With the end of the MLB season closing in, it's time to make your 2018 AL MVP predictions. Whether you think getting on base and driving in runs warrants contention, or you're more of a defense person, the MVP candidates handle both. In other words, the most valuable player should be a powerhouse both offensively and defensively. Even considering this, there are quite a few players who've made themselves worthy candidates this season. Of all the top players in baseball right now, though, who will win the AL MVP Award for the 2018 season?
Without a doubt, Mike Trout just may be the best contender for the MVP this year, but there's a select few players who should still be considered. Red Sox star Mookie Betts is having a remarkable season, not to mention José Altuve of the Astros and the Mariners' Jean Segura, who's proving to be one of the best short stops in the game. Of course, only one of these baseball greats can take the honors of AL MVP—who do you think it will be?
