Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez took 47.6 percent of the money wagered at BetMGM to win the 2022 American League Rookie of the Year award.
Rodriguez is having an encouraging spring practice with three doubles, a home run, five RBI, two stolen bases and a .925 OPS.
He also ranks second on Baseball America’s 2022 Top 100 Prospects list.
It all adds up that Rodriguez’s chances of winning the Rookie of the Year award have dropped from +900 to +550.
However, there are some differences in the odds for Rodriguez to win the AL Rookie of the Year award across multiple sportsbooks and DraftKings Sportsbook currently offers the best number.
