Marlins | Jose Fernandez solid again

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 19:00:54 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez allowed two runs on four hits and struck out six over six innings in a no-decision against the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) didn't earn the win, but he has still impressed in three starts since returning from elbow surgery. He owns a 2.38 ERA and has fanned 21 batters in 19 innings. He offers the potential for ace-caliber production at FantasyScore at a slightly discounted price.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez starting Friday

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 16:11:50 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez will start Friday, July 17, against the Philadelphia Phillies. SP Tom Koehler will start Saturday and SP Dan Haren will start Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has picked up two straight wins since his return from Tommy John surgery, but he was most impressive in his last outing when he went seven scoreless innings while striking out nine Cincinnati Reds. The matchup is perfect for Fernandez, and he's likely to be one of the most owned pitchers.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez sets record

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 19:00:29 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez set an MLB record Thursday, July 9, for the most consecutive home starts without a loss to start a career. Fernandez set the mark at 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) picked up his second win since returning from Tommy John surgery. Fernandez didn't allow a single run while striking out nine hitters over seven complete innings. Fernandez is officially back, and FantasyScore owners should fit him in while his price is slightly below the elite tier.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez money at home

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:09:17 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez is slated to face the Cincinnati Reds at home Thursday, July 9, in his second start back after recovering from Tommy John surgery. He had a quality start and win against San Francisco July 2 in his season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Remember, Fernandez ($7,900; or 15.8% of cap) is 13-0 with a 1.23 ERA in 21 career outings at home, so FantasyScore players will be all over him Thursday.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez proves his health

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:10:53 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) struck out six batters over six innings while allowing three earned runs on seven hits during the Marlins 5-4 win over the San Francisco Giants Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) recorded the win in his season debut and first start after a 14-month recovery process from Tommy John surgery. Fantasy owners can now start Fernandez with confidence in all formats going forward, and it isn't out of the question for him to return near-elite numbers the rest of the season. Although, it is likely wise to keep your expectations in check and count on a few peaks and valleys.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez will have more rest

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:46:49 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez will have six days of rest before his second start of the season, which is scheduled to come at home Thursday, July 9, against the Cincinnati Reds. Fernandez was 16-8 with a 2.25 ERA in 36 career starts before having Tommy John surgery last year, but he had no significant setbacks during his rehab. Fernandez will be on a "common sense" pitch count in his first start Thursday, July 2, against the San Francisco Giants, according to manager Dan Jennings. Fernandez threw 90 pitches in his final rehab start in the minors last Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez's ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) risks outweigh the potential reward in his first start in the bigs in more than a year. He could be a bit rusty and on a pitch count, and don't forget, the Giants have the highest OPS of any team on the road this season.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez activated

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:12:12 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, July 2, and will start against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) is at too high of a price to trust on FantasyScore today. He's one of the best pitchers in baseball, but rust and a pitch limit could be factors.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez returning Thursday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:18:54 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) is returning to start against the San Francisco Giants Thursday, July 2, for the first time since May 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Fernandez was the team's opening day starter last year.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) should already be owned in all leagues. On FantasyScore, it'll be tempting to use him immediately, but remember, the Giants lead the league with a .776 OPS on the road, there is plenty of risk in taking Fernandez right out of the gates.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez won't return until July 2

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:39:45 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) won't return to the major leagues until Thursday, July 2, despite his success during his rehab starts. "It's what we mapped out. It's the protocol that we set in place a long time ago, so there's no reason to deviate from that now," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. Fernandez will make his final rehab start Saturday, June 27, at Class AA Jacksonville.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez should be considered as an elite option on FantasyScore as soon as he is activated.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez throws 90 pitches

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 08:41:51 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) reported no pain after throwing 90 pitches in his rehab start Monday, June 22, at Class A Jupiter. Fernandez will start for Class AA Jacksonville Saturday, June 27, and is slated to return July 2 against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez is super talented, but his price point on FantasyScore will be the determining factor on whether he's usable in that first start.
