MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers-Media Day
Andy Pages earned one of three High-A MVP awards.

Dodgers Minor League outfielders Andy Pages and Ryan Ward ended their seasons with some well-earned awards this year. Pages was named the High-A central division MVP, while Ward made the division’s All-Star team.

Pages posted a .265 ERA with a league-leading 31 homers and 88 RBI for the Great Lakes Loons. The 20-year-old was originally meant to go to the Angels as part of the first attempted Mookie Betts trade, and he’s proven worth keeping around.

“He’s a special player, a special human,” Loons manager Austin Chubb said at the end of the season. “I’m looking forward to watch him be a Dodger for some time.”

Ward, meanwhile, batted .278 and trailed just behind his teammate with 27 homers and 84 RBI. He drew attention for his rock-solid defense early in the season and finished as one of the best-hitting prospects for L.A. across all of its affiliates.
