Bryant, the Chicago Cubs third baseman with seemingly limitless power, cruised to a unanimous victory as the Baseball Writers’ Association of America National League Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year , while Correa, the ultra-athletic, do-everything shortstop for the Houston Astros, was revealed as American League Rookie of the Year, according to the ballots that were revealed on MLB Network on Monday night.

Both honors were representative of the recent trend of Major League greatness arriving at an early age, but neither was anything close to a surprise.

Bryant, 23, became the 20th player overall and 11th in the NL to win the award by a unanimous vote. He was the only player named on all 30 ballots. Giants third baseman finished second and Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang was third.

Correa had 17 first-place votes, finishing with 124 points to beat out Indians shortstop (109 points) and Twins DH/3B (20 points).
