According to oddsmakers from online sports book, Yankees’ starter Masahiro Tanaka is a 2/5 favorite to win the AL Rookie of the Year. White Sox’ slugger Jose Abreu has the next-best odds at 3/1 while George Springer of the Astros is 7/1 and Xander Bogaerts is 7/1. Yangervis Solarte of the Yankees, meanwhile, is 18/1 to win the AL Rookie of the Year and the current long shot is Tigers’ third baseman Nick Castellanos is 25/1.

In the National League, recently called up Gregory Polanco of the Pirates is a 5/7 favorite to win the Rookie of the Year award while Arizona’s Chris Owings has the next-best odds in the league at 2/1. Reds centerfielder Billy Hamilton is also 3/1 while Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras is a 20/1 long shot. Taveras was recently sent back to the minors when Matt Adams came off the DL, so his long odds are understandable.

Tanaka currently has the best ERA in the American League at 2.02 has been outstanding for the Yankees, who signed him as an international free agent this offseason. Abreu, meanwhile, has the third-most home runs in baseball despite missing a few weeks due to injury. He too was an international signing out of Cuba.

Polanco has raked since being called up from the minors. He’s currently on a six-game winning streak to start his career and is hitting .387 after going 2-for-5 with a run scored on Sunday versus the Marlins. He’s given Pittsburgh a punch in the arm offensively.
