The Marlins will shut down rookie right-hander Jose Fernandez after two more starts reports MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. Furthermore he will not be allowed to throw more than 12 total innings so unless Fernandez gets knocked out of a game early look for him to go six innings in each of the two remaining starts. Fernandez 21 has thrown 158 2/3 innings across 26 starts this season. Another dozen innings will get him to 170 2/3 after throwing 134 innings across two levels of Single-A ball last summer. Fernandez was a first round draft pick out of high school in 2011 and this is only his second full pro season. “That was the range as an organization that we felt comfortable leaving him around 150-170 depending on how many starts he did” said manager Mike Redmond to Frisaro. “It was kind of the unknown at the beginning of the season how he would do and how he would perform. We were looking at ways to protect him based on how many innings he had gone before. That's the number we came up with.”
