Fernandez won the Rookie of the Year award in 2013, posting a 12-6 record with a 2.19 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 172 2/3 innings. He suffered the injury at the beginning of the 2014 season and has been recovering ever since.

When asked about his timetable on Wednesday, Fernandez refused to speculate when he'll make his season debut.

"Everything depends on [Thursday] and three days after that. That's the approach that I'm taking," Fernandez said, per MLB.com. "I don't want to go crazy and start thinking about a day because it's going to change. I don't want to disappoint myself. ... I feel fantastic. Knocking on wood right now.
