Hernandez (quadriceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Hernandez was diagnosed with a severe quad strain following his recent MRI, and he'll now be unavailable until at least early August. Daniel Castano is the likeliest candidate to take the right-hander's place in the starting rotation going forward.
Hernandez (quadriceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The 26-year-old was sidelined for two months by a biceps injury only to suffer a quadriceps strain in his return to action Thursday. Hernandez remains without a timeline for his return, but the fact he's sporting crutches is hardly an encouraging sign. The right-hander underwent an MRI which should help determine the severity of the injury.
Hernandez was diagnosed with a right quad strain after exiting Thursday's game against the Pirates. Hernandez had to be helped off the field in the top of the sixth inning after he pulled up while running from third base to home plate. It's not yet clear whether the injury will force the right-hander to miss additional time. If he's able to make his next turn through the rotation, he tentatively lines up to face the Rockies at home Tuesday.
Hernandez was removed from Thursday's game against the Pirates in the top of the sixth inning with an apparent injury, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Hernandez singled in the top of the sixth inning Thursday and was later brought in to score, but he appeared to pull up while running from third to home, and he had to be helped off the field as a result. The right-hander was making his season debut after he missed the start of the year due to a biceps issue, but the nature and severity of his most recent injury aren't yet clear. Prior to his departure, Hernandez allowed one run on three hits and no walks while striking out six across five innings.
The Marlins activated Hernandez (biceps) from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Pirates, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Hernandez built up to 79 pitches in his third and final rehab start for Triple-A Jacksonville on May 28, so he should have a relatively soft restriction with his workload while he takes the hill for Miami for the first time since April 3. His return should fortify what's been one of the National League's stronger rotations this season, with all four other Marlins starters (Sandy Alcantara, Trevor Rogers, Pablo Lopez and Cody Poteet) holding down ERAs below 3.75. Hernandez was effective at making bats miss during his rehab assignment, racking up 17 punchouts over 12.1 innings.
