via videoconference from a scuba diving boat off the coast of the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.Its such an accomplishment, Scherzer said. I mean, theres so many people to thank -- all my teammates, for going out and competing the whole season, for everything they did for me. I cant thank them enough for everything they did. ?Scherzer said he wants to find a way to be better in 2017.Ive been dreaming up different ways to do it, but until we get to spring training, that will be my thing -- to find a new way, Scherzer said. But right now, its all about celebrating what happened in 2016.Cubs ace Jon Lester was the runner-up, with one first-place vote from members of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Chicago teammate Kyle Hendricks came in third with two first-place votes. The other two first-place votes went to the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw, who finished fifth overall in voting.Scherzer led the majors in strikeouts (284) and WHIP (0.97), while leading the NL in wins (20), innings (228.1) and pitching WAR (6.2) and being tied for first in quality starts (26) and strikeout-to-walk ratio (5.07). Unfortunately for Scherzer, he also led the NL in home runs given up (31), making him the first pitcher since Johnson in 1999 to give up at least 30 homers and still win a Cy Young Award.Perhaps most notably, Scherzer authored just the fourth 20-strikeout performance in baseball history this season, as he baffled the Tigers in a May victory.For the writers to choose me for everything I was able to accomplish this year, Im so grateful, Scherzer said on the MLB Network broadcast.

Star Melbourne AFL midfielder Jack Viney is ahead of schedule in his recovery from post-season hip surgery.The 22-year-old is back running, doing one-on-one skills and some agility work and is confident the hip issues he carried this season are behind him.Im probably a week ahead of schedule - its all going really well at the moment, Viney told AAP.Were ramping up the loads, going from not doing too much to increasing quite quickly, so were on track to hopefully be back in the main group at the start of December.Viney was on crutches at the clubs best-and-fairest awards where he claimed his first Keith Bluey Truscott Trophy just a week after the home-and-away season ended.We finished on the Saturday against Geelong and I was in for the operation on the Monday morning, Viney said.We had it scanned a week before the last game and they decided Id benefit a lot from the surgery.Ive had a bit of a dodgy hip for a few years now and probably, halfway through the year, it just kept getting worse and worse.But IIm really happy with how its going.dddddddddddd.The Demons are also taking a cautious approach with former Essendon players Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd, easing the pair back into pre-season after their year on the sidelines for anti-doping violations.Its a bit of a different situation in that they havent been in a football program for 12 months, performance manager Dave Misson told the clubs website.We dont want to throw them to the wolves and into the football program straight away without getting a real handle on where theyre at.They need a little bit more base work, but I think theyre going to be fine and were looking for them to be full on into the program probably post-Christmas.(But) hopefully, theyll join in with the group before then.Talls Tom McDonald (shoulder) and Cameron Pedersen (shoulder) and utility Aaron vandenBerg (ankle) are also on modified programs.
