Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Plagued by homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (1-3) took the loss Wednesday against Washington, yielding four runs on seven hits and two walks over four innings. He had seven strikeouts.

The long ball was a problem for Hernandez, who was taken deep by Yadiel Hernandez, Juan Soto and Luis Garcia and trailed 4-0 after throwing his 78th and final pitch in the fourth inning. Since joining the rotation in mid-August, Hernandez has logged a 4.72 ERA and 34:13 K:BB over 34.1 innings in his seven starts. He's slated for a road matchup with the Mets in his next scheduled start.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Walks five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (1-2) allowed two unearned runs on four hits and five walks over 5.2 innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against Pittsburgh.

Hernandez allowed a run in the first inning on a fielding error by Jazz Chisholm and another in the sixth after a passed ball. Despite walking a career-high five batters, the 26-year-old actually lowered his ERA to 3.59 through 42.2 innings. Hernandez had walked just five batters through 19.1 innings in his previous four starts. He's lined up to face the Nationals at home next week.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Struggles in Saturday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez completed 4.2 innings against Atlanta on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision.

Miami's offense provided Hernandez a three-run lead after two innings, and the right-hander kept Atlanta off the scoreboard through four frames. However, things fell apart for Hernandez in the fifth frame, as he surrendered three straight two-out hits that plated a trio of runs and led to his removal. While he didn't give up any long balls for the first time in seven starts this season, the seven hits Hernandez surrendered tied his season-worst mark. The 26-year-old is tentatively scheduled to make his next start at home versus Pittsburgh on Friday.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Philadelphia after allowing three runs on three hits and a walk across five innings, striking out six.

Hernandez had issues with the long ball once again after allowing two homers, and he has given up at least one bomb in each of his six appearances this season and posting a career-worst 2.5 HR/9 thus far. He has also given up multiple runs in each of his last three outings and has yet to record a quality start, but he has limited the damage most of the time and still owns a 3.90 ERA through 32.1 innings this year. He also sports a strong 9.2 K/9, making it the third year in a row in which he has posted a 9.0 K/9 or higher.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Getting ball for suspended game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins are expected to deploy Hernandez as their "starting pitcher" Tuesday in the resumption of their suspended game against the Mets from April 11, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

John Curtiss will be credited as the starter for the game, which was suspended with the Marlins at bat with one out and a runner on first base in the top of the first inning. Since Curtiss has since been traded, Hernandez will stay on turn in the rotation and should be in line for a relatively normal outing, despite technically entering the game as a reliever. Meanwhile, Edward Cabrera will be called on to make a spot start later Tuesday, when the Marlins and Mets play their normally scheduled game, which will be seven innings. Either Hernandez or Cabrera would then line up for a second start later in the week, when the Marlins finish out their series with the Phillies on Sunday.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Bounces back Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (1-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk over five innings in Thursday's win over Washington. He struck out four and picked up the victory.

Hernandez put together a nice performance after being roughed up in his previous start against the Reds, holding the Nationals off the board until the fifth inning. Alcides Escobar reached on an error and Juan Soto followed with a two-run homer, but Hernandez responded by inducing groundball outs from Josh Bell and Yadiel Hernandez to get through the frame. The 26-year-old hurler owns a 3.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB in 22.1 innings and is tentatively lined up to make his next start on the road against the struggling Mets.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Hits wall against Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (0-1) took the loss Friday as the Marlins were downed 5-3 by the Reds, giving up five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out six.

The right-hander settled down after allowing two runs in the first inning, but Hernandez ran out of steam in the fifth and served up homers to Tyler Naquin and Joey Votto before getting the hook. He pounded the zone all night, with 54 of his 68 pitches going for strikes, but that also left him vulnerable to hard contact as only one of the five hits off him was a single. Hernandez has a 4.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB through 10 innings in his two starts since coming off the injured list.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Yields one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez allowed a run on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in Sunday's win over the Cubs. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

It was Hernandez's third MLB appearance this season and first since June 3 after his second stint on the 60-day injured list. He showed no signs of rust, cruising through five shutout innings to begin the game. The only blemish on his outing was a solo shot off the bat of Frank Schwindel in the sixth. It's been a small sample size, but Hernandez has impressed this season with a 2.84 ERA and a 13:1 K:BB over 12.2 frames. He's projected to take the mound in Cincinnati next week.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Rejoining rotation Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins activated Hernandez (quadriceps) from the 60-day injured list to start Sunday's game against the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Though Miami never officially announced beforehand that Hernandez would return from the IL ahead of the series finale, things were pointing in that direction after he dazzled in his final rehab start for Triple-A Jacksonville on Wednesday, when he struck out 10 over five innings of one-run ball. Hernandez built up to 62 pitches in that outing, so he should be capable of giving the Marlins around 75-to-85 pitches in his first start with the big club since June 3. Though the right-hander has missed considerable time with injuries the past two seasons, he's been very effective in his eight MLB starts over that stretch, posting a 3.27 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 28.6 K-BB%.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Dazzles in latest rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (quadriceps) made the third start of his minor-league rehab assignment at Double-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, tossing five innings and allowing one run on two hits and no walks while striking out 10.

Hernandez needed only 62 pitches (48 strikes) to record his 10 punchouts. After missing the past two months with a right quad strain, Hernandez has looked dominant through his three rehab outings, allowing only one run while posting an 18:0 K:BB in 11.2 innings. The Marlins haven't announced their plans for Hernandez, but based on where his pitch count currently stands and how he's performed in the minors, his next start will most likely come with the big club either Sunday against the Cubs or during next week's series with Atlanta. The 26-year-old right-hander makes for an intriguing pitcher to stash in leagues where he's sitting on the waiver wire.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (quadriceps) will make his next rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The 26-year-old made his first rehab outing Saturday for Double-A Pensacola, and he allowed one hit with three strikeouts and zero walks over 2.2 scoreless innings. Hernandez should continue ramping up his workload and will likely need another rehab start or after Thursday's appearance before rejoining the Marlins.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Rehab starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (quadriceps) will begin a rehab assignment Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez has made two separate trips to the 60-day injured list this season but is closing in on a return to action. Given the length of his latest absence, however, he's likely to require multiple rehab outings before returning to action.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Ready to face hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Hernandez (quadriceps) will face hitters in a live batting practice session at the team's spring training facility in Jupiter, Fla., Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Hernandez was able to complete bullpen sessions last week without incident, so he'll move on to the next phase of his rehab from a strained right quad. If he steers clear of any setbacks while throwing live BP, Hernandez could then head out on a minor-league rehab assignment. The 26-year-old right-hander has made just two starts for the big club this season, as he previously missed two months of action with right biceps tendon inflammation.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (quadriceps) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Monday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Hernandez has made just two big-league starts this season, exiting both of them with injuries which wound up sending him to the 60-day injured list. He won't be eligible to return from his latest issue, a strained quadriceps, until early August. Whether or not he'll make it back when first eligible remains to be seen, but he's at least trending in the right direction.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Cleared for light throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (quadriceps) was cleared to resume light tossing and range-of-motion work earlier this week, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Hernandez was placed on the 60-day injured list shortly after exiting a June 3 start against the Pirates with a severe right quadriceps strain, so he won't be eligible to return to the active roster until early August at the soonest. He'll have multiple hurdles to clear in the recovery process, but the fact that Hernandez is already doing some activity is a positive sign for his recovery.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Moves to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Diagnosed with quad strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Reinstated prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
