MLB will announce the winners of its higher-profile awards this week, starting Monday with Rookie of the Year honors in the American and National leagues.
MLB announced finalists for its end-of-season awards earlier this month, with some expected names leading the way.
Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani is a finalist for AL MVP alongside two players from the World Series champion Texas Rangers. New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole is a finalist for what would be his first AL Cy Young award.
In the NL, Arizona Diamondbacks breakout and playoff hero Corbin Carroll is among the Rookie of the Year finalists. Meanwhile, newly hired Chicago Cubs manager Craig Counsell is among the Manager of the Year finalists after leading his now former team, the Milwaukee Brewers, to the postseason.
