JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — New York Mets 1B Ike Davis finished 7th in voting for the N.L. Rookie of the Year award, the Baseball Writers’ Association of American reported today (11/15/2010).

Despite finishing the 2010 season among the top N.L. rookies in several offensive categories, the 23-year-old received only two votes for Rookie of the Year, both for 3rd place. San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey won the award with 129 points. (See vote totals below.)

After being called-up from AAA in late April, Davis hit .264 and ranked 2nd among N.L. rookies in runs scored (73), 3rd in RBIs (71), and 3rd in HRs (19/tie).  He also starred in the field, leading all N.L. First Basemen in UZR (Ultimate Zone Rating), which estimates how many more (or fewer) runs a fielder prevented than he allowed.

JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Minnesota Twins 3B <a href=”../players/danny-valencia/” target=”_blank”>Danny Valencia</a> finished 3rd in voting for the A.L. Rookie of the Year award, the Baseball Writers’ Association of American <a href=”http://bbwaa.com/2010/11/2010-rookies/” target=”_blank”>reported</a> today (11/15/2010).

Valencia, a 26-year-old rookie who hit .311 after being called-up from AAA in early June, received one 2nd-place vote and nine 3rd-place votes to finish a distant 3rd behind Texas Rangers RP Neftali Perez and Detroit Tigers C Austin Jackson. (See vote totals below.)

It was the strongest Rookie of the Year performance by a Jewish player since Milwaukee Brewers LF Ryan Braun <a href=”http://bbwaa.com/2009/02/07-nl-rookie/” target=”_blank”>won the N.L. award in 2007</a>.

Valencia finished the 2010 season with 7 HRs, 18 doubles, 1 triple, 2 stolen bases, and 40 RBIs in 299 at-bats. In early September, Jewish Baseball News <a href=”http://www.jewishbaseballnews.com/analysis-danny-valencia-a-top-contender-for-rookie-of-the-year/” target=”_blank”>called him a top-5 contender for the Rookie award</a>.
