Astros’ Alvarez wins Rookie of the Year in unanimous fashion

Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez won the American League Rookie of the Year award in unanimous fashion on Monday.

Alvarez received all 30 first-place votes and 150 points to easily outdistance the runner up, pitcher John Means (53) of the Baltimore Orioles, and third-place infielder Brandon Lowe (27) of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Alvarez fit in well with the Astros’ powerful lineup by contributing 27 homers and 78 RBIs in 87 games. He batted .313 and slugged .655.

“He wants to appreciate all the help that everyone has taught him during the season, especially his teammates and the fans who follow him,” Alvarez said through a translator on the MLB Network.

The left-handed Means went 12-11 with a 3.60 ERA in 31 appearances (27 starts). The 26-year-old All-Star had a solid 1.14 WHIP and struck out 121 in 155 innings.

Lowe, 25, batted .270 but was limited to 82 games due to injuries. The All-Star smacked 17 homers and drove in 51 runs.
