I can’t think of a major award except maybe AL Cy Young which the top two or at best three candidates aren’t already known, but I just got this press release from MLB, regarding an announcement of finalists this Wednesday:
Prior to BBWAA Awards Week, for the first time ever, the five finalists in each league for the MVP Award and the three AL and NL finalists for the Cy Young, Manager of the Year and Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year awards will be announced live during MLB Network’s BBWAA Awards Finalists Show this Wednesday, November 7 at 6:00 p.m. ET.
The actual awards will be handed out from Monday, November 12 to Thursday, November 15. Those announcements will be televised live on MLB Network at 6PM. A couple of hours later, you should note, than the awards are usually announced. Good move putting them a bit later in my view.
