The Baseball Writers' Association of America announced three finalists for each of 2014's major awards during a live television broadcast on Tuesday night. The winners will be announced next week. Here's the schedule:

Monday, Nov. 10: Rookie of the Year
Tuesday, Nov. 11: Manager of the Year
Wednesday, Nov. 12: Cy Young
Thursday, Nov. 13: Most Valuable Player

Both the AL and NL awards will be announced on the same day, which is relatively new. In the past each league was given its own day for the Cy Young and MVP.

As a reminder, the BBWAA ballots are due after the end of the regular season but before the postseason. The playoffs do not factor into the voting. These are regular season awards, after all. Here are the finalists:
