Andre Blake of the Philadelphia Union is the 2020 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year.

The award announced Monday is the second for the 29-year-old Jamaican netminder, who also won it in 2016.

Blake received 44.1 percent of the votes cast by MLS players, technical staff and media members, easily beating out Matt Turner (12.2 percent) of the New England Revolution and the Columbus Crew's Eloy Room (7.4 percent).

Blake posted 13 wins and eight shutouts and led the league with a .778 save percentage and 0.88 goals allowed average (min. 20 appearances) while helping Philadelphia win the 2020 Supporters' Shield.

He is the fourth two-time winner of the award, joining Donovan Ricketts, Zach Thornton, Pat Onstad and Joe Cannon. No one has won it three times.

Blake missed Philadelphia's final two regular season games with a fracture in his right hand but is expected to be ready for the MLS Cup Playoffs.

"If everything goes smoothly, I think he'll be ready," coach Jim Curtin told reporters last week.
