Who Will Be The 2020 American League Rookie Of The Year?

List RulesVote up for who you think will win the American League Rookie of the Year award in 2020.

The 2020 American League Rookie of the Year race could come from anywhere. With rebuilding teams like the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles employing a number of rookies, a young team could feature a new breakout star. But top World Series contenders often add rookies from their stacked farm systems who contribute right away at the major league level.

Of the past five AL Rookie of the Year winners, two have come from the controversial but World Series-winning Houston Astros (Carlos Correa and 2019 AL ROY Yordan Alavarez), while Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees won the award in 2017 and has been a perennial MVP candidate in the years since, so the award has some serious predictive power.

So check out the list of AL rookie candidates below and make your predictions for the young stars who will surprise everyone in 2020 and make a run at the AL Rookie of the Year award.
