Former pitcher Mike Flanagan, who won the Cy Young award with Baltimore in 1979, has been found dead at his home. He was 59.


The left-handed American won 167 games over 18 seasons with the Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Flanagan's body was found outside his home on Wednesday and the Major League Baseball team confirmed his death later that day.

In 1979, Flanagan won 23 games with nine losses and a 3.08 ERA. He also played for Baltimore's 1983 world championship team.

After his playing career ended, Flanagan worked in the Orioles' front office.
