Aaron Judge finds victory over Jose Altuve with video game cover

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is a finalist for American League MVP and Rookie of the Year, giving him a chance to become just the third player to win the awards in the same year. He also hit 24 homers, had 81 RBIs and stole 32 bases to lead the Astros to the AL West division title.

The Houston Astros already captured Major League Baseball's ultimate award with their seven-game victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series, but baseball fans learned the finalists for the sport's major individual awards Monday evening.

The other AL Rookie of the Year finalists are Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi and Baltimore Orioles left fielder/first baseman Trey Mancini. While he led the league with 208 strikeouts, Judge also led the league in runs, walks and home runs.

Altuve, 27, made the All-Star team for the fifth time this season and won his third career batting title, leading the Majors with a.346 batting average. Corey Kluber of Cleveland, Chris Sale of Boston and Luis Severino from the Yankees are up for the AL Cy Young Award.

With 204 hits, Altuve became the first player in Major League history to be the outright leader in hits in four consecutive seasons, and he became the 11th player in MLB history to record 200 hits in four consecutive seasons.

The field for NL Manager of the Year also includes Colorado's Bud Black and Arizona's Torey Lovullo. Strasburg finished with third with a 2.52 ERA and was 15-4. He finished second in the NL in homers.

He is competing with Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Josh Bell and St. Louis infielder Paul DeJong.

Hinch was named along with Cleveland's Terry Francona and Minnesota's Paul Molitor.
