Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals and Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels have been voted Rookies of the Year for their breakout seasons following late-April call-ups from the minor leagues.
Harper got 16 of 32 first-place votes and 112 points from the NL panel. Arizona pitcher Wade Miley was second with 12 first-place votes and 105 points, followed by Cincinnati slugger Todd Frazier with three firsts and 45 points.
Trout received all 28 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America's AL panel and was the eighth unanimous AL pick and the first since Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria in 2008.
