Next week is awards week for Major League Baseball, with all the major trophies handed out over a four-day span.

And the White Sox will be the only local team awaiting results. Lance Lynn is one of the three finalists for the AL Cy Young Award.

The finalists for Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year and Manager of the Year in both leagues were also announced on Monday night.

The MVP races carry the most prestige — and this year, they have the most interesting candidates. In the American League, two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels and MLB home run co-leader Vladimir Guerrero Jr. of the Toronto Blue Jays have resumes that could have made them overwhelming winners in any other year.

Balloting for the BBWAA awards was completed before the start of the postseason.
