Miguel Cabrera was named the American League's MVP on Thursday, beating rookie phenom Mike Trout by a much wider margin than most anticipated.
Cabrera, baseball's first Triple Crown winner since 1967, received 22 out of 28 possible first-place votes for the award. The Detroit Tigers slugger batted .330 with 44 home runs and 139 RBIs.
Trout received the other six first-place votes three days after being named the AL Rookie of the Year.
