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

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

The 2020 National League Rookie of the Year race could come from anywhere. With rebuilding teams like the San Diego Padres and Cincinnati Reds 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 six NL Rookie of the Year winners, two have come from the always-competetive Los Angeles Dodgers (Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger), while another two came from the New York Mets (Jacob deGrom and 2019 ROY Pete Alonso). Bellinger went on to win an MVP award in 2019, while deGrom has won two Cy Young awards since being named the best Rookie in the National League, so the award has some serious predictive power.

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