The MLB regular season is quickly coming to a close and that means award races are wrapping up as well. Tampa Bay Rays' Randy Arozarena currently remains the favorite to take home the American League Rookie of the Year Award over Baltimore Orioles' Ryan Mountcastle and Texas Rangers' Adolis Garcia.

Arozarena is out in front of the pack with odds set at -175, according to player future odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook. Mountcastle (+370) and Garcia (+750) are the only other players with odds set under +1000.

Of course, Arozarena burst onto the scene during the 2020 postseason smacking a whopping 10 home runs in the playoffs. He has kept up his momentum and leads all AL rookies in runs scored (108), doubles (33), stolen bases (21), and walks (57) in 2021. The outfielder also ranks as the top rookie in wins above replacement (WAR), posting a mark of 4.9.

Meanwhile, Mountcastle has proven to be a strong power hitter and leads all AL rookies with 36 home runs and 107 RBI. Garcia has cooled down since his blazing hot start to the season, but he has created a spark on an underwhelming Texas squad. His 30 HRs rank No. 1 on the Rangers.

Here's a look at hoe the rest of the odds for the AL Rookie of the Year Award shake out.
