As the season continues to take shape, the rookies are settling in and some are finding grooves and taking advantage of their opposition. The West is strong with rookie talent, most of which comes from one team.
Mike Trout and Dustin Ackley are the top prospects in the division, with Martin Perez and Chris Carter also looming on the horizon as potential game-changers as the Rookie of the Year ballot develops.
The AL West has been incredibly successful in pumping out great rookies, and this year could very well have a third consecutive winner to come out of this powerful division.
Here are the last three players from the AL West to win the Rookie of the Year award:
Neftali Feliz, Texas Rangers, 2010
Andrew Bailey, Oakland Athletics, 2009
Huston Street, Oakland Athletics, 2005
Now for the top five rookies in the AL West for 2011, so far.
