AL OUTSTANDING PLAYER

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

MIKE TROUT

Mike Trout continued to demonstrate why he’s widely considered this generation’s greatest all-around player. With his season cut short by about a month, the 28-year-old New Jersey native produced a .291 batting average, 45 HR and 104 RBIs. Trout, who has now hit at least 27 home runs in each of his eight full seasons, also led the AL with a 1.083 OPS. Alex Bregman and Rafael Devers were the other finalists.

Through the Players Trust, Trout will receive a $20,000 for his league-wide award and a $50,000 grant for winning Player of the Year to direct to charities of his choice.
