Jose Fernandez of the Miami Marlins and Wil Myers of the Tampa Bay Rays have been selected baseball’s Rookies of the Year. Fernandez stood out in a deep National League class, and the pitcher received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers’ Association of America panel in results revealed Monday. His debut season was so superb that he’s one of three finalists for the N.L. Cy Young Award, with the winner to be announced Wednesday. Myers took home the American League prize after putting up impressive offensive numbers in barely half a season. The right fielder was chosen first on 23 of 30 ballots, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer.
