Marlins' Redmond expecting a June/July return for ace Fernandez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Tuesday starting pitcher Jose Fernandez (elbow) is throwing from 90 feet and should throw off a mound during spring training, according to MLB Network Radio.

Redmond is expecting a return around June or July for Fernandez, who is coming off Tommy John surgery.


Marlins have offered Jose Fernandez a six-year, $40 million deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) The Marlins have made a six-year, $40 million offer to starting pitcher Jose Fernandez, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, there appears to be plenty of work ahead if the Marlins have a realistic chance of signing Fernandez to a long-term deal.

The six-year deal would guarantee Fernandez, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, remains with the team through all his arbitration years and two free-agent years. If the contract calls for two team options as well, then Fernandez could be with the Marlins until he is 30 years old.

"We've had some great exchanges. I feel like we're moving in the right direction," Marlins general manager Dan Jennings said. "We'd love to have (Fernandez) for a long time … shoot, he's good."


Marlins trying to work out new deals for Yelich, Hechavarria


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Now that the Marlins have signed star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to a long-term deal, the team is still trying to sign shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and outfielder Christian Yelich to multiyear deals, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

As far as outfielder Marcell Ozuna and starting pitcher Jose Fernandez are concerned, however, it appears it could be a little more difficult to work out contract extensions, especially for Fernandez.


Marlins pessimistic about long-term deal for Jose Fernandez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) As encouraged as the Marlins are about signing slugger Giancarlo Stanton to a long-term contract, they are discouraged about doing the same with brilliant right-hander Jose Fernandez, report CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The 22-year-old Fernandez is coming off Tommy John surgery, which he underwent after a tremendous start to his career. He is 16-8 with a 2.25 ERA in 36 starts with 257 strikeouts in just 224 1/3 innings.


Report: Marlins begin talks on long-term deals for Fernandez, Yelich


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Marlins have begun talks about long-term contracts for pitcher Jose Fernandez, outfielder Christian Yelich and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, according to FOX Sports. Although, nothing is close and it is considered a long shot a deal with get done with Fernandez, who is repped by agent Scott Boras.

Before suffering the injury, Fernandez was 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in 51 2/3 innings, with 70 strikeouts.


Jose Fernandez has 'incredible' throwing session


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez indicated that his second throwing session Friday was "incredible," the Miami Herald reports.

"The ball is coming out of my hand incredible," Fernandez said after Friday's session. "I’m just excited to get a ball in my hand and let it go again ... I have never felt this good ever. The ball is coming out of my hand effortlessly."

Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery in May and threw the ball for the first time since the procedure Wednesday. Despite his comments, he's aware that he shouldn't try to push himself too hard in the early stages of his recovery.

"I’m just going with the flow, whatever the doctor says, and go step by step," he said. "But I’m thrilled to be back on the field and have a ball in my hand."

Fernandez will remain on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday throwing schedule during this portion of his recovery. He isn't expected to work off a mound until 2015.

Attorney details timeline of Jose Fernandez's injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) The process that led to Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez's elbow injury might have begun in a previous start, according to a statement made by his lawyer Friday.

Fernandez attorney, Ralph Fernandez, released a statement Friday that shed some light on the injury. Fernandez apparently suffered a thigh injury when he was hit by a line drive May 4 against the Dodgers that caused a chance in his delivery.

"This prompted a completely unanticipated change in delivery which neither the staff nor his coaches could discern," the statement reads, via the Sun-Sentinel. "Despite many exchanges on the subject in the days that followed he felt that with the Marlins regaining first place in the division he could not let his team down. Apparently the injury was worse than he believed."

The hamstring injury ultimately led to a domino effect, where Fernandez might have over compensated. The ultimately injury to his elbow came during the third inning of his finale start against the Padres, which ultimately led Fernandez to require surgery to repair a torn UCL in his right elbow.

Fernandez underwent successful surgery Friday in Los Angeles, and is expected to require 12 to 18 months of recovery before he is able to return to pitching in games. 


Report: Jose Fernandez set for Friday surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Marlins fallen ace Jose Fernandez will undergo Tommy John surgery Friday morning in Los Angeles, league sources have told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The procedure is intended to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.

Fernandez is out for the season, but Heyman is further reporting that his elbow is otherwise in excellent shape, making him a strong candidate to return to full health.


Scouting out Jose Fernandez replacements


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/14/2014) We've cried our tears and cursed our fate, but at some point, we have to move on from Jose Fernandez. The Marlins medical staff has already recommended Tommy John surgery for him. As much as it hurts, he's not coming back this season.

