Will Trout reel it in?
The Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year awards will be announced for both leagues, though the American League has fairly little drama to it. Angels centerfielder Mike Trout (pictured) is expected to win in a landslide after a jaw-dropping first season.
The National League is a little more crowded with the likes of Nationals centerfielder Bryce Harper, Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario and Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo competing.
