AL Rookie of the Year: Brennan Boesch (Tigers). Have you seen these numbers? A slash-line of .341/.369/.595. Twelve homers and 47 RBI in 62 games. In another couple of weeks, Boesch is going to have enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title, and right now he’d rank third in the AL in batting average and fourth in OPS.
