Miguel Andujar Voted Most Outstanding Rookie By Players
The New York Yankees' rookie third Baseman Miguel Andujar may have been snubbed by the writers but not by his fellow players. Andujar has been named the Most Outstanding Rookie by the Players and the Yankees are not only celebrating but also taking a subtle jab at the reigning Rookie of the Year Shohei Ohtani, who won the writers vote.
The writers were taken by the fact that Ohtani both pitched and hit for power so they didn't award Andujar an award many thought he rightfully deserved. We can now add Andujar's "Peers" to the list that thought he was the best American League Rookie last season. The 23 year old Andujar hit 47 doubles, 27 Home Runs and 92 RBIs on his way to a .297 average. I for one feel as though he was a bigger part of a better team and very deserving of the award. Thankfully the players agree.
