Alonso product likely to join Myers
Tonight's rookie of the year announcements are likely to be all about local flavor.
Along with the Rays' Wil Myers, the AL favorite, Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez is expected to win the NL award. The Alonso High product had one of the best rookie seasons ever by a pitcher, finishing second in the league with a 2.19 ERA and striking out 187, against 58 walks, in 172⅔ innings.
Fernandez, 21, is competing with Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig and Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller.
