Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis is the 12th player to win the AL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year award by a unanimous vote and the first for the Mariners.

The other unanimous choices: Carlton Fisk, Mark McGwire, Sandy Alomar Jr., Tim Salmon, Derek Jeter, Nomar Garciaparra, Evan Longoria, Mike Trout, Jose Abreu, Aaron Judge and Yordan Alvarez. There have been 13 unanimous winners in the National League.

This marks the fourth time a Seattle player has been honored. The others were Alvin Davis in 1984, Kazuhiro Sasaki in 2000 and Ichiro Suzuki in 2001.

Lewis, who was the only player named on every ballot, is the seventh center fielder to win the AL award, joining Mike Trout, Carlos Beltran, Fred Lynn, Tommie Agee, Bob Allison and Albie Pearson. There have been eight center fielders who won in the NL.

Ballots, submitted prior to postseason play, were cast by two writers representing each league city. They are tabulated on a system that awards five points for first place, three points for second place and one point for third place.
