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.

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.

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.
Jul 2 - 9:54 AM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) allowed six hits and four runs over five innings Saturday in his final rehab start for Double-A Jacksonville.

He took the loss but the Marlins have to be encouraged by the eight strikeouts he recorded. The former NL Rookie of the Year is in line to start Thursday's game against the Giants. Fernandez needs to be owned in all formats.
Jun 27 - 11:21 PM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) allowed one run over seven innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab start with High-A Jupiter.

Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Fernandez threw a total of 90 pitches and allowed four hits and one walk while striking out nine batters. He now has a 3.20 ERA and 25/4 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings over four rehab outings. The plan calls for him to make his final rehab start on June 27 with Double-A Jacksonville before making his return to the Marlins on July 2 against the Giants.
Jun 23 - 9:27 AM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) struck out 10 batters over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a rehab start with High-A Jupiter.

Fernandez allowed a second-inning homer, but he was otherwise dominant in what will likely be his third-to-last rehab appearance. The young ace is scheduled to pitch June 22 with Jupiter and on June 27 with Double-A Jacksonville. If both of those dates go smoothly, he'll make his 2015 major league debut on July 2 against the Giants. Fernandez underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May.
Jun 18 - 9:06 AM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) is on schedule to make his season debut on July 2 against the Giants.

Fernandez made the announcement during the Marlins' broadcast on Monday. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, the right-hander has allowed five runs with a 6/2 K/BB ratio over eight innings in his first two rehab outings, reportedly being clocked as high as 97 mph. He'll make his third rehab start at Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday.
Jun 15 - 7:45 PM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) will make his next minor league rehab start Wednesday at Triple-A New Orleans.

Fernandez allowed just two hits over five scoreless innings Friday in his second rehab outing with High-A Jupiter. He'll likely make two or three starts at Triple-A New Orleans before joining the Marlins around the first week of July. Fernandez, owner of a 2.25 career ERA, underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) was touched up for five runs on eight hits and a walk over three innings Saturday in his first rehab start with High-A Jupiter.

It was his first game action in over a year, so we'll cut him some slack. Plus, Fernandez was reportedly clocked as high as 97 mph, so not all was bad with the outing. The young right-hander is slated to rejoin the Marlins' rotation around July 1, which would seem to line him up for four more rehab starts.
Jun 7 - 1:17 PM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Jupiter.

Fernandez looked sharp in an extended spring training game Monday, finishing the three-inning outing with six straight strikeouts and hitting 94-97 mph on the radar gun. He'll make several rehab starts before joining the Marlins' active roster around July 1. The young ace had an outstanding 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 career major league frames before undergoing Tommy John surgery last May.
