MLB: Goldschmidt finishes second in MVP voting

For once this offseason, Paul Goldschmidt didn’t win an award.

However, it would have been some nice hardware for Goldschmidt to own.

Goldschmidt finished second to Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates in voting for National League Most Valuable Player. McCutchen took home 28 of 30 first-place votes, while Goldschmidt earned the most second-place votes (15).

All in all, it was a solid offseason for Goldschmidt*.

  • National League Hank Aaron Award
  • National League Rawlings Gold Glove (First Base)
  • National League Silver Slugger

Goldschmidt led the NL with 36 home runs, 125 runs batted in, 332 total bases, a .551 slugging percentage and an OPS of .952. He batted at a .302 clip this season.

* As Lost Cat noted below, Goldschmidt was also named to the National League All-Star Team back in July and was voted in by his peers.
