Rookie of the Year

Luis Robert is a freak of nature in many ways. He is so good at baseball and there really isn’t anything he can’t do. Not many prospects are legit “five-tool” players in the way that Robert is. He can make crazy plays in the field using his speed and skill along with his ability to hit the ball to the moon. This kid hasn’t played a single MLB game yet and he is already one of the best players on the team.

Once Robert got to play against a team in a different color, exhibition or not, he looked amazing at many different points. He even showed that he can make a major adjustment at the plate against an elite pitcher like Kyle Hendricks. Not only is he going to be in the conversation for the Rookie of the Year award, but he is also going into the year as a favorite.

Robert is probably going to be lower in the lineup to begin his career. Every player hitting ahead of him is a very tough out which should make him even more dangerous. By the time the season is over, he might even be higher in the lineup. Some of the elite pitchers might carve him up early on but he will absolutely adjust and become an impact player in more ways than once.
