Jeremy Hellickson beats out Ivan Nova for ROY award

By Delia E. 

The AL and NL Rookie Of the Year awards were just announced and once again, a Yankee went home empty handed. Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays & Craig Kimbel of the Atlanta Braves were the winners of the big awards, despite Ivan Nova having a 16-4 season.

Ivan Nova was listed on 16 of the 28 ROY ballots and was first place on one of them, second place for the other five and 10 third place votes. Here was the voting chart for the American League courtesy of bbwaa.com

Player, Team 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Jeremy Hellickson, Tampa Bay Rays 17 5 2 102
Mark Trumbo, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 5 11 5 63
Eric Hosmer, Kansas City Royals 4 4 6 38
Ivan Nova, New York Yankees 1 5 10 30
Michael Pineda, Seattle Mariners 3 2 11
Dustin Ackley, Seattle Mariners 1 1 6
Desmond Jennings, Tampa Bay Rays 1 1
Jordan Walden, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1 1

 

And here is the voting chart for the National League, once again courtesy of  bbwaa.com

Player, Team 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Craig Kimbrel, Atlanta Braves 32 160

  1. Clearly wins and losses are no longer a stat of importance, nor should they be. I still think there’s something wrong with the picture. I’m sure voters looked at Hellickson’s sub-3.00 ERA as a major influence on their vote. However, his FIP and xFIP were mediocre – 4.44 and 4.72. Also, considering his K/9 was a meager 5.57. So, by no means was Hellickson a “perfect” choice for AL-ROY.
