Several rookies are prepared to make their mark this MLB season, especially in the American League.
During the lockout, one of the major sticking points for the players’ side of negotiations was the goal to try and get teams to cut down on service-time manipulation.
It appears that several teams have chosen to do just that, including their top prospects on their Opening Day rosters.
One MLB insider tweeted a preview of what figures to be one of the most stacked rookie classes of all time, featuring names such as Spencer Torkelson, Julio Rodriguez, Bobby Witt Jr, Shane Baz, Adley Rutschman, and Riley Greene.
The AL Rookie of the Year field will include Julio Rodriguez, Bobby Witt Jr., Spencer Torkelson, Adley Rutschman, Shane Baz, eventually Riley Greene, among others.
The amount of young talent in this sport is mesmerizing.
