Even with an elbow injury that will require Tommy John surgery, Ohtani has more than lived up to the hype this season. He's hitting .283/.362/.568 with 20 doubles and 22 homers in 355 plate appearances, and, on the rate basis, he's been a top 10 hitter in baseball. On top of that, he's also thrown 51 2/3 innings with a 3.31 ERA and 63 strikeouts. Playing time will be the biggest obstacle for Ohtani in the official Rookie of the Year voting. Both Andujar (.295/.331/.524) and Torres (.275/.343/.482) have roughly 200 more plate appearances, but they also haven't pitched. Andujar has been the Yankees' best and most consistent hitter all season, though he also rates as one of the worst defensive third basemen in the game, dragging down his overall value.
