As expected, Yankees shut out of Rookie of the Year voting

By

Rays outfielder Wil Myers was named the AL Rookie of the Year this evening, which is no surprise. He was the best candidate in a weak freshman class. Not a single Yankees player received a Rookie of the Year vote, first place or otherwise, which was expected. Their only rookies of note this past season were Adam Warren and Preston Claiborne, so … yeah. The full voting results are right here. Marlins righty Jose Fernandez deservingly took home the NL award.

    Wil Myers was worth 2 WAR. Last year Mike Trout was worth 10.9 WAR. You could fit five Myers into one Trout.
