It’s BBWAA Awards Week: Here’s a look at the races — with predictions for each

AL Rookie of the Year

Candidates: Andrew Benintendi, Red Sox; Aaron Judge, Yankees; Trey Mancini, Orioles

It’s an American League East sweep of candidates. I saw each one play a lot, including Mancini, a first baseman by trade who learned left field in the spring and seized the starting job from Hyun Soo Kim. Mancini has the most surprising and unexpected story of this trio. His narrative won’t be enough to supplant Judge’s amazing production which included an AL-best 52 homers and a .422 on-base percentage.

Winner: Judge
