    Luis Arraez is the Twins' ROY:
    Twins: Luis Arraez, 2B/LF, age 22
    The night of July 16 was when Twins fans really knew they had something special. Arraez, a relatively unknown infield prospect, inherited an 0-2 count against Mets fireballer Edwin Díaz and showed off his rare bat control and knowledge of the strike zone as he completed an 11-pitch plate appearance and drew a walk. Since Arraez first arrived in mid-May as an emergency injury replacement, his batting average has hovered around .350 all season. He’s so confident of the strike zone that he will vigorously shake his head as close pitches sail by, and the Twins like his hitting so much that they’re having him learn left field on the fly to keep his bat in the lineup. Francona compared Arraez to Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn earlier this season. That should say it all.

    The Twins are the first team in baseball history with 300 home runs in a season and they have 3 games left. They have clinched the AL Central and have the best road-record in baseball. Could be an interesting playoff year.
