NEW YORK (AP) — San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey and Texas Rangers closer Neftali Feliz have been voted the Rookies of the Year.

Posey won the National League award in voting announced Monday by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Feliz won the American League honor.

Posey drew 20 first-place votes on the 32 ballots. He was called up from Triple-A in late May and hit .305 with 18 home runs and 67 RBIs for the eventual World Series champions.

Feliz set a rookie record with 40 saves in helping Texas reach the World Series for the first time. The rocket-armed righty was listed first on 20 of the 28 ballots.

Voting was done by two BBWAA members in each league city after the regular season.
