Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Shifting rehab to Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) is scheduled to make his next rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma on Monday, Greg Johns of reports.

The outing could potentially be Hernandez's final one in the minors before being activated. The veteran right-hander was especially effective in his most recent appearance with Low-A Everett, recording eight strikeouts over four scoreless innings. The possibility of Hernandez rejoining the team during a six-game homestand that begins Aug. 23 will only get stronger if he impresses versus Triple-A bats in his upcoming start.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Stellar in latest rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) recorded eight strikeouts and allowed just one hit over four scoreless innings in Low-A Everett's win over Tri-City on Wednesday.

As his final line implies, Hernandez was in vintage form, albeit against a low level of competition. Nevertheless, it was encouraging to see such a dominant effort from Hernandez, who threw 38 of 51 pitches for strikes. Hernandez now has two scoreless rehab outings in four appearances down on the farm, and he's generated a 3.48 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and .171 BAA across 10.1 innings in the minors overall. Despite the quality of Wednesday's start, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports Hernandez is unlikely to be activated in order to fill an open spot in the Mariners' rotation this coming Saturday, with manager Scott Servais commenting that he'd like to see the veteran right-hander get through five innings in a rehab start before promoting him. Divish adds that Hernandez is likely to start next Monday for Triple-A Tacoma and then potentially make a spot start in place of Yusei Kikuchi (workload management) at the big-league level Aug. 24 on what would be a normal amount of rest.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Set for next rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) will make his next rehab start for short-season Everett on Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

As expected, Hernandez will take the mound for Everett this week after surrendering two runs on three hits over two innings for High-A Modesto against Inland Empire on Thursday. Following Wednesday's outing, he's expected to jump up to Triple-A Tacoma if all goes according to plan.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Next rehab start set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) will make his next rehab start with Low-A Everett at some point this coming week, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez made his most recent rehab start for High-A Modesto, but he'll come down a notch in competition for his next appearance. The right-hander is expected to make the leap all the way to Triple-A Tacoma following his forthcoming outing, but he'll need to demonstrate an ability to consistently get outs at the level just below the majors before activation is considered.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: To continue rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) is expected to need one or two more rehab starts before coming off the 60-day injured list, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez made it through Thursday's start at High-A Modesto without issue, firing 41 pitches over two innings of work. However, the Mariners will attempt to stretch the right-hander out during his remaining rehab outings. The team still hasn't announced which affiliate Hernandez will pitch for next.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Mixed bag in second rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) allowed two earned runs on three hits over two innings in High-A Modesto's win over Inland Empire on Thursday. He also recorded three strikeouts.

Hernandez ran into some trouble in his second rehab start, but he was able to work up to 41 pitches overall without any apparent physical issues. The right-hander still appears to be some time away from a return considering he's still facing hitters at the lower levels of the minors, and it remains to be seen if he'll be pushed up to at least the Double-A level for his next rehab outing.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Next rehab start set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) will make his next rehab outing Thursday with High-A Modesto, Greg Johns of reports.

It will be the second rehab start for Hernandez, and he is expected to throw about 45-50 pitches as he continues to rebuild his arm strength. The veteran right-hander figures to require a couple more games in the minors since he's been on the injured list for nearly three months.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Perfect in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) drew the start for Low-A Everett against Spokane on Friday and fired two perfect innings during which he recorded two strikeouts.

Hernandez unsurprisingly breezed through his outing, throwing 13 of his 20 pitches for strikes and inducing four groundouts among his six outs. It would have been worrisome had Hernandez struggled to any appreciable degree, considering the competition. It remains to be seen if he'll remain with the AquaSox for at least one more rehab appearance before moving his assignment to a higher level of the minors.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Rehab start scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) will make a rehab start with Low-A Everett on Friday, the Associated Press reports.

Hernandez has been ramping up for a rehab assignment for some time now, with the veteran right-hander most recently having thrown a live batting practice session last Sunday. Hernandez struggled with his velocity during that session, but the Mariners are apparently ready to test him in game action against a low level of competition.

July 29, 2019 10:44 AM
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners transferred Hernandez (lat) to the 60-day injured list Sunday.

