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.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery before the end of the week, according to a report by the Sun-Sentinel Tuesday.

Fernandez, who has reportedly been diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow, will undergo the surgery in Los Angeles by week's end. Further details are not yet known, though the team will likely make an official announcement in the coming days, if this is confirmed.

Report: Marlins anticipate Jose Fernandez needs surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) The Marlins anticipate pitcher Jose Fernandez will need to undergo elbow surgery, which would sideline him for the remainder of the 2014 season, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Fernandez, who was placed on the disabled list Monday, is headed to Miami Monday for further testing, and the team could have an official update on his status Tuesday. If the surgery required is Tommy John surgery, he would likely miss a portion of the 2015 season while recovering.


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 placed on disabled list with sprained elbow


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was placed on the disabled list Monday with a right elbow strain, FOX Sports reports.

Fernandez started experiencing discomfort in the elbow after Friday's start against the Padres. The team is still awaiting the results of an MRI on the elbow he had Monday in Los Angeles. Fernandez is headed back to Miami to undergo further testing.


Report: Jose Fernandez expected to be placed on disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez is expected to be placed on the disabled list, FOX Sports reports. The pitcher is undergoing an MRI in Los Angeles Monday for a possible arm injury, the Miami Herald reports.

Fernandez threw just 80 pitches in his last outing, giving up six runs (five earned) in five innings Friday. Marlins manager Mike Redmond is scheduled to meet with the media at 6:30 p.m. ET Monday, when he'll likely provide details on the Fernandez injury.


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.


Jose Fernandez strikes out eight in scoreless gem Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez picked up a win in another excellent start Tuesday, giving up just two hits and two walks in eight scoreless innings while striking out eight in his team's 9-0 win over the Braves.

Fernandez (4-1) has surrendered just seven earned runs in six starts this season, with six coming in an ugly outing against the Phillies in the middle of April. He has turned in 23 innings without allowing an earned run in his last three starts combined. Fernandez owns a sparkling 1.59 ERA and 55:8 K:BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings. He'll square off against the Dodgers at home Sunday.


Marlins not ready to discuss innings limit for Jose Fernandez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) The Marlins have not yet discussed putting an innings limit on starting pitcher Jose Fernandez, who was shut down after throwing 172 2/3 innings as a rookie in 2013.

However, manager Mike Redmond said the Marlins will continue to monitor his workload.

"We showed that last year how we kind of handled him," Redmond said of Fernandez, per The Miami Herald. "[An innings limit] will be a conversation to have later in the year, end of the year. We'll see how it goes. But we've talked about possibly giving him extra days when we can throughout the year to save him and make sure he's fresh at the end of the year as well."


Jose Fernandez dominates in pitcher's duel


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014)  Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez continued his stellar start to the season Tuesday, picking up his third win in a pitcher's duel with the Braves.

Fernandez was simply overpowering for much of his start, matching a career-high with 14 strikeouts in eight innings of work. He allowed just three hits in the outing, all singles, while avoiding a walk for the third time in five starts, in a 1-0 win.

Fernandez has racked up consecutive double-digit strikeout starts for the second time in his career, and now leads the National League with 47 through five starts. He is 3-1 with a 1.99 ERA heading into his next start, Sunday against the Mets. 


Jose Fernandez strikes out 10, settles for no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez was back at the top of his game Wednesday against the Nationals, but got little help in a 6-3 loss.

Fernandez allowed just three unearned runs in seven innings of work, as he was tagged for a three-run home run in the top of the sixth inning after a pair of errors by catcher Jarros Saltalamacchia that would have ended the inning.

Besides that one mistake pitch, Fernandez was nearly flawless. He limited the Nationals to just four hits without walking a batter, while striking out a season-high 10 batters on just 97 pitches. He settled for a no-decision as the bullpen crumbled upon his exit.

Fernandez has tossed a quality start in three of his four trips to the mound, and is 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA. He has struck out 33 batters while walking just 6 in 23 2/3 innings of work heading into his next start, Tuesday against the Braves. 


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. 


Jose Fernandez shines in Opening Day win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez allowed one earned run on five hits in six innings while striking out nine and walking none in his team's 10-1 win over the Rockies Monday.

It was an excellent opener for the young phenom, who threw 73 of his 94 pitches for strikes and didn't walk a batter while earning the win. His lone mistake came against Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. He's square off against the Padres at home Saturday.


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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
