Red Sox: Andrew Benintendi among AL Rookie of the Year finalists
Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi is among the three finalists on the ballot for American League Rookie of the Year.
With the BBWAA announcing the lists of baseball’s top awards, let’s take a look at each candidate for the Rookie of the Year Award.
All three finalists for the Rookie of the Year Award had pretty good years for their teams. The three finalists that were named were New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, and Baltimore Orioles outfielder/first baseman Trey Mancini. The winner of this award will be announced next Monday night.
The 2017 Rookie of the Year Award, to no one’s surprise, is most likely going to Judge. The two other Rookie of the Year Award finalists, Benintendi and Mancini are worth mentioning, though.
Judge had a season that no one expected. Before the season started, it was predicted that Benintendi was going to win the Rookie of the Year Award, but after an unbelievable season, Judge will most likely win.
So, let’s take a look at each finalist and how their seasons went.
