Community top rookies for future performance #6

Despite being a couple of years older than the typical top rookie, Yu Darvish becomes the #5 player on our list with 48% of the vote. He beats out Yoenis Cespedes, with 17% of the vote, and Jesus Montero, Jarrod Parker and Andrelton Simmons, each with 9% of the vote.

1. Mike Trout Outfielder Los Angeles Angels (83%)

2. Bryce Harper Outfielder Washington Nationals (100%)

3. Manny Machado Infielder Baltimore Orioles (47%)

4. Matt Moore, Pitcher, Tampa Bay Rays (45%)

5. Yu Darvish, Pitcher Texas Rangers (48%)

I'm going to drop Wade Miley from the ballot for a couple of rounds, although you can still vote for him as a write in if you want to.

Temporarily dropped: Matt Harvey 0% (round 4), Wade Miley 0% (round 5)

I'm going to add Lance Lynn and Erasmo Ramirez this round.

Will Middlebrooks and Anthony Gose will be added next round and I'll also put Matt Harvey back on the ballot. Ryan Cook, Kelvin Herrera, Drew Smyly, Todd Frazier, AJ Griffin, Tom Milone and Starling Marte, are among those I am looking at adding in the coming rounds. Please suggest more names, or your favorites among that group, below.

So, who do you like for #6?
