Three Orioles have been named as award finalists.

Three Orioles have been named as award finalists.

Even though the Orioles’ incredible season came to an end more than a week ago, reminders of how exceptional it was continue to surface.
Three Orioles were announced as finalists for various MLBPA awards on Tuesday.

It should be noted that these are not the ultimate awards in Major League Baseball before we get too worked up about them.
The MLBPA does not award MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, or any other honors.
The Baseball Writers Association of America bestows these awards.
None of those are going to be discussed until after the World Series.

“Well, so then, do these awards even matter?” you might be wondering.
Well, look, we need to write something, and it’s offseason here.
These Orioles players are undoubtedly appreciative of the praise.
However, if that’s what you’re asking, players do not receive footnotes for these on their Baseball Reference page.

That being said, Ryan O’Hearn, Kyle Bradish, and Gunnar Henderson have been named finalists. Henderson is a candidate for the Outstanding Rookie in the AL.
Bradish is a candidate for the AL Outstanding Pitcher award.
Additionally, O’Hearn may win AL Comeback Player.

Henderson is most likely the lone winner out of the three.
The argument for Gerrit Cole is probably too strong, even though Bradish had a fantastic season. And while it was amazing to watch O’Hearn emerge from nowhere as a productive player, Liam Hendriks should definitely be named the winner for overcoming a cancer diagnosis to reach the field, even though his season was cut short after just five games by an elbow injury that required Tommy John to treat.

It’s very important to be nominated for year-end awards.
Even the less-noticed awards tend to demonstrate that you assembled a body of work over a lengthy season, even though being named to an all-star game roster frequently indicates that you had a strong half of baseball.
It’s something to be happy about, and it’s interesting to see more Orioles than normal named finalists.

Baumler is making progress and catching up in the Fall League |

It’s good to hear that Carter Baumler is on the mend and beginning to close the gap with his draft class peers.
Due to arm injuries, he has only played in 11 games as a professional.
However, his reputation is still not too bad.
Eventually, the Orioles should develop him into a respectable big league option.

Regarding the pitching staff, hopefully the Orioles are being truthful with themselves. This group needs work, but it’s fine now.
Grayson Rodriguez and Kyle Bradish will remain in this world.
Everyone else must step up a notch.
