NEW YORK (AP) -- Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels was a unanimous winner of the AL Rookie of the Year after a season that put him in contention for the MVP award, too.

The 21-year-old center fielder hit .326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs following his call-up from the minor leagues in late April.

Trout received all 28 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America and was the eighth unanimous AL pick and the first since Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria in 2008.

The NL Rookie of the Year was to be announced later Monday night.
