Jacob deGrom has been the most dominant pitcher in baseball in 2021. He's been the prohibitive favorite to win his third Cy Young award, and also the National League MVP favorite. But as we've seen again this season, injuries can derail a players hopes win an award and lead his team to a division title or playoff berth.

deGrom went on the 10-day injured list this week with forearm tightness. He last pitched July 7, but owns a 1.08 ERA. Although he doesn't qualify amongst the league leaders, that's the lowest mark amongst starting pitchers. The Mets ace has 146 strikeouts in just 92.0 innings with a 0.554 WHIP. FanDuel Sportsbook still has his Cy Young Odds at -550 to win the award.

Some pitchers have moved up sharply into the race. Kevin Gausman of the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants is No. 1 in the National League with a 1.84 ERA and No. 2 with 0.850 WHIP. Guasman's odds are down sharply to +500.

Here's a look at the short list of leaders and contenders for the NL Cy Young award on FanDuel Sportsbook.
