Jake Cronenworth, along with Alec Bohm and Devin Williams, has been named as a finalist for the 2020 NL Rookie of The Year award.
Cronenworth put up a solid season in San Diego, slashing .285/.354/.477 with four home runs, 20 RBI, and three stolen bases across 172 at-bats. Bohm broke on to the scene in mid-August for the Phillies and finished with a .338 batting average and .881 OPS with four home runs and 23 RBI over 160 AB's. Williams was sensational out of the Brewers bullpen, registering a 4-1 record with a 0.33 ERA, 0.63 WHIP, and a 53:9 K/BB ratio over 27 innings. A case could be made for all three to take home the award but the winner will officially be announced on November 9th.

Cronenworth led off the bottom of the second inning with a triple, which was an inch away from going over the wall for a home run. He would score off an Austin Nola sacrifice fly later in the inning, though. The three-bagger was the rookie's only hit of the day. The 26-year old put up an impressive season in 2020 with a .285/.354/.477 slash line to go along with four home runs and 20 RBI.
