Ryan Noda has proven to be one of the best additions that the Oakland Athletics made this last offseason. He is second on the team in fWAR, trailing only rookie Zack Gelof. His contributions are beyond the field though and he was named as the winner of the Catfish Hunter Award for the 2023 season prior to Saturday’s game.

Noda is the first rookie to ever receive the honor.
