On Monday we listed the stats of the rookies tearing it up on the offensive side of the ball and vying for the opportunity to be crowned the Rookie of the Year for their respective leagues. There are a few strong candidates that are more than likely walking away with the award like Corey Seager of the Los Angeles Dodgers or even Nomar Mazara of the Texas Rangers.

But if we are looking at possible pitchers to steal away the award, in the National League Kenta Maeda of the Dodgers and in the American League Michael Fulmer of the Detroit Tigers, look like the favorites off the mound.
