Why Gary Sanchez has real shot to be named Rookie of the Year | New York Post

I would have voted for Fulmer.

The Baseball Writers Association of America’s “Awards Week” kicks off with the announcement of the Rookies of the Year. Whereas the National League honor figures to go unanimously to Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, the American League trophy is up for grabs between Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez and Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer, whom the Mets traded to Detroit for Yoenis Cespedes on July 31, 2015.

Indians outfielder Tyler Naquin is the third finalist for the AL award, as announced last week. Naquin, who put together an impressive .296/.372/.514 slash line in 116 games totaling 365 plate appearances, is as sure a bet to finish third as Gary Johnson was in last week’s Presidential election.

Sanchez, who didn’t stick with the Yankees for good until early August, recorded a remarkable .299/.376/.657 slash line in 53 games totaling 229 plate appearances. The 23-year-old finished with 20 home runs, and he set major league records for hitting his 11th, 18th and 19th homers in the fewest games ever. While Sanchez tied Texas’ Nomar Mazara for the most homers by an AL rookie in 2016, Mazara tallied his home run total in 568 plate appearances.
