SBNation Awards: Rookies of the Year

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:

Num Name 1st 2nd 3rd Total
1 Michael Pineda 9 4 3 60
2 Jeremy Hellickson 4 5 4 39
3 Eric Hosmer 5 4 3 40
4 Dustin Ackley 1 5 3 23
5 Ivan Nova 5 5 20
6 Alexi Ogando 2 1 13
7 Mark Trumbo 1 3 8
8 Desmond Jennings 1 2 7
9 Brett Lawrie 1 1 6

 

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:

Num Name 1st 2nd 3rd Total
1 Craig Kimbrel 22 4 2 124
2 Danny Espinosa 4 6 8 46
3 Freddie Freeman 8 3 27
4 Vance Worley 1 5 3 23
5 Wilson Ramos 1 2 5 16
6 Brandon Beachy 1 4 7
7 Corey Luebke 1 3
8 Lucas Duda 1 3
9 Mark Melancon 1 1
10 Allen Craig 1 1
11 Kenley Jansen 1 1

 

Congratulations, winners all.
