Making it in the majors: the best MLB rookie seasons

[post_page_title]Jose Fernandez[/post_page_title]
Year: 2013
Team: Miami Marlins
In 2013, Jose Fernandez broke out in the majors with an incredible 2.19 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. The young pitcher, only 20-years-old at the time, struck out 187 batters in 172.2 innings pitched during that first season, while walking only 58. While the Marlins weren’t a good team that season – they won only 62 games with 100 losses – Fernandez was a bright spot to build around for the future. Unfortunately Fernandez died in a boating accident in late 2016, arguably before he even reached his true potential.
