Texas reliever Neftali Feliz has been named the 2010 American League Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year, the first Ranger to win since Mike Hargrove,in 1974, 14 years before Feliz was born. Feliz and runner-up Austin Jackson, the Detroit OF, were the only players named on all 28 ballots. According to noted baseball humorist (and Batter's Box's own) Jamey Newberg, "Derek Jeter placed third. (Not really.)"

Giants catcher Buster Posey got the National League nod. Read the full story on ESPN.com.
