Starting off his career 8-for-10 at the plate is impressive enough as it is, but there’s more where that came from.
Kwan has reached base 15 times as of Tuesday afternoon and has yet to swing and miss at a pitch.
The young outfielder is already hitting for an impressive .692 batting average in just 13 at-bats.
Making his way onto the Guardians Opening Day roster out of spring training, Kwan began the season at +5000 odds to win the American League Rookie of the Year Award.
Now, just four games into his young career, Kwan sits at +600 and has the fourth-best odds to win the award.
Steven Kwan opened at +5000 to win AL Rookie of the Year.
Four games later he's +600 and has the 4th-best odds to win 🔥

Kwan For ROTY?
Of course, he’s going to have stiff competition from Bobby Witt Jr. and Spencer Torkelson, both of whom are in the same division as Kwan, but the American League Central division is going to be fun to watch with these three studs making noise and competing for the AL Rookie of the Year Award.
This year’s burgeoning class of young talent is one of the most exciting rookie classes we have seen in recent years.
Add Kwan to the list of exciting young rookies ready to make an impact and take the baseball world by storm.
Kwan has also posted a 1.789 OPS.
The 24-year-old speedster just cannot be stopped.
He’s showing no signs of stopping anytime soon and is as hot as anybody in baseball today.
It’s always fun to see someone who wasn’t expected to make an impact make their way onto the Opening Day roster and immediately turn into a Rookie of the Year candidate.
But Kwan is prepared to turn the game on its ear.
