Mariners | Felix Hernandez scratched from start
Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez (back) has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday, Sept. 11, due to stiffness in his back. He'll be replaced by SP Brandon Maurer. Maurer was in the rotation earlier this year and is 4-7 with a 6.85 ERA. Hernandez felt more stiffness while throwing on flat ground over the weekend, but the injury isn't considered serious.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez has plenty of innings on his arm over the last few seasons, so the M's will be extremely cautious here. Maurer was scheduled to enter the rotation anyway with the club going with a six-man rotation down the stretch. He's an option in deep AL-only leagues.
