Alonso took home 29 of the 30 first-place ballots and will be a tough act to follow as these rookies look to follow in his steps and take home NL ROY:

Gavin Lux +200
Gavin Lux opens up as the clear favorite for the NL ROY. Lux proved he could hand in the big-leagues last year after hitting .240 in 75 at-bats, but his potential stems from his .347 combined average in Double-A and Triple-A. Clearly the 22-year old has potential, and with already some MLB experience, he will have a great shot at NL ROY.
Mitch Keller +900
Keller might not have faired too well in the bigs least season, but his experience and stellar pitching in Triple-A (7-5 and 3.56 ERA in 19 starts) that landed him so high up on this list. If he can re-create that at the next level, he will be one of the top prospects to take home the award.
Carter Kieboom +1000
Carter Keiboom didn’t get much of a chance to shot what he could do for the World Series Champ Nationals last season, but he at least proved what he has the potential to do in the minors last season. Keiboom hit .303 while hitting 16 homeruns and knocking in 79 RBIs, hence why he is so high up on the list to win ROY.
Dustin May +1000
May became the spot-starter for the Dodgers last season, starting four games and appearing in 14 total, registering a 2-3 record and a 3.63 ERA. With that experience and a sub-2.4 ERA in Triple-A and a sub-3.8 Double-A, gives May a great chance to take home the hardware.
Dylan Carlson +1000
Carlson busted on to the scene last season after he hit a combined .292 at two different minor league levels, which included a .361 average in his stint in the Triple-A. Carlson has the bat and the speed (he stole 20 bases last year) to be a major player in the ROY race.
MacKenzie Gore +1000
Gore dominated the Single-A scene, posting a 7-1 and a stellar 1.02 ERA in 25 starts, hence why he is so high up to win ROY. He might have stumbled a bit in Double-A, but numbers like that will grab some attention at any level.
Brendan Rogers +1400
Rogers got a taste of the MLB, hitting .224 and batting in 7 RBIs in 76 at-bats, however, his .350 average and 21 RBIs has everyone about as high as they could be on him. If Rogers can re-create some of that success in the bigs, he will be one of the top prospects looking to take home ROY
Nico Hoerner +1600
Hoerner made the most of his time while being called-up for the Cubs, hitting .282 and collecting 17 RBIs, and also made a name for himself while hitting .284 in 70 games in the Double-A.
