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 rehab update

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 19:34:02 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) tossed five scoreless innings in his second rehab start for Class A Jupiter Friday, June 12. He threw 65 pitches and allowed two hits and a walk, while striking out four batters.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez had far better results in this rehab outing than in his last appearance. He was able to throw his breaking ball and changeup effectively for strikes and his fastball registered 94-98 mph on the radar gun. In addition, he threw first-pitch strikes to 12 of the 16 batters he faced. Fernandez should already be owned in all fantasy leagues and should be a popular FantasyScore option when he returns to the majors in a few weeks.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez to return in early July

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 09:10:00 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) is scheduled to make another rehab start later this week after struggling in his first rehab start for Class A Jupiter Saturday, June 6. Manager Dan Jennings said last week that early July is a realistic return date for Fernandez, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: The National League Rookie of the Year in 2013 should already be owned in all leagues, and his return sometime next month should definitely help a fantasy pitching staff in the second half of the season. The fact that he's more than a year removed from the elbow surgery means there's a greater chance he won't struggle with velocity and location in the big leagues when he rejoins the rotation. Fernandez should also be a popular pick on FantasyScore when he returns.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez struggles in rehab start

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 12:09:43 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) allowed five earned runs on eight hits over three innings in his first rehab start for Class A Jupiter Saturday, June 6. He struck out two batters and threw 39 of his 54 pitches for strikes, with his velocity reaching 99 mph. After the game, Fernandez said he felt healthy, although he only threw four or five breaking balls during the entire outing.

Fantasy Tip: At this stage of his rehab, the health of Fernandez's arm is far more important than the results. He will make his second rehab start later this week and is expected to rejoin the parent club early next month, according to manager Dan Jennings. Seasonal owners should continue to stash him on their roster, provided that they have the roster space.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez sharp in rehab

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez was facing live hitters in game action for the first time in over a year. He is still weeks away from a return to the rotation in Miami, but is targeting a season debut sometime before the All-Star break.
