St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina will learn Thursday night whether he's the Most Valuable Player in the National League.
Molina is one of three NL finalists for the award, which will be announced Thursday evening on MLB Network.
The other finalists are Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and Pittsburgh center fielder Andrew McCutchen.
Molina hit a career-high .319 with a franchise-record 44 doubles for a catcher. He set career marks in RBIs (80), runs scored (68), and hits (161), and recently won his sixth consecutive Gold Glove.
He hit .373 with runners in scoring position, sixth best in the league.
McCutchen hit .317 with 21 homers and 84 RBIs, with a .404 on-base percentage and a .508 slugging percentage.
Goldschmidt tied for the NL lead in homers with 36, and led the league with 125 RBIs and a .551 slugging percentage. He recently won his first Gold Glove.
McCutchen, who last season also hit over .300 with a .400-plus on-base percentage and a .500-plus slugging percentage, appears to be the front-runner for the award.
The AL Award will also be presented Thursday night, with Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera considered likely to win for the second consecutive year.
He is joined as a finalist by Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
