Hyun Jin Ryu and Teoscar Hernandez (and Ryan Tepera???) got MVP votes

The winners of the American and National League Most Valuable Player Awards were announced on Thursday.

In the AL, Jose Abreu of the Chicago White Sox took home the MVP after a huge season offensively. Abreu slashed a .317/.370/.617 line with 19 homers and a league-leading 60 RBIs in the middle of Chicago’s potent lineup.
Elsewhere in the AL, two Blue Jays got some consideration further down the ballot. Teoscar Hernandez got a ninth-place vote and six tenth-place votes while Hyun Jin Ryu, who finished third in Cy Young voting, got an eighth- and tenth-place vote.
Here’s the AL’s breakdown…

Over in the National League, Canadian Legend Freddie Freeman won MVP by a pretty wide margin, beating out Mookie Betts, who the Red Sox decided last winter they were too cheap to pay.
The best part of the NL’s ballot? The fact that Ryan Tepera (yes, that Ryan Tepera) earned himself one tenth-place vote.
