NEW YORK (AP) – Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena and Cincinnati Reds second baseman Jonathan India were named rookies of the year by Baseball Digest and eBay.
Arozarena won the American League award Wednesday after hitting .274 with 20 homers and 69 RBIs for the AL East champs this season. He also had 20 stolen bases, 32 doubles, 94 runs and an .815 OPS.
India took the honor of the National League after hitting .269 with 21 home runs and 69 RBIs. He had 98 runs, 34 doubles, 12 steals and an .835 OPS.
This is the fiftieth consecutive season that Baseball Digest has awarded rookie of the year awards.
