Potentially tragic news out of Bellevue, Washington, as according to CBS Sports “Eye on Baseball” writer Dayn Perry and a tweet from Seattle Times Mariners beat reporter Geoff Baker, the home of former American League Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez caught fire on Monday evening.  Here’s the Tweet along with a follow up (via @gbakermariners): Felix Hernandez’s house is on fire. Bellevue Fire Dept. is on the scene. pic.twitter.com/EWzHBKxd5k — Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) November 5, 2013 Here is a prior photo of Felix Hernandez’s home from the internet. Clearly, the same place shown in fire photo. http://t.co/YOapWwoc7t — Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) November 5, 2013 No reports of injuries or foul play, although this is breaking news and surely in the hours and days to come, more details will be provided. Credit: CelebrityDetective.com Felix Hernandez finished a lackluster (by his standards) 2013 campaign at 12-10 with a 3.04 E.R.A.  In his eight full seasons in the big leagues, he has recorded 30 starts or more in all of them and been named to 4 of the last 5 All Star teams (ironically not named in 2010 when he one his Cy Young).  The 27-year-old Venezuelan native has played his entire career in Seattle and is signed through 2019 at $22M or more each season going forward. - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Report: Seattle Mariners Felix Hernandez house catches on fire appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
