MLB Awards: Diamondbacks' Torey Lovullo named 2017 NL Manager of the Year

MLB Awards: Diamondbacks' Torey Lovullo named 2017 NL Manager of the Year

Lovullo is only the eighth skipper to capture a Manager of the Year Award in his first full season as a Major League manager - but this is actually the fourth consecutive season with a first-year victor. It was considered a close competition going in, but Lovullo claimed 18 out of 30 first-place votes.

Molitor joined Frank Robinson as the only Hall of Fame players to win a manager of the year award, which was first presented in 1983.

Lovullo beat out division rivals Bud Black, in his first year managing the Colorado Rockies, and the Dodgers' Dave Roberts as finalists for the award.

Lovullo wins the award as a first-year manager just as Roberts did following the 2016 season.




Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell (33) was fourth, followed by former Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker (25) and Joe Maddon (3) of the Chicago Cubs. The Cleveland Indians' Terry Francona, the 2016 victor, was the runner-up with 11 first-place votes.

Lovullo, 52, made the most of his first season as a big-league manager, taking that D-backs team that underachieved so much in 2016 and helping it realize its potential. Houston Astros skipper A.J. Hinch finished third. Voting was completed before the playoffs began. Not only that, but the Twins traded some good players at the deadline because they felt they were out of the race.

Over on the American League side, Paul Molitor of the Twins was named 2017 AL Manager on the Year. The prize was announced Tuesday on MLB Network. "An award like this reflects the work of the organization and everyone who contributed to the Twins having a turnaround season".
