  • [July 9] Vladimir Guerrero Jr. put on quite a show at the MLB Home Run Derby, hitting 91 dingers, but he’s still behind Brandon Lowe in the odds to win the 2019 AL Rookie of the Year Award.
  • [March 13] It should come as no surprise to see that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has the shortest opening odds to win the 2019 AL Rookie of the Year Award. The 19-year-old phenom hit .381 last season at four different minor league stops.
