Corey Seager, the NL Rookie of the Year, did not win the MVP award but finished tied for the highest MVP votes for a Dodgers rookie. The NL Most Valuable Player award was awarded to Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs, while Daniel Murphy finished in second on Thursday. The award was given to the player who was the most impactful to his team.

Corey Seager finished with 240 points for the MVP award, landing in third place. He collected 11 second-place votes, 10 third-place votes, and seven fourth-place votes. Kris Bryant is one of three players who won Rookie of the Year, MVP, and a World Series within their first two seasons and joins Dustin Pedroia, and Cal Ripken Jr.

There were two Dodgers other than Seager that received MVP votes.

Justin Turner finished ninth with 44 points and appeared on 13 ballots, and Yasmani Grandal only received one seventh-place vote.

Even though Corey Seager did not win the MVP, he is the MVP in the hearts of Dodgers fans.

Congrats to Corey Seager on a successful 2016 season!
