Each year SB Nation gives out it's own version of the Top Rookie, Top Pitcher and Player of the Year awards. This week we are announcing our winners. Today is Rookie of the Year. The AL vote wasn't close....
|Mike Trout||Los Angeles Angels||26||130|
|Yu Darvish||Texas Rangers||16||7||55|
|Yoenis Cespedes||Oakland Athletics||9||10||37|
|Jarrod Parker||Oakland Athletics||1||6||9|
|Jesus Montero||Seattle Mariners||1||1|
|Matt Moore||Tampa Bay Rays||1||1|
|Wei-Yin Chen||Baltimore Orioles||1||1|
It looks to me that 3 of the AL voters felt that Darvish shouldn't be considered a rookie. The amazing thing to me is that someone though Jesus Montero was the third best rookie. I'd like the explanation on that one.
The NL vote was a little more interesting, but then it is a clown question.

|Wade Miley||Arizona Diamondbacks||8||21||5||108|
|Todd Frazier||Cincinnati Reds||1||4||9||26|
|Norichika Aoki||Milwaukee Brewers||14||14|
