The Chicago Cubs have a legitimate National League Cy Young award candidate in Justin Steele. This is only Steele's second year in Major League Baseball, but he has already established himself as the Cubs' ace and as one of the best pitchers in the game right now.

Monday's Labor Day contest against the San Francisco Giants saw Steele turn in 8 shutout innings while setting a career-high in strikeouts with 12. It was the latest example of the 28-year-old's convincing march to the end of the season and claim to the most prestigious pitching award in baseball.

Steele's season ERA is now 2.55 (2nd in MLB), and he is tied for the lead in Wins with 16 with a WHIP of 1.14 (tied for 6th in MLB). This kind of dominance doesn't just walk in the door every day, and the Cubs certainly haven't seen this caliber of pitching in years. Should Steele win the Cy Young, he would be one of only five other Cubs pitchers to ever win the award and the first to do it in eight years.

Here is the full list of Cubs pitchers who have taken home the National League Cy Young award throughout the franchise's long history.
