QUESTION: Houston second baseman Jose Altuve is considered one of the favorites to win the AL MVP Award. Who were the last AL teammates to win the MVP and World Series MVP awards in the same season?


ANSWER: If Altuve wins, he and George Springer would be the first AL teammates to claim both awards since 1984, when reliever Willie Hernandez won the MVP after Alan Trammell received the World Series MVP following a sweep of San Diego. The last NL teammates to take both awards were the Cubs' Kris Bryant and Ben Zobrist last year.
