100 Rookie MLB Front Office Draft of the Year

when Julio Rodríguez was in

for the Mariners It might come as a surprise to some when making the Opening Day lineup , and once he did, he was an immediate contender for American League Rookie of the Year honors, easily received this award. No one in the National League could have seen Michael Harris II jump from Double-A to the big leagues, let alone win Rookie of the Year.
So predicting who will win the 2022 rookie award is a It is understandably a daunting task. We recently made our choice — among many predictions — on the MLB Pipeline Podcast. But what does the baseball world think?
We posed a series of questions to front office officials – from general managers to farm supervisors, scouting supervisors to analysts 2022 MLB pipeline vote. Among the many topics that will be covered in the week-long series, we ask them to be 20221004 Rookie of the Year in each league.
The result is as follows:
National League
66% – Corbin Carroll, OF, D-backs

9% – Francisco Álvarez, C, Mets

Also received votes: Elly De La Cruz, SS/3B, Reds; Sal Frelick, OF, Brewers; Matt Mervis, 1B, Cubs; Bobby Miller, RHP, Dodgers; Jared Schuster, LHP, Warriors Teams; Ezequiel Tovar, SS, Rockies; Miguel Vargas, 3B/OF, Dodgers; Jordan Walker, OF, Cardinals.

Card Roll held his own in his major league debut last year as the clear frontrunner. Even more impressive is that he missed almost all of the 2023 Season after shoulder surgery. He’s doing really fast in the minor leagues of 19, release 1.19 OPS, at D- It was mostly between Double-A and Triple-A before the backs called him up.

The tools are definitely all there as he is one of the best pure hitting prospects in the game with 73speed20-arrive-51 Scouting Scale. He has plenty of power to use. He hit24 Home Run 70 The league game could exceed earlier expectations for the division.

And he definitely has a chance. Regardless, Carroll might have a chance to stay in the majors this season, but with the Daulton Varsho trade, Carroll could be a center fielder for the D-backs on Opening Day and maybe a starter from Day 1 .
Alvarez was the only other candidate to receive more than 3% of the vote. Power is legit – he got hit 24 for his home runs over the past two minor league seasons — and most thought it would play out in the majors. His path to regular playing time isn’t as clear as Carroll’s.

American League
Only five players received votes in this match:
50% – Gunnar Henderson, 3B/SS, Orioles
9% – Hunter Brown, RHP, Astros

9% – Triston Casas, 1B, Red Sox

6% – Anthony Volpe, SS, Yankees

3% – Josh Jung, 3B, Rangers
Volpe is the only player in this group who has yet to reach the majors, with the other four making their debuts last season. Big favorite Henderson played the most minutes.

and Like Carroll, Henderson has a clear path to Opening Day assignments, likely at third base (although he’s perfectly capable of playing shortstop). He also kept his own once he was drafted by Baltimore Status .

Henderson, photographed at 94 draft — the round after the Orioles took Adley Luchman with the No. 1 overall pick — has made impressive adjustments from his first full year ; to his second, learning to be more selective. It’s helped him play more of his power, while lefty hitters are only scratching the surface. He’s running well, and if you combine his overall stats between the minors and the majors, MLB Pipeline Hitting Prospect of the Year has -20 season.
Brown and Casas received an equal number of votes. Brown certainly impressed in the majors last year, and the Astros liked him enough to give him time out of the bullpen in the playoffs. Pure stuff no doubt, fastball touches 94 mph and has great life and an easy curve that leads four-tone mixes. Still, questions about command, not to mention a crowded major league rotation, could mean playing a role in the bullpen. Casas should be the Red Sox’s starting first baseman and has legitimate power, but will Justin Turner take some AB against southpaws?
Those who voted for Volpe believe he’ll be on the Yankees’ lineup as soon as possible, even if he’s not on Opening Day. Even with his 2019 slow start to the season, Wall Wear back to back -24 In Minor season, he went

– 39 exist finished in the top three. It’s not entirely clear where he’ll play in the Yankees’ infield, but hopefully he’ll hit enough to force New York’s front office to take a shot.
Jung came up and hit five major league home runs last year 93 at-bats, though he struggled a bit with his approach. He should have a chance to be the Rangers’ opening day third baseman.
The fact that Carroll and Henderson are clear choices for major league executives begs the question: Which of the two do they prefer? Stay tuned for future articles in this series to find out.
