(AP) — The Baseball Writers’ Association of America has announced the winners for the American and National League managers of the year.

The Minnesota Twins’ one-year turnaround has led Paul Molitor to be named the AL Manager of the Year. The Twins went 85-77 this past season and earned their first playoff spot since 2010 after losing 103 games in 2016.

Molitor received 18 of 30 first-place votes. Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona received 11 first-place votes to finish second in the balloting, one spot ahead of Houston’s A.J. Hinch.

Torey Lovullo is the NL Manager of the Year after guiding the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 93-69 record and a wild-card berth in his first year at the helm. Lovullo received 18 of 30 first-place votes and 111 points in voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

Dave Roberts of the pennant-winning Los Angeles Dodgers was second, and Colorado’s Bud Black was third.
