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.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) is scheduled to begin pitching in extended spring training games Monday.

Fernandez has experienced zero complications in his return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and is trending toward a July 1 debut. The young ace will probably pitch in three or four games at extended spring training before embarking on a minor league rehab assignment. He owns a ridiculous 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 career major league frames.
May 26 - 5:02 PM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) is aiming to pitch in extended spring training games around the second week of June.

Fernandez threw approximately 30 pitches in his latest live batting practice session on Wednesday. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, the young ace is on track to rejoin the Marlins' rotation around July 1.
May 22 - 10:34 AM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) faced live hitters Thursday for the first time since his Tommy John surgery.

Fernandez only tossed 15 pitches, but he used his entire arsenal. "It was competing and it felt really fantastic," the ace right-hander told MLB.com's Joe Frisaro after his short workout. "Command of the ball was [good], except for one or two pitches that were up in the zone a little bit." He is on track to join the Marlins' starting rotation in mid-to-late June.
Apr 30 - 3:06 PM

Jose Fernandez is scheduled to throw 15 pitches against live hitters on Thursday.

It's the next big step for the young right-hander in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He's not expected to return to the Marlins rotation until mid-June.
Apr 25 - 1:21 PM

Marlins transferred RHP Jose Fernandez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move cleared a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Matt Tracy. Fernandez will be out until June while working his way back from Tommy John surgery.
Apr 19 - 9:26 AM

Marlins placed RHP Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a right elbow injury.

Fernandez, of course, is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected back until sometime in June. The right-hander has been throwing off a mound for over a month but has yet to face hitters since going under the knife.
Apr 5 - 1:44 PM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) isn't expected to begin facing live hitters until late April.

"There are X amount of bullpens to throw and I think he has like eight left [before he faces live hitters]," Marlins pitching coach Chuck Hernandez said March 27. "We're doing two a week, so that's a month." Fernandez isn't due to return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery until mid-to-late June and even the best pitchers experience early struggles coming off that procedure. He's no more than a late-round stash for the 2015 fantasy baseball season despite his dominant career numbers.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) threw his entire arsenal Monday in a 25-pitch bullpen session.

Fernandez isn't throwing those pitches at full effort yet, but he's getting there. The 22-year-old right-hander has not experienced any setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and is currently on track to join the Marlins' rotation around mid-to-late June. He boasts a 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 10.3 K/9 in 224 1/3 career major league innings.
