27-year old righty swinging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes finished 2nd for the Rookie of the Year Award and he was also #10 in MVP voting in the A.L. Cespedes played in 129 games for the A’s last year and he was 142 of 487 (.292 avg, .861 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 23 homers, 82 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. A’s GM Billy Beane was openly questioned by a lot of “experts” when he gave Cespedes a big deal last winter, but who is laughing now? Beane as usual. Cespedes is going to make a real run at the MVP Award in 2013, if he can stay healthy.
