Bob Melvin, front runner for the AL Manager of the Year Award, is reportedly headed towards a contract extension, per mutliple reports.

Melvin, who's current deal expires at the conclusion of next season, has found himself stranded in a strange situation, as his A's barrel toward an unexpected playoff berth. Last November, the A's blocked Melvin from interviewing for the same post with the Yankees. One MLB official told 95.7 The Game that the refusal  was “total and utter bullsh--.”

If Melvin wins Manager of the Year, it would be his third such honor.
