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.

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.
Mar 31 - 10:07 PM

Felix Hernandez tossed six effective innings, holding the Royals to one run on Thursday.

It was the first time this spring Hernandez had completed even the third inning, let alone six frames. No matter, though, as the Mariners have been carefully managing the right-hander's workload. Hernandez, soon to be 29 years old, has logged 200-plus innings in each of the last seven seasons.
Mar 26 - 6:33 PM

Felix Hernandez was hit hard by the Cubs in Saturday's start, as he was on the hook for six runs over 2 2/3 innings.

Hernandez served up home runs to Kris Bryant and Addison Russell, two of the Cubs' best prospects, so there's certainly no shame there. On the afternoon, the right-hander allowed six hits and a walk while striking out two. The Mariners had Hernandez, who has only logged 4 2/3 innings so far, make a late start to the spring just to manage his workload. He led the league with a 2.14 ERA in 236 innings last season and should be counted on to be among the elite again in 2015.
Mar 21 - 7:50 PM

Felix Hernandez hurled two scoreless innings against the Rockies in his Cactus League debut Tuesday.

Felix didn't yield any hits, though he did issue one walk. The 28-year-old ace will make his next start on the minor league side of Mariners camp to avoid a meeting with the Dodgers, whom the Mariners play an interleague series against in April.
Mar 10 - 7:11 PM

Felix Hernandez will make his next start Sunday on the minor league side.

King Felix is slated to make his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Rockies. His next start was expected to be Sunday against the Dodgers, but since the Mariners will face them in April, manager Lloyd McClendon decided to switch things up.
Mar 10 - 11:21 AM

Felix Hernandez will make his Cactus League debut on Tuesday against the Rockies.

Hernandez had been scheduled to work Wednesday, but has been bumped up a day. He has been eased into action this spring after shouldering such a large workload, logging over 230 innings in five of the past six seasons. He remains one of the truly elite hurlers in the American League.
Mar 7 - 10:55 AM

Felix Hernandez will throw another live batting practice session before making his Cactus League debut.

Hernandez threw his first BP session of the spring on Wednesday. The Mariners' ace is completely fine, but just wants another tune-up before getting into game action.
Mar 4 - 1:01 PM

Felix Hernandez is scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday.

The Mariners will decide after whether King Felix will throw another BP session or progress to live game action. Hernandez posted a fantastic 2.14 ERA with a 248/46 K/BB ratio across 236 innings last season and will likely be the second starting pitcher off the board in most mixed fantasy leagues this spring.
