Jose Fernandez's life

Fernandez had plenty of potential to be one of the best pitchers of his generation. The 24-year old defected from Cuba in 2008 and was drafted by the Miami Marlins in 2011. He won the NL Rookie of the Year award in 2013, while also making his first All-Star team and finishing only behind Clayton Kershaw and Adam Wainwright in the NL Cy Young Award race.

He lost much of his 2014 and 2015 seasons to Tommy John surgery, but Fernandez came back with the same Cuban flair he had previously shown, dominating on his way to an All-Star appearance and NL Cy Young consideration this season.
