The 'Recent MLB MVPs' quiz

For the first time since the 1987 MLB season, both league MVPs came from non-playoff teams . In the NL, Bryce Harper beat out Juan Soto and Fernando Tatis Jr. to take home his second MVP Award, and his first as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. The 29-year-old slashed .309/.429/.615 in 2021 to go along with 35 HRs, 84 RBI, 101 Rs, and 13 SBs. Things were more clear cut over in the junior circuit where Shohei Ohtani was the presumptive favorite after putting together one of the most dynamic two-way seasons of all time. At the plate, Ohtani mashed 46 HRs, drove in exactly 100 RBI while scoring 103 Rs while swiping 26 bases. If that weren't enough, on the mound, Ohtani struck out 156 batters in just 130.1 innings, with a 9-2 win-loss record. Ohtani was a unanimous winner, joining teammate Mike Trout in a highly exclusive fraternity. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Every MLB team except for the Mets, Rays, and Diamondbacks have had at least one player take home their league's MVP Award. So with that in mind, how many of the last players from every MLB franchise to win an MVP Award can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
