Angels' Mike Trout named AL Rookie of the Year

NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels and Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals have been voted Rookies of the Year for their breakout seasons following late-April call-ups from the minor leagues.

Trout received all 28 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America's AL panel and was the eighth unanimous AL pick and the first since Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria in 2008.

Harper got 16 of 32 first-place votes and 112 points from the NL panel. Arizona pitcher Wade Miley was second with 12 first-place votes and 105 points, followed by Cincinnati slugger Todd Frazier with three firsts and 45 points.

At 21 years old, Trout is the youngest player to win the AL Rookie of the Year Award. He hit .325 with 30 home runs and 83 RBI this season. He led the league with 49 stolen bases and 129 runs scored.
