The AL Cy Young is a three-man race early in the MLB season.

New York Yankees ace right-hander Gerrit Cole (+160) has extended his lead slightly over Shane Bieber (+320) of the Cleveland Indians. Those two were co-favorites to win the AL Cy Young award at the start of the season on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB futures odds. Tampa Bay Rays starter Tyler Glasnow (+450) is also a leading Cy Young contender in the American League.

Cole is 4-1 in six starts and leads the AL with a 1.43 ERA and 0.72 WHIP having allowed 24 hits and just 3 BB and one HR in 37.2 innings. Cole's 62 strikeouts ranks third in the majors behind Bieber (68) and Glasnow (66). The Yankees' ace is also holding opposing hitters to a .178 batting average.

Bieber is 3-2 with a 2.76 ERA. The flamethrower's 68 strikeouts equates to 14.5 per nine innings, which is just slightly behind Cole. He's allowed five dingers and 14 BB and 29 hits with a 0.99 WHIP. Opposing batters are hitting .178 against Bieber

Glasnow is 4-1 in seven starts with 23 hits allowed in 43.2 innings and a 0.87 WHIP. Glasnow's 2.06 ERA is fourth in the AL behind Kansas City Royals veteran lefty Danny Duffy (0.60), Gerrit Cole (1.43) and the Baltimore Orioles John Means (1.70)
