Jose Fernandez slogs through worst career start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez struggled through arguably the worst start of his career Friday against the Phillies, in a 6-3 loss, his first of the season.

Fernandez completed just four innings, just the fourth time in his career he has failed to complete five innings. He had trouble finding the strike zone all night, matching a career high with four walks, including three in the third inning, one of which borught in the go-ahead run.

Fernandez got into the fifth inning, but allowed four straight hits before being pulled. He was charged with six runs on eight hits and four walks in four innings, though he also struck out six, including each batter in the third and fourth innings.

Fernandez's ERA rose to 3.78 with this start, after he had allowed just one run in his first two starts. He will try to get back on track in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the Nationals. 


Jose Fernandez blows Padres away


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez twirled another gem Saturday, as he won his second straight start to begin the season, 5-0 over the Padres.

Fernandez nearly matched his career high in pitches, as he reached 108 in 6 2/3 innings. He threw 69 of those for strikes, while striking out eight and walking just two in his six-plus scoreless innings.

Fernandez allowed just three singles in the outing, and has now allowed just one extra-base hit in 12 2/3 innings of work. He is now 2-0 with 17 strikeouts and just two walks in 12 2/3 innings to open the season, while allowing just one run. His next start is set for Friday in Philadelphia.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jose Fernandez not sharp in last spring start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez did not have his sharpest spring start Tuesday against the Cardinals. The right-handed pitcher allowed five runs (four earned) on nine hits and two walks, while striking out three in 4 2/3 innings.

"I tried my best to throw strikes, but obviously it didn’t happen," Fernandez said, per the Sun-Sentinel. "Hopefully six days from now it’s going to be better."

Fernandez struggled from the start Tuesday, as Daniel Descalso had an RBI triple, Matt Holliday had an RBI groundout and Peter Bourjos had an RBI single in the first inning. Fernandez would settle down until allowing two more runs in the fourth inning on singles to Pete Kozma and Kolten Wong. Fernandez was in line for the loss until Miami rallied for a 6-5 win.

"You could tell he was having to really grind it out," manager Mike Redmond said. "Maybe he wasn’t quite as sharp with his pitches…When you go against those good lineups, you try to limit the damage. Overall, he got his pitches in."

Fernandez saw his ERA jump from 2.30 to 3.54. In fact, it has gone from 0.93 to 3.54 in his last two starts. He has managed 19 strikeouts in 20 1/3 innings.

Fernandez is willing to assume a leadership role after several of the pitchers he looked up to over the last few camps have moved on. "Last year, I was looking up to Ricky [Nolasco]," Fernandez told MLB.com. "When [Josh Johnson] was here, I was looking to see what he was doing. If I’ve got to be a leader, I’ve got no problem with it. It’s a little hard, because I’m the youngest. And I’m always joking around. I leave that to Salty, Jeff and those old guys. I’m the fun guy. Goofy."

Fernandez is lined up to start opening day for the Marlins, though no official announcement has been mande.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I try not to hear it," Fernandez said, per MLB.com. "A lot of guys have said something about it. I don't know, but, I'm feeling really, really good.

"Hopefully this year is going to be a lot better than last year. I've got some goals. When the time is right, I will tell you guys. They are written down. But I'm doing pretty good right now."

Manager Mike Redmond also isn't worried about Fernandez falling prey to a regression in 2014.

"He's so talented and has such good stuff," Redmond said. "I have no worries that he is going to make those adjustments as well. I like his chances. He's got tremendous stuff. We've just got to get him out there, keep him going, and get him ready for the season."

Marlins place no limit on Jose Fernandez's last start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2013) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez will make his last start of the season Wednesday against the Braves, and although the rookie is 4 1/3 innings away from the 170-inning limit the team set for him this season, manager Mike Redmond isn't placing a limit on the work Fernandez will get in the game, MLB.com reports.

"Jose is going to get a chance to pitch, and we're going to let him go out and try to win the ballgame," Redmond told MLB.com. "I talked to him about it. Just like we did [Friday], we're going to let him go and try to win the ballgame. [Pitching coach] Chuck [Hernandez] and I have been very consistent on how we approached him and how we've used him this year. We've tried to really take care of him and watch his innings, and watch his pitches. We'll do that again this next start. I think it's good that he doesn't have to go out there and think he's got only four innings, five innings or whatever it is."

