Felix Hernandez notched his MLB-leading seventh victory after tossing of one-run ball in a 4-3 win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

The only run scored on a solo homer from Edwin Encarnacion in the first inning. Otherwise, he was dominant, allowing just four hits in all against two walks and eight strikeouts. King Felix improved to 7-1 with the victory and now owns a 2.19 ERA and 63/14 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings over nine starts. He's been exactly what fantasy owners were hoping for when they paid a high price in drafts this spring.
May 22 - 10:17 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Sunday that Felix Hernandez's ankle is a non-issue and the pitcher will be fine for Friday's start against the Blue Jays.

Hernandez was a little gimpy late in his outing on Saturday versus the Red Sox, but he's expected to be fine. King Felix boasts a 2.30 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over eight starts this season.
May 17 - 2:20 PM

Felix Hernandez yielded four earned runs in six innings Saturday as the Mariners fell to the Red Sox.

Felix didn't look quite right, especially in the sixth inning when he walked three and let the Red Sox take a two-run lead. He was visited by a trainer in that frame but kept pitching. There may be more on that front in the coming days. If he feels well enough, Hernandez will get the Blue Jays on the road on his next turn.
May 17 - 12:09 AM

Felix Hernandez served up a pair of solo home runs to Marcus Semien on Sunday, accounting for both runs against him over seven innings.

On a day when King James hit a jumper at the buzzer to beat the Bulls, King Felix put in a typical day's work without quite as much drama. He struck out six and walked one while scattering five hits over seven innings. Two of those hits came in the form of Marcus Semien solo home runs in the first and sixth innings. They would account for the only runs that the A's scored off Hernandez. With the win, baseball's species of King improved to 6-0, with a 1.85 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 50/8 K/BB ratio in 48 2/3 innings. A home start against the Red Sox is up next for Hernandez.
May 10 - 7:07 PM

Felix Hernandez was his usual dominant self on Monday, limiting the Angels to one run over seven innings in a win as the Mariners escaped with a 3-2 victory.

King Felix allowed his only run in the seventh inning when Matt Joyce hit a solo home run to right-center. It was one of only six hits Angels hitters recorded. Hernandez also walked only one while striking out eight. As expected, Hernandez has dominated the competition to begin the 2015 season, boasting a 1.73 ERA with a 0.84 WHIP and a 44/7 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings. Hernandez will take the mound at home against the Athletics next.
May 5 - 12:58 AM

Felix Hernandez upped his record to 4-0 after allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Rangers.

It wasn't peak Hernandez tonight, but it didn't need to be. He struck out four and threw 114 pitches to get his 20 outs. Factor in the light-hitting opponent and it's probably his worst outing to date, which just illustrates how terrific he is.
Apr 29 - 11:37 PM

Felix Hernandez pitched his 10th career shutout Friday as the Mariners beat the Twins 2-0.

Hernandez struck out nine and walked none in the five-hitter. All of the Twins' hits were singles, and they made him throw just 102 pitches in his nine innings. Not only was the shutout his first since 2012, but it was actually his first complete game since his last shutout; he never went the distance in his near-Cy Young campaign last year.
Apr 25 - 12:31 AM

Felix Hernandez fanned 12 while holding the Rangers to one run over seven innings in a victory Saturday.

Although Hernandez was still bothered by some tightness in his quad, it didn't show in his performance; he allowed just two hits on the night. It was his 11th career 12-strikeout game and first since he fanned 15 against the Rays last June 8.
Apr 19 - 1:18 AM

Felix Hernandez (quad) will make his scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers.

Hernandez had to make an early exit from his outing last Sunday against the Athletics due to tightness in his right quad, but it's not a major concern. King Felix is an obvious must-start versus Texas.
Apr 15 - 6:44 PM

Felix Hernandez (quad) is on track to start Saturday against Texas, provided he gets through a bullpen session Wednesday with no issues.

King Felix had to exit his last outing with a tight right quad, but the expectation is that he'll be fine. "As we speak right now," manager Lloyd McClendon said, "my plan is to go with Felix (on Saturday). I still want to see his bullpen session."
Apr 14 - 8:47 PM

Felix Hernandez allowed eight hits and three earned runs in the five innings he pitched before exiting Sunday's tilt against the A's with tightness in his right quadricep.

As of now, King Felix is expected to make his next start. He wasn't exactly dominating before the injury sidelined him, having struck out just one while allowing eight hits through five innings. Uncharacteristically, the A's were able to put three runs on the board in the fourth, as Hernandez yielded RBI hits to Rajai Davis, Stephen Vogt and Josh Reddick. The ace punched out 10 on Opening Day, though, so no need to be concerned. When healthy, he remains an elite starting option. Should his quad let him make his next start, he'll pitch against the Rangers.
Apr 12 - 7:39 PM

Felix Hernandez was removed from Sunday's start against the Athletics after just five innings due to tightness in his right quadriceps.

The Mariners are calling the exit purely precautionary, and the King is expected to make his next start. It sounds as though he'll be able to take the hill against the Rangers on Saturday, but fantasy owners should monitor his situation to be sure before deploying him next week.
Apr 12 - 6:07 PM

Felix Hernandez fanned 10 while holding the Angels to one run and two hits in seven innings in the Mariners' 4-1 win Monday.

When Mike Trout homered just over Austin Jackson's outstretched glove in the first base, it looked like Hernandez's troubles might not have ended with the Cactus League season. Now, though, his owners can breathe easy. Really, there wasn't any reason for alarm in the first place. His stuff is fine, and he should remain outstanding.
Apr 6 - 7:53 PM

Felix Hernandez was obliterated by the Indians in Tuesday's Cactus League start, surrendering seven runs on five hits over 1 2/3 innings.

King Felix walked a pair and struck out two on the afternoon. The 28-year-old hurler falls to 0-3 on the spring to go along with a troublesome 10.22 ERA in 12 1/3 spring innings. Despite the struggles in Cactus League play, he remains one of the best and most reliable hurlers in the American League and should be selected as such in fantasy drafts.
