Which rookie player has impressed you the most?

Geovany Soto, Cubs C......21%
Evan Longoria, Rays 3B......16%
Edinson Volquez, Reds P......16%
Jacoby Ellsbury, Red Sox OF......12%
Jay Bruce, Reds OF......10%

FAST FACTS: Volquez, who pitched in parts of the last three seasons with Texas, is not technically a rookie; his Reds teammate Johnny Cueto (7th, 3.5%) was the only other pitcher among the top 10 vote getters.... Soto's 17 homers and 58 RBIs through Sunday led NL rookies.... Longoria's 19 homers were the most among AL rookies....Ellsbury's 35 stolen bases led the American League.