So then, what do you do about it? You didn't invest this much of your life in a frivolous game only to quit when the going gets tough, did you? Of course not.

First, understand you won't be getting Fernandez-like production from anybody you can reasonably acquire, but you can fill that hole at the top of your rotation with an ace -- or something close to it -- if you're willing to invest in an underachiver. Some of the best buy-low candidates at starting pitcher include Chris Sale, Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, Jordan Zimmermann, Homer Bailey and Mike Minor, whose one bad start in three might have his owner feeling uneasy. Or maybe not, but it's worth a shot. I'd also include Anibal Sanchez in that group. I have my own concerns about him given how inefficient he was before the injury, but hey, a bargain is a bargain.

Obviously, you can't expect to find anything as good on the waiver wire, but some of the high-upside types still available in less than 80 percent of leagues include Ubaldo Jimenez, Josh Beckett, Drew Pomeranz, Tyler Skaggs and Drew Smyly.


Marlins confirm torn UCL diagnosis for Jose Fernandez, recommend Tommy John surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez received a second opinion on his right elbow injury, and the worst fears were realized, as the organization confirmed he has a torn ulnar collateral ligament. 

Fernandez was examined by team physician Dr. Lee Kaplan Tuesday, who confirmed the initial diagnosis of a torn UCL. Tommy John surgery has been recommended for this week, though a firm schedule has yet to be decided on.

Fernandez suffered the injury during Friday's start against the Padres, and it will cost him the remainder of the season and at least some of next season as well. Typical recovery time for ligament replacement is between 12 and 18 months, so Fernandez will likely not return to action in the majors until at least next May, following a lengthy rehabilitation process.

Fernandez suffered the injury in his 36th major-league start, even after the Marlins exercised extreme caution in monitoring his workload. The 2013 Rookie of the Year for the National League was capped at 172 2/3 innings last season, and had topped 100 pitches in just three of his first eight starts this season.

Report: Marlins anticipate Jose Fernandez needs surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jose Fernandez's elbow injury 'worrisome'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Sources close to the Marlins organization have described the elbow injury suffered by pitcher Jose Fernandez as "worrisome," CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

Fernandez had at least one MRI on the injured elbow Monday, and he's headed to Miami for further evaluation. The diagnosis of a sprain to the elbow suggest the injury is to the ligament, and any damage to Fernandez's UCL could lead to Tommy John surgery. However, further testing is still needed to determine the extent of the injury before a course of action can be determined.

Jose Fernandez was ill during Friday shelling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez didn't look right in his uncharacteristically rough outing Friday, and he revealed one possible reason Saturday.

Fernandez was dealing with an upset stomach, as he told MLB.com, likely due to something he ate earlier in the day. He said he was feeling weak as early as the first inning, and it impacted his velocity throughout the night. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said he noticed in the bullpen before the start.

"In the bullpen, he wasn't exactly himself," catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. "He said his stomach was bothering him. That's what I kind of chalked it up as. The biggest thing was just location. He was missing his fastball, slider."

Fernandez will try to get back on track in his next outing, set for Wednesday against the Dodgers. 


Jose Fernandez serves up two homers in loss to Padres


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez endured his worst outing of the season Friday against the Padres in San Diego, suffering his second loss of the season.

Fernandez (4-2) served up a two-run home run to Jedd Gyorko in the second. In the sixth inning, Gyorko got the best of Fernandez again, launching a grand slam. Until Friday. Fernandez had never allowed more than one home run in a game, let alone a grand slam. The right-hander was shelled for six runs -- five earned -- on six hits and one walk while striking out five in five innings of a 10-1 defeat.

Fernandez is 12-0 with a 1.09 ERA in 20 career starts at home and 4-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 15 starts away from Marlins Park. He will make his next start Wednesday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Jose Fernandez solid again in no decision


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez received a no decision against the Dodgers Sunday.

Fernandez actually ran into some trouble early. After crusing through the first and second innings, he gave up a run on three straight hits in the third. A passed ball allowed another run to score, tying the game. 

With a one-run lead, Fernandez allowed Carl Crawford to tie the game with an RBI single. Giancarlo Stanton bailed him out the following inning, belting his second home run of the game and giving Fernandez the lead. The team held the one-run lead until the ninth inning. With Steve Cishek unavailable, the club turned to A.J. Ramos. Ramos couldn't hold the lead, removing Fernandez from the decision. The team would walk off in the bottom of the inning, giving Ramos the win. 

Fernandez finished the game giving up two earned runs over seven innings. He allowed five hits and four walks. Fernadez struck out 10 batters. His next start will come at San Diego.
