Prior to the contest league awards were announced. The Phillies Oliver Dunn was named “Breakout Player of the Year” - “The 26-year-old, who was a Minor League Rule 5 pick in 2022 taken from the Yankees, led the Phillies' organization with his 148 wRC+ during the regular season for Double-A Reading. He proved that was no fluke this fall as he comfortably handled three infield positions, finished perfect in stolen base attempts – going 12-for-12 – and ranked second in triples (4), fourth in OPS (1.071), and fifth in average (.342).” - Rob Terranova - MLB
