Orioles' Trey Mancini named finalist for AL Rookie of the Year

Orioles' Trey Mancini named finalist for AL Rookie of the Year

Orioles outfielder-first baseman Trey Mancini was named one of three finalists for this year’s American League Rookie of the Year Award on Tuesday night.

While it’s likely a forgone conclusion that Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge will win the award, the recognition Mancini receives by being a finalist caps a remarkable season.

In his first full major league season, Mancini was one of the Orioles’ steadiest hitters, batting .293/.338/.488 with 24 homers and 78 RBIs, but his 2.2 wins above replacement ranked just eighth among AL rookies, a number that regressed because of negative fielding metrics despite Mancini adjusting well to a transition to the outfield.
