The American and National League MVPs won’t be announced until after the World Series in November.
But, with the season ending Sunday, USA TODAY Sports reveals its consensus MVPs for each team (Note: Statistics through Saturday):
Baltimore Orioles: SS Manny Machado — Even though he spent the last two months with the Dodgers, Machado was still the best player on a team that lost 115 games, batting .315 with 24 home runs and 65 RBI before he was traded.
Boston Red Sox: OF Mookie Betts — Not only is he the MVP of a 107-win club, he’s also the front-runner for the AL MVP Award. He leads the AL with a .346 batting average and is just the second player in franchise history to notch a 30 homer, 30 stolen base season.
New York Yankees: SS Didi Gregorius — Edging out Aaron Hicks, Gregorius set career highs in homers (27) and runs (89) while batting .268.
Tampa Bay Rays: LHP Blake Snell — Snell, a front-runner for the AL Cy Young award, led the majors with 21 wins and posted a 1.90 ERA. He also dominated opponents, limiting them to a .178 batting average.
Toronto Blue Jays: 1B Justin Smoak — Smoak was the most consistent batter in the lineup, leading the team in RBI (77) and OPS (.809) and tied for the lead in home runs (25).
Chicago White Sox: 1B Jose Abreu — Abreu, who made his first All-Star start this summer, battled injuries over the final month and a half of the season, but still led the team in doubles (36) and RBI (78).
Cleveland Indians: 2B Jose Ramirez — Mr. 100-100-100 and 30-30. Ramirez has 108 runs, 105 RBI and 106 walks and 38 home runs and 34 steals. Tough to beat despite a late-season slump.
Detroit Tigers: OF Nick Castellanos — He filled the gap in the absence of Miguel Cabrera, becoming the eighth player in franchise history to produce at least 40 doubles and 20 home runs.
Kansas City Royals: 2B Whit Merrifield — Merrifield leads the AL in hits (191) and will capture his second stolen base title in just his second full season in the majors.
Minnesota Twins: RHP Jose Berrios — Berrios, 24, ended the season strong and passed the 200-strikeout plateau, with 202, in 192 1/3 innings.
Houston Astros: 3B Alex Bregman — An AL MVP candidate, Bregman had a historic season. He is the first player in baseball history to collect 50 doubles and 30 homers in the same season while playing the majority of his games at third base.
Los Angeles Angels: OF Mike Trout — Trout, still the best offensive player in baseball, led the majors in OPS (1.090), OBP (.460) and finished second in walks (122), despite missing three weeks in August. Oh, and he hit 39 homers, two shy of his personal best.
Oakland Athletics: DH Khris Davis — Davis leads the majors with 48 homers and is second with 123 RBI. His home run total set a career-high mark and ranks tied for fourth in franchise history — for a club that once had Mark McGwire.
Seattle Mariners: OF Mitch Haniger — In his second full big-league season, Haniger has developed into an all-around player. His 12 outfield assists are tied for the lead in the majors with two others.
Texas Rangers: INF Jurickson Profar — After several years of not living up to expectations, Profar slugged 20 homers and served a significant role as an injury replacement for shortstop Elvis Andrus and third baseman Adrian Beltre.
Atlanta Braves: 1B Freddie Freeman — Freeman’s veteran presence — and major league leading 191 hits — has led a young club to win the NL East.
Miami Marlins: C J.T. Realmuto — The first-time All-Star was the best catcher in baseball this season. He leads all catchers with a .277 batting average and has a career-high 21 home runs in a lineup with very little protection.
New York Mets: RHP Jacob deGrom — DeGrom set a major league single-season record with 24 consecutive quality starts and posted an astounding 1.70 ERA … and only won 10 games.
Philadelphia Phillies: RHP Aaron Nola — Nola established himself as the ace of the staff with a 17-6 record and 2.35 ERA.
Washington Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer — Scherzer, who led the NL in wins and strikeouts, became the fifth pitcher with 300 strikeouts in a single season since 2000, joining Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling, Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale.
Chicago Cubs: 2B Javier Baez — An electrifying player on the field, Baez spent considerable time at three infield positions and ranks among the top five in the NL with 34 HRs and 111 RBI.
Cincinnati Reds: 2B Scooter Gennett — For the second consecutive season, Gennett has had a strong year offensively, posting a .310/.357/.490 slash line with 23 home runs and 92 RBI.
Milwaukee Brewers: OF Christian Yelich — Yelich, the leading candidate for the NL MVP, has already captured the NL batting title. In September alone, he’s hitting .360/.500/.826 with 10 home runs to give the club a chance of winning the NL Central.
Pittsburgh Pirates: RHP Jameson Taillon — Taillon finished his breakout campaign with 22 consecutive games allowing three earned runs or fewer, a streak surpassed this season only by Mets ace Jacob deGrom.
St. Louis Cardinals: 1B/3B Matt Carpenter — After a slow start. Carpenter has slugged 36 home runs and could become the first Cardinal to win the home run title since Albert Pujols in 2010.
Arizona Diamondbacks: 1B Paul Goldschmidt — On May 22, Goldy was batting .198. He then got hot and became part of the NL MVP discussion, batting .328 with 28 home runs and 70 RBI since then.
Colorado Rockies: 3B Nolan Arenado — Arenado beat Trevor Story for the honors. The Gold Glove corner infielder will finish with 30-plus homers and 100-plus RBI for the fourth consecutive season.
Los Angeles Dodgers: 1B/3B Max Muncy — Muncy began the season in the minors, but became a fixture in the lineup in mid-April. He played four positions on defense and kept himself in the lineup by showing off his power with 33 homers.
San Diego Padres: RHP Kirby Yates — Yates has been the teams’ most reliable pitcher out of the bullpen, posting a 2.07 ERA and 12.7 K/9.
San Francisco Giants: RHP Dereck Rodríguez — Rodriguez, the son of Hall of Famer Pudge Rodriguez, was the club’s best starting pitcher in 2018. His 2.50 ERA would be the lowest by a Giants rookie (minimum of 100 innings) since Hoyt Wilhelm (2.43) in 1952.
