The season isn't over yet, but the awards have begun to roll in for the Astros. Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel and rookie shortstop Carlos Correa have been named finalists for the 2015 Players Choice Awards.

Dallas Keuchel was named a finalist for the American League Outstanding Pitcher with the Athletics' Sonny Gray and the Blue Jays' David Price.

Keuchel is 19-8 with a 2.47 ERA with three complete games, 226 innings pitched, 213 strikeouts, 49 walks, and 1.009 WHIP. He is first in wins, innings pitched, and WHIP in the American League. Price is 18-5 with a 2.45 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. Gray is 14-7 with a 2.73 ERA and 1.08 WHIP.

Correa has taken the league by storm since being called up in June. He was named a finalist in  the American League Outstanding Rookie with Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor and Twins third baseman Miguel Sano.

Correa is batting .277 (104-375) with 22 doubles, 21 home runs, 48 runs scored, 63 RBIs, 12 stolen bases, .343 OBP, .504 SLG, and .847 OPS. Lindor is batting .323 (121x375) with 12 home runs and 51 RBIs. Sano is batting .275 (73x265) with 18 home runs and 52 RBIs.

This is a bit of slight against Lance McCullers who is arguably the best rookie pitcher in 2015 -- he is 6-7 with 3.21 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP and 123 strikeouts.
