MLB Odds: Paul Skenes +2000 to win NL Rookie of the Year ahead of debut

2023 MLB Draft first overall pick Paul Skenes will make his major league debut on Saturday for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

And the flamethrowing right-hander is already among the favorites to win NL Rookie of the Year at +2000.

Skenes is currently sixth in the betting, but could leap quickly depending on how he performs. Cubs pitcher Shota Imanaga (+200) and Dodgers pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto (+350) are currently the top-two favorites to win NL ROY.

The 21-year-old will make his MLB debut on Saturday, May 11 against the Chicago Cubs.

Skenes has been taking Triple-A by storm in 2024.

With a 0.99 ERA with 45 strikeouts in 27.1 innings pitched across seven starts, he already looks like an MLB All-Star. The No. 1 overall pick in last summer’s draft also helped lead the LSU Tigers to their seventh national championship in 2023.

Odds mentioned in this article were correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.
