    I present to you the 2023 NL Rookie of the Year Thread. Just like with soxandgators AL one, here is where you should post and talk about you Rookies.

    SP Mike 'Froggy' Parker

    In the 2021 First Player Draft the LA Dodgers selected Mike 'Froggy' Parker as the #4 overall pick. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee product came to terms shortly after on a $2.2 mill signing bonus and headed straight for Chattanooga, TN to start his career owith the Lookouts. He would go on and post a 2-2 record with a 3.21 ERA, and 28 Ks in 33.2 IP. Over the offseason he dealt with some shoulder issues and soon recovered for the 2022 season. In this season he would bounce from AA to AAA back to AA. In AA his 14-7 record, 4.35 ERA, and 176 Ks landed him his first Southern League All Star Selection. With being so dominate he would pack his bags and head to Albuquerque where he would struggle. At that point he got shipped right back to Chattanooga for the rest of the season. When the season ended he put all his time and energy to get better and it showed in Spring Training. Scouts had him rated as a 1.5* Pitcher and Parker was able to double that rating in one month! Coach Saw was going to start him in AAA but SP Domingo Tapia went down for two months and they needed another SP. After thinking about he gave Parker the go ahead. Right now he is the #4 starter with 1 appearance. In the one appearance he pitched 7.2 IP, giving up 8 hits, 2 runs, 1 BB, and striking out 5 Cardinals. Only time will tell if he will become a superstar or be a bust!

    Nothing too exciting in Denver. The Rockies don't have any ROTY eligible players on our opening day roster except for one SP. And since it's an SP with .5 star potential and I'm the Rockies, I'm not going to really go into him, lol. He did have a great year last year with 249 Ks, 0.92 WHIP, and 7.4 WAR in A ball....but yeah, that was A ball. We're just looking forward to SS Jorge Lozano, C Don Taylor, and SP Jose Amador making solid contributions and hopefully progressing.

    The only rookie I might have as of now is LHP Joe Britt. He's probably right around the cut off for service time before September, so I'm not sure if he qualifies or not.

    My offense isn't doing much this year. At least they made him put in some work during the game.

    Yea that is true but on the flip side it sucks that my team couldn't put up any runs

    I don't think I have any rookies starting this year. And, like two years ago half my lineup were rookies.

    • BB/9- 3.35
    • K/9- 8.36
    • FIP- 2.80

    I brought up Leroy too early last year for him to be qualified for this year.

    Parker is starting to come down to Earth

    After pitching a great game against the Metropolitan's Parker got 7 days of rest before getting shelled by the Marlins. All 6 runs were scored against him and unfortunately this time his team could not bail him out.

    Parker throws a strong seven against the Cubs but strains his elbow against Houston.

    Domingo Tapia went down and was replaced by Parker but now he returns as Parker hits the DL.

    Amora hasn't exactly lit the world on fire but has been very productive. Will be hard for him to keep his job though as we Pete White looks like the spark our team may need.

    Looks like Mike Parker did a reverse Michael Jackson while being on the DL.
