Hernandez landed on the disabled list earlier this month with bursitis in his right shoulder. He's currently on anti-inflammatories and has yet to resume throwing. King Felix has expressed confidence that he'll be back sooner than the initial 3-4 week timetable, but he's going to have to make rapid progress for that to come to fruition. Aug 14 - 11:16 AM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) expects to make it back sooner than his 3-4 week timetable.

Doctors are still saying it will be 3-4 weeks but Hernandez is optimistic he'll be back sooner. King Felix also said his latest bout with shoulder bursitis isn't as bad as the one that sidelined him earlier this year. Injuries have limited the former Cy Young winner to just 13 starts this season.
Aug 10 - 7:32 PM

The Mariners expect Felix Hernandez to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks after he was diagnosed with right shoulder bursitis.

The M's called the injury biceps tendinitis over the weekend when King Felix was placed on the disabled list, but now they're saying it's the same ailment he dealt with earlier this season. Hernandez missed six weeks of action the first time, but evidently the club is thinking (hoping?) isn't not as serious this time.
Aug 8 - 2:08 PM

Mariners placed RHP Felix Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 2, with right biceps tendinitis.

Marco Gonzales was recalled from Triple-A and will start in his place against the Royals on Saturday. The Mariners are hopeful that it's only a minor issue for Hernandez and that he'll be able to return after a minimum stint on the disabled list.
Aug 5 - 1:20 PM

Felix Hernandez yielded four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

Hernandez walked three batters and gave up six hits, including home runs to Rougned Odor and Carlos Gomez, but he left with the game tied at 4-4 and the Mariners rallied for a late victory in Arlington, Texas. Hernandez has a 4.28 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 69/21 K/BB ratio over 73 2/3 innings (13 starts) this season. He'll get the Royals on the road next.
Jul 31 - 11:33 PM

Felix Hernandez allowed four earned runs, four hits and two walks with four strikeouts across 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Red Sox.

King Felix has had a problem with Sox since his return from the 10-day disabled list. He pitched just five innings in Chicago on July 15, and 5 2/3 against Boston on Tuesday. He has lasted at least six innings in his other five outings against all other teams since coming off the DL. Hernandez will look to go deeper into the game in his next scheduled start Monday in Texas.
Jul 26 - 5:13 AM

Felix Hernandez struck out nine while allowing one run on three hits over seven innings in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Yankees.

Hernandez was brilliant in this one -- and that was with a somewhat questionable strike zone working against him. Only a Brett Gardner solo homer in the sixth preventing him from seven shutout frames. On the whole, this was King Felix's best start of the season. He will carry a 3.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP (11 starts) into a home showdown with the Red Sox next time out as he looks to build off of Thursday's gem.
Jul 21 - 1:37 AM

Felix Hernandez allowed three runs -- one earned -- in five innings to beat the White Sox 4-3 on Saturday.

He struck out five batters without issuing a base-on-balls. He gave up six hits. Three of those went for extra bases, including a solo homer by Melky Cabrera. Hernandez improves to 5-3 with a 4.20 ERA and shaky 1.44 WHIP. He spent a good chunk of the first half on the disabled list and has pitched only 55 2/3 innings so far this year.
Jul 15 - 11:47 PM

Felix Hernandez was in vintage form on Sunday, scattering just two hits over six scoreless innings in a victory over the Athletics.

Hernandez racked up eight strikeouts on the day while issuing two free passes. It was a remarkable rebound from his last outing where he was pounded in a loss to the Royals. He finishes the first half with a 4.44 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 46/14 K/BB ratio through 50 2/3 innings in his nine starts. Hopefully he can carry this fine effort over into the second half of the year.
Jul 9 - 7:42 PM

Felix Hernandez was touched up for six runs – five earned – over six innings of work in Tuesday’s loss to the Royals.

Things got off to an inauspicious start when Whit Merrifield led off the game with a home run. Hernandez also served up a longball to Mike Moustakas, and it was more damaging since it was a two-run blast. King Felix walked four batters on the day, which marks the second straight start that he set a new season-high in walks (he walked three his last time out). Hernandez will try to bounce back in his final start of the first half on Sunday at home versus the A’s.
Jul 4 - 9:49 PM

Felix Hernandez allowed three runs on five hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Hernandez was not at his sharpest in this one, as he walked three and threw just 66 of 98 pitches for strikes. All three runs on his line scored in the third inning, when Ty Kelly burned him for a two-run homer and Odubel Herrera picked up an RBI on a ground out. In two starts since returning from the disabled list, King Felix has surrendered six runs on 13 hits in 12 innings. He will look to continue to shake off the rust in a home start against the Royals next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 28 - 7:57 PM

In his return from the disabled list, Felix Hernandez surrendered three runs and eight hits in six innings Friday against the Astros.

Hernandez looked fine tonight and got himself a win in a 13-3 game, but this is about what should be expected from him these days. He gave up two homers tonight, bringing his total allowed to eight in just 32 2/3 innings. Until he puts a run of strong outings together, he should be treated as a spot starter in mixed leagues.
Jun 24 - 2:00 AM

Mariners activated RHP Felix Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list.

Hernandez will rejoin the Mariners' rotation on Friday against the Astros. King Felix pitched well in his last two rehab outings, but he held a 4.73 ERA prior to going on the DL and faces a stiff test in his first start back. Fantasy owners would be wise to keep him benched initially.
Jun 23 - 5:23 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will rejoin the Mariners' rotation on Friday versus the Astros.

His return next weekend was expected and manager Scott Servais confirmed it Sunday. King Felix pitched well in his last two rehab outings, but he held a 4.73 ERA prior to going on the DL and faces a stiff test in his first start back.
Jun 18 - 1:29 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) allowed just four hits over six shutout innings Saturday in his third and final rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma.

Hernandez struck out eight and walked none while throwing 57 of his 87 pitches for strikes. At long last, it appears King Felix is finally ready to rejoin the Mariners' starting rotation. It took him almost two months to recover from shoulder bursitis.
