Episode details

José Abreu has hurt the Twins for many years. The White Sox star has now captured his first MVP award, beating out DJ LeMahieu and José Ramírez for the honor. Abreu led the White Sox to a 35-25 record and into their first postseason since 2012. For the second straight year, Nelson Cruz finished in the top-10. Byron Buxton gets respect, and Eddie Rosario catches a vote too.
