Kyle Alexander Lewis (born July 13, 1995) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball (MLB). Prior to his MLB debut, he played college baseball for the Mercer Bears.

For his 2016 performance at Mercer, Lewis was named an All-American, Baseball America's 2016 College Player of the Year, and won the 2016 Golden Spikes Award. He was selected in the first round of the 2016 Major League Baseball draft by the Seattle Mariners.

Lewis made his major league debut in September 2019, and was unanimously selected as the 2020 American League Rookie of the Year.[1]

Amateur career

Lewis attended Shiloh High School in Snellville, Georgia. He played both baseball and basketball in high school.[2] He chose baseball over basketball and attended Mercer University, where he played college baseball for the Bears. As a freshman in 2014, he appeared in 42 games with 17 starts and hit .281/.340/.382 with two home runs and 17 runs batted in (RBI) over 89 at-bats.[3] After his freshman season he played collegiate summer baseball in the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Cotuit Kettleers.[4] As a sophomore in 2015, he played in 54 games, hitting .367/.423/.677 with 17 home runs and 56 RBI. He was the Southern Conference Baseball Player of the Year and was the co-winner of the Gregg Olson Award, bestowed upon college baseball's breakout player of the year.[5][6] After the season, Lewis returned to the Cape Cod Baseball League, playing for the Orleans Firebirds.[7] For his 2015 performance with the Firebirds, Lewis was named a Cape Cod League All-Star.[8]

As a junior at Mercer, he hit .395/.535/.731 with 20 home runs and 72 RBI, and was named an All-American by Louisville Slugger, Baseball America, the American Baseball Coaches Association, and Collegiate Baseball.[9] Following that season, Lewis received the 2016 Golden Spikes Award, which is awarded annually to the best amateur baseball player in the United States.[10] In addition, he was the Southern Conference Baseball Player of the Year for the second straight year and was named both Baseball America's College Player of the Year and the American Baseball Coaches Association's Division I National Player of the Year.[11][12]

Professional career

Minor Leagues

The Seattle Mariners selected Lewis with the 11th overall pick in the 2016 Major League Baseball draft.[13] He made his professional debut with the Everett AquaSox.[14] Lewis only played 30 games for the Everett AquaSox due to a right ACL injury,[15] batting .299 with three home runs and 26 RBIs. He spent 2017 with both the AZL Mariners and the Modesto Nuts, posting a combined .257 average with seven home runs and 31 RBIs in 49 games between both clubs, and 2018 with Modesto and the Arkansas Travelers, batting .244 with nine home runs and 52 RBIs in 86 games with the two teams.[16]

Lewis returned to Arkansas for the 2019 season,[17] hitting .263/.343/.398/.741 with 11 home runs and 62 RBI over 122 games.[18]

Seattle Mariners
