Handing out 1st-Half Awards to Los Angeles Dodgers Players

The first half of the season is almost finished, and the Los Angeles Dodgers have put themselves back into the playoff discussion. While still an underachieving club, five games under .500 is not an impossible hole to climb out of.

Much of their recent success can be attributed to the presence of Yasiel Puig, as the lineup has seen a considerable boost since he entered the starting nine. Puig is the recipient at least one of the team's major awards, but the winners of the other awards may not be as obvious.

It's not often that a player puts up numbers at a Joe DiMaggio-type pace, so when they do, they most certainly deserve recognition. Seeing as no other players on the Dodgers has put up legendary numbers thus far, it will be a bit more of a competition between certain players for the other awards.

Puig is also the only Dodger who will likely have a chance to win a major award versus the rest of the competition in the bigs, though not many would be shocked if another player makes a run at the Comeback Player of the Year Award.

With the first half just about in the books, here are your Dodgers' Cy Young, MVP, Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year and Gold Glove award-winners.
