Centerfielder Carlos Gomez was a unanimous selection as the Milwaukee Brewers' 2013 most valuable player in annual balloting by the Milwaukee chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Gomez received all eight first-place ballots to total 40 points. Voters made three selections for each award with five points for a first-place vote three for a second and one for a third. Veteran right-hander Kyle Lohse was a unanimous selection as the most valuable pitcher. Lohse also was named the team's top newcomer receiving seven first-place votes. Rightfielder Norichika Aoki received five first-place votes to edge reliever Brandon Kintzler as the team's "unsung hero." And catcher Jonathan Lucroy received six first-place votes to receive the team's "good guy" award which goes to a player who has been easily accessible and cooperative with the media as well as a positive force in the community. Gomez easily claimed the MVP award over shortstop Jean Segura (18 points) and Lucroy (13). He was a first-time all-star selection batting .284 with 24 homers 83 RBI and 40 stolen bases in 147 games. Gomez became the first player in franchise history to accumulate at least 20 homers and 40 steals in a season and was the only major-leaguer to accomplish that feat in 2013.
