Today's SBNation Award is the Rookie of the Year, of which there are two. The winner in the American League is Michael Pineda, who will not be traded for Joey Votto. Pineda gave the Mariners 171 innings this season as a 22 year old, posting a 3.42 FIP and a 3.36 SIERA to go with a 3.74 ERA. He struck out an impressive 9.1 per 9 while only walking 2.89. The voting:
Craig Kimbrel is your winning in the National League, as he anchored an outstanding Braves bullpen until he just couldn't do it any longer. Despite the regrettable September, Kimbrel displayed the pitching prowess of a legitimate gangster, striking out nearly 15 (that's fiffff teeeeeeeeeeen) batters per nine innings pitched. His 3.2 fWAR nearly matches the 3.4 that Pineda posted, though Kimbrel did it in only 77 innings. Voting:
Congratulations, winners all.
