Baseball’s top awards will be handed out this week, televised night-by-night during a 6 p.m. ET broadcast on MLB Network. Here’s the awards schedule.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Monday
Favorites: Mike Trout in a landslide in the American League. A legitimate three-way race in the National League.
Yankees in the mix: None. David Phelps had a nice year, but he’s not really in the conversation.
American League finalists: Mike Trout, Yoenis Cespedes, Yu Darvish
National League finalists: Bryce Harper, Todd Frazier, Wade Miley

MANAGER OF THE YEAR
Tuesday
Favorites: Buck Showalter and Bob Melvin are in a small-market showdown in the American League. Davey Johnson in the National League.
Yankees in the mix: Joe Girardi might have gotten some third-place votes for getting the Yankees to the top of the league despite a ton of key injuries.
American League finalists: Robin Ventura, Bob Melvin, Buck Showalter
National League finalists: Dusty Baker, Bruce Bochy, Davey Johnson

CY YOUNG
Wednesday
Favorites: I had a Cy Young vote this year, and it was a tough choice for me. Justin Verlander and David Price are the co-favorites in the American League. The National League has a ton of guys who got some support, headlined locally by R.A. Dickey.
Yankees in the mix: CC Sabathia’s so-so year keeps him out of the hunt, and Hiroki Kuroda’s rocky September might hut his bottom-of-the-ballot support.
American League finalists: Justin Verlander, David Price, Jered Weaver
National League finalists: R.A. Dickey, Gio Gonzalez, Clayton Kershaw

MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
Thursday
Favorites: The American League is a two-way race between Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout, while the National League seems to have a clear favorite in Buster Posey.
Yankees in the mix: Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano will each get some mid-ballot support, but neither is considered a legitimate candidate for the actual MVP award. Rafael Soriano could also see some bottom-of-the-ballot votes if only because closers often get some MVP buzz.
American League finalists: Adrian Beltre, Miguel Cabrera, Robinson Cano, Josh Hamilton, Mike Trout
National League finalists: Ryan Braun, Chase Headley, Andrew McCutchen, Yadier Molina, Buster Posey
