MLB awards finalists 2021: MVP, Cy Young, Rookie and Manager of the Year will be announced this week

It’s awards season in Major League Baseball, and the major individual hardware is being handed out this week. Last week, MLB revealed the finalists for each of the four major awards handed out by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA). In each league, there will be a Most Valuable Player, Cy Young winner, Rookie of the Year and Manager of the Year. That’s eight awards. 

Below are the finalists for each award. By way of reminder, all voting has concluded. This isn’t one of those situations where there are three finalists and then we re-vote or anything. This is just MLB‘s way of getting more attention on the awards and building toward the reveal of the winners next week, which, hey, there’s nothing wrong with that. 

In that sense, the “finalists” are actually simply the top three vote-getters in each respective award. 

Here is the schedule for finding out the winners next week and remember there are two awards handed out each night because the American League and National League are divided: 

  • Monday, Nov. 15: Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year
  • Tuesday, Nov. 16: Manager of the Year
  • Wednesday, Nov. 17: Cy Young
  • Thursday, Nov. 18: Most Valuable Player 

On to the finalists, whom we’ll list alphabetically within each award and league.
