NL Rookie of the Year Pick via Chris “The Bear” Fallica:

Yoshiobu Yamamoto and Jackson Chourio have gotten the headlines and are of shorter odds, but the Marlins’ Max Mayer is worth a play here. 

Mayer was the third overall pick in 2020 and has looked good this spring, as he’s just about back from Tommy John surgery. 

With Sandy Alcántara out, there should be a spot in the rotation when Meyer is ready. He’s got the stuff to make good on all the hype.

PICK: Max Meyer (+3000) to win NL ROY
