Jose Fernandez did not need much time after being selected out of high school with the 14th overall pick in the 2011 MLB draft by the Miami Marlins. After just 27 minor league starts, none of which come above High-A, the Marlins decided to star Fernandez in the majors in 2013.
There were obviously questions as to if this was the right move, but Fernandez answered them all with his outstanding year. He went 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA, which trailed only Clayton Kershaw in the National League. Fernandez leads the NL in H/9 and K/9 and was deservingly named an All-Star this year.
When things are said and done, Fernandez should take home the NL Rookie of the Year Award.
