2015 MLB Award Season to Begin Next Week

We’re less than a week removed from the 2015 World Series, but offseason moves are already taking place. On Thursday, news broke that the Rays and Mariners had completed a six-player trade that sent Nathan Karns, C.J. Riefenhauser and Boog Powell (not THAT Boog Powell) to Seattle in exchange for Brad Miller, Logan Morrison and Danny Farquhar. Overall, it appears to be a good trade for both sides.

But while there are sure to be dozens of deals made throughout the upcoming offseason, that’s not what this blog post is for.

In this post, I’m going to give a very brief overview of the upcoming MLB awards schedule, which are going to begin being announced on Monday night with the 2015 Players’ Choice Awards at eight on MLB Network. I’m going to be covering the winners of those in a post following the announcement, with my thoughts on each winner.

The very next night, the BBWAA award finalists for Cy Young, Rookie of the Year and MVP are going to be announced (on MLB Network), in addition to the Gold Glove Award winners (on ESPN). Again, I’ll be sure to typed up a little something about those, as with every other award that gets announced.

Following the Silver Slugger Award winners on the 12th, the most important BBWAA award winners are set to be revealed on consecutive nights throughout the next week. Beginning with Rookies of the Year on Monday the 16th, followed by the Cy Young Awards on Tuesday, Managers of the Year on Wednesday (I won’t be writing about those), and ending with the coveted MVP awards on Thursday the 19th, it’s sure to be interesting to see if they all match up with my predictions I made for each winner.

So, there you have it — an overview of the upcoming MLB Awards. With so much talent this year in baseball, it’s sure to make for a good crop of winners from each and every category of awards throughout the coming two weeks.
