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.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: In line to rejoin rotation Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) is expected to be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Thursday's game against the Pirates, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Manager Don Mattingly hasn't been willing to definitively say that Hernandez will start Thursday's game, but it will be a foregone conclusion if the right-hander is activated ahead of the 7:05 p.m. ET opening pitch, as anticipated. Hernandez recently wrapped up a three-start rehab assignment at Triple-A Jacksonville, which culminated in him throwing 4.2 innings (79 pitches) on May 28. The Marlins aren't likely to have Hernandez throw more than 100 pitches if he returns Thursday, but he shouldn't be subject to significant restrictions with his workload in any case. The 26-year-old was sharp in his six starts with Miami in 2020, posting a 3.16 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 34:5 K:BB in 25.2 innings.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Could return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) could return from the 60-day injured list when he's first eligible Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Manager Don Mattingly recently named Miami's starters for Tuesday and Wednesday, but he hasn't yet announced who will take the mound Thursday. Hernandez made his third rehab start for Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday and allowed seven runs (six earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out five in 4.2 innings. Even though he struggled to limit offensive production, he still threw 54 of his 79 pitches for strikes during the outing.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Another rehab outing on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) will make a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The 26-year-old made his second rehab start in the minors Sunday and will take the mound again Friday for Jacksonville. Hernandez threw 55 pitches in his last outing and should continue building up his pitch count as he closes in on his return from the injured list.

May 24, 2021 03:20 PM
Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Sharp in latest rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) covered four scoreless frames for Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out eight.

Hernandez pushed his pitch count up to 55 (39 strikes) in his second rehab outing for Jacksonville. The right-hander has looked strong during both of the starts, allowing no runs while posting a 12:2 K:BB in 7.2 innings. The Marlins will likely have Hernandez make one more rehab start for Jacksonville before activating him from the 60-day injured list early next week.

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

The Marlins transferred Hernandez (biceps) to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The move does not necessarily mark a setback in Hernandez's recovery, but rather an effort to free up a spot on the 40-man roster until the pitcher is ready to return. Hernandez has already begun his rehab and figures to be ready for activation in the near future, but this move means he will not be eligible to return until June 4 at the earliest.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Rehab assignment starts Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) expected to throw 45-to-50 pitches in his first rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez has reached the final phase of his recovery program for right biceps inflammation, an injury that cropped up during his first start of the season April 3. The Marlins will likely want Hernandez to get stretched out to around 80 pitches before bringing him back from the 10-day injured list, so he'll presumably require an additional rehab start beyond Tuesday. If he emerges from his rehab assignment setback-free, Hernandez could slot back into the Miami rotation in the second half of next week.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Rehab starting next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment next week, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Reports from last week suggested that this could be the week Hernandez begins a rehab assignment, but he evidently needs a bit more time. He got through a 30-pitch live batting practice session Thursday but will need to build up his pitch count before returning to the big-league rotation.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Progressing in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) is throwing a bullpen Tuesday and live batting practice Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander presumably requires multiple rehab starts before returning to the big league-rotation. Hernandez exited his season debut April 3 after 2.1 innings and was placed on the injured list two days later. His activation from the injured list likely remains at least two weeks off.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Rehab assignment coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week provided his live batting practice session goes well Saturday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Hernandez has been making steady progress as he works his way back from biceps inflammation, an injury which forced him to leave his first start of the year early. He's only expected to throw 20 pitches Saturday, so he'll likely need multiple rehab starts before he's built up to a starter's workload.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Set for live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) will throw 20 pitches of live batting practice Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez left his first start of the year with biceps inflammation but has been making steady progress towards a return to the mound. He threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is now ready to face hitters. His pitch count still isn't anywhere close to a starter's workload, however, so he has some work left to do before returning to game action.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Tosses 30-pitch session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) completed a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

The Marlins were apparently pleased with how Hernandez fared in the side session, so he'll take the next step forward in his recovery by facing hitters in a live batting practice session Saturday. After that, Hernandez will likely need to pitch in at least one simulated game or minor-league rehab game before the Marlins bring him back from the injured list. Fantasy managers who have been holding Hernandez since he picked up the injury should prepare for him to miss two more weeks.

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

Hernandez (biceps) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez couldn't complete three innings in his first start of the year before being shut down with biceps inflammation. Wednesday's milestone is a significant one, but he'll still have to build up his pitch count and likely appear in rehab games before returning to the active roster. It's not yet clear when the Marlins expect that to happen.

Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Nearing bullpen work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) is expected to throw a bullpen session this week, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez exited his first start of the year with biceps inflammation. He's been out for over three weeks but appears to be making good progress in his throwing program, throwing from 105 feet without issues.

April 22, 2021 09:16 PM
Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Throwing from 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) has been throwing successfully from 90 feet, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez is progressing well and has increased his throwing distance from 60 to 90 feet recently. With a bullpen session in line for some time next week, Hernandez is drawing closer to a return. However, he is still without a formal timetable to take the mound in game action.

April 21, 2021 01:12 PM
Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Bullpen on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (biceps) will throw a bullpen session next week, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Hernandez has been ramping up his throwing program recently, and a bullpen session would mark a big step in his rehab process. The Marlins haven't yet established a timetable for Sanchez's return, but a better idea of his status could come into focus after his bullpen.
