AL Rookie of the Year Prediction 2022

Bobby Witt Jr., Kansas City Royals (+300) at Caesars

Witt Jr. was drafted second overall in the 2019 MLB Draft by the Royals. He’s got all the tools to be one of the best players in baseball and even had his swing compared to Mike Trout‘s after obliterating a home run during preseason action, making him a good choice for our MLB bet of the day.

It looks like Witt Jr. is going to get the chance to play every day at third base to start the season for Kansas City. Shortstop is his true position, but just having Witt’s bat and presence in the lineup on a daily basis should give the Royals a big boost offensively.

AL Rookie of the Year Contenders 2022

Spencer Torkelson, Detroit Tigers (+500) at Caesars

Like Witt Jr., it looks like Torkelson will get to play right away this season. Torkelson should win the first base job and immediately slot in as one of the Tigers’ better hitters.

While Detroit doesn’t have much offensive talent around him, Torkelson has the potential to crush 20+ homers this year and win the award, especially if the Tigers make gains in the AL Central.

Adley Rutschman, Baltimore Orioles (+800) at Caesars

If the Orioles want to sell tickets this year, Rutschman is going to have to be called up eventually. While he’s currently dealing with a triceps injury that will likely delay his debut, MLB’s top prospect according to Baseball America is a good bet to hit the ground running.

Rutschman appears ready for the bigs after playing well at both Double-A and Triple-A last year, batting a combined .285/.397/.502 with 23 home runs in 123 games. If he plays a full season and puts up anything close to those numbers, he has a chance to become the first catcher in either league to win Rookie of the Year since Buster Posey in 2010.

AL Rookie of the Year Sleepers 2022

Joe Ryan, Minnesota Twins (+3000) at Caesars

The Twins’ rotation isn’t particularly deep this season, especially after trading Jose Berrios to the Blue Jays last year.

That means Ryan will have a chance to establish himself as a legitimate major-league starter this season. He pitched well as a September call-up last year with a 3.43 FIP, a 0.79 WHIP, and a 30:5 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings across five starts.

After impressing during spring training as well, Ryan has the makings of a rotation mainstay for Minnesota and is a good value bet to win this award.

Jarren Duran, Boston Red Sox (+4000) at Caesars

As expected, Duran will begin the season in Triple-A for additional seasoning after struggling in his first taste of the majors last year. He had trouble adjusting to major-league pitching, batting just .215/.241/.336 with a 4:40 BB/K ratio in 33 games.

Duran excelled during spring training, however, so it shouldn’t be long before he’s back in the majors if he keeps it up at Triple-A. His combination of power and speed is tantalizing if he can improve his pitch recognition and plate discipline.

The Red Sox may need help in the outfield soon if Jackie Bradley Jr.‘s offensive rut continues, and Duran will likely be the first man called up.
