Why Rodriguez Leads AL Rookie Of The Year Odds 

Julio Rodriguez is having himself a season. Leading all American League rookies in homers, stolen bases and OPS, the Seattle star brings a diverse game to the Mariners, meeting the high expectations for a top prospect.

He’s got the statistical resume to win the AL Rookie of the Year award, and has the buzz too. Nearly winning the MLB Home Run Derby, Rodriguez officially put himself on the map as the breakout star of 2022. The guys below him on this list are having solid seasons, but he is better in almost every way.

Value Picks: Bobby Witt Jr. (+700) 

Witt finds himself fourth among qualified AL rookies in OPS (.760) and behind JRod in homers and stolen bases. But the reason he’s good value at this +700 line is his recent hot streak.

The Royals shortstop started out his rookie campaign with a .558 OPS in April, notching no homers and driving in just five runs. In the three months since, he’s posted at least an .800 OPS in every month and has 14 homers in his last 75 games. If Witt keeps up this pace, or maybe progresses a bit more down the stretch, he has a chance to catch Rodriguez in a lot of these offensive categories.

Why Strider Leads NL Rookie Of The Year Odds

It took a few weeks for Spencer Strider to work his way into the Braves rotation, but now he’s there to stay. The Atlanta rookie has a 3.03 ERA in 21 appearances (10 starts), striking out 114 batters in 74.1 innings with just 30 free passes allowed. He’s quickly solidified himself as the best rookie arm in baseball and maybe one of the most dynamic pitchers in the entire National League.

Value Pick: Michael Harris (+200)

At +200, Harris might not be the best value in the world, but this looks to me like a real two-horse race between these two Braves studs.

Harris’ rate stats are right there with Julio Rodriguez’s as the best in baseball among rookies so far. The only reason he isn’t leading these NL Rookie of the Year odds is because he’s only played 50 games so far. If he can keep up his .800 OPS pace and continue stealing bases, hitting homers and playing amazing defense in the outfield, there’s no reason he can’t pass his teammate for NL ROTY.

How To Read MLB Rookie Of The Year Odds

The above charts feature the odds for each top rookie in the American League and National League. At your sportsbook of choice, like Bovada, the betting lines for the Rookie of the Year odds could look something like this:

Spencer Torkelson +150
Bobby Witt Jr. +160
Adley Rutschman +190

This means that Torkelson is the ROTY favorite since he has the lowest odds and the highest chance of winning the prop, according to oddsmakers. If you were to bet $100 on the Tigers slugger and he won, you would get a payout of $250 – your original $100 is returned along with your winnings of $150.
