Felix Hernandez was uncharacteristically mediocre against the Red Sox, allowing three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision on Friday.
Hernandez was coming off a minor hip injury, so it's unclear what role that played in the start. King Felix allowed only five hits on the night, but two were doubles and another was a three-run home run by Yoenis Cespedes. The no-decision keeps his record at 13-6, and he owns a 2.07 ERA through 27 starts. We don't expect a repeat of Friday's performance when he takes on the Rangers on Wednesday. Aug 22 - 10:55 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that Felix Hernandez (hip) is "fine" and will be ready to make his next scheduled start on Friday in Boston.

Hernandez made an early exit from his last outing after being hit in the hip by a comebacker. There wasn't much doubt that he'd be ready to go for his next start, but it's good to have confirmation. "He's fine," McClendon said. "He may push [his bullpen] back. I'm not sure. Sometimes he pushes it back, sometimes he doesn't even throw. But he's fine."

Felix Hernandez pitched five innings and allowed seven hits and two runs to the Tigers before exiting Saturday's game.

Hernandez was seen limping a little after being hit in the hip by a grounder in the fourth inning. He came back out to pitch the fifth and completed that frame before being pulled from the game. He had won nine starts in a row against the Tigers prior to losing to David Price on Saturday. The Tigers managed to work up Hernandez's pitch count, as he'd already thrown over eighty pitches by the time he was out of the fourth inning. Hernandez allowed an RBI groundout in the third and a Nick Castellanos solo home run in the fourth. Consider the Cy Young-contender (1.99 ERA, 0.87 WHIP) to be day-to-day for the time being.

Felix Hernandez fired seven innings of one-run ball, scattering three hits, on Monday against the Blue Jays.

The poor, poor Blue Jays. King Felix was the third straight Cy Young winner Toronto had faced after seeing Detroit's David Price and Max Scherzer over the weekend (to say nothing of Sunday's 19-inning marathon). Somehow, the Jays managed to beat both Tigers' aces, but their luck ran out tonight. Hernandez vanquished some demons, as Toronto is one of the few teams in the game he had struggled against in his career, entering 4-5 with a 4.95 ERA, including a 10.80 ERA in three outings at Safeco Field. Now 13-3 with a 1.95 ERA, the Cy Young frontrunner takes on the Tigers this weekend.
Aug 12 - 1:06 AM

Felix Hernandez pitched eight innings of one-run ball on Tuesday.

Hernandez was the picture of efficiency against the Braves. He threw 73 of his 97 pitches for strikes, allowed just four hits, walked just one and gave up only a second inning Chris Johnson RBI single. It's the kind of performance that has become commonplace for Hernandez. The win moved him 12-3, to go with a sterling 1.97 ERA. Hernandez is setting career highs in WHIP (0.88) and BAA (.195).
Aug 6 - 12:49 AM

Felix Hernandez pitched well, allowing only two runs over seven innings, but took his third loss of the season on Wednesday against the Indians.

The spotlight normally reserved for King Felix was taken by Indians right-hander Corey Kluber, who pitched a shutout. Hernandez was no slouch himself, though, allowing just four hits and two walks while striking out five. Yan Gomes struck the only big blow of the game, driving in a pair of runs with a double in the fifth. Other than that, Hernandez was strong as usual. He'll bring a 2.01 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP, and a 178/31 K/BB ratio into next week's start at home against the Braves.
Jul 30 - 9:24 PM

Felix Hernandez wasn't involved in the decision after allowing one run over seven innings and striking out 10 Friday against the Orioles.

This makes 13 starts in a row of seven or more innings and no more than two runs allowed. The Mariners have won 10 of those outings, with seven of the wins getting credited to Hernandez. Tonight, though, they lost 2-1 in 10 innings.
Jul 26 - 1:44 AM

Felix Hernandez will make his next start on Friday against the Orioles.

Hernandez was previously in line to start Thursday, so the Mariners will move him back a day. Hisashi Iwakuma will now start Thursday.
Jul 21 - 5:52 PM

Felix Hernandez allowed just an unearned run and two hits over seven innings while striking out nine Angels on Saturday.

Hernandez wasn't involved in the decision in the matchup with Garrett Richards, and both remained 11-2 on the year. Hernandez has now gone 12 straight starts with at least seven innings pitched and no more than two runs allowed.
Jul 20 - 1:27 AM

Felix Hernandez struck out two over a scoreless first inning in Tuesday’s All-Star game.

Andrew McCutchen beat out an infield single to lead off the game and then went to second base on a wild pitch. King Felix rebounded after that, though, getting Yasiel Puig and Troy Tulowitzki to go down swinging before inducing a groundout by Paul Goldschmidt. Jon Lester followed Hernandez and allowed two runs and Chris Sale gave up a run in the fourth, which knotted up the game, but the AL held the NL in check the rest of the way to earn home field advantage in the World Series.
Jul 15 - 11:49 PM

Felix Hernandez will start for the American League in Tuesday's All-Star Game at Target Field.

American League skipper John Farrell made the announcement Monday in Minneapolis. "King Felix" earned his 11th victory of the season last Friday against the A's and boasts a 2.12 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and 154/25 K/BB ratio through 144 1/3 total innings this year. He'll be opposed on the National League side by Adam Wainwright.
Jul 14 - 1:04 PM

Felix Hernandez overcame two first-inning runs Friday to earn his 11th win as the Mariners edged the A's 3-2.

Hernandez ended up going eight innings and striking out nine in the win. It's the 11th straight start in which he's lasted at least seven innings and allowed no more than two runs. He's 11-2 with a 2.12 ERA and 154 strikeouts in 144 1/3 innings this season. He's fanned at least nine in nine of his 20 starts.
Jul 12 - 1:02 AM

Felix Hernandez was outstanding yet again on Saturday, but was saddled with a no-decision against the White Sox due to a lack of run support.

King Felix surrendered just two runs on three hits over his eight innings of work, striking out eight and walking one. It was a scoreless battle until the eighth inning where Dayan Viciedo delivered an RBI double and Tyler Flowers added a sacrifice fly to complete the damage. He’s in the midst of yet another outstanding season, registering a 2.11 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 145/23 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. He’ll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Twins at home on Thursday.
Jul 5 - 6:57 PM

Felix Hernandez held the White Sox to two runs in eight innings Saturday in a Mariners victory.

The M's didn't win the game until the 14th inning, so Felix was left with a no-decision. He struck out eight batters, walked only one batter, and the White Sox managed just three hits against him. Hernandez is again putting together a Cy Young Award-worthy campaign.
Jul 5 - 6:57 PM

Felix Hernandez was masterful in Sunday's victory over the Indians, surrendering just one hit and three walks over eight shutout innings.

King Felix punched out nine on the brilliant afternoon. Lonnie Chisenhall's single in the fifth inning was the only blemish on what could've been a memorable afternoon. With the victory, he improves to 10-2 on the season while compiling an impressive 2.10 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 137/22 K/BB ratio over 128 1/3 innings. He'll head in search of his 11th victory when he squares off against the White Sox in Chicago on Saturday.
