With the World Series completed, the MLB end-of-year awards will start to be announced in the coming weeks.
Lindor has a pretty good shot, as he was one of the top shortstops on both sides of the ball this season. He appeared in all but one game, and after bit of a slow start, was an absolute force in the middle of the Mets’ lineup.
The 29-year-old became the first Met since Carlos Beltran to put together a 30-30 season with 31 homers and 31 stolen bases. He also finished with 108 runs scored, 33 doubles, 98 RBI, and a .806 OPS (his highest since 2019).
The big man still posted a strong year of his own, though, finishing third in baseball with 46 home runs and second with 118 RBI. While his average fell a bit, he did post a strong .821 OPS over 154 games.
MLB will announce the winners Thursday, Nov. 9.
