  • Player of the Year

    Baseball America announced the award early Tuesday morning and USA Today followed it up with theirs later in the afternoon. The voting was nearly unanimous. Myers enjoyed a breakout season in 2012 as he posted a slash line of .314/.387/.600 with 98 runs scored, 37 home runs, 109 RBI and six stolen bases between both Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha. He is just the seventh player to win both awards. The others were Braves outfielder Andruw Jones (1995-96), Cardinals pitcher Rick Ankiel (1999), Marlins pitcher Josh Beckett (2001), Rockies pitcher Jeff Francis (2004), Braves outfielder Jason Heyward (2009) and Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson (2010).

    Future beast.

    The Baseball America website lists a pitcher named Alex Meyer as their player of the year...a 6'9" 22 year old pitcher in the Nats organization who had an ERA of around 3 in A/A+. Seems like an odd choice on the surface, I'd guess it's more for physical tools than overwhelming stats. If he pans out, those Nats are going to be swimming in pitchers.
