1

AL MVP - Mike Trout

In six of the last seven seasons, Trout has finished in the top-two of AL MVP voting. He is currently leading the AL in homers (28), RBIs (67), on-base percentage (.453), and slugging percentage (.646), all while performing admirably in center field.

2

NL MVP - Cody Bellinger

Neck-and-neck in the MVP race with Christian Yelich, Bellinger gets the nod due to the Dodgers having a much-better record than Milwaukee. His 70 runs lead the NL, his 71 RBIs, .432 on-base percentage, and .692 slugging percentage are second, and his 30 home runs are tied for second.
