AL Cy Young Award Rankings: White Sox Lefty Chris Sale Cracks Top 5

Through two months (just about) of the 2012 MLB season, the American League Cy Young race features some usual suspects and one not-so-usual suspect.

That would be Chicago White Sox lefty Chris Sale. He hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention, but he's been one of the best pitchers in baseball for the month of May, and his numbers for the season are all solid. His first season as a starting pitcher is going pretty well.

The question is where Sale ranks among the competition for the AL Cy Young. Is he up there with Jake Peavy and Justin Verlander, or does he still have work to do before we can call him one of the Junior Circuit's elite pitchers?

Good question. The answer lies within my updated AL Cy Young award rankings.
