Mookie Betts is a two-time World Series champion, and now has a chance to be a two-time MVP.
The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder was named a finalist for the National League award Monday along with Atlanta Braves’ Freddie Freeman and San Diego Padres’ Manny Machado.
This, of course, was Betts’ debut season in Los Angeles after being traded in February by the Boston Red Sox. Betts finished the abbreviated campaign batting .292 with 16 home runs and 39 RBIs.
Betts also won the World Series and the American League MVP award in 2018 while with the Red Sox.
The winner will be announced Thursday, Nov. 12.
