Rookie of the Year winners coming up tonight — cast your votes here

KrisBryantAwards week is here as the Baseball Writers’ Association of America begins its postseason honors this evening with the Rookie of the Year winners revealed.

Among the candidates for tonight’s awards are Kris Bryant, Matt Duffy and Jung Ho Kang in the National League and Carlos Correa, Miguel Sano and Francisco Lindor in the American League.

Who’s Buzz picking? Find out and get a rundown of each player’s basic stats after the jump.

On cardboard, this one’s a no-brainer in both leagues and that’s how Buzz leans — Kris Bryant and Carlos Correa get the vote from Buzz.

Bryant was an unquestioned hobby force entering the season with dominating years in the minors and in college before helping the Cubs into the postseason this year, while Correa was the No. 1 overall pick in 2012 and put up one of the best seasons for a shortstop of his age in MLB history.

Kang’s autographs were hot commodities this season, while Duffy didn’t have any cards — at least ones that were his — until Topps Update. Sano and Lindor have been established prospects on cardboard for a few years.

Below, you can compare them all on the field — and then cast your own vote.
