Jose Fernandez impresses with Marlins rookie record 13 Ks

MIAMI-- Jose Fernandez appeared on the verge of his first major-league career complete game.

Fernandez sets single-game rookie club strikeout mark

At some point in his managerial tenure with the Marlins Mike Redmond won't struggle with decisions like the one he made Sunday. Jose Fernandez will trot in after the eighth at 97 pitches and the thought of him not going out for the ninth will be absurd. That day wasn't Sunday but it didn't detract from the 20-year-old Fernandez's latest jaw-dropping performance....

Jose Fernandez strikes out 13 as Marlins down Pirates

MIAMI (AP) Jose Fernandez had a team rookie record 13 strikeouts in a pitching duel with Gerrit Cole, and the Miami Marlins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday. Fernandez (7-5) allowed five hits and two runs in eight innings. The 20-year-old All-Star right-hander walked none and threw 97 pitches, 74 for strikes. Cole (5-4) was nearly as good.

Puig, Fernandez lead NL-heavy 'Rookie Watch'

For this year only, perhaps the Major League Baseball powers-that-be should abandon the concept of selecting Rookie of the Year recipients for the American and National leagues ... and just roll with two trophies for the best players regardless of affiliation. For whatever reason, the 2013 rookie chase is heavily slanted toward the Senior Circuit stars, so much that not a single...

Gerrit Cole and Jose Fernandez

Gerrit Cole and Jose Fernandez will face off this afternoon in Miami, in what has to be one of the more exciting matchups between young pitchers in 2013. Fernandez is just 20 years old and was the 14th pick in 2011 draft that Cole went #1 overall in. He's been excellent for the Marlins this year, striking out 111 batters in 111 2/3 innings. He's also unintentionally walked...

Could Red Sox sway Marlins to move Stanton?

It’s a day away from the non-waiver Trade Deadline and all appears quiet in Marlins camp. Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline is expected to come and go with little to no activity. Still you never know. Contending teams have been calling regularly on a number of core Miami players. They’re repeatedly told closer Steve Cishek is not available. Most likely that will be the stock...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals – Game 104

Yesterday’s loss wasn’t disappointing in my mind.  The Pirates didn’t necessarily lose the series yesterday, they lost it in game one.  There is no shame in losing to Jose Fernandez.  Henderson Alvarez on the other hand…. I heard a lot about how the Marlins are one of the best teams in baseball lately, how the…

Marlins Win the Battle of the Young Aces; Wandy and Snider Updates

Gerrit Cole was good today, but Jose Fernandez was better. (Photo Credit: David Hague) Gerrit Cole vs Jose Fernandez. That was the matchup today. One was a first overall pick in the 2011 draft. The other was taken 13 picks later. Both have progressed to the point where they look like they could be future number one starters. Unfortunately for the Pirates, Fernandez looks like he...

Game 103: Marlins 3 Pirates 2

There are plenty of ways to talk about this game; one is to say that the Pirates lost two of three to the Marlins, who are generally pretty terrible and have the NL's worst record. Another would be to point out that since June 8th, the Marlins are 23-19, which is the NL East's best record in that span. You can point to all of the strikeouts (13 at the hands of rookie Jose...
