Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger have been voted unanimously as baseball’s Rookies of the Year after their record-setting home run binges lifted the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers into the postseason.

Judge won American League honors, becoming the first Yankees player to receive the award since Derek Jeter in 1996. Bellinger took the National League award, giving the Dodgers a record 18th Rookie of the Year winner.

The voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America was announced Monday night on MLB Network. Judge led the AL with 52 home runs, a rookie record. Bellinger hit 39 homers for an NL rookie record.

Boston outfielder Andrew Benintendi finished second in the AL vote, and St. Louis infielder Paul DeJong was the NL runner-up.

Beltran retires

Carlos Beltran is retiring at age 40 after winning his first World Series title in his 20th major league season.

The outfielder made the announcement 12 days after the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 of the World Series.

Beltran is a nine-time All-Star who won the 1999 AL Rookie of the Year award and three Gold Gloves.

His production dropped dramatically this year. He hit .295 with 29 homers and 93 RBIs for the New York Yankees and Texas in 2016. He then batted .231 with 14 homers and 51 RBIs for Houston.

He finishes with a .279 average, 435 homers, 1,587 RBIs and 312 stolen bases. He also has played for Kansas City, the New York Mets, San Francisco and St. Louis.

Manager recovering

Ned Yost spent Monday afternoon in a lounge chair at his farm just outside Atlanta, the pain from a shattered pelvis so unbearable that the only movement the Royals manager could make was to reposition.

He was happy for the pain, though. It reminded him he was alive.

Just over a week ago, Yost was working in a hunting stand on his property when he reached to attach a safety line. The stand somehow collapsed and Yost fell about 20 feet to the ground, and the landing was so hard that he sustained a “massive fracture” to his pelvis and four broken ribs.

He also lost so much blood that surgeons later told him he nearly died.

“I didn’t understand the gravity of the situation until I was through it,” said the 62-year-old Yost, an avid outdoorsman. “I’m just glad I had my phone.”

Yost said he can’t put weight on either leg for at least two months. There are two rods, some plates and screws holding his pelvis together, and a good number of staples that are helping to keep the incision closed.

But he vowed that by spring training, “I should be pretty much full-go.”

Yost was checking his tree stands to prepare them for winter. He took care of the first stand without any problems.

He drove to a second tree stand and climbed up wearing his safety belt. The stand felt solid at first, but as he reached around the tree to clip in, “it was like a hang-man’s gallows.”

Braves hire new GM

The Atlanta Braves hired former Dodgers and Blue Jays executive Alex Anthopoulos as their general manager, giving the team a young but experienced leader to provide stability amid a crisis. Anthopoulos also was named executive vice president in control of baseball operations.

The 40-year-old Anthopoulos was introduced by team chairman Terry McGuirk, who also announced that John Hart is moving into a new role as a senior adviser as Anthopoulos takes over baseball operations from Hart.

Anthopoulos succeeds John Coppolella, who was forced to resign on Oct. 2 after an ongoing investigation by Major League Baseball disclosed rule violations committed by the Braves in the international player market..
