DODGER, TIGER TOP ROOKIES

Corey Seager won the NL rookie of the year award unanimously.

Michael Fulmer took the AL honor — and that vote wasn't close, either.

Seager and Fulmer were announced as the winners Monday night, when votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America were made public. Seager's victory was almost a foregone conclusion after he hit .308 with 26 home runs and 72 RBIs this year while playing shortstop for the Dodgers. Fulmer had to hold off a late challenge from Yankees C Gary Sanchez, who hit 20 home runs in only 53 games.

Fulmer's season-long contributions for Detroit won out. The right-hander went 11-7 with a 3.06 ERA in 26 starts.
