Randy Arozarena named Most Valuable Player of ALCSOctober 17, 2020 | 08:53 PM
Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena was named the Most Valuable Player of the American League Championship Series.
Analysis: Arozarena becomes the first rookie position player to win the honor. The 25-year-old outfielder was certainly deserving, having hit .321 (9-for-28) with four homers and six RBI in the series -- including a two-run blast off of Lance McCullers in the opening inning of Game 7 on Saturday. Through the whole postseason, he's hitting .382 (21-for-55) with seven long balls and 10 RBI through his first 14 games. He'll look to continue his impressive breakout on baseball's biggest stage beginning on Tuesday against the winner of Sunday's Game 7 showdown between the Braves and Dodgers.
