Cabrera wins two Players Choice awards
Whether Miguel Cabrera won the nod from BBWAA members for AL MVP is still more than a week away from being revealed. Players, though, gave him the nod for two honors, voting him both the Major League Player of the Year and the AL’s Outstanding Player as part of the Players Choice Awards, announced Monday night on MLB Network.
Cabrera is the second Tiger in as many years to win Player of the Year honors, following in Justin Verlander’s footsteps. Like Verlander, Cabrera also pulled off the double awards.
Cabrera and Angels rookie phenom Mike Trout were up for both awards. Trout settled for AL Outstanding Rookie honors.
