|Felix Hernandez hit hard vs. Rangers |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/9/14) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez was not at his best on Sunday against the Rangers in Cactus League play.
Hernandez surrendered a run-scoring double to Robinson Chirinos in the second, a run scoring double to Prince Fielder and a two-run double to Adam Rosales in the third inning. He was charged with four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four over 2 1/3 innings pitched. He has allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings this spring.
|Felix Hernandez throws two scoreless innings in spring debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/4/14) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez made his spring debut Tuesday, throwing two scoreless innings while giving up two hits and a walk and striking out one in his team's 4-1 win over the Dodgers.
The Mariners chose to delay the start of Hernandez's spring action so that he wouldn't be overworked heading into the regular season. He didn't make his first appearance until March 7 last spring before posting his typically excellent regular-season numbers.
|Felix Hernandez won't pitch in game until March 4 |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/26/14) The Mariners don't want to overwork ace Felix Hernandez in spring training. They don't have pegged him for his first exhibition game appearance until March 4 against the Dodgers.
Hernandez will hope for better hitting support this season. His record the last four seasons combined is just 52-45 combined despite a 3.06 ERA during that stretch.
|Felix Hernandez feels stronger after productive offseason |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/23/14) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez said he feels physically stronger after spending the offseason working out under the supervision of trainer Rafael Alvarez in Venezuela.
"I'm throwing pretty good. I'm feeling great," Hernandez said, per MLB.com. "That's why I prepared myself. I was hitting the weights. It was me and Panda (Pablo Sandoval) working with Rafael Alvarez and he's pretty good. We were running, doing the little things, shuttles, hitting the weights, a lot of stuff."
Hernandez feels more power in his lower body, which could help increase his velocity and endurance.
"I think last year I came too light and it was too much," Hernandez said. "I had no power. My legs weren't strong enough. Now, I think I'm good. You have to figure out which way you're going to be."
|Felix Hernandez's home catches fire |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(11/4/13) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez and his family were not home Monday night when his home in Bellevue, Wash. caught on fire, according to several reports. There is no word yet on the extent of the damage to the 27-year-old's home.
|After five straight seasons of 230-plus innings, Felix Hernandez's durability was called into question for the first time last year, when a strained oblique limited him to only three starts in September. He was his usual studly self before then, though, even lowering his ERA and WHIP ever so slightly from the year before. So while he didn't rank as high as usual because of the lost innings late in the year, you should still feel comfortable drafting him as your ace. Some might point to his declining average fastball velocity as a red flag, but it held pretty steady from 2012 to 2013. And considering he had a career-high strikeout rate in 2013, too much is made of it anyway. Aside from the lack of victories that comes with pitching for the Mariners, there's really no downside to drafting Hernandez, who's still in the thick of prime at age 28. He doesn't have the hype of a Yu Darvish, Max Scherzer or even Chris Sale at this stage of his career, but he's as steady as they come.
