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.

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will make another rehab start.

It's likely to come on Saturday with Triple-A Tacoma. Hernandez was roughed up in his first rehab outing but pitched well in his last one with five innings of one-run ball. Assuming things go well Saturday, he should then be cleared to rejoin the Mariners' rotation.
Jun 12 - 5:25 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) allowed one hit, one run and one walk over five innings Sunday in his second rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma.

He recorded five strikeouts over 64 pitches. This was a noticeable improvement from Hernandez's first rehab start and it's likely he'll need just one more outing before he's ready to join Seattle's starting rotation. Shoulder inflammation has sidelined the former Cy Young winner since late April.
Jun 11 - 6:47 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will throw about 65 pitches in Sunday's rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma.

Hernandez will likely need more rehab start after Sunday to build his pitch count back up. Either way, he's getting close. King Felix has been sidelined with shoulder inflammation since late April.
Jun 10 - 7:51 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) allowed five runs on four hits and two walks over two innings in his rehab debut Tuesday with Triple-A Tacoma.

Hernandez threw a total of 50 pitches in the outing. Box scores aren't all that important for most minor league rehab assignments, but King Felix owners are watching closely given that the veteran right-hander had struggled prior to landing on the disabled list April 26 with right shoulder inflammation. Hernandez will make at least one more rehab start.
Jun 6 - 10:05 PM

Felix Hernanez (shoulder) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

Hernandez felt great after his simulated game on Friday and is ready to take the next step in his recovery. He has been sidelined since April 26 due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder. Prior to landing on the disabled list, he posted a 4.73 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 22/3 K/BB ratio through 26 2/3 innings.
Jun 2 - 7:43 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a couple innings in a simulated game Friday.

If that goes well, he should be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment next Wednesday. Hernandez has been on the disabled list since April 26 because of inflammation in his right shoulder. He was sporting an underwhelming 4.73 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, and 22/3 K/BB ratio through 26 2/3 innings (five starts) this season for Seattle.
Jun 1 - 2:18 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) is expected to throw a simulated game on Friday or Saturday.

Should Hernandez make it through that simulated game without issue, he would likely set out on a minor league rehab assignment shortly thereafter. He has been on the schelf with right shoulder inflammation since April 26, but could potentially rejoin the rotation in mid-June.
May 31 - 6:53 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session Tuesday.

Hernandez is expected to make a simulated appearance later this week before embarking on a minor league rehab assignment.

He has been on the disabled list since April 26 with right shoulder inflammation.
May 30 - 4:48 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session Tuesday.

May 29 - 3:05 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) threw a successful 25-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

The veteran right-hander came away from the session feeling good. He's scheduled to throw another one in a couple of days and if all goes well there could be cleared to throw to live hitters. A return in mid-to-late June is possible.
May 27 - 2:09 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Hernandez played long toss on Tuesday and came away from that without any discomfort. Right shoulder inflammation has kept him on the shelf since April 26. As he begins to throw off the mound, a concrete timetable for his return should begin to clarify. It looks to be several more weeks before he rejoins the rotation.
