Seattle Mariners center fielder Kyle Lewis is the unanimous winner of the AL Rookie of the Year award.

The 25-year-old Lewis was one of baseball’s breakout stars during the pandemic-shortened season, batting .262 with 11 homers and 28 RBIs in 58 games. 

He led big league rookies with 37 runs, 90 total bases and a .364 on-base percentage. 

Lewis also made a couple of memorable plays in center, robbing Oakland’s Ramón Laureano of a grand slam on Sept. 14. 

Lewis is the fourth Mariner to win the award.
