Mariners P Felix Hernandez gives up two runs in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez stayed unbeaten after throwing 6 2/3 innings in Wednesday night's 5-2 win over the Rangers.
Hernandez gave up two earned runs, five hits and one walk. He struck out four batters and now has a 1.82 ERA. Both of Hernandez's runs came in the second inning. He faced 25 hitters and threw 114 pitches.
"He didn't have his best stuff, not even close," manager Lloyd McClendon said after the game, per MLB.com. "But he gutted it out. He's a competitor."
Hernandez is now 4-0.
Hernandez's next start is projected for May 4 against the Angels.
Mariners ace Felix Hernandez throws complete-game gem Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez threw his 10th-career complete-game shutout during a 2-0 win Friday against the Twins. Hernandez, who also had his 24th career complete game, allowed five hits and no walks, while striking out nine.
Hernandez (3-0) was dialed in from the start Friday. He struck out the side in the first inning and didn't allow his first hit until Trevor Plouffe's two-out single in the fifth inning.
Hernandez put two baserunners on in the sixth and seventh innings, but he escaped both jams unscathed. He retired the final seven batters he faced.
"When I started the game, I knew I had it," Hernandez said of his performance, per the Pioneer Press. "I had the stuff to throw a perfect game, but it didn’t happen."
The Mariners ace threw 73 of 102 pitches for strikes. He lowered his ERA to 1.61.
"Just a great job of commanding the zone, commanding the tempo, keeping guys off balance just enough to make all of his stuff work,'' Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said.
Hernandez will be back on the mound Wednesday at Texas.
Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez strikes out 12 in win Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez allowed one run in seven innings of work in Seattle's 3-1 win over the Rangers Saturday.
Hernandez struck out 12 and needed 111 pitches, 70 for strikes, to get through his outing. Hernandez allowed two baserunners in the fifth, putting runners on first and third. He got Elvis Andrus to ground out to short, but allowed the run to score.
Manager Lloyd McClendon said Hernandez was feeling tightness in his quad during the game and was going to pull hiim in the sixth, but Hernandez convinced him to keep him in the seventh, according to the Seattle Times.
Hernandez, now 2-0, boasts a 2.37 ERA and will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Twins.
Mariners ace Felix Hernandez set to start Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) A right quad issue will not keep Mariners stud right-hander Felix Hernandez from his appointed rounds. Manager Lloyd McClendon confirmed that Hernandez will make his scheduled start Saturday against Texas.
King Felix has been strong to start the season, though he is coming off a subpar performance against the Angels. He is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 12 innings.
M's will check Felix Hernandez's leg after a throwing session
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Mariners will evaluate Felix Hernandez's right quadriceps after a throwing session on Wednesday before finalizing pitching plans for this weekend’s series against the Rangers at Safeco Field, manager Lloyd McClendon told reporters, per MLB.com.
"He played catch yesterday and felt fine," McClendon said. "He'll throw tomorrow and we'll make a decision. I don't foresee any setbacks, but I just want to cover myself."
Hernandez tweaked his ankle in the first inning and his right quad in the third inning of Sunday's start against the A's. He insists that his ankle is fine for Saturday's scheduled start against Texas.
"My ankle is fine," Hernandez said. "My ankle is better than my leg."
|2014 summary: Though already a Cy Young winner and five-time All-Star, Felix Hernandez turned in arguably the best season of his career in 2014, ranking second only to Clayton Kershaw (but then, who beats Clayton Kershaw?) in ERA and WHIP while ranking fourth in strikeouts. Those were all career bests, as were his hit and walk rates. Altogether, he ranked second among starting pitchers in Head-to-Head points leagues and third in Rotisserie.|
Playing time status: Is this some kind of joke? With Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia dropping out in recent years, Hernandez is now the unchallenged pitch-until-your-arm-falls-off guy in the majors, averaging more than 232 innings over his last six seasons for the Mariners. There was concern at one point that his arm may actually be falling off (or at least falling apart) with his average fastball velocity declining every year, but he reversed the trend last year and has only seen his strikeout rate rise regardless.
2015 outlook: The more innings Hernandez piles onto that golden arm of his, the better he seems to get. That obviously won't last forever, but age 29 probably isn't when it ends. He's as safe as it gets at starting pitcher, and with true aces in higher demand as the need for Fantasy owners to distinguish themselves at the position becomes greater with the increase in overall depth, he may join Kershaw in the first round of some drafts.
