Lovullo, who is the seventh manager to win the award in his first season as a manager, guided the Diamondbacks to a 93-69 season-a 24-win improvement from 2016.
Under Molitor and Lovullo, the Twins made their first postseason since 2010, and the D-backs made their first playoffs since '11. Roberts was one of five managers to receive first-place votes this year - Lovullo (18 first-place votes), Roberts (five), Black (three), Milwaukee's Craig Counsell (three) and Washington's Dusty Baker (one).
How's that for a rookie campaign? The Diamondbacks would fall to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first round, but the team did a complete 360 to its win total from the 2016 year. Kirk Gibson won it in 2011 and Bob Melvin won it in 2007.
