Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery by the end of this week, which will end his 2014 season.
Fantasy Tip: You can obviously drop Fernandez in redraft leagues. Keeper leaguers will be forced to hold Fernandez and deal with what could be mostly a lost season in 2015, as well. Anthony DeSclafini will fill the Fish's rotation spot initially, but prospects Brian Flynn and Andrew Heaney are the most alluring candidates to get some rotation time later this summer.

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (undisclosed) is expected to land on the disabled list with an unknown injury.
Fantasy Tip: The exact nature of the injury is a mystery right now. Fernandez is undergoing an MRI exam in L.A., and we should know more this evening or tomorrow morning. Of the options currently on the roster, Kevin Slowey or Brad Hand could enter the rotation to take Fernandez's spot. Down on the farm, prospect Andrew Heaney or Brian Flynn would cause the bigger stir in fantasy circles if they were to be brought up. Stay tuned.

Miami Marlins SP Jacob Turner is all but guaranteed a starting rotation spot this year. President of baseball operations Michael Hill mentions SPs Brad Hand, Brian Flynn and Tom Koehler as candidates to compete for the fifth and final rotation spot. SPs Andrew Heaney, Justin Nicolino, Adam Conley and Anthony DeSclafini will receive spring innings to prove themselves, but they'll likely start in the minors.

The Miami Marlins are considering giving SP Jacob Turner more rest before his next start after he failed to go six innings for his sixth straight start Sunday, Sept. 8. His next turn in the rotation is scheduled to come up Friday, Sept. 13, against the New York Mets. SPs Brad Hand and Brian Flynn will play into the equation in the starting rotation down the stretch.
Fantasy Tip: Turner appears to be tiring down the stretch, which is a good reason for the Fish to rest him in the final weeks. Hand and Flynn should only be considered in NL-only universes.

The Miami Marlins will call up C Rob Brantly, RP Arquimedes Caminero, SP Brian Flynn and SP Brad Hand from Triple-A New Orleans Tuesday, Sept. 3. Flynn will start Wednesday, Sept. 4, against the Chicago Cubs.

The Miami Marlins are expected to recall SP Brian Flynn to make his major league debut and start Wednesday, Sept. 4, against the Chicago Cubs.

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez will be shut down at around 170 innings this year. He's currently at 139 2/3 innings, so he could be shut down before the season's final month. Fernandez had never pitched above Class A before this season as a 21-year-old. The team could decide to shut SP Jacob Turner down, too, if he shows signs of fatigue. SPs Brad Hand and Brian Flynn could be called up in September to help fill the rotation. SP Sam Dyson is another candidate. It's doubtful SPs Andrew Heaney, Anthony DeSclafini or Justin Nicolino will be recalled from Double-A Jacksonville.
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez, at 8-5 with a 2.45 ERA and 149 strikeouts, is a heavy favorite for NL Rookie of the Year honors. He's been fantastic, but the time to utilize his talents is running out. Just be aware. Any of the young hurlers the Marlins may call up would only be useful for a start or two in deep NL-only leagues. If you're in the running for a fantasy championship, it's probably wise not to rely on them.
