MLB rookie status for 2020 amended

The original rule called for players to be considered rookies so long as they had not (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of the 26-player limit (excluding time on the injured list).

With the season shortened and roster sizes of 28 for the vast majority of 2020, the rule has been amended as follows:

1. Because there was no “September callup” period this year, days of service on the Major League roster will include September 2020. So any player who accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the 2020 season or during previous seasons prior to Sept. 1 will no longer be considered a rookie…

2. Both Rookies of the Year for 2020, as selected by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, will be ineligible to repeat as winners in 2021, even if they otherwise qualify for consideration.

MLB Pipeline’s 2020 All-Rookie Team

OF: Kyle Lewis, Mariners
.272/.376/.461, 54 G, 11 HR, 36 R, 28 RBIs

While he’s come back down to Earth a bit after a scorching start, Lewis is still very much at the forefront of AL Rookie of the Year talk as he’s tied among all rookies with 11 homers and tops all of them with 88 total bases, all while playing a solid center field.

OF: Luis Robert, White Sox
.225/.297/.444, 52 G, 11 HR, 30 R, 30 RBIs

The tools have been on display all year – he’s swiped eight bases and played an outstanding defensive center field – while tying with Lewis for the rookie home run lead, leading AL rookies in XBH (19) and trailing only Lewis among all rookies in total bases (83).
