"It is such an honor to represent Warren Spahn and his many accomplishments on the mound," Kershaw said in a statement. "Thank you to the Bricktown Rotary Club for awarding me this prestigious honor. I'm ever so grateful for your ongoing support. Lord willing, I look forward to being a good steward of all this award embodies."
Kershaw, a three-time All-Star and the 2011 NL Cy Young Award winner, went 16-9 with a Major League-best 1.83 ERA in the regular season, along with an NL-best 232 strikeouts.
This marks the second time Kershaw has won the Spahn Award after receiving the honor in 2011. He will be presented with the award during a ceremony in Oklahoma City in January.
