Cliff Lee Biography
Cy Young Award winner from the Cleveland Indians, Cliff Lee was born August 30, 1978 in Benton, Arkansas. Lee's repertoire features a four-seam fastball, two-seam fastball and cut fastball as well as a circle changeup and a curveball. Lee won the American League Cy Young Award in 2008.
Lee's 2008 winning percentage of 88% was the twelfth best of all time, and the fourth best by a pitcher starting a minimum of 30 games. Coincidentally, the three pitchers ahead of Lee also pitch left-handed (Randy Johnson, Ron Guidry, and Lefty Grove). Lee's winning percentage is the second best in Indians history, behind Johnny Allen's 93.8% (15 wins, 1 loss, in 24 games) in 1937.
Lee earned several awards following his 2008 season. These included the AL Comeback Player of the Year Award, the Players Choice Award for AL Outstanding Pitcher of the Year, The Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award and The Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year Award. On November 13, 2008, Lee was awarded the AL Cy Young Award. This made Lee the second straight Indian (and third overall) to win the award, following former teammate CC Sabathia, who won it in 2007.
Since his call up to the Indians in September 2002, Lee has won at least 14 games in each of his first 3 full seasons and tossed more than 200 innings in both 2005 and 2006. In 2005, he finished the season with an 18-5 record and a 3.79 ERA, earning him 4th place in the AL Cy Young Award voting that year. In 2006, the Indians rewarded him with a midseason, 3-year, $14 million contract extension through the 2009 season.
