There have been a lot of rookies in the MLB this year that have performed wonders for their respective teams. Only two players can win Rookie of the Year each season. One player from the National League and one person from the American League wins the award. The rookies of this year have been phenomenal and they are arguably the best rookies we have seen in a long time.

In the National League, there are two rookies who have a really good chance of winning the award; Ronald Acuña Jr. of the Atlanta Braves and Juan Soto of the Washington Nationals. Acuña carries a .289 batting average, .364 on base percentage, .561 slugging average, and has 118 hits, 26 home runs, and 58 runs batted in. Soto has a .295 batting average, .406 on base percentage, .516 slugging percentage, 117 hits, 21 home runs, and 66 runs batted in.

In the American League, there are three rookies that have a good chance of receiving the award; Miguel Andújar and Gleyber Torres of the New York Yankees, and Shohei Ohtani of the Anaheim Angels. Andújar has a .298 batting average, .330 on base percentage, .521 slugging average, 163 hits, 25 home runs, and 85 runs batted in. Torres has a .276 batting average, .345 on base percentage, .484 slugging percentage, 114 hits, 23 home runs, and 73 runs batted in. The two-way Japanese import, Ohtani, has a .280 batting average, .361 on base percentage, .564 slugging percentage, 21 home runs, and 56 runs batted in. On the pitching side, he has four wins, two losses, and a 3.31 earned run average.

It has been an exciting season for these rookies and the rookies of the year will be decided very soon. It should be very interesting to see who wins the award with all of the talented rookies on display this season.
