Found May 12, 2014 on Rumors and Rants:
Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez has been phenomenal since breaking into the big leagues last season. The hard-throwing righty has dominated opposing hitters and had become one of baseball’s best pitchers. But now Fernandez has landed on the disabled list with a sprained right elbow and the prognosis doesn’t look good. Fernandez has undergone two MRIs on the injured elbow and a source tells us that Tommy John surgery is “very likely” going to be the end result for the 21-year-old. Meanwhile, Ken Rosenthal tweeted that a source told him “This isn’t promising” as well. Fernandez was the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year after he posted a 12-6 record, with a 2.19 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP and 187 strikeouts, with just 111 hits allowed in 172.2 innings. He made 28 starts as a rookie and had continued that excellent form in eight starts this season. So far in 2014 he has posted a 4-2 record with a 2.44 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP, and 70 strikeouts against 36 hits and 13 walks in 51.2 innings. In his...
