Italics denote the winner of that year's Rookie of the Year Award. The majority of players named Rookie of the Year were also recognized as a Rookie of the Month at least once, since the latter was established in 2001. The exceptions have been Huston Street (2005, AL), Hanley Ramírez (2006, NL), Michael Fulmer (2016, AL), Kyle Lewis (2020, AL), Devin Williams (2020, NL) and Randy Arozarena (2021, AL).

In two instances, the award has been shared by players for the same month: Josh Johnson and Dan Uggla for June 2006 in the National League (NL); and Ben Revere and Jemile Weeks for June 2011 in the American League (AL).

Out of a possible six months during a player's rookie season, the most times a player has been named Rookie of the Month is four, achieved by Ichiro Suzuki (2001, AL), Mike Trout (2012, AL) and Aaron Judge (2017, AL). Three-time winners have been Jason Bay (2004, NL), José Abreu (2014, AL), Juan Soto (2018 NL), Pete Alonso (2019, NL), and Yordan Álvarez (2019, AL). A number of players have won it twice.
