Rosario put up big offensive numbers during the 2012 season. He slugged 28 home runs to go along with 107 hits and 71 RBIs during his first full season with the big-league club. He had received 16 games worth of time near the end of the 2011 season before being called up full-time for 2012.
Rosario received one first-place vote for the award; according to Renck, that voter was the representative for ESPN Deportes. Jordan Pacheco received a third-place vote, one of three players to get only a single vote in the competition.
