MLB Rookie Offensive & Pitching Leaders

The 2017 season has seen some of baseball’s best young ball players becoming instant stars overnight, case in point New York Yankees phenom Aaron Judge. The right fielder leads his other AL rookie counterparts in home runs, runs scored, hits, RBIs, walks, triples, second in batting average, and third in stolen bases. Amongst American League rookies, clearly Judge is a very strong candidate for Rookie of the Year.

In the National League, Los Angeles Dodgers Cody Bellinger has a strong hold on the NL Rookie of the Year award as he leads all NL rookies in runs, home runs, and RBIs.

With a whole second half of baseball just around the corner, it will be interesting to see if both Judge and Bellinger can keep this same pace, or will another young up and coming star take over.

On the mound, Colorado Rockies Antonio Senzatela is making a good case as he leads all NL rookie pitchers with nine wins.
