Hernandez didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Mets, giving up two runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out six without walking a batter.

The right-hander exited the game after an efficient 65 pitches (48 strikes), but he was on the hook for his fourth loss until the Marlins rallied for three runs in the eighth inning. Hernandez will wrap up an injury-truncated season with a 4.18 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 53:14 K:BB through 51.2 innings, and barring some radical changes to Miami's roster, Hernandez should head into spring training next year as a favorite for a rotation spot.
