Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout was a unanimous selection as the American League Rookie of the Year award, which was announced Monday.
In the vote by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, Trout easily beat out two foreign-born players -- Rangers starter Yu Darvish and A's outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.
Trout is also a contender for the AL MVP award, which will be announced on Thursday.
Trout, who turned 21 in August, was called up three weeks into the season, and he finished second in the AL in batting average (.326), first in steals (49) and runs (129), third in on-base percentage (.399) and third in slugging (.564).
He also had 30 homers and 83 RBIs.
