Shohei Otani (Angels) - AL Rookie of the Year

In terms of MLB rookies, Otani was the "Sho" this season. The Los Angeles Angels had high hopes for him, and his future looks incredibly bright. Otani was a dual-player providing both pitching and batting for the Angels. However, he became injured and required Tommy John surgery, which took him away from the pitching mound. Still, he threw for over 51 innings, struck out 63, and recorded a 3.31 ERA. I addition, he was a .285 hitter with 22 home runs and 10 stolen bases this season.