Fernandez has shined in his rookie season, going 11-6 with a 2.23 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 182:55 K:BB ratio in 165 2/3 innings over 27 starts. His hit-per-nine-innings rate of 5.8 is the lowest in the majors.

Since losing his last decision on July 7, Fernandez has surrendered just eight earned runs in eight starts, winning five of them. He takes a 10-5 record, 2.30 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 165:51 K:BB ratio into Friday's scheduled start against the Braves.


Marlins mulling options with Jose Fernandez's shutdown


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Though it is not a secret that Marlins rookie pitcher Jose Fernandez is facing an innings limit, it is not yet clear when the Marlins plan to shut him down. According to MLB.com, the team is looking for potential contingency plans to keep the 20-year-old active later in September without going past his 170-innings limit.

"We're working on where we could push him back a few days, and see if we can extend him," manager Mike Redmond said. "We're trying to figure out how we can extend him as deep into September as we can."

Fernandez has taken to the majors so well in his first season that the team is struggling with pulling the plug on him -- and possibly ending his Rookie of the Year campaign early. 

"This is not an easy decision. He's pitched so well," Redmond said. "I think we all hoped he would have this much success, but I don't think any of us thought that he would pitch as deep into games as he has, which is great. Believe me, that is pressure on us that's good pressure."

There is also a possibility that 170 innings will not be a full-stop for him this season. Fernandez is at 145 2/3 after Monday's win over the Dodgers, with a 9-5 record and 2.41 ERA, including a major-league leading 1.64 ERA since June 1. 

"We've got to figure it out exactly," Redmond said. "Is it 172, is it 170? Everybody knows where this kid is at. We've got to figure out where he is, and see how he pitches from game to game."

Fernandez is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Rockies, and it is possible he will be skipped at some point in the rotation. 


Jose Fernandez on an innings limit


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez will be shut down at some point in September, according to MLB Network Radio.

Manager Mike Redmond said the team determined an innings limit during spring training, and will try and let Fernandez pitch as deep into September as possible. Once Fernandez reaches that limit, the team will shut him down. Redmond did not reveal any specifics regarding the innings limit. 

Fernandez has a 2.41 ERA in 145 2/3 innings. 


Jose Fernandez excellent in victory


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Marlins phenom Jose Fernandez was sharp once again in victory over the Dodgers. Fernandez improved his record to 9-5 on the year.

Fernandez gave up two runs, but only one was earnd, as he allowed four hits and three walks over six innings in a quality start. He struck out eight batters and his ERA is now at 2.41. He threw 109 pitches on the night.

Fernandez has won his last four decisions and has been nothing short of outstanding this season for the Marlins. He makes his next start Saturday against Colorado.


Jose Fernandez keeps on rolling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez twirled yet another strong start Tuesday against the Royals, but he had to settle for a no-decision in a 1-0, extra-innings win.

Fernandez limited the Royals to just four base runners over seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits and a walk. Two of those hitters reached base in the seventh, but he was able to get out of the frame without any runs coming across to score.

Fernandez struck out six batters while throwing 65 of 94 pitches for strikes. He had to take a no-decision for the second outing in a row, as the Marlins' offense failed to get anything going. He remains 8-5 with a 2.45 ERA on the season.

Despite being just a rookie, Fernandez has gotten stronger as the season has gone on, allowing more than two runs in just one of 13 starts since June 1. He has a 1.54 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break, and he will try to keep that strong performance up in his next start, set for Monday against the Dodgers. 

Fernandez is going to be shut down at some point before the season ends, as the team tries to limit his innings total, but no timeline has been set. Manager Mike Redmond told MLB.com Tuesday he thinks early September is the general time frame to shut Fernandez down, and he surpassed his professional high in innings pitched Tuesday, leaving him at 139 2/3 for the season. 


Marlins' bullpen cost Jose Fernandez victory


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez didn't have his best stuff Thursday at Pittsburgh, but he was still good enough to win. Unfortunately, the Marlins' bullpen couldn't hold a two-run lead, costing Fernandez a victory.

Fernandez was done after five innings as he ran his pitch count to 101 (61 strikes). He left with a 4-2 lead, however, after allowing two runs on five hits and four walks. Fernandez, who struck out five, had tossed four scoreless innings before Neil Walker and Pedro Alvarez produced RBI singles in the fifth.

Fernandez has allowed two or fewer earned runs in five straight starts. He had struck out 13 or more batters in his previous two starts heading into Thursday.

The rookie right-hander is slated to get back to work Tuesday at Kansas City.
