Pitcher of the Year Cody Anderson, Carolina (CLE)

Anderson took home top pitching honors after leading the Carolina League with a 2.34 ERA. The 6-foot-4 right-hander had a 1.10 WHIP and averaged 8.2 K/9 over 123 1/3 innings for the Mudcats. Anderson, 22, earned himself a callup to Double-A at the end of the season. He was selected by the Indians in the 14th round of the 2011 Draft.

Most Valuable Player Chris Curley, Winston-Salem (CHW)

Curley had to fight his way back from the Independent Leagues, and the 26-year-old looks poised to get his first crack at Double-A next season. Curley split time between shortstop and third base, hitting .280/.350/.471 in the process. He racked up a league leading 24 homers, 92 RBIs and 90 runs.
