Mike Ehrmann

Jose Iglesias is joined by the Rays' Chris Archer and Wil Meyers as finalists for the AL Rookie of the Year.

The Baseball Writers' Association of America announced their finalists for the 2013 Jackie Robinson Award, better known as American League Rookie of the Year. Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is one of three rookies nominated.

Iglesias started the season with the Boston Red Sox, but was picked up at the trade deadline by the Tigers when Jhonny Peralta was suspended for his part in the Biogenesis scandal. Iglesias was a human highlight reel at shortstop, while ending the season having hit a respectable .303/.349/.386 with three home runs and 29 RBIs.

Joining Iglesias as AL Rookie of the Year finalists is a pair of Tampa Bay Rays rookies, starting pitcher Chris Archer and outfielder Wil Myers.

Going into awards season Meyers was the consensus leader over Iglesias and Archer for the various Rookie of the Year Awards. That's just how it's played out so far, Myers named Sporting News Rookie of the Year and AL Outstanding Rookie in the MLB Players Choice Awards.

The AL and NL Rookie of the Year Awards will be announced by the BBWAA November 11.
