The BBBWARAOAAE congratulates Jose Abreu and Jacob deGrom

Jose Abreu Rookie of the Year

After taking home the BBWAA top rookie awards yesterday, Jose Abreu and Jacob deGrom can continue their celebrations today as both are winners of the Base Ball Blog Writers and Readers Association of America and Elsewhere Rookie of the Year Award!

Jacob  deGrom Rookie of the Year

Abreu was the clear winner in the American League, taking all but one first-place vote; deGrom faced stiff competition from the Reds’ speedy Billy Hamilton, but edged him out 11-7 in first place votes, and winning by the slim margin of seven points. Only one other National Leaguer, David Peralta, received a first-place vote.

BBBWARAOAAE voters recognized one AL and four NL rookies that were overlooked by the BBWAA; the BBWAA listed two AL and one NL first-year players that were ignored by BBBWARAOAAE voters.
