Default Cody Bellinger Wins N.L. Rookie Of The Year Award
After a brilliant, record-setting rookie season, Cody Bellinger now has the hardware to show for it. Not that there was ever much doubt.

The Dodgers' slugging first baseman took home the National League Rookie of the Year Award on Monday night, receiving all 30 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America. The Cardinals' Paul DeJong finished second, with Pittsburgh's Josh Bell coming in third.

"It's a huge honor," Bellinger said during MLB Network's unveiling of the award. "I have to give a lot of credit to Paul and Josh, too -- unbelievable players. To take this award home with me is really special."

Bellinger, who batted .267/.352/.581 with 39 homers, is the second consecutive Dodger to win the award, after Corey Seager did so last year. Bellinger is the third straight unanimous NL winner, after Kris Bryant received all 30 votes in 2015. It's the first time in the award's history that a league has seen three straight unanimous winners.

Bellinger is the latest in a long line of rookie stars for the Dodgers. The franchise has seen 18 players take home the honor, beginning with Jackie Robinson, who won the first edition in 1947. That's easily the most among all clubs.
