MLB's Rookie Leaders

100 games into the season - who are the top rookies? 

The Mets have two rookies who have had an impact on the team this year - Dillon Gee and Justin Turner.  How do they shape up?  And why isn't Justin Turner on MLB.com's top rookie tracker?  He's a rookie.  He won rookie of the month this year.  So MLB - what gives?


Jason Pridie is on the rookie tracker list.

So the glaring Justin Turner omission notwithstanding - top rookies by major categories:

1) Danny Espinosa - Nationals - 48
2) Freddy Freeman - Braves - 45
3) Darwin Barney - Cubs - 42
4) Mark Trumbo - Angels - 38

 Justin Turner - Mets - 30

1) Mark Trumbo - 18
2) Danny Espinosa - 17
3) J.P. Arencebia - 15
