Los Angeles Dodgers' Cody Bellinger named NL Rookie of the Year

Coming off a year in which he struck out in almost half his plate appearances, Judge beat out Aaron Hicks to claim the Yankees right field job in spring training and went on to hit.284 with a rookie-record 52 home runs and 114 RBI. Voting was done by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America and was completed before the start of the postseason. The 22-year-old, who split time between first base and the outfield, batted.271 with 97 RBIs for the National League champions.

Bellinger becomes the second consecutive Dodger (18th overall) to win Rookie of the Year after teammate Corey Seager took home the honor last year.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge and Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger were named Major League Baseball's 2017 rookies of the year on Monday.

Judge, who stands at 6-foot-7, hit an MLB rookie record 52 home runs during the 2017 season and helped lead the Yankees to an American League Championship Series berth.

The players remained in China after not being allowed to leave the country, awaiting their ruling from the Chinese court system. Chinese authorities reportedly have surveillance video, and ESPN reported that the trio could be detained for two weeks.

And like with Judge and his Yankees, Bellinger figures to play a crucial for the Dodgers for years to come.

The two Rookie of the Year races, however, provided absolutely zero drama. But they were 9-11 when they promoted Bellinger on April 25 - as an outfielder, following injuries to Andre Ethier and Joc Pederson.

Bellinger set the big leagues on fire after joining the Dodgers, leading LA to a.669 winning percentage.

His fantastic first half, culminating in his Home Run Derby victory at Marlins Park, turned him into a transcendent figure, someone baseball commissioner Rob Manfred projected as a potential face of the game. He led the American League in homers, runs scored (128) and walks (127) while batting.284 for a Yankees team that fell one win short of the World Series.
