Diamondbacks' Torey Lovullo wins NL Manager of the Year

A bench coach with the Red Sox for four years before taking the Arizona job, Lovullo is the third Diamondbacks manager to win the award, following Kirk Gibson in 2011 and Bob Melvin in 2007.

Ultimately the awards went to two men who managed big turnarounds in their clubhouses: In the National League, it was Torey Lovullo, the first-year skipper who turned the Arizona Diamondbacks from a 93-loss team cellar dweller to a 93-win postseason team in just one season.

Lovullo finished in first place with more than double the points of Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who finished in second.

Arizona's skipper earned 18 first-place votes, while Roberts got five, with Bud Black of the Colorado Rockies and Craig Counsell of the Milwaukee Brewers each garnering three. Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts finished second.

The Minnesota Twins' Paul Molitor (18 first-place votes) was the American League victor. All balloting was completed before the start of the postseason.

Over on the American League side, Paul Molitor of the Twins was named 2017 AL Manager on the Year.

Molitor wins the honor in his third year with the organization, having come off a 59-win season in 2016. The Twins used a staggering 36 different pitchers in 2017 and traded away closer Brandon Kintzler and starter Jaime Garcia at the trade deadline, after arriving at the end of July three games under.500.

"It's humbling", Molitor told MLB Network. There was no sure-thing like when Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger won the Rookie of the Year awards.
