Yankees' Aaron Judge Unanimously Wins AL Rookie Of The Year Award

Yankees' Aaron Judge Unanimously Wins AL Rookie Of The Year Award

Judge, who was named an All-Star midway through the year, defeated Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi and Baltimore Orioles outfielder Trey Mancini.

That was confirmed Monday, as the Baseball Writers Association of America revealed the winners and the ballots. He'll hope to become the first MVP and Rookie of the Year since Ichiro Suzuki did it in 2001.

Bellinger, 22, began the season in the minors and was called up on April 25.

Bellinger also finished the year with a.933 OPS-10th among NL hitters-and a robust 4.0 wins above replacement, per FanGraphs. Bellinger beat out Pirates first baseman Josh Bell and Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong. These are regular season awards only. He was an integral part of the Yankees' surprising run to the postseason in 2017.

Terms of Judge's deal with Pepsi were not disclosed, though Toman said the Yankee will for now be associated with regular Pepsi and not the larger brand PepsiCo, which includes Frito Lay in its business portfolio with Tostitos.

Only three previous times have both leagues' Rookie of the Year been awarded unanimously: Benito Santiago and Mark McGwire in 1987, Mike Piazza and Tim Salmon in 1993 and Scott Rolen and Nomar Garciaparra in 1997. Derek Jeter was the other. Monday's honour made him the Dodgers' 18th rookie of the year victor, by far the most of any franchise, and their second in a row, after Corey Seager in 2016. Like Seager, Bellinger wasn't even a question. However, they continued to overachieve come October. Bellinger batted.267 with 87 runs scored, 26 doubles, four triples, 39 home runs, 97 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 132 games.

Like Judge, Bellinger struck out a good amount - enough to earn some critics, but not almost enough to consider giving this award to anyone else.

It wasn't the only honor Judge could win.
