Jose Fernandez finished in third place for CY Young voting on Wednesday night behind veterans Clayton Kershaw and Adam Wainwright, but that doesn’t mean his future isn’t bright. Fernandez finished second in all of baseball with his 2.19 ERA and his 6.3 WAR according to Baseball Reference was the sixth best among pitchers.

Fernandez will be the anchor of the Marlins rotation for at least five more seasons, and maybe more, if the team can find a way to sign him to a longterm extension.
