Mike Trout wins SBN AL Rookie of the Year

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

The rookie center fielder ran away with the AL Rookie of the Year award from SB Nation bloggers.

It should come as no surprise that a rookie who finished the year hitting .326/.399/.564 with 30 home runs, 83 runs batted in and 49 stolen bases was voted as the SBN AL Rookie of the Year. In fact, the Los Angeles Angels' own Mike Trout didn't just beat the rest of the candidates, he destroyed them.

Trout was the only player to get first place votes in the American League with 26 of them. The four guys behind him all play for a division rival with Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish and Oakland A's outfielder Yoenis Cespedes in second and third place. A's pitcher Jarrod Parker and Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero rounded out the top five.

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper picked up the SBN NL Rookie of the Year award, but it wasn't a clean sweep. Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley picked up eight first place votes but was still well behind Harper in the total points tally.

The Baseball Writers Association of America will announce their picks at about 3:00 p.m. PST today.
