The 25-year-old Mancini received five second-place votes and 16 third-place votes for a total of 31 points. Benintendi received 23 second-place votes and six third-place votes for 75 points. Judge was the runaway winner and the only player named on all 30 ballots, becoming the 10th player to unanimously win the AL Rookie of the Year Award with 150 points.

VOTE NOW: Esurance MLB Awards’ Best Rookie

Mancini likely would have been a serious contender for the award in any other year, but Judge’s numbers were simply too impressive to compete with. Judge, who became the ninth Yankee to win the honor, is a finalist for the AL MVP and is coming off a season in which he hit .284 with a Major League-leading 52 home runs and 114 RBIs. Judge also finished with a Major League-leading 128 runs, 127 walks and a 1.049 OPS for one of the best rookie seasons ever.

All-time Rookie of the Year winners

Baltimore’s left fielder/first baseman still had some impressive achievements this season. Mancini led all rookies in hits (159), and was second in batting average (.293), third in slugging (.488), fifth in RBIs (78) and seventh in home runs (21). He also led the freshman crop with 47 multi-hit games and had a 17-game hitting streak from Sept. 11-29, the longest by any rookie in 2017 and the longest by an O’s rookie in club history.

Must C: Mancini's clutch homers

All of this from a player who wasn’t guaranteed a spot in the big leagues when he reported to Spring Training. He won a platoon job in left following an impressive camp, eventually won the full-time job and went on to appear in all but 15 of Baltimore’s games this season. He added 26 doubles, four triples and 21 homers, third-most by a rookie in franchise history behind only Cal Ripken Jr. and Eddie Murray.

Mancini credits Joseph, skipper

Mancini became the first Orioles player to finish top three in voting for the AL Rookie of the Year Award since right-hander Daniel Cabrera in 2004. A Baltimore player has not taken home the top honor since closer Gregg Olson in 1989.
