Brown received 78 percent of votes for the Schmidt Award. He was an NL All-Star in his first full season as a regular, and leads the Phillies in homers (27) and RBIs (81) despite missing 22 games in the second half. Chase Utley finished second in voting.

Lee was nearly a unanimous choice to win his second Carlton Award. He received 92 percent of votes. Lee leads the Phillies in wins (14), ERA among starters (2.95) and strikeouts (201).

Manuel received 83 percent of votes for the Special Achievement Award, which he earned for becoming the 58th manager to win 1,000 games. Manuel previously won the Green Award in 2011 for surpassing Gene Mauch for most wins as manager in franchise history.

Frandsen edged former Phillie Michael Young for the True Pro Award given to the player who best exemplifies McGraw's good-natured personality and for his professional cooperation with beat writers. Three other players and Manuel also received votes.

The awards were instituted by the BBWAA Philadelphia chapter in 2004. They will be presented on the field before Saturday night's game against the New York Mets.
