Marlins SP Jose Fernandez improves to 4-0 with win on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Marlins phenom Jose Fernandez was solid on Tuesday against the Nationals. The young right-hander went six innings, allowing one run on four hits. He displayed unusual poor command as he walked four batters, but he also struck out five in the 4-1 victory.

Fernandez (4-0) allowed an early run in the second inning, but was able to avoid any further damage despite the high baserunner count. The Marlins were able to rally back for four unanswered runs, leading Fernandez to the win.

He lowered his ERA to 2.53 with the strong outing. He hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his five starts since returning from Tommy John surgery.


Marlins SP Jose Fernandez good enough to beat Diamondbacks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2015) Marlins super lefty Jose Fernandez doubled his walk total for the season Wednesday at Arizona.

That's about the only negative that came out of his performance. And even that isn't so bad when one considers he arrived on the mound with just one walk allowed in 19 innings.

He left with three in 26 innings after going seven, surrendering three runs on five hits with two walks and 11 strikeouts.

Fernandez has won three of his four starts since returning from Tommy John surgery and remains unbeaten. He did falter a bit against the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning by yielding RBI hits to Yasmany Tomas and Jake Lamb. He gave up a double to Ender Inciarte that chopped his lead to 5-3 in the seventh, but fanned Chris Owings to end the threat.

His ERA now stands at 2.77. He has 32 strikeouts in 26 innings of work.


Marlins SP Jose Fernandez gives up two runs in no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) Marlins ace Jose Fernandez took a no-decision in his start against the Phillies on Friday. Fernandez delivered another strong outing for the Marlins, striking out six while allowing two runs on four hits over six innings of work. 

A two-run double by Ryan Howard in the sixth innings was the only blemish on Fernandez's night. But that gave the Phillies a 2-1 lead, and they would go on to win 6-3.

Fernandez has not given up more than three runs in each of his first three starts since returning from Tommy John surgery. 


Marlins announce rotation to start second half of 2015


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/15/2015) The Marlins have set their rotation to open the second half of the season. Jose Fernandez will make the first start in Philadelphia on Friday. 

Friday will be Fernandez's thid start of the year after returning from Tommy John surgery. He was absolutely dominant in his most recent outing, striking out nine over seven scoreless innings against the Reds on July 9.

He'll be followed by fellow right-handers Tom Koelher and Dan Haren to wrap up the weekend series against the Phillies. 


Marlins SP Jose Fernandez dominant vs. Reds on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez was excellent in his start against the Reds on Thursday. Fernandez allowed six hits in seven shutout innings, striking out nine batters while not issuing a walk. 

This was Fernandez's second start since returning from Tommy John surgery, and he looked to be in mid-season form in this one. He didn't allow a runner to reach third base, and was pretty much in complete control from the start, needing just 94 pitches to get through the seventh inning in the 2-0 victory.

"He was very good," Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "We've seen him before and know he's good. Today, he didn't make any fatal mistakes by walking people, falling behind or giving up the big hit."

The phenom hurler has not lost in 22 consecutive home starts to begin his career, which is a Major League record, according to Elias Sports.

"I guess he loves Miami, that's all I can say," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "It's fun to watch him here. There is a little bit of an aura when he pitches at home. I think the fans feel it as well.

Fernandez (2-0) heads into the All-Star break with a 2.08 ERA over his two outings this year. 


Marlins shift Tom Koehler, Jose Fernandez starts next week


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) An off-day will alter the Marlins rotation next week, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Marlins' Jose Fernandez solid in season debut, launches home run


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had a solid outing in his season-debut during Thursday afternoon's 5-4 win over the Giants. 

But it wasn't his pitching that stole the show at Marlins Park. In the fifth inning, Fernandez crushed a deep shot out of the ballpark for a solo homer. The Marlins fans in attendance were ecstatic at Fernandez's feat at the plate. 

On the mound, Fernandez allowed three earned runs on seven hits in six innings pitched. Fernandez didn't allow any walks and struck out six batters. Fernandez was activated from the 60-day disabled list on Thursday after a long recovery from Tommy John surgery. 

"A big day, obviously, with Jose coming back," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said, per MLB.com. "A welcome addition after all the work and rehab that he did for this past 14 months. To have him come back, and the energy that he brings inside our clubhouse and when he's on the mound, certainly, inside the ballpark as well."

His season begins with a 4.50 ERA.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

“I know I have to stay calm,” Fernandez said on Wednesday. “But probably it’s going to be really hard. I don’t think it’s going to happen. I’ve got to control my emotions as best I can, but there’s going to be emotions.”

Fernandez's last game was on May 9, 2014, when he injured his elbow. It's unknown if Fernandez will be on a pitch count. 

In his career, Fernandez is 12-0 with a 1.09 ERA at Marlins Park, which is where he'll start in his return against the Giants. 

“Tomorrow should be a fun day for everybody,” Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. “For South Florida, for this organization, for this team, but most importantly, for Jose. He’s worked extremely hard to get back to this place, this opportunity, and I think it’s great for baseball. He’s truly one of the faces of the game with his energy.”

Marlins SP Jose Fernandez set for rehab start at Triple-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Marlins shelved super starter Jose Fernandez ascended so rapidly through the organization that he skipped Triple-A en route to Miami. But now he will get his chance to pitch for New Orleans, this time in a Wednesday rehab start.

Dan Jennings has stated that Fernandez, who has rebounded quickly from Tommy John surgery, is slated to throw about 75 pitches for the Zephyrs. He is coming off a fine five-inning stint for Class A Jupiter in which he tossed five shutout innings.

"I think that was a mental hurdle for him to crawl over," Jennings told the Miami Herald.

Fernandez could rejoin the Marlins as early as late this month.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

He allowed two hits (both singles) and struck out four while walking one. He threw 65 pitches, with 41 going for strikes, as he faced just one over the minimum.

"I think the big part is being healthy," Fernandez said, per FoxSports.com. "I came out healthy, feel healthy. There's nothing else I can ask for. Same thing, a little different result. Obviously I changed a couple of things that I was working on different than the last game. I'm pretty happy because I feel happy, and that's the only thing I can ask for."

Fernandez is scheduled to make his next rehab start on Wednesday, and could make two more starts after that before possibly making his season-debut on July 2 against the Giants, FoxSports.com reports.

"I need these starts," Fernandez said. "It's not like I'm going to go out there and pitch in the big leagues today. I need these starts. They're really good, very nice to work on pitches and locations and different counts. You've got to give a lot of credit to those kids, man. They swing the bat really well.
