Coming off a remarkable rookie campaign in Major League Baseball, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Norichika Aoki finished fifth in National League Rookie of the Year balloting on Monday. The award, as voted on by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, was won by Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.
