Fernandez stood out in a deep National League class, and the pitcher received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers Association of America panel in results revealed Monday.

Myers took home the American League prize after hitting .293 with 23 doubles, 13 home runs, and 53 RBI in 88 games. The right fielder was chosen first on 23 of 30 ballots, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer.

Lorenzo Bundy, who was managing at Triple-A Albuquerque, joins the team to take Wallachs spot.
Mauer done catching: Joe Mauer will move from catcher to first base on a full-time basis for the Minnesota Twins.
The 30-year-old Mauer missed the last six weeks of the season recovering from a concussion suffered while catching. The Twins said they consulted with Mayo Clinic doctors and team physicians, and Mauer and the organization agreed the move was in the best interest of his long-term health given the inherent injury risks behind the plate.
