Rays GM Erik Neander wins MLB Executive of the Year honor

Rays GM Erik Neander was named MLB Executive of the Year in a vote of his peers announced Monday night at the GM meetings in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Neander was honored for the team’s success in winning 96 games and returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2013. The press release announcing the award detailed many of the moves Neander and staff made but made no mention of them operating with the lowest payroll in the game.

“I am both humbled and honored to be recognized by Major League Baseball and the executives who voted on the award,’’ Neander said in a statement released by the team.

So, who would you give this award to if you were voting on it?
