Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was named to the Sporting News’ American League All-Star team on Wednesday. In the dozen years since that ceased, the BBWAA and Sporting News picks for AL Rookie of the Year converged 10 instances — the lone exceptions had been in 2010, when the Sporting News picked Detroit’s Jackson (BBWAA: Neftali Feliz, Texas) and in 2011, when the Sporting News picked the Angels’ Mark Trumbo (BBWAA: Jeremy Hellickson, Tampa Bay).
