Corey Seager rolls to unanimous selection as NL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year

Corey Seager of the Los Angeles Dodgers became the 21st player overall and the 12th in the NL to win the award by a unanimous vote. It marked the second consecutive year that the NL winner was unanimous, following Kris Bryant. It is the third time there have been consecutive unanimous winners. The others were Orlando Cepeda in 1958 and Willie McCovey in 1959 and Mike Piazza in 1993 and Raul Mondesi in 1994.

Seager is the fourth shortstop to win the award in the NL. The others were Alvin Dark in 1948, Rafael Furcal in 2000 and Hanley Ramirez in 2006. There have been 14 shortstop winners in the American League, most recently Carlos Correa in 2015.

This election marked the 17th time a Dodgers player has been honored, the most in the history of the award dating to 1947 and the first time for a shortstop. The Dodgers have had winners at every position except third base: starring pitchers Don Newcombe, Rick Sutcliffe, Fernando Valenzuela and Hideo Nomo; relief pitchers Joe Black and Steve Howe; catcher Mike Piazza; first basemen Jackie Robinson and Eric Karros; second basemen Junior Gilliam, Jim Lefebvre, Ted Sizemore and Steve Sax and outfielders Frank Howard, Raul Mondesi and Todd Hollandsworth.

Seager was the only player named on all ballots.

Ballots from two writers in each league city prior to postseason play are tabulated on a system that rewards five points for first place, three points for second place and one point for third place.
