The MLB All-Star had a season to remember. Alonso broke Aaron Judge's rookie home run record by knocking out 53 dingers, leading the league in that category. He also knocked in 120 runs and led all rookies in WAR, according to Baseball Reference. If he did all of that his first year in the Bigs, imagine what he can do the rest of his career.

Pete Alonso may have muscled his way to the National League ROY, but Alvarez has superstar written all over him. Houston's first-year star was a key member of the Astros' World Series team and already knows what it takes to in the playoffs. Alonso does not.

The Cuban native led all American League rookies in WAR and led all rookies who played more than 80 games in OPS. Alonso may have made history this season, but Alvarez may make history over the span of his career.
