Florida outfielder Chris Coghlan won the award, although he was not on seven of the 32 ballots cast by two writers from each league city. Philadelphia pitcher J.A. Happ was the only player named on all ballots, and he placed second, totaling 94 points. Coghlan totaled 105 points.

Former Cubs infielder Casey McGehee, who batted .301 with 16 homers and 66 RBIs for the Milwaukee Brewers, also received a first-place vote, finishing fifth in the balloting with 18 points.

Wells, a converted catcher who went 12-10 in 27 starts for the Cubs, received one second-place vote. The right-hander's 12 wins and 165 1/3 innings were the most for a Cubs rookie since Kerry Wood won 13 and totaled 166 2/3 innings in 1998.
