This week: The frontrunner in the AL Rookie of the Year race, Julio Rodriguez, continues to hit rockets, picking up his 22nd and 23rd home runs this week.

Next week: Rodriguez will look to show his power as the Seattle Mariners welcome in two playoff-bound teams – the Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres.

Adley Rutschman – Orioles (+700)

This week: Adley Rutschman has been a double-hitting machine, collecting his 29th on Wednesday, which ties him with Eddie Murray for the second most by a rookie in O’s history.

Bobby Witt Jr – Royals (+6600)

Steven Kwan – Guardians (+8000)

George Kirby – Mariners  (+8000)

This week: Congratulations are due for George Kirby after it was announced he received AL Rookie of the Month honors for August. He has earned it, placing him back into the AL Rookie of the Year odds rankings.
