on

Returning for a 26th season, the Major League Baseball Players Choice Awards were presented Wednesday night.

The awards honor one outstanding player, pitcher, rookie, and “comeback” player in each league.

Here’s who took home the hardware last night:

AMERICAN LEAGUE
Most Outstanding Player– Jose Altuve, Houston Astros
Most Outstanding Pitcher– Corey Kluber, Cleveland Indians
Most Outstanding Rookie– Aaron Judge, New York Yankees
Comeback Player of the Year– Mike Moustakas, Kansas City Royals

NATIONAL LEAGUE
Most Outstanding Player– Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins
Most Outstanding Pitcher– Max Scherzer, Washington Nationals
Most Outstanding Rookie– Cody Bellinger, Los Angeles Dodgers
Comeback Player of the Year– Ryan Zimmerman, Washington Nationals

Three other awards were also presented:

MLB Player of the Year- Jose Altuve, Houston Astros
Always Gamer Award
– Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies
Marvin Miller Man of the Year– Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs

The Marvin Miller Man of the Year (in its 21st season) recognizes the player who displays excellence on and off the field, and the Always Gamer Award returned for its third season, with Jose Altuve winning the previous two times.

Had Altuve won, it would’ve been a three-peat for him in this year’s awards. There’s always next year.
