MLB Predictions for MVP Preseason Awards Favorites

The cold winter of discontent that placed the baseball season in jeopardy is behind us. It’s now spring, the grass is green, the baselines are chalked, we’re ready for baseball and a look ahead to the potential postseason award winners.

AMERICAN LEAGUE MVP

  • Shohei Ohtani (+375)
  • Mike Trout (+450)
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+450)
  • Wander Franco (+2000)

Does Shohei Ohtani’s two-way talent automatically earn him his second consecutive MVP award, so long as he performs? Is this the year Juan Soto finally wins it in the NL? Will Gerrit Cole and Walker Buehler win Cy Young awards?

Then there’s the AL Rookie of the Year race between Bobby Witt Jr. and Julio Rodríguez. Both have made their respective Opening Day rosters. Which one takes it home? Will it be Seiya Suzuki or Oneil Cruz in the NL?
