|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/19/14) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez has been cleared to start a throwing program, according to MLB.com.
Fernandez will begin throwing in 12 days. He underwent Tommy John surgery in May. Fernandez posted a 2.44 ERA over 51 2/3 innings before he was injured.

|Attorney details timeline of Jose Fernandez's injury |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/16/14) The process that led to Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez's elbow injury might have begun in a previous start, according to a statement made by his lawyer Friday.
Fernandez attorney, Ralph Fernandez, released a statement Friday that shed some light on the injury. Fernandez apparently suffered a thigh injury when he was hit by a line drive May 4 against the Dodgers that caused a chance in his delivery.
"This prompted a completely unanticipated change in delivery which neither the staff nor his coaches could discern," the statement reads, via the Sun-Sentinel. "Despite many exchanges on the subject in the days that followed he felt that with the Marlins regaining first place in the division he could not let his team down. Apparently the injury was worse than he believed."
The hamstring injury ultimately led to a domino effect, where Fernandez might have over compensated. The ultimately injury to his elbow came during the third inning of his finale start against the Padres, which ultimately led Fernandez to require surgery to repair a torn UCL in his right elbow.
Fernandez underwent successful surgery Friday in Los Angeles, and is expected to require 12 to 18 months of recovery before he is able to return to pitching in games.
|Report: Jose Fernandez set for Friday surgery |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/14) Marlins fallen ace Jose Fernandez will undergo Tommy John surgery Friday morning in Los Angeles, league sources have told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The procedure is intended to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.
Fernandez is out for the season, but Heyman is further reporting that his elbow is otherwise in excellent shape, making him a strong candidate to return to full health.
|Scouting out Jose Fernandez replacements |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/14/14) We've cried our tears and cursed our fate, but at some point, we have to move on from Jose Fernandez. The Marlins medical staff has already recommended Tommy John surgery for him. As much as it hurts, he's not coming back this season.
So then, what do you do about it? You didn't invest this much of your life in a frivolous game only to quit when the going gets tough, did you? Of course not.
First, understand you won't be getting Fernandez-like production from anybody you can reasonably acquire, but you can fill that hole at the top of your rotation with an ace -- or something close to it -- if you're willing to invest in an underachiver. Some of the best buy-low candidates at starting pitcher include Chris Sale, Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, Jordan Zimmermann, Homer Bailey and Mike Minor, whose one bad start in three might have his owner feeling uneasy. Or maybe not, but it's worth a shot. I'd also include Anibal Sanchez in that group. I have my own concerns about him given how inefficient he was before the injury, but hey, a bargain is a bargain.
Obviously, you can't expect to find anything as good on the waiver wire, but some of the high-upside types still available in less than 80 percent of leagues include Ubaldo Jimenez, Josh Beckett, Drew Pomeranz, Tyler Skaggs and Drew Smyly.
|The Marlins were adamant in spring training last season they weren't going to rush uber prospect Jose Fernandez, who was coming off an outstanding season in the minors in 2012, which thrust him into the mix as one of the top prospects in baseball. It's funny how plans can change so quickly. Even though the 2011 first-round pick never made a start above high Class A, the Marlins called on the then 20-year-old hurler when the team was forced to place two starters on the disabled list at the start of the season. Now, we know the rest as history. Fernandez took home NL rookie of the year honors and finished third in the NL Cy Young race after going 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 28 starts. He also struck out 9.7 batters per nine innings and allowed more than two earned runs just five times. In fact, he made it six innings and allowed no runs eight times, and allowed one or no runs in more than half (15) of his starts. The Marlins shut down Hernandez after 172 2/3 innings and he only surpassed 100 pitches eight times last season in order to protect his arm, but hopefully he won't have any restrictions in 2014 after a stellar rookie year. Fernandez is already among the best Fantasy starting pitchers and should start going off draft boards starting in the third round.
