Former Cy Young winner Flanagan found dead

BALTIMORE — Former Cy Young winner Mike Flanagan, who won 167 games over 18 seasons with Baltimore and the Toronto Blue Jays, has died.

Authorities found a body outside Flanagan's home on Wednesday afternoon, and it was later determined to be the former left-handed pitcher. Flanagan was 59.

Flanagan won the Cy Young Award with the Orioles in 1979 when he went 23-9 with a 3.08 ERA and five shutouts. He also played for Baltimore's 1983 world championship team, going 12-4 despite missing nearly three months with ligament damage in his left knee.
