Fernandez has been shut down from throwing after experiencing right elbow discomfort, Wells Dusenbury of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Fernandez is headed for further evaluation following this setback. He underwent Tommy John surgery in April of 2018 and had progressed to live batting practice prior to feeling discomfort in his repaired elbow. Fernandez is currently without a timetable for his return.
Fernandez (elbow) will throw a live 20-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
This is another good sign for Fernandez, who tossed a side session earlier in the week. He'll get his first look at live hitters since undergoing Tommy John surgery just over a year ago.
Fernandez (elbow) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session in Florida on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery in April in 2018 and took a big step forward Monday by making it through a brief side session. Although he likely has at least a few months left of rehab, this is a good sign for the right-hander, who figures to toss at least a few more bullpen sessions before advancing to facing live hitters.
The Marlins placed Fernandez (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
A November waiver pickup, Fernandez was already expected to be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season while continuing to recover from April 2018 Tommy John surgery. The move to the 60-day IL confirms that Fernandez still has a ways to go in his rehab, which could extend through the All-Star break. Since the 23-year-old was previously a Rule 5 selection of the Giants last winter before sitting out 2018 following the elbow injury, he'll have to stick on Miami's active roster once activated from the IL or get offered back to the Rockies, the organization that originally signed him as an amateur free agent in 2012.
The Marlins claimed Fernandez (elbow) off waivers from the Giants on Monday.
The Giants declined to add the 23-year-old back to their 40-man roster earlier this month while he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery, which prevented him from pitching at any level in 2018. Considering Fernandez underwent the elbow procedure last spring, he should be available to pitch again at some point in 2019, though he'll almost certainly be stashed on the Marlins' 10- or 60-day disabled list to begin the campaign. Because the Giants previously poached Fernandez from the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft last winter, the Marlins will have to keep the right-hander on the roster throughout the season or offer him back to Colorado. Fernandez didn't accrue any MLB service time while the Giants kept him on the DL all of last season.
Fernandez will have Tommy John surgery, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Tommy John surgery was an expected outcome for Fernandez after he was diagnosed with a sprained UCL on Tuesday. A Rule 5 selection in December, Fernandez will now miss the entire 2018 season and a good portion of 2019 as well.
Fernandez (elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL on Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
He was already on the 10-day DL with a UCL sprain, but the Giants moved him to the 60-day DL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gregor Blanco. Fernandez is in danger of missing all of the 2018 season if Tommy John surgery is needed.
Fernandez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained UCL, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
This is a tough break for the Rule 5 pick, who could now be facing Tommy John surgery. Fernandez will head for a second opinion Thursday.
Fernandez (finger) allowed four runs on two hits and two walks while failing to record an out Monday against the Royals.
Fernandez was slowed by a finger laceration earlier in the month, but he returned to action Monday after taking a few days off to let the cut heal. His Cactus League debut didn't quite go as planned, however, as the 22-year-old Rule 5 pick allowed all four batters he faced to reach base before getting the hook. Fernandez should still get plenty of chances to prove he deserves a spot in the Giants' Opening Day bullpen, but he could ultimately be left off the team's 25-man roster and offered back to the Rockies if his spring struggles continue.
Fernandez suffered a cut to the index finger on his right hand and was unable to complete his scheduled bullpen session Sunday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Fernandez throws from the right side, so the Giants will give him a few days for the cut to heal before he steps back on the mound. The Rule 5 pickup hasn't pitched above the Low-A level, but his 100 mile-per-hour fastball could entice the Giants into keeping him on the big-league roster all season.
