Jeff Banister has won the BBWAA AL Manager of the Year Award.

And Joe Maddon wins the NL Manager of the Year Award. 

AL Manager of the Year: Jeff Banister

This is a bit of a surprise as many thought A.J. Hinch of the Astros would be the favorite, with his leading of that young Houston team to the playoffs.  Jeff Banister of the Texas Rangers, however, wins with 17 first place votes.

NL Manager of the Year: Joe Maddon

This is not as much of a surprise as the AL pick.  Much like A.J. Hinch, Joe Maddon of the Chicago Cubs was instrumental in fast-tracking a rebuilding process.  With the likes of Jake Arrieta and Kris Bryant, the Cubs fulfilled their potential much sooner than expected. Joe Maddon wins with 18 first place votes.
