Miguel Sano, Minnesota
Finally a guy not on the Tigers or Indians. Sano doesn’t have the great average this month like the other players on this list, but he has showcased a lot more power.
He fifth in the American League in August with eight home runs. He also had 23 RBI and 16 runs while hitting .274 in just 88 at-bats. The rookie is slashing .289/.394/.584 with 12 home runs, 38 RBI and 28 runs in 166 at-bats this season.
With the power surge, Sano is joining Lindor in AL Rookie of the Year talks.
