Four Phillies have been named the Rookie of the Year in their history. Let’s take a look back on the Phillies that produced incredible rookie seasons.

Looking at this year’s Rookie of the Year winners, I am envious the Phillies don’t have these players. Corey Seager was an MVP finalist to go along with his Rookie of the Year award, living up to the hype of a No. 1 overall prospect. Any team would love to have Michael Fulmer in their rotation as well, as he was a solid piece for Detroit this entire season.

The Phillies still have some candidates for Rookie of the Year in their future. J.P. Crawford is among the best prospects in baseball, and next year he will likely debut. If Roman Quinn can translate his performance from last September to a full season and stay healthy, he would be a likely candidate for the award as well.

For pessimists about Phillies prospects, the team has produced Rookies of the Year in the past since the award’s inception in 1947. Here we’ll take a look back on the Phils who won the Rookie of the Year award in their inaugural season.
