The 2014 Major League Baseball season has reached the final turn. As the 30 clubs make their way down the stretch toward the end of the line, individual players are wrapping up impressive campaigns that soon enough could result in an after-season award.
Yes, it's time again to check in with an update of the 10 prominent individual award races as the final quarter of the season plays out. Back around the All-Star break a month ago, when the season was a little more than halfway through, we took a look at the battles for the very same awards.
Another quarter of the year has gone a long way toward clarifying where things stand in each league in the chases for Manager of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young Award winner and MVP. Also included? A batch of honorable mentions for all five categories.
Even though there isn't much time left in 2014, a lot still can change between now and the end of the season. That last turn sometimes can be a doozy.
