When Craig Kimbrel notched his 40th save, tying Neftali Feliz's rookie record, he all but guaranteed himself the NL Rookie of the Year. Sure, Freddie Freeman is having a nice rookie campaign with a .293 average, 18 homers and 63 RBI, but it won't be enough compared to Kimbrel's record-setting effort.
While the NL award is all but wrapped up, the AL version is still yet to be decided. Some players started hot and have cooled off, others started slow and come on fast. Regardless, the American League Rookie of the Year still has a handful of viable candidates, and how they play the next six weeks will determine who wins.
For those out there who can't wait until the season's end to see who wins, find out here as the candidates are put into the same spotlight.
