[MLS AWARDS] Seattle Sounders midfielder Mauro Rosales was the runaway winner of the 2011 MLS Newcomer of the Year award.

The award honors the player with previous professional experience who makes the biggest impact in his first season in Major League Soccer.
 
The 30-year-old Argentina joined Seattle in 2011 and emerged as one of the top playmakers in MLS, finishing the regular season with five goals and 13 assists in 26 games and helping Seattle mount the league’s most potent attack (56 goals). He missed the playoffs with a knee injury.
 
Rosales has made 10 appearances for Argentina’s national team and won a gold medal with Argentina at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

He started his club career at Newell’s Old Boys in Argentina, before moving to Ajax in the Netherlands for three years, and then returning to Argentina to play for River Plate.

1. Mauro Rosales (SEA) 85.15
2. Luke Rodgers (NY) 34.63
3. Eric Hassli (VAN) 31.45
4. Faryd Mondragon (PHI) 26.25
5. Omar Bravo (SKC) 22.02

2010: Alvaro Saborio, Real Salt Lake
