After a 16-win season that pushed him into the No. 2 spot in the Yankees postseason rotation, Ivan Nova has finished fourth in the American League Rookie of the Year voting. Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays won the award with 17 of 28 votes.

Nova received one first-place vote, five second-place votes and 10 third-place votes. With a large field of candidates, Nova was mentioned on more than half of the ballots.

First basemen Mark Trumbo and Eric Hosmer finished second and third. Nova finished ahead of Michael Pineda, an early favorite for the award.

Craig Kimbrel won in the National League. He was a unanimous selection.
