Lovullo is only the eighth skipper to capture a Manager of the Year Award in his first full season as a Major League manager - but this is actually the fourth consecutive season with a first-year victor.

The D-Backs earned a wild-card spot and advanced into the divisional round of the playoffs.

Lovullo, who became the third Arizona manager to win the Manager of Year Award, collected 18 first-place votes, beating out Dodgers manager Dave Roberts by 56 points and the Rockies' Bud Black by 68.

How's that for a rookie campaign? The Diamondbacks would fall to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first round, but the team did a complete 360 to its win total from the 2016 year.

In the AL, Molitor also received 18 of a possible 30 first-place votes, with Cleveland's Terry Francona receiving 11 first-place votes and finishing second. Baker, who also received six second-place votes and two thirds, was dismissed by the Nationals a little more than a week after they were eliminated in the National League Division Series. The Cleveland Indians' Terry Francona, the 2016 victor, was the runner-up with 11 first-place votes.

Molitor won the AL version of the award for leading the Twins to a wild-card berth this year after they lost 103 games in 2016. Chicago Cubs skipper Joe Maddon finished in sixth. The Twins used a staggering 36 different pitchers in 2017 and traded away closer Brandon Kintzler and starter Jaime Garcia at the trade deadline, after arriving at the end of July three games under.500.

Molitor, who was elected to the Hall of Fame as a player in 2004, is the second Hall of Famer to be named Manager of the Year. Turns out it was enough to give Molitor this award too.
