Marlins | Jose Fernandez impressive

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez gave up one run and three hits over five innings Sunday, April 7, against the New York Mets, walking one and striking out eight. It was a record amount of strikeouts for a Marlins pitcher in his Major League debut.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez had never pitched above Class A, so this was pretty impressive. The team plans to keep him on a pitch count all season and limit him to 150-170 innings. He is a nice addition in NL-only fantasy leagues if he can duplicate these results regularly, and he is a must-have in long-term keeper formats.
