Every season, fans are introduced to a slew of new rookies.
The National League has boasted a particularly exciting crop of future stars, with youngsters like Jose Fernandez, Yasiel Puig, Julio Teheran, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Shelby Miller all gracing the field.
One could argue that if any of those players were in the American League instead, any of them could take home Rookie of the Year honors due to the comparative dearth of talent in the Junior Circuit.
When considering the "Rookie of the Year Stock Watch," it’s important to note that some players are not eligible. For instance, Yan Gomes (98 at-bats and 83 active days) and Leonys Martin (54 at-bats and 113 active days) are not eligible for the Rookie of the Year Award, as they’ve exceeded 45 active roster days prior to the 2013 season.
