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).

How the hell do you pick ten starting pitchers between the first and second teams and not make any of them Triston McKenzie?

I was just wonderin' so looked it up. Cherry-picked a bit in that Robert is 22 while Sosa's age-22 season was a disaster so I'm using age 21 here

LR: 220/291/435, 97 OPS+
SS: 233/282/404, 92 OPS+

Robert with heaps more defensive/positional value so he easily wins the WAR but as hitters that's reasonably close. That Sosa season is 1990, well before sillyball began in 1993-94. As I said, Sosa stank at 22, bounced back to a bit better than this at 23 then broke out at 24 (still just a 112 OPS+) and had his first big power bump at 25.
