Could a Tiger get Rookie Of The Year honors this year? If so, which Tiger? Brennan Boesch or Austin Jackson? Those are two amazing prospects. Both came into this year as relative unknowns that would not be able to replace Curtis Granderson.
Boesch is amazing with a bat. He has almost 20 less games then Jason Heyward and is barely behind him in statistics, and Brennans’ fielding has been spot on as of late. He is my Tiger right now. Although it looks like Brandon Inge is 100% again. Boesch steps up to the plate to Eminem music, so he is my favorite.
The league has a lot of good rookies this year though.
The way that Strasburg has pitched so far and the hype surrounding him makes me think he will win on a landslide, but he is out there every 5th game while my man is out almost every game. That is my fight for Boesch.
Other candidates whose cards I am keeping an eye on:
Mike Stanton, Jason Heyward, Drew Storen, Starlin Castro, and Carlos Santana.
My R.O.T.Y. Brennan Boesch
