MLB: Ranking The Potential AL Rookie Of The Year Candidates

3. Tyler Naquin

Current 2016 stats: .330, 12 HR, 32 RBI, .390 OBP, .634 SLG (68 GP)

Projected: .330, 20 HR, 52 RBI, .390 OBP, .634 SLG (111 GP)

The 25-year-old rookie has been outstanding in the time he has been on the field for the first-place Indians this year. In fact, by translating his numbers over 162 games, you have a guy who would jack 29 homers and drive in 76 runs.

Most importantly, he hits for average. Additionally, for a first year player, his 1.024 OPS is absolutely off the charts. Currently, Naquin is the greatest dark horse in this race.
