Welcome to awards week in MLB, when the BBWAA will announce their four major annual honors over the next four days. In accordance, SB Nation baseball writers have voted on our own awards as well, and we begin with National League Rookie of the Year.
Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals easily won the National League ROY, capturing 26 of 35 first-place votes, outpacing starting pitcher Wade Miley of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Harper put together one of the best seasons by a 19-year old in recent memory, as he hit .270/.340/.477 with 22 home runs, 18 stolen bases, 57 extra-base hits and 98 runs scored in 139 games. He made his major league debut at Dodger Stadium on Apr. 28.
Mike Trout of the Angels unanimously won the SBN American League Rookie of the Year, as he garnered all 26 first-place votes.
