Snitker tied with Schumaker for the most first-place votes with eight. However, he only received two second-place and two third-place votes. Counsell had five first-place votes.
Snitker is a two-time winner of the NL Manager of the Year award. He led the Braves to the best record in baseball this season with 104 wins. The Braves tied the MLB record for most home runs in a season with 307. They also were the first team in MLB history to have slugging percentage greater than .500 at .501, among several other offensive highlights.
The Diamondbacks’ Torey Lovullo (42) and the Dodgers’ Dave Roberts (41) were fourth and fifth, respectively.
Brandon Hyde was voted AL Manager of the Year after guiding the Baltimore Orioles to an AL-best 101 victories just two years after a 110-loss season.
Hyde led Baltimore out of a difficult rebuild in which the Orioles improved to 83-79 in 2022, when Hyde finished second in voting to Cleveland’s Terry Francona. Baltimore was more than ready to take the next step this season thanks to a sparkling core of young talent. Infielder Gunnar Henderson was a unanimous AL Rookie of the Year of Monday night.
Hyde earned 27 of 30 first-place votes, with Bruce Bochy of Texas receiving the other three. Two-time winner Kevin Cash of the Tampa Bay finished third.
Hyde became the fourth Baltimore manager to win, following Buck Showalter in 2014, Davey Johnson in 1997 and Frank Robinson in 1989.
Schumaker led Miami to an 84-78 record — including 33-14 in one-run games — in his first season at the helm. The Marlins lost to Philadelphia in the Wild Card Series.
The Marlins have had four managers win this award — Schumaker, Don Mattingly in 2020, Joe Girardi in 2006 and Jack McKeon in 2003.
The voting by the Baseball Writers Association of America occurred before the start of the postseason.
