Detroit Tigers star third baseman Miguel Cabrera was voted Player of the Year by his fellow major leaguers at the Major League Baseball Players Choice Awards.

According to the official MLB website, Cabrera won back-to-back Player of the Year honors with his 44 home runs and 137 RBIs. By hitting .348 for the season, Cabrera also won his third consecutive batting title, matching an accompolishment achieved in 1920 by Rogers Hornsby for a right-handed hitter. 

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who won the National League Outstanding Pitcher award, finished runner-up to Cabrera in the voting. Cabrera also topped Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who lead the majors with 53 homers, and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout for American League Outstanding Player honors. 

Cabrera said it feels great but it didn't come easy for him.

"It's a great feeling. It was a tough season. It means a lot. 

"It's hard. A lot of people ask me the same thing. I say,'You know what we're going through every day. In the field, we focus on what we're trying to do, help our team win games.'"

Cabrera's Tigers, who lost in six games to the eventual World Series champions Boston Red Sox in six games in the 2013 ALCS, certainly made their presence felt on this day. The team swept Player of the Year, Outstanding Hitter and Outstanding Pitcher honors, the first time it was accomplished in four years.

Cabrera snagged the first two awards while his teammate, starting pitcher Max Scherzer, won the third.

For his excellence on and off the field, recently-retired New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera earned the Marvin Miller Man of the Year, in addition to him copping American League Comeback Player of the Year honors. He had 44 saves last season after sitting out most of 2012 with a knee issue. 

Pittsburgh Pirates starter Francisco Liriano won the National League equivalent.

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers was recognized as the American League Outstanding Rookie while Miami Marlins starter Jose Fernandez emerged as the National League's top rookie.

... who will probably be fine. Baseball is what happens when you're busy trying to predict baseball. All of the words in the winter months. All of the speculation. All of the certainties. Whisper this into the ear of a Tigers fan in January: The Tigers will trade for David Price in July. And watch the grin threaten to split both ears in half. There's no such thing as an invincible baseball team, but there are B ...

Aug 26 2014 10:25am CDT | Source: mets blog

David Wright missed time with a sore shoulder earlier this season, and was pulled from Sunday’s game with a stiff neck. “This year has just been frustrating with some of the injuries and some of the bothersome things that have happened,” Wright told reporters after Sunday’s game (Wall Street Journal, Aug. 26). According to the team’s hitting coach, Lamar Johnson, Wright‘s sore shoulder may be affecting his swing, though Terry Collins later said Wright is clear and no longer receiving ...
