|Bruised hip not expected to sideline Felix Hernandez |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/18/14) A bruised hip won't keep Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez from making his next start, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.
Hernandez injured his hip during the fourth inning of Sunday's start. He was hit by a come-baker from Ian Kinsler. Hernandez was walking with a bit of a limp Monday, and admitted he was a "pretty sore," but said he would make his next start. Hernandez is slated to take on the Red Sox Friday. He has a 1.99 ERA over 185 1/3 innings.
|Felix Hernandez fails to pitch in the sixth inning Saturday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/16/14) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez only went five innings Saturday against the Tigers.
Hernandez had some issues with his pitch count early. He was at odds with the umpire over a couple calls. Through three innings, Hernandez had thrown 69 pitches. He finished by allowing two runs on seven hits over five innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks. The start ended Hernandez’s record of 16 straight starts with at least 7 innings pitched and two or fewer earned runs.
With the loss, Hernandez dropped to 13-4. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.
|Felix Hernandez dominates Toronto for win No. 13 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/12/14) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez dominated the Blue Jays at home on Monday, scattering one run on three hits over seven innings of work to improve to 13-3 on the season.
Hernandez struck out eight and did not issue a walk. A solo home run to Jose Bautista in the fourth was his only blemish. Of his 96 pitches, 68 were strikes. He has lowered his ERA from 1.97 to 1.95 after his gem on Monday.
Over his last five starts covering 36 innings, Hernandez has allowed five earned runs. He will look to keep rolling Saturday in Detroit.
|Felix Hernandez twirls eight one-run innings in win Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/6/14) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on four hits and one walk in eight innings and striking out eight in his tema's 4-2 victory over the Braves.
Hernandez (12-3) set a record in his previous start and extended it Tuesday, turning in his 15th straight start of at least seven innings with two runs or fewer. His only blemish came on a second-inning RBI single. Hernandez owns a 1.97 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 186:32 K:BB ratio in 173 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Blue Jays Monday.
|Mariners making adjustments to rotation plans |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/4/14) The Mariners have made a change to their rotation plans in order to have Felix Hernandez, Chris Young and Hisashi Iwakuma pitch in a series against Toronto next week, according to The News Tribune.
The rotation this week will feature Hernandez and Young in a two-game series against Atlanta, which starts Tuesday. It will then be Roenis Elias, Iwakuma and James Paxton to open a series against the White Sox, which starts Thursday.
Seattle is pushing back Hernandez to Monday and that leaves an open date Sunday. The News Tribune suggests Taijuan Walker and Erasmo Ramirez are the top two candidates to be recalled to make that start. Walker is slated to pitch Monday for Triple-A Tacoma.
|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.
