Astros shortstop Carlos Correa named American League Rookie of the Year

The baseball offseason has been very good to the Houston Astros and it continued on Monday with Carlos Correa winning the AL rookie of the year award from the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Correa hit 22 home runs and drove in 68 runs, after making his major league debut on June 8.

He is the second Astros player to win the rookie of the year. Jeff Bagwell won the National League rookie of the year award in 1991.

Correa was the youngest position player in the Majors this season, hitting .279 (108x387) with 22 doubles, 14 stolen bases and an .857 OPS in his 99 games in 2015.

Among AL rookies, Correa ranked first in home runs, slugging (.512) and OPS, while ranking second in RBI and on-base percentage (.345), and third in batting average (min. 400 PA).

With 22 home runs this season, Correa set both the franchise rookie record for home runs and the franchise record for home runs by a shortstop.
