The Washington Nationals have several players in the running for regular season awards. We take a look at their odds.

The MLB regular season has come to an end, and the Washington Nationals finished with the National League’s second-best record. The Nats managed to win 97 games, and are by far one of the most complete teams in the league.

Since their roster is so well-rounded, they have several players in the running for regular season awards. Most teams have a player or two at best, but the Nats have many different players who could receive votes for different awards.

While personal accomplishments and awards must take a backseat to team success, they do contribute to the team and it is always nice to be recognized for your hard work.

Last year, the Nats had several players receive awards. Max Scherzer won the National League Cy Young Award, Daniel Murphy won the National League Silver Slugger Award for second basemen, Wilson Ramos won the National League Silver Slugger Award for catchers, and Anthony Rendon won the National League Comeback Player of the Year Award.

This is a truly star-studded team, which will become evident in October. This team is prepared to go on a deep postseason run, something the team has yet to do since returning to DC. No matter far this team goes in October, they should rack up lots of individual awards for their regular season performance.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at which Nats are in the running for each award and where they stand.
