While Boston was predicted to promote two blue-chip prospects during the 2016 season, the consensus pick for the winner of this award would have clearly been Yoan Moncada. However, Moncada is in Florida prepping for the Arizona Fall League and the other guy—Andrew Benintendi—is the 2016 FenwayNation Rookie Of The Year. While only playing in 34 games with 105 at-bats, the 22-year old former Razorback hit .295 with an on-base percentage of .359. He clubbed two HRs, knocked in 14 runs and made several spectacular catches in left-field. Congratulations, Andrew, you are the 2016 FenwayNation Rookie Of The Year.
