Among the honorees will be third baseman Adrian Beltre, who was announced today as the Texas Rangers 2016 Player of the Year in voting conducted by the Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America.
It marks the fourth time that Beltre has been selected as the Rangers' Player of the Year (2012-14), matching Ruben Sierra for the second most such honors all-time behind five each for Juan Gonzalez and Michael Young.
Beltre batted .300 with 32 home runs and 104 RBI in 153 games for Texas in 2016. He tied for 9th in the A.L. in RBI and posted the league's 12th highest batting average. Beltre also won his 5th Rawlings Gold Glove for defensive excellence at third base while placing 7th in the 2016 BBWAA A.L. MVP voting announced on Thursday.
Other award recipients will be announced in the upcoming weeks, including the Rangers' 2016 Pitcher and Rookie of the Year, the Harold McKinney Good Guy Award, and the Richard Durrett Hardest Working Man Award.
