Jose Fernandez & Wil Myers Claim Rookie of the Year Honors – VIDEO

Major League Baseball handed out its 2013 Rookie of the Year awards on Monday, with Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez being named in the National League, while Tampa Rays outfielder Wil Myers was honored in the American League.

The 21-year old Fernandez, received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers’ Association of America panel in results announced Monday, beating out outfielder Yasiel Puig, of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the award.

Fernandez went 12-6 in 2013, and finished second to the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw in ERA., finishing at a 2.19.

In 172.2 innings of work, Fernandez allowed only 111 hits, along with 58 walks, while striking out 187 batters.

The 22-year old Myers received 23 of 30 first place votes, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer.

Myers, who was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Royals prior to the start of the year, hit a .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs in only 88 games after he was called up from the minors in June.