Hernandez has been sidelined since mid-May with the lat injury, so his move from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL won't have any bearing on his recovery timeline. According to Greg Johns of, Hernandez threw a two-inning, 30-pitch live batting practice session Sunday, but Johns subsequently reported there wasn't much velocity on Hernandez's throws. Therefore, the timeline for a potential minor-league rehab assignment, and, by extension, a return to the Mariners, remains firmly up in the air.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Not starting rehab stint yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) will throw live batting practice Sunday instead of beginning a rehab assignment with High-A Everett, which was previously the plan, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez was expected to embark on a minor-league stint Sunday, but the Mariners have instead elected for the right-hander to fire at least one more bullpen before sending him out. How his side session unfolds will likely determine when his rehab assignment begins.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Cleared for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Low-A Everett on Sunday, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez has been cleared for game action after getting through a 22-pitch live BP session with no issues Thursday. The veteran right-hander will pitch two or three innings for Everett on Sunday in what will be the first of multiple rehab appearances. If everything goes as planned, Hernandez is hoping to rejoin the Mariners in time to make four or five starts before the end of the season.

July 25, 2019 06:16 PM
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Scheduled for live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Thursday, Greg Johns of reports.

After completing a pair of bullpen sessions with no issues over the past week, Hernandez has been cleared to face live hitters for the first time since being pulled off his rehab assignment in mid-June. Depending on how the veteran right-hander comes away from Thursday's live BP session, he could be cleared to restart a rehab assignment in the near future.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Throws successful bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Thursday that consisted of fastballs and changeups, Daniel Kramer of reports.

Hernandez's session reportedly went very well, with manager Scott Servais commenting that he'd received a good report about the right-hander's performance. Hernandez estimates he'll need at least one more bullpen session and then a simulated game before going on what will presumably be a multi-appearance rehab assignment.

July 17, 2019 01:28 AM
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Bullpen session date set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Greg Johns of reports.

Earlier reports had indicated Hernandez would throw a full bullpen session at some point this week, and the date has now been cemented. The right-hander encouragingly went through a late-June/early-July throwing program without issues after having to pause his rehab assignment in mid-June. The upcoming bullpen session could be the litmus test to determine if Hernandez is ready to jump back into action in a minor-league setting.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: To throw bullpen next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat strain) will throw a full bullpen session early next week, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

This is a good step in Hernandez's recovery. He has been out for two months and will not return until sometime in August if everything goes well.

July 8, 2019 04:48 PM
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Full bullpen session coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) plans to throw a full bullpen session incorporating all his pitches shortly after the Mariners reconvene following the All-Star break, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez's strained right lat apparently responded well after he tossed 10 pitches off a mound with minimal effort a few days ago, so he'll receive clearance to ratchet up the intensity of his throwing program within the next week. If the bullpen session goes well, Hernandez would then advance to facing hitters in live batting practice before the Mariners map out a minor-league rehab assignment or schedule of simulated-game appearances for the veteran. Since he's been on the shelf since mid-May, Hernandez probably won't be ready to come off the injured list until August, even if he steers clear of any further setbacks in his recovery.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Getting closer to bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) is slated to throw a bullpen session at some point this coming weekend, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez has regularly been playing catch without issue, and the most recent reports had him throwing at 90-to-100 feet. While King Felix had been expected to potentially wait until after the All-Star break to resume mound work, Johns' latest report indicates the veteran right-hander may get a head start on that step of his recovery.

July 3, 2019 02:24 PM
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Continues playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) is playing catch essentially every day and could resume mound work after the All-Star break, Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez resumed playing catch last week and is still in the process of building up his arm strength. The veteran right-hander appears to be at least a few weeks away from returning to the majors since there's currently no set date for a bullpen session.

July 1, 2019 11:16 AM
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Throwing at over 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (lat) has been playing catch almost every day in Seattle, and manager Scott Servais stated Sunday the reliever is throwing at "90-to-100 feet", Greg Johns of reports.

Hernandez took Sunday off from throwing, but he's been diligently at work otherwise. The veteran right-hander had to go back to square one recently after experiencing shoulder fatigue in a rehab outing for Triple-A Tacoma on June 15, which led to a pause in his rehab and an MRI that revealed no new injury. It remains to be seen if Hernandez's next step will be a bullpen session or whether the team will look to accelerate the pace considering he was already well past that point prior to his setback.
