The 2022 MLB MVP Winners Announced

The odds of winning the MLB MVP Award always tend to move quite a bit throughout every season, and you can usually find some great value. In fact, an early season bet on the two eventual winners in 2022 would have felt similar to hitting the jackpot at an online casino

There are some MVP races that are hard to predict, but it was widely assumed what players would win the award this season. The MVP is decided by writers, and they had a pretty easy decision to make. 

A couple of sluggers were the choice this season, and they came from two of the most legendary teams in baseball history. Both players dominated with voters, but there was some drama and some interesting updates when looking at what players came next in the voting results. 

Judge is King of the American League

Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees was named MVP of the American League, and he was nearly unanimous. The judge picked up 28 of the 30 possible first-place votes, with the other two going to Shohei Ohtani. 

This race seemed to be tight until the final month of the regular season when Judge just continued to belt home runs to set a new American League record for long balls. Judge set a new American League record with 62 home runs on the year and nearly won the Triple Crown as well. He became the first Yankees outfielder to win the AL MVP Award since Mickey Mantle all the way back in 1962.  

This isn’t the first honor that Judge has received since joining the American League, as he was also named Rookie of the Year back in 2017. He was runner-up for the MVP Award that season as well, but he left little doubt this time around. 

Ohtani would have been an easy choice for AL MVP in nearly every other season, and he still did things that have never been done before in the history of baseball. The two-way star for the Angels received nothing lower than a second-place vote, as he was the only other player that had a case to knock off Judge. 

Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros finished in third place in the AL MVP race, but he ended up getting the biggest prize. Alvarez and the Astros went on to win the World Series, and it was Alvarez that delivered several times throughout the run. 

Goldschmidt Beats Out Teammate in NL

The National League MVP Award went to Paul Goldschmidt of the St. Louis Cardinals as the star first baseman had a career year. Goldschmidt beat out teammate Nolan Arenado and San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado to be given the award. 

The 35-year-old first baseman picked up 22 of the possible 30-place votes as the race was a lot tighter than it was in the American League. Goldschmidt was also challenged to win the Triple Crown in the National League, but he ended up faltering down the stretch a bit. 

This is the first time since 1992 that a player at least 35 or older has won the MVP Award, and it’s only the sixth time in league history that it has happened. Goldschmidt received eight second-place votes, as it’s clear that he was one of the top two choices to win the award. 

Manny Machado finished in second place in the National League as he picked up seven first-place votes. Arenado received the other first-place votes, but he was a distant third to his fellow third baseman. 

Goldschmidt has played 12 seasons at the MLB level, and he has finished in the top six of MVP voting six different times. Arenado won his 10th consecutive Gold Glove Award in the National League and finished in the top six for the fifth time in his career. 

Machado was forced to carry the San Diego Padres this season after teammate Fernando Tatis Jr. was injured and then suspended for PED use. Freddie Freeman and Mookie Betts came in at a fourth and fifth place in the voting as both players had big seasons for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
