Ronald Acuna wins NL Rookie of the Year

Braves’ star outfielder Ronald Acuna has been named the 2018 National League rookie of the year, the league announced Monday.

He topped fellow outfielder Juan Soto of the Nationals 114-89. Acuna garnered 27 first-place votes while Soto had two. Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler was the third finalist.

The Braves can now claim eight rookie of the year winners. Acuna is the first since reliever Craig Kimbrel in 2011. Rafael Furcal (2000) and David Justice (1990) were other semi-recent Braves to achieve such.

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani Wins AL Rookie Of The Year Award

Shohei Ohtani didn’t show anything during spring training. And when he finally got it going for the Los Angeles Angels during the regular-season, the two-way sensation short-circuited, suffering a Grade 3 tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Despite it all, Ohtani became the first player since Babe Ruth in 1919 to pitch at least 50 innings and hit 15 home runs in the same season.

For that alone, Ohtani was the well-deserved runaway winner of the Rookie of the Year Award in the American League, now named after the legendary Jackie Robinson.
