This is a daily BSJ off-season feature that will arrive in time for your lunch, Monday-Friday.

A spin around the leagues with the latest news, notes, and rumors around Major League Baseball:

It's award week this week with the four major awards voted on by the Baseball Writers Association of America, beginning tonight with the announcement of the American League and National League Rookies of the Year.

The consensus is that Ronald Acuna Jr. will be the winner in the N.L., with a close vote expected in the American League, between the Angels' Shohei Ohtani and the Yankees' Miguel Andujar.

Later in the week, the Red Sox will figure prominently with two awards, with Alex Cora named as a finalist for American League Manager of the Year (revealed Tuesday night) and Mookie Betts the clear front-runner for the A.L. MVP, set to be unveiled Thursday night.
