Who Made the 2011 Topps All-Star Rookie Team?

The 2011 Topps All-Star Rookie Team has been announced with few surprises. Leading the way are both Rookie of the Year winners, Craig Kimbrel of the Atlanta Braves and Tampa's Jeremy Hellickson. The Toronto Blue Jays were the only team to have two players make the list: Brett Lawrie and J.P. Arencibia.

Limited to one player per position, the 2011 Topps Major League Rookie All-Star Team had a couple of notable names left off. The most debatable is likely Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa making the cut over Dustin Ackley of the Mariners. Also missing is NL ROY runner-up Freddie Freeman. However, Mark Trumbo's power numbers are first base are hard to deny.

Here's the complete 2011 Topps All-Star Rookie Roster:

1B: Mark Trumbo, Angels
2B: Danny Espinosa, Nationals
SS: Dee Gordon, Dodgers
3B: Brett Lawrie, Blue Jays
OF: Desmond Jennings, Rays
OF: Josh Reddick, Red Sox
OF: Ben Revere, Twins
C: J.P. Arencibia, Blue Jays
SP: Jeremy Hellickson, Rays
RP: Craig Kimbrel, Braves

The Topps All-Star Rookie Team has been around since 1959. Past winners have included Cal Ripken, Carlton Fisk, Ozzie Smith, Willie McCovey, Tom Seaver and Ryne Sandberg. As in most previous years, winners will have the iconic rookie cup trophy on the front of their Topps base card.

2012 Topps Series 1 Baseball is slated for release in February.
