Shohei Ohtani Wins AL Rookie Of The Year

Shoehei Ohtani has won AL Rookie of the Year getting 25 of the 30 first-place votes beating out Yankees Miguel Andujar. 

Ohtani impressed on both sides of the ball hitting 22 home runs and 10 stolen bases while also posting a 3.31 ERA in 10 starts for the Angels. The 24-year-old unfortunately underwent Tommy John surgery after the season and will likely be limited to DH duties in 2019. 

Ohtani's performance this season was nothing short of historic. He is the first player in MLB history to hit 20 home runs and strike out 50 batters in the same season which is a big reason why he got most of the first place votes. 

One big supporter of Ohtani all season was his fellow teammate Mike Trout and he reacted to him winning the AL Rookie of the Year.

There's no doubt the best is yet to come!" 

Ohtani is currently recovering from Tommy John Surgery he opted to get after the season.
