Awards are special, but being picked from your peers is truly an honor.
The MLB Awards will be announced soon, but the Players Choice Awards have been revealed courtesy of the MLBPA. The star-studded list of NL winners are not too surprising.
Miami's Giancarlo Stanton, who led the major leagues with 59 home runs, won NL Outstanding Player.
Despite a disappointing postseason, the Nationals still saw two players that earned Players Choice Awards.
Ryan Zimmerman won Comeback Player of the Year, while Max Scherzer won Outstanding Pitcher.
Zimmerman was two RBI shy of a career-high, driving in 108. He added 36 home runs and a .303 batting average.
Scherzer, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, is a fitting choice as the MLBPA's Outstanding Pitcher, posting a 16-6 record and 2.51 ERA.

To end the list of big names is the youngest one of all, Cody Bellinger. The Dodger phenom's 39 home runs, 97 RBI and .267 BA earned him the Outstanding Rookie nod.
You can argue the Players Choice Awards are worth more than the MLB Awards because they're voted by the actual players on the field.
Congrats to this year's honor roll!
