The last of the Texas Rangers’ affiliates still going in the regular season is Triple A Round Rock, which will see its season end Oct. 3 in conjunction with the MLB season.

Of the four categories below, Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year were the toughest to determine. Comeback Player of the Year was a shoo-in, though not without quality candidates, and the same goes for Breakthrough Player of the Year.
There are three nominees for three of the awards, and four for another. The lists started out much larger.
Without further adieu, here are the nominees and the winners.
