Reds second baseman Jonathan India received 29 of 30 first-place votes to win the National League Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Award.

India and runner-up Trevor Rogers were the only players named on every ballot.

This is the eighth time a Reds player has been honored. The others were Scott Williamson (1999), Chris Sabo (1988), Pat Zachry (1976), Johnny Bench (1968), Tommy Helms (1966), Pete Rose (1963) and Frank Robinson (1956).

India is the seventh second baseman to win the National League award, joining Rose, Steve Sax (1982), Ted Sizemore (1969), Jim Lefebvre (1965), Ken Hubbs (1962) and Junior Gilliam (1953). Jackie Robinson, for whom the award has been named since 1987, was a first baseman when he won the first award, in 1947. He moved to second base the next season. There have been four American League winners who played second base.

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, one point for third place.
