MLB AL Rookie of the Year Award Odds: Bobby Witt Jr. Favored To Take Home the Award

It seems like more and more rookies will get the opportunity to start the regular season in the major leagues. That bodes well for rookies after last year's debacle with Wander Franco not winning the award because his service time was manipulated. With so much movement in the MLB, there are many teams in the AL that will benefit from starting rookies on Opening Day.

Here's a breakdown of the AL Rookie of the Year Award odds.

MLB American League Rookie of the Year Odds Breakdown

  • Bobby Witt Jr. (Royals) +280
  • Spencer Torkelson (Tigers) +500
  • Julio Rodriguez (Mariners) +550
  • Adley Rutschman (Orioles) +700
  • Riley Greene (Tigers) +1100
  • Jeremy Pena (Astros) +1200
  • Shane Baz (Rays) +1600
  • Joe Ryan (Twins) +2500
  • Steven Kwan (Guardians) +4000
  • Reid Detmers (Angels) +4000

Favorite: Bobby Witt Jr. +280 (Bet $100 to Win $280)

Bobby Witt Jr. is likely going to start opening day with the Kansas City Royals at third base. Witt Jr. is normally a shortstop but the only way to get him on the field at this time is to put him at third base. The former second overall pick has looked fantastic in Spring Training and has been compared to Mike Trout in terms of his swing. He's projected to have nearly 20 home runs this season and could end up swiping plenty of bases as well. Witt Jr. is also projected to be batting second, behind Witt Merrifield and in front of Salvador Perez. That's a lot of protection. He's going to do some big things.

Long Shot: Joe Ryan +2500 (Bet $100 to Win $2500)

Joe Ryan will get the number four slot in the Minnesota Twins starting rotation. Ryan debuted last season and went 2-1 with a 4.05 ERA. However, he had a WHIP of .79 and has looked extremely good in Spring Training. Ultimately, Ryan struck out 30 batters in 26.2 innings with the Twins last year and had just five walks. Ryan did give up four home runs in five starts but overall, batters hit just .168 against him and had an OBP of .210. While the Twins added Sonny Gray and Dylan Bundy, Ryan figures to be the main piece to the puzzle on the pitching side of things. He's got ace stuff and could be the reason why the Twins make the playoffs this season.
