Fielder hit .305 with 23 homers and 98 RBIs for Texas, which won the AL West for the first time since 2011. He played in 42 games in 2014, when his season ended in mid-May because of a herniated neck disk that needed surgery.

Major League Baseball announced the winners Thursday. The awards, which began in 2005, are voted on by the 30 team beat writers from MLB.com.
