3) San Diego Padres (78-84)

4) Arizona Diamondbacks (76-86)

Cy Young

AL Cy Young

With Clayton Kershaw injured to start the year, the NL Cy Young is wide open. Aaron Nola gets his record bolstered with a good lineup and takes home the award despite Walker Buehler having a breakout year. In the AL, Justin Verlander pitches his way to another Cy Young, while Trevor Bauer takes major steps forward.

1) Justin Verlander

2) Blake Snell

3) Trevor Bauer

NL Cy Young

1) Aaron Nola

2) Jacob deGrom

Rookie of the Year

We’ve got both of the exciting ‘juniors’ taking home ROTY awards.

AL ROTY

Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

NL ROTY

Fernando Tatis Jr.

Playoffs

October baseball never disappoints. We predict that the Dodgers will finally get over the hump and win their first title since 1988.
