Marlins manager Don Mattingly said that Jose Fernandez suffered a cramp in Wednesday's game against the Royals.
Disaster seemingly averted for the Marlins. Fernandez grabbed his calf and limped off the field after striking out the final batter of the seventh inning, but Mattingly said after the game that it was only a cramp. The ace fireballer should be good to go next time he's scheduled to toe the rubber barring an unforeseen setback. Fernandez worked seven scoreless innings Wednesday night versus Kansas City, striking out nine. Aug 24 - 10:10 PM

Jose Fernandez suffered a possible calf injury in Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Fernandez recorded a strikeout to end the seventh inning, but he grabbed his calf afterward before limping off the field. Adding a little insult to injury, his night probably would have been done after that inning. The Marlins should pass along word as to the exact nature of Fernandez's injury in due time.

Jose Fernandez lasted just four innings Thursday, allowing five runs on seven hits in a loss to the Reds.

A three-run home run by Ramon Cabrera -- the first of the season for the backup catcher -- did the bulk of the damage, and the four-inning start was the shortest of the season for Fernandez. The 24-year-old has been uncharacteristically mediocre over his last four starts, in fact, twice allowing five runs while going 0-3 in that stretch. Of course, it's all relative, as Fernandez is still 12-7 with a 3.05 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 204/42 K/BB ratio. He'll look for a better showing Wednesday against the Royals.
Aug 18 - 11:21 PM

Jose Fernandez will be skipped on his next turn through the Marlins' rotation.

It's part of a plan to limit his workload -- a plan that could include another skipped start in September. Tom Koehler is going to take the bump in his place Sunday at home against the White Sox. Fernandez, 24, has a 2.81 ERA and 198 strikeouts in 137 2/3 innings this season for the Wild Card-contending Marlins.
Aug 11 - 11:37 AM

Jose Fernandez spun six frames of one-run ball but had to settle for a no-decision in Monday's extra-innings loss to the Giants.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly elected to pinch-hit for Fernandez in the bottom of the sixth, which wasn't a surprise since the righty needed 106 pitches to cover six innings. The Miami bullpen then proceeded to cough up a 5-1 lead, with new acquisition Hunter Cervenka and Nick Wittgren the guiltiest parties. Fernandez now has just one win in his last five starts, although only one of those outings was a poor one. He'll face the White Sox on Sunday.
Aug 9 - 12:59 AM

Jose Fernandez allowed three runs over six innings, striking out eight, in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Fernandez gave up eight hits, tying a season high, and walked two. Amazingly, he's now lost two straight decisions for the first time since his third and fourth major league starts back in 2013. Even with the two-game skid, Fernandez is still 12-6 with a 2.87 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 192/39 K/BB ratio over 21 starts. He'll try to avoid his first-career three-game losing streak Monday when he takes on the Giants.
Aug 2 - 11:26 PM

Jose Fernandez allowed five runs over five innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

Fernandez gave up two home runs, a two-run shot to Aledmys Diaz and a solo blast to Matt Holliday, among his six hits allowed. On the plus side, he struck out nine, giving him 184 strikeouts in 125 2/3 innings this year. Fernandez is 12-5 with a 2.79 ERA and 1.05 WHIP ahead of another difficult test Tuesday against the Cubs.
Jul 28 - 9:49 PM

Jose Fernandez allowed two runs over seven innings in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Fernandez surrendered seven hits and walked two on the evening, striking out seven. The win was his 12th of the year, third-most in the NL. The 23-year-old owns a 2.54 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 175/35 K/BB ratio into Thursday's start at the Cardinals.
Jul 23 - 11:32 PM

Jose Fernandez recorded 14 strikeouts while holding the Phillies to two runs across 6 1/3 frames in Monday's 3-2 extra-innings victory.

He yielded four hits and walked a pair of batters. Fernandez was on the hook for a loss despite all the swings and misses, but the Marlins came through with two two-out runs in the ninth inning to tie the game before eventually winning in extras. Fernandez now has a whopping 168 strikeouts over 113 2/3 innings this season, boasting seven 11+ strikeout games. He'll get the Mets over the weekend.
Jul 18 - 11:34 PM

Jose Fernandez led the Marlins over the Reds 3-1 on Friday, giving up only one unearned run in seven innings.

He surrendered six hits and no walks while fanning eight batters. Fernandez is one of the most elite pitchers in baseball, now with an 11-4 record, a 2.52 ERA, an amazing 154 strikeouts and 31 walks in 107 1/3 innings.
Jul 8 - 9:50 PM

Jose Fernandez gave up eight hits and nine runs -- six earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

The Braves knocked around one of the game's best starters, naturally, because you can't predict ball. Two of those eight hits were home runs; he'd given up just five homers in his first 15 starts. All in all, aside from his eight strikeouts, it was an un-Fernandez-like start for the 23-year-old. He still owns a stellar 2.69 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 146/31 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings, and the right-hander is a good bet to have a return to form Friday against the Reds.
Jul 2 - 6:57 PM

Jose Fernandez played hero Friday by smacking a go-ahead, pinch-hit two-run double in the 12th inning as part of a 7-5 win over the Braves.

Never doubt the Marlins’ ace. Fernandez was asked to pinch-hit with two on and two out against Casey Kelly and he delivered by ripping a ball into the gap in left-center field. After doing damage with his bat on Friday, Fernandez will try to do his part on the mound Saturday.
Jul 2 - 12:13 AM

Jose Fernandez was a beast in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Cubs, striking out 13 and allowing one run on four hits over seven innings.

Fernandez hit the strike zone with 71 of his 108 pitches. He did issue three walks on the afternoon, but it was a dazzling performance on the whole. Only a Kris Bryant sacrifice fly in the third inning prevented him from seven shutout frames. The 23-year-old right-hander has now struck out double-digit batters in five of his last 10 starts. Simply put, it has been a joy to watch him this season. Fernandez will carry a 2.28 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 138/30 K/BB ratio (94 2/3 innings) into a road showdown with the hapless Braves next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 26 - 4:50 PM

Jose Fernandez was brilliant in a no-decision against the Braves on Tuesday, allowing just one hit over seven shutout innings.

Fernandez walked a pair and punched out seven in the contest. He departed with his club leading 2-0 and in line for his 10th victory, but the Marlins bullpen was unable to oblige. The right-hander sports an outstanding 2.36 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 125/27 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the Cubs at home on Sunday.
Jun 22 - 12:24 AM

Jose Fernandez will be skipped on his next turn through the Marlins' rotation.

It's part of a plan crafted before the season to limit his overall workload. Fernandez totaled just 89 1/3 innings last year between the minors and majors. He's already thrown 80 2/3 innings this year, to the tune of a 2.57 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 118/25 K/BB ratio. His next start will be June 21 against the Braves.
