2022 MLB midseason awards picks: Shohei Ohtani beats Aaron Judge for MVP; unanimous Cy Young selections, more

The All-Star destroy is right here; allow's hand out some unofficial hardware The pomp and condition of the 2022 MLB 

All-Star Game is upon us and meaningful ordinary season games will go back later this week. When they do, 18 of the 30

teams will be within 5 video games of a postseason spot With fifty seven percent of the 2022 everyday season is within the

books (1,386 of two,430 games have bee performed), this is as top a time as any at hand out midseason awards. 

To determine our midseason awards our 4 CBS Sports MLB writers (R.J. Anderson, Mike Axisa, Dayn Perry, Matt Snyder) and intrepid editor 

(Stephen Pianovich) each hypothetical poll four majors award (MVP, Cy Young, Rookie and Manager of the Year) in league policies:

Individual ballots for every award include 3 players. In reality, the MVP poll is 10 players deep and the Cy Young ballot  is 5 players deep. 

Rookie of the Year and Manager of the Year every consist of 3 slots The scoring machine: Three points for a first-place vote,

two factors for a second-place vote, and one factor for a 3rd-vicinity vote. Most points wins. Nice and clean.

Just to show you the way plenty can trade, final year we did not supply Bryce Harper a unmarried NL MVP vote or Robbie Ray a 

unmarried AL Cy Young vote in our midseason awards Those two took domestic the hardware way to monster 2nd halves.

There remains a lot baseball to be played and so many awards race narratives to build. This is just a photo in time. Nothing extra.

Below are our 2022 midseason award balloting effects as well as a quick blurb on the MVP Young, Rookie Manager races. Away we go

My hunch is Judge could win MVP if the season ended these days, however on our ballots, Ohtani reigns ultimate. He started past due (quite tons the other of Judge),
