Hernandez (lat) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday and will therefore miss the remainder of the season. Hernandez left his start Tuesday against the Blue Jays with right lat soreness, and the issue is evidently bad enough that he'll wind up getting shut down for the year. He'll end his third big-league season with a 3.16 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP in six starts. Both his 32.1 percent strikeout rate and 4.7 percent walk rate were excellent, though he'll head into 2021 with a fair amount of risk given his injury and the small size of his promising sample this season.
Hernandez (lat) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Hernandez left his start Tuesday against Toronto with what was originally called right lat soreness, but the diagnosis has been updated to a strain. His expected return date is not yet clear, but he'll miss at least one turn in the rotation, as he won't be eligible to be activated until Sept. 12. The Marlins are expected to activate Jose Urena from the COVID-19 injured list next week when a new fifth starter is needed, but utility man Eddy Alvarez was recalled in a corresponding move Wednesday.
Hernandez exited Tuesday's start against the Blue Jays with right lat soreness, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The 25-year-old finished two innings and returned for his third frame, but he called the training staff to the mound and exited after throwing some warmup pitches. According to Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com, Hernandez will undergo an MRI and is expected to miss at least one start. A trip to the injured list is also possible.
Hernandez was removed before the start of the third inning during Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The 25-year-old allowed one run on two hits with two strikeouts and one walk through two innings and came out to warm up for his third frame, but something was wrong as he called for the training staff and left the field. Hernandez's status for his next turn through the rotation will be up in the air until more is known on the injury.
Hernandez gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and walk in four innings versus the Mets on Wednesday. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision. Hernandez allowed solo shots to Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo in the contest -- the righty has given up multiple homers in each of his last two starts. The 25-year-old has a 3.04 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 32 strikeouts through 23.2 innings this season. Hernandez will look to keep up the strong pitching Tuesday versus the Blue Jays.
