AL Rookie of the Year Rankings: Oakland A's, AL West Dominate ROY Race

If you're an American League fan in the mood to see some good rookies in action, I recommend looking west.

The West Coast is home to the best rookie/player/New Jersey native on the planet in Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, but he's not the only rookie doing work out west. The Texas Rangers have an excellent rookie of their own in Yu Darvish, and the Oakland A's have built their success this season largely on the backs of rookie players.

Yoenis Cespedes stands out as being the most impressive A's rookie, but most of Oakland's best rookies make their living on the mound. In fact, their starting rotation features four rookies at the moment, and they have several more rookies in their bullpen.

The A's and the AL West in general are very well represented in this week's AL Rookie of the Year rankings. Scroll ahead to see how the race is shaping up heading into the final two weeks of the regular season.
