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.
Jun 15 - 2:14 PM

Jose Fernandez faltered in a loss to Arizona on Saturday, giving up four earned runs to the Diamondbacks on the strength of five hits while striking out eight and walking none.

This game breaks his run of six straight games allowing one run or less. His record falls to 9-3 and his ERA ticks up to 2.57 but he will remain one of the most elite pitchers in the league as long as he remains healthy. His 13.17 K/9 leads the league by a wide margin over second-place Stephen Strasburg's 11.51 K/9.
Jun 12 - 1:28 AM

Jose Fernandez was phenomenal in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Mets, striking out 14 over seven shutout innings.

Fernandez allowed four hits (just one for extra bases) and did not walk a batter. He was fantastically efficient with his pitches, too, having thrown an even 100 over seven innings. 73 of those went for strikes. The 14 strikeouts were a season-high for the fireballing right-hander and marked his fourth double-digit strikeout effort in his last six starts. For the season, Fernandez holds a stellar 2.29 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 110/25 K/BB ratio across 12 starts (74 2/3 innings). A road showdown with the Diamondbacks shows next on his schedule.
Jun 5 - 3:51 PM

Jose Fernandez held the Pirates to three singles over seven scoreless innings in a 3-1 victory on Tuesday.

The dynamic right-hander was in control from the jump. He struck out six batters and didn't walk anyone on the night and surely could have gone deeper in the game after throwing just 88 pitches through seven frames. However, the Marlins took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the inning, so manager Don Mattingly elected to turn it over to the bullpen and save some of Fernandez's bullets. Fernandez looks to have put the control issues he had been having behind him, as he's walked just two over his last three starts. He'll carry a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 96 strikeouts over 67 2/3 frames into this weekend's matchup against the Mets.
May 31 - 11:22 PM

Jose Fernandez pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out 12 in defeating the Rays on Thursday.

Fernandez isn't going toe-to-toe with Clayton Kershaw and Jake Arrieta in the ERA department, but when it comes to strikeouts, no one is matching him. He has fanned 43 batters in his last four starts and 90 batters in 60 2/3 innings for the year.
May 26 - 4:23 PM

Jose Fernandez pitched well in Saturday's win over the Nationals, striking out nine and allowing one run over six innings.

Fernandez struck out 11 Nationals in his last start. He wasn't quite able to reach those grand heights in the rematch, but nine strikeouts will do well enough. Outside of an RBI single allowed to Clint Robinson in the fourth inning, Fernandez kept the scoreboard clean. Through nine starts (53 2/3 innings), the dynamic 23-year-old right-hander holds a 3.02 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 78/24 K/BB ratio. A Thursday afternoon road date with the Rays awaits him next time he toes the rubber.
May 21 - 10:31 PM

Jose Fernandez was stellar in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Nationals, striking out 11 and allowing just one run over seven innings.

The Nationals managed just four hits against Fernandez. Their lone run against him came via an inside the park home run by Ryan Zimmerman in the fourth inning. Outside of that bit of excitement, the flamethrowing right-hander kept the scoreboard clean. This was his second-straight start with 11 strikeouts and his third double-digit strikeout performance through eight starts. Fernandez will carry a 3.21 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 69/23 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings into his next scheduled start, a home date with these same Nationals.
May 15 - 4:46 PM

Jose Fernandez recorded 11 strikeouts across seven shutout innings in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Brewers.

Fernandez was a little shaky at times, needing a couple double plays and key strikeouts to escape trouble. He walked four batters on the night but yielded just four hits. It was the first time this season Fernandez has gone beyond six innings, and he's now walked 20 over 40 2/3 frames. However, he's also struck out 58 and has picked up wins in four out of his last five outings. Fernandez takes on the Nationals on the road this weekend.
