Angel Mike Trout unanimously wins American League Rookie of the Year

November 12, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels was a unanimous winner of the AL Rookie of the Year after a season that also put him in contention for the MVP award.

Center-fielder Trout, 21, hit .326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs since his call-up from the minor leagues in late April.

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

The National League Rookie of the Year was scheduled to be announced Monday night.
