Awards announcements represent the final chapter of a Major League Baseball season.
The first winners will be revealed Monday when the Baseball Writers Association of America names the American and National League Rookies of the Year.
This race should be more clear cut than last year’s, but closer than the 2017 contest. The awards winners should follow the theme of the 2019 season as the big boppers with the gaudy home-run numbers are likely to take home the hardware.
New York Mets slugger Pete Alonso and Houston Astros bruiser Yordan Alvarez are the league’s respective frontrunners.
