Wil Myers has been named the top rookie of the American League for the 2013 season and it wasn’t even close. Myers received 23 of the 30 first-place votes. Chris Archer finished third with a single first-place vote (see full voting breakdown below).

Myers is the third Rays player to win the award, joining Evan Longoria (2008) and Jeremy Hellickson (2011).

Here is a look at what Myers and Archer looked like prior to the award announcement on the MLB Network. Check back shortly. We will have video of the announcement and a full breakdown of the voting…

    What a class act Chris Archer is! Archer looks so well groomed- GQ quality and Wil Myers looks like someone taken from a park bench that had a mic clipped on him.

    So glad that the Rays had 2 qualifiers. Wil was a shoe in for the award and congrats to him. Great to see two former Bulls teamates together.

    Can’t wait for the SPring Training Schedule, should be out soon..See you in Port Charlotte.
