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 club saw a 24-win improvement (69 wins to 93 wins) from 2016.
Under Molitor and Lovullo, the Twins made their first postseason since 2010, and the D-backs made their first playoffs since '11. Arizona's skipper earned 18 first-place votes, while Roberts got five, with Bud Black of the Colorado Rockies and Craig Counsell of the Milwaukee Brewers each garnering three.
