Marlins manager Dan Jennings said Jose Fernandez (biceps) had a "wow" bullpen session Thursday.
Good news for Fernandez, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a right biceps strain. There's no sense of urgency to rush him back into action, but the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Marlins' rotation by mid-September. Aug 27 - 4:31 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Marlins are hoping to get Jose Fernandez (biceps) back in mid-September.

Fernandez has yet to resume throwing after landing on the disabled list on August 8 with a right bicep strain. The Marlins don't have anything to play for at this point and will obviously proceed cautiously with their ace, but there's still hope that he'll make it back for a few late-season outings.

Jose Fernandez (biceps) said Tuesday that he's confident he'll pitch again this season.

Fernandez was diagnosed over the weekend with a strained right biceps muscle. It's not an overly serious injury, but one could understand the out-of-contention Marlins playing it as safe as possible down the stretch with their 23-year-old ace. Fernandez just returned last month from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.
Aug 11 - 4:31 PM

Marlins placed RHP Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 8, with a right bicep strain.

Fernandez complained of shoulder soreness after Friday's start against the Braves. It turned out to be a bicep strain. There's no current timetable for his return and the Marlins will almost certainly be careful with their handling of the dynamic right-hander's rehab. He had been pitching to a 2.30 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 53/10 K/BB ratio across 43 innings in his return from Tommy John elbow surgery.

Jose Fernandez is expected to be placed on the disabled list after being diagnosed with a right bicep strain.

Well, that's a bummer. Fernandez complained of shoulder soreness after Friday's outing, but it turns out the source of his injury is more in the bicep. Regardless, he's out indefinitely and the Marlins will no doubt proceed extra cautiously with him given that they're well out of the playoff hunt.
Aug 9 - 2:25 PM

Jose Fernandez has been sent back to Miami to see a doctor after complaining of soreness in his right shoulder.

That's not good. Fernandez looked pretty sharp on Friday night against the Braves, racking up six strikeouts over five innings, but he did leave with a pitch count of just 76. The ace right-hander returned in early July from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. It's not clear how long he's going to be out this time.
Aug 8 - 5:26 PM

Jose Fernandez racked up six strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Friday.

Fernandez allowed two runs on four hits and a walk on the night. He was removed after throwing just 76 pitches after having to labor through a difficult fifth inning, but the Marlins noted that there is nothing wrong with him physically. He has been very impressive in his return from Tommy John surgery, compiling a 2.30 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 53/10 K/BB ratio over 43 innings. He'll do battle against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Friday.
Aug 7 - 11:03 PM

Jose Fernandez was almost unhittable in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres, striking out 10 and throwing six innings of shutout baseball.

Fernandez allowed just four hits. The only one that went for extra bases was an Alexi Amarista triple. Amarista would not come around to score, as Fernandez was having none of that. The 10 strikeouts were one off of his season high, which he set two starts ago against the Diamondbacks. Despite Sunday's brilliance, he came away with a no-decision, as the Marlins wouldn't seal the win until the bottom of the ninth inning. Since returning from the disabled list in early July, Fernandez is 5-0 with a 2.13 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 47/9 K/BB ratio across 38 innings. He'll take to the road against the Braves as he tries to keep this run going.
Aug 2 - 4:29 PM

Jose Fernandez improved to 4-0 after tossing six innings of one-run ball to beat the Nationals on Tuesday.

The only run came on a Wilson Ramos sacrifice fly in the second inning. Fernandez worked around four hits and four walks with five strikeouts. It was certainly the least dominant of Fernandez's first five starts of the season. He boasts a terrific 2.53 ERA with a 1.03 WHIP and a 37/7 K/BB ratio over 32 innings. Fernandez will go up against the Padres at home next in an attempt to remain undefeated.
Jul 28 - 10:20 PM

Jose Fernandez allowed three runs and struck out 11 in seven frames as the Marlins bested the Diamondbacks 5-3 on Wednesday.

In his fourth start back from Tommy John surgery, the 22-year-old Fernandez set a season-high in strikeouts. After he was pulled at 70 pitches Friday versus Philadelphia, we were encouraged to see Fernandez allowed to fire 96 pitches this evening. Fernandez, who added an RBI double in his own support, will take a 3-0 record, 2.77 ERA and stunning 32/3 K/BB ratio (26 innings) into a date in Washington next week.
Jul 23 - 1:03 AM

Jose Fernandez was handed a no-decision after giving up two runs over six innings Friday against the Phillies.

Fernandez was impressive yet again, striking out six and walking one while throwing 48 out of 70 pitches for strikes. The Phillies scratched across two runs in the top of the sixth and Fernandez was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the middle of a rally in the next half-inning. The 22-year-old has looked great since returning from Tommy John surgery, posting a 2.37 ERA with a stingy 21/1 K/BB ratio over 19 innings. He'll get the Diamondbacks next week on the road.
Jul 17 - 9:39 PM

Jose Fernandez will start Miami's first game back from the All-Star break in Philadelphia.

Fernandez has been outstanding across two starts (three runs total, no walks) since returning from Tommy John surgery. We're bullish on his prospects and see a top-10 fantasy starter going forward.
Jul 11 - 1:32 PM

Jose Fernandez struck out nine over seven innings as the Marlins topped the Reds 2-0 on Thursday.

It's not so shocking to see Fernandez come back with such impressive stuff. What is pretty amazing though is that he's gone his first 13 innings without walking a single batter, especially considering that command is usually the last thing to come back after Tommy John surgery. It looks like he'll be a top-10 fantasy starter from here on in.
Jul 9 - 9:53 PM

Jose Fernandez provided a quality start in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Giants, hurling six innings of three-run ball.

Fernandez was making his first start in 13 months, having been sidelined by Tommy John surgery in May of 2014. It went very well. He struck out six without walking a batter and added a home run to boot. Facing off with Matt Cain to lead off the frame, he launched a solo bomb to help his own cause. It was his second career homer. For his career (pitching division), he holds a 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 innings. Perhaps the best sign for Fernandez here is that he did not walk a Giant in the contest. Control tends to be an issue for pitchers coming off of long lay-offs, as they work to refine their location. Up next for the 22-year-old right-hander, a trip to Fenway to face off with the Red Sox.
Jul 2 - 2:59 PM

Marlins activated RHP Jose Fernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

Fernandez is ready to rock again, 13 months after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 22-year-old right-hander showed promising signs on his five-start minor league rehab assignment and needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues for what should be an exciting and productive second half of the 2015 season. Fernandez owns a remarkable 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 career major league innings. He's starting Thursday at home against the Giants.
