Player Props & Futures

National League Rookie of the Year

  • Ke’Bryan Hayes (+350) (Unibet)

Hayes is considered one of the best prospects in baseball, ranking ninth on’s Top 100 prospects list coming into this season. This is a 24-year old player with elite defense and an improving hit tool as well as plus speed. Hayes tore it up in limited action last year, slashing .376/.442/.682 with five home runs in 95 plate appearances. He has looked good in Spring Training so far as well.

The risk here is that Hayes has a limited track record as a hitter, with a career-high of 10 home runs in 480 plate appearances at Triple-A in 2019. He could also see pitchers pitch around him given the lack of protection in the Pirates’ lineup. Having said that, Hayes has an elite defense, so if his bat can continue developing, you’re looking at an elite player and heavy favorite for NL Rookie of the Year.
