As the top newcomers to the MLB make their way through the second half of their debut seasons, it's time to start making your 2018 NL Rookie of the Year predictions. Every season, a large group of young stars make their way from the minor leagues to the majors, but only some of them have what it takes to jump right in with the veterans and make a name for themselves. This season, the National League has seen some serious talent enter the big leagues, from star hitters to leaders on the mound. Of all the top new players this season, though, who will win NL Rookie of the Year for 2018?

In the National League, players like Brian Anderson of the Marlins, Dodgers' ace Walker Buehler, and Braves' phenom Ronald Acuña Jr. (among others) have really been making a splash. Could these guys be considered some of the best current MLB players? Could the Phillies' Jorge Alfaro join the ranks of top MLB catchers after his first season? Regardless, all the players listed below have the potential to become the 2018 NL Rookie of the Year, but who will take home the honors?
