The accolades keep coming for Toronto Blue Jays ace Hyun Jin Ryu.

Fresh off a third-place finish in the American League Cy Young voting, Ryu was named to the 2020 All-MLB Second Team on Wednesday.

Ryu was just what the doctor ordered for the young Blue Jays in his first year with the franchise. Over 12 regular-season starts, he posted a 2.69 ERA with 72 strikeouts in 67 innings of work.

Other notable names to join Ryu on the second team were Clayton Kershaw, J.T. Realmuto, Gerrit Cole and Ronald Acuna Jr. The first team was headlined by Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, Shane Bieber, Freddie Freeman and Fernando Tatis Jr.
