A surprising run to the American League Championship Series has paid off from Tigers' CEO and General Manager Dave Dombrowski. The Sporting News named Dombrowski as its Co-Exeucitve of the Year with the Brewers' Doug Melvin:

Dombrowski went into this past offseason looking for a middle-of-the-order bat and late-inning relief help. He signed designated hitter Victor Martinez and righthander Joaquin Benoit to multi-year deals, and both played key roles during the Tigers' rise to the top of the AL Central.

The award was the second of the day on Tuesday for the Tigers after pitcher Justin Verlander was named as the unanimous winner of the American League Cy Young Award. Verlander was put in this position by Dombrowski, who made several savvy deals to get the ace pitcher the offensive help he needed. Victor Martinez ended up being one of the most clutch hitters during the season for the Tigers, spurring them on to a 95-67 record.
