Kyle Lewis, along with Astros pitcher Cristian Javier and White Sox outfielder Luis Robert, was named as a finalist for the AL Rookie of the Year award.
Lewis sported a stellar .262/.364/.437 slash line with 11 home runs, 28 RBI, and five stolen bases over 206 at-bats for the upstart Mariners in 2020. He's on track to be the first Mariner to win the award since Ichiro Suzuki way back in 2001. Cristian Javier posted a solid 5-2 record, 3.48 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and a 54:18 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 regular season innings and also pitched well in the postseason for Houston. Luis Robert, who was the prohibitive favorite entering the season, finished with a .233/.302/.435 batting line to go along with 11 home runs, 31 RBI, and nine stolen bases after a rough September. The winner will be announced on November 9th.
Kyle Lewis went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Mariners 3-2 win over the Astros on Wednesday.
September has been a struggle for the young center fielder as he's seen his batting average drop from .319 in the beginning of the month to .277 now. He appears to have hit a wall but he's still put together a special season for the Mariners with a .277/.378/.462 batting line to go along with 11 home runs, 28 RBI, and four stolen bases. He's firmly in the running for AL-rookie of the year.
Kyle Lewis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Mariners 4-1 win over the Padres on Saturday.
Lewis crushed a hanging Adrian Morejon curveball into the empty bleachers in left field for his 11th dinger of the season, it was his only hit of the night. After a blazing start to the season, Lewis hit a wall in September, slashing just .176.283/.373 with a 20:8 K/BB ratio. He's still in contention for AL rookie of the year and has a solid foundation to build on going into next season. He's had a great season overall and the Mariners know they have their center fielder of the future in the 25-year old.
Kyle Lewis went 2-for-5 with two singles and two strikeouts in the Mariners 9-3 loss to the San Fransisco Giants on Wednesday.
Lewis wasn't phased by the postponement and move over to Oracle Park as a result of the wildfires, putting together his 15th multi-hit outing of the season on Wednesday. The rising star is enjoying a great second season and is in the running for AL Rookie of the Year.
