They put a cap on him at the start of the season. I think he went over the cap too. He really had a heck of a year though. It could arguably be the best season by a rookie pitcher. I really can't think of any other rookie pitchers who had a better season. Alexander, Seaver, Fidrych, Gooden, Nomo or Valenzuela?? if you go by era plus Fernandez has them all beat and it's not even close.
