Marlins | Jose Fernandez caps off excellent season

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez finished off his excellent rookie season against the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, Sept. 11. He finishes the year with a 2.19 ERA, and only three other rookie pitchers to qualify for the ERA title have finished with an ERA under 2.20 since the award started in 1947. Fernandez also finished the year 9-0 at home with a 1.19 ERA, which was by far the best in baseball this year. His opponents' average on his breaking ball this season was just .182.

Fantasy Tip: Keeper leaguers that stashed Fernandez away early were rejoicing all year. Fernandez's value will likely be inflated on draft day next year because of his great performance in his first season. Keep this in mind if you want him on your squad.
