      Analysis: The risk and reward of drafting Jose Fernandez

      How good can Jose Fernandez be? When thinking about drafting him, that is part of the equation, and it's a big part. He enters this season with just 289 innings under his belt, but oh my, what innings they have been. He has a 2.52 career FIP and 2.40 ERA, including a 2.24 and 2.92 mark last season in his return from Tommy John surgery. At his best, Fernandez has a chance to be Jake Arrieta-esque, if not quite Clayton Kershaw. Of course, the other side of the equation is just as big a part of it. Fernandez is just a year removed from his return from surgery, which means an innings limit is almost assured. What might be even more concerning, however, is that Fernandez had to be shut down after his return last season due to a biceps injury. There is enough reason to be concerned about his ability to make it through a full season that you have to downgrade him on Draft Day, and you almost certainly have to build up your pitching depth for when he is shut down. But the upside is high enough that he could be worth the headache.

      Marlins' Jose Fernandez: Settles with Marlins

      Fernandez and the Marlins agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.8 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Fernandez will get a healthy raise in his first year of arbitration eligibility, jumping up from his $651,000 salary last season. After returning from Tommy John surgery, Fernandez made 11 starts, going 6-1 with a 2.92 ERA across 64.2 innings.

      Marlins SP Jose Fernandez strikes out nine, loses final start of 2015

      Marlins starter Jose Fernandez (6-1) took his first loss of the season in his final start of the season, giving up two runs on 11 hits in six innings against the Rays, though he struck out nine. Ironically, Fernandez was much worse in the start prior to this one, giving up six runs in five innings, but nonetheless coming away with a win. In any case, his 12-start return from Tommy John surgery has certainly been a rousing success, and Fernandez should be considered a borderline-elite starting option for next season, with the lone caveat of a potential innings limit.

      Marlins' Jose Fernandez overcomes shaky outing to earn sixth win

      Marlins starter Jose Fernandez (6-0) surrendered six runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two in Friday's win over Atlanta. Friday's start, far and away Fernandez's worst of the season, inflated his ERA from 2.18 to 2.91. Still, Fernandez continues to boast an elite 10.74 K/9 rate in his 10 starts this season to go along with a 1.09 WHIP. Consider Friday a blip and feel confident using Fernandez next week.

      Marlins SP Jose Fernandez tosses 5 2/3 innings in no-decision

      Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez allowed two runs on five hits, walking two and striking out eight over 5.2 innings, but was left with a no-decision as the Marlins fell to the Nationals 4-3 in 10 innings Friday night. The Marlins are being understandably cautious with his workload as he comes back from Tommy John surgery and then a biceps strain. He tossed 95 pitches (58 for strikes) in this one, and carries a tidy 2.18 ERA on the season. He'll look to return to his spot near the top of the list of elite starting pitchers next season.
