Diamondbacks Torey Lovullo wins NL Manager of Year

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo was named National League Manager of the Year on Tuesday.

Dave Roberts of the Dodgers was second and Colorado's Bud Black was third. Roberts was one of five managers to receive first-place votes this year - Lovullo (18 first-place votes), Roberts (five), Black (three), Milwaukee's Craig Counsell (three) and Washington's Dusty Baker (one).

Lovullo, who is the seventh manager to win the award in his first season as a manager, guided the Diamondbacks to a 93-69 season-a 24-win improvement from 2016.

Paul Molitor of the Minnesota Twins was named Lovullo's counterpart as the American League 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.

The Minnesota Twins' Paul Molitor (18 first-place votes) was the American League victor. "If you win rookie of the year, the Cy Young or the MVP, it's about the player". Houston's A.J. Hinch received the only other first-place vote and finished third. The Diamondbacks finished in the first NL Wild Card spot and beat the Rockies in a one-game playoff before being swept by the Dodgers in the Division Series. Nobody expected a postseason berth for the Twins - perhaps not even their front office, because they were sellers at the trade deadline. "An award like this reflects the work of the organization and everyone who contributed to the Twins having a turnaround season".

Molitor, 61, already put his name in the record books this year because his Twins team was the first to ever go from a 100-loss season to the playoffs the next season.
