AL Cy Young: George Kirby

George Kirby is one of the rising young stars in baseball. Making his first All Star team in 2023. George Kirby took the next step that everyone thought he would. Kirby in 2023 had a 3.9 WAR, pitching 190 innings with a 3.35 ERA,1.038 WHIP and 172 strikeouts. Good enough to finish 8th in the 2023 AL Cy Young voting. If Kirby continues to grow as a pitcher he definitely could win the Cy Young award in 2024. Right now he is +1200 odds on FanDuel, which is 6th best in the American League to win the award.

AL Manager of the Year: Scott Servais

I honestly believe that Scott Servais should have won this award back in 2021 or 2022, helping the Mariners to 90 wins in both seasons and bringing them back to the playoffs in 2022 for the first time since 2001 was a big accomplishment. In 2021 Servais finished second behind the Rays Kevin Cash and in 2022 Servais finished 3rd behind Guardians Terry Francona. If Servais can lead the Mariners back to the playoffs and win the AL West then I think he wins AL Manager of the Year.
