The Mariners will shut down Felix Hernandez (elbow) for the season.
King Felix was only going to make one more start this season anyway, and with the M's out of the hunt it doesn't make sense for them to push their ace. The 29-year-old's season ends with a 18-9 record, 3.53 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 191/58 K/BB ratio in 31 starts. Sep 30 - 6:26 PM

Felix Hernandez (elbow) will start Saturday in Anaheim.

Hernandez left his last start with elbow stiffness, but he felt good after a throwing session on Tuesday. The ace right-hander is sitting on a 3.54 ERA, 1.165 WHIP, and 185/56 K/BB ratio through 195 2/3 innings.
Sep 23 - 4:59 PM

Felix Hernandez (elbow) fully expects to make his next scheduled start.

Hernandez was removed from his outing Sunday against the Rangers after experiencing stiffness in his right elbow, but he's already feeling better. The ace right-hander owns a 3.54 ERA, 1.165 WHIP, and 185/56 K/BB ratio in 195 2/3 innings this season for the M's.

Felix Hernandez was removed from Sunday's start against the Rangers with stiffness in his right elbow.

While any injury to a pitcher's elbow or shoulder are always very concerning, the M's are calling his exit precautionary and believe that he will be able to make his next scheduled start. Fantasy owners should monitor his status this week.
Sep 20 - 6:05 PM

Felix Hernandez was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Rangers in the sixth inning with an apparent injury.

It isn't yet clear what exactly the All-Star right-hander did, but the team trainer was called to the mound and Hernandez walked off with him in the sixth inning. Before departing, he surrendered two runs on four hits over his 5 2/3 innings. The Mariners should have an update on his status shortly.
Sep 20 - 5:38 PM

Felix Hernandez allowed four runs in seven innings, taking the loss on Tuesday against the Angels.

Hernandez made a mistake in the third inning, resulting in a three-run home run to David Murphy. Mike Trout would add a solo homer in the sixth. They were two of five hits the right-hander gave up along with two walks and five strikeouts. Though he has pitched better as of late, King Felix's numbers are still pedestrian by his standards -- he owns a 3.55 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 180/51 K/BB ratio over 190 innings. He will start next against the Royals in Kansas City.
Sep 16 - 12:55 AM

Felix Hernandez fired eight innings of shutout baseball as the Mariners dispatched of the Rangers on Thursday afternoon in Seattle.

The King scattered just four hits on the day while punching out eight and walking four. Even with a few incredible blow ups this season, Hernandez still boasts a terrific 17-8 record, 3.49 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 175/49 K/BB ratio through 183 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine performance when he squares off against the Angels at home on Tuesday.
Sep 10 - 6:20 PM

Felix Hernandez held the A's to three runs over eight innings Saturday in the Mariners' 8-3 victory.

Hernandez was working on extended rest and looked sharp, striking out nine and scattering six hits without issuing a walk. He looks poised to finish the season strong for the out-of-contention Mariners. A start at home versus the Rangers is next.
Sep 6 - 12:10 AM

Felix Hernandez will have his next turn in the rotation skipped.

Vidal Nuno will start on Monday in Houston instead. King Felix pitched well his last time out but overall has struggled for the last month, so getting him some extra rest probably isn't a bad idea. "I did the same thing last year," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I freshened my pitchers up, and Felix had the best September of his career. Everybody thought I was nuts when I did it. I’ll do it again because it’s the right thing to do."
Aug 30 - 11:48 AM

Felix Hernandez allowed two runs over eight innings in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

King Felix had been shaky in his previous two starts and didn't get off to a great beginning Wednesday after Billy Burns hit a first-pitch home run, but the right-hander settled down after that. He gave up just three hits, including another solo homer, on the afternoon, walking one while striking out seven. The win moved him to 15-8 on the year. Hernandez will look to improve on his 3.66 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 158/45 K/BB ratio in Monday's start at the Astros.
Aug 26 - 7:13 PM

Felix Hernandez yielded four runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the White Sox.

It wasn't as bad as last week's drubbing by the Red Sox, but Hernandez gave up nine more hits tonight and saw his ERA rise to 3.74. He's recorded just one quality start in his last five outings, which rates as a stunning display of mediocrity from the guy who still looked like a Cy Young contender a month ago.
Aug 22 - 1:35 AM

Felix Hernandez was absolutely obliterated in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox, allowing a career-worst 10 runs on 12 hits over just 2 1/3 innings.

Hernandez walked one and struck out two on the afternoon. Every Red Sox batter seemed locked in against him, with Alejandro De Aza, Pablo Sandoval and Jackie Bradley each taking him deep. It's the fourth time this season that he has allowed more than five earned runs in a start. Even with this massive debacle though, he still owns a respectable 3.65 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. He'll try to right the ship on Friday against the White Sox.
Aug 15 - 4:57 PM

Felix Hernandez tossed an ace's equivalent of a workmanlike start against the Rangers in Sunday's 4-2 win, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings.

Hernandez didn't wow with big strikeout numbers (he fanned five on the day), but he pitched effectively over the course of his seven innings. Rougned Odor burned him for an RBI double in the second inning and Hernandez burned himself with a run-scoring wild pitch in the third, but he otherwise kept the boys from Texas quiet. King Felix hasn't been melting the rest of the league the way he did last season, but his numbers are respectably strong across the board and he's pitching to a 3.11 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 145/42 K/BB ratio over 150 2/3 innings. He'll head to Fenway for a face-off with the Red Sox in his next start.
Aug 9 - 6:54 PM

Felix Hernandez won his 13th game of the season, giving up four runs in 6 2/3 innings versus the Rockies on Monday.

Hernandez was coming off of a beating against the Diamondbacks in which he gave up 12 hits. He gave up 11 hits this time around, but the Rockies could only capitalize for four runs. He also walked one while striking out nine. Though Hernandez's numbers are down from last year's effort -- when he finished second in AL Cy Young Award balloting -- his 3.13 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 140/41 K/BB ratio in 143 2/3 innings are quite good nevertheless. He'll host the Rangers in his next start.
Aug 4 - 12:29 AM

Felix Hernandez was hit hard in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, allowing seven runs on 12 hits over 6 2/3 innings.

On the plus side, he did manage to strike out seven while issuing just one walk in the rough outing. His primary nemesis in this one was Welington Castillo who blasted a pair of home runs. Even with this debacle, Hernandez will carry a 3.02 ERA and 131/40 K/BB ratio into a tough matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday.
