Rick Hummel


Rick Hummel is a Cardinals beat writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

He is first to win managing award after not having played professionally. Milwaukee's Counsell finishes close second. Washington's Martinez and Houston's Hinch, who opposed each other in World Series, both finish fifth in respective leagues.

'Lib' Shildt had worked in front office of Baltimore's Class AA franchise in Charlotte, N.C., when her young son was a clubhouse assistant. Mike Shildt is candidate for National League Manager of the Year to be announced Tuesday night. 

Free-agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna has 10 days in which to accept or reject the $17.8 million offer. In 2019, Ozuna missed 28 games to a hand injury, drove in 89 runs and hit 29 homers but batted only .243, going 12 for 100 at one stretch late in the season.  Shildt is finalist for NL Manager of the Year. 

Five other Cardinals were contenders — 1B Paul Goldschmidt, catcher Yadier Molina, CF Harrison Bader, starting pitcher Jack Flaherty and SS Paul DeJong. Molina was denied a 10th Gold Glove. Kolten Wong had been a runner-up himself last year.
