Best Jerry Rice Rookie Card: 2016 Bowman Chrome Draft RC
Prior to the 2020 season, we must admit Kyle Lewis was not on our big board of top prospects in baseball that may win the 2020 ROY but boy was he a surprise to us.
He won the 2020 ROY award after working his way back from a serious knee injury that occurred 40 games into his MLB career.
We still are not all-in on Lewis but he definitely deserves consideration and he may just end up winning an MVP at some point in his career but let’s not put the cart before the horse… we are taking a wait and see approach… show us what you got in 2021 Kyle and then we will make our decision.
