Bernie on the Scene: AL Rookies of Consequence

This article is part of our Bernie on the Scene series.

A note before looking at American League rookies with potential fantasy impact for 2021.

Again this year, Bernie on the Scene fantasy teams are open to RotoWire subscribers.

We will have two 10-team roto leagues.  There is an entry fee for each league.

League One is sold out. All 10 spaces are filled. 

Entry for League Two is now open. If you wish to learn more about League Two, simply email your interest to me at BPleskoff@aol.com. I will send you details. Our League Commissioner for both leagues is Derek Simon. Derek does a fantastic job, and I think you will really enjoy playing in our leagues.

American League Rookies

Rookies come in all sizes and shapes and with all skill sets. This week, I profile American League rookies I believe will be relevant this season.

The players below are those with rookie status remaining.

Randy Arozarena, OF, Rays
Bats Right
Signed as international free agent from Cuba
5-11, 185
Age 24

Most fans were introduced to Arozarena during the 2020 playoffs when he hit 10 home runs. He has won the left field job in Tampa Bay and likely will hit in the middle of the Rays batting order. 

Put mildly, Arozarena has lightning quick hands and can barrel the ball to all parts of the field. The ball jumps off his bat with that special sound we love to hear.

Conclusions: Arozarena should be targeted as a potential fantasy regular offering power on a solid team.
