Mariners shut down Hernandez for rest of season

SEATTLE -- The only way Felix Hernandez is seeing the field for the final weekend of the regular season is if Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon suddenly decides to let his ace right-hander be a hitter.

Felix Hernandez, Adrian Beltre have some words after flyout (video)

Felix Hernandez and Adrian Beltre are MLB veterans and they don’t shy away from on-field banter. But they have fun when doing so. When the Mariners and Rangers squared off on Thursday afternoon, Beltre had some words for Hernandez after a flyout. King Felix played right back, and basically told him to go back to the dugout. It’s hard to figure out exactly what Beltre said, but...

How much did Felix Hernandez solve?

Wednesday was a pretty good day for starting-pitcher redemption. Most visibly, Justin Verlander came a few outs from no-hitting the Angels, calling attention to the fact that it looks like he’s back on track. In Chicago, Rick Porcello returned to the Red Sox and spun seven shutout innings, after entering with an ERA near 6. And Felix Hernandez turned in an effective outing at home...

Felix Hernandez’s Son Already Has Fastball Like His Father’s (Video)

The apple didn’t fall very far from the flame-throwing tree in the Hernandez family.

Felix Hernandez’s Friday night to forget

Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez put up an all-time stinker on Friday night against the Houston Astros, yielding eight runs in just one-third of an inning. It was so bad that the Mariners had to use a position player on the bump to close out a game the Astros ended up winning 10-0. But how bad was it? In a six-pitch sequence that ran the former Cy Young winner from the mound...

Seattle Mariners: Starting rotation blues

It’s been a sluggish start to the season for the Seattle Mariners, coming out of the gates at 5-8.  For a team with high expectations in the preseason, it’s a little surprising.  What’s more surprising though than the slow start is the performance of the starting rotation.  Going into the third week of the season, only one starter has won a game.  Felix Hernandez, who has...

Seattle Mariners rumors: Cespedes, Cruz, Kemp

Hanley Ramirez is out of the equation, as is (now) former third-baseman Pablo Sandoval. Both are now heading to Boston to be members of the Red Sox. As for the Seattle Mariners, the key targets in this year’s free agency pool remain the same: Yoenis Cespedes, Nelson Cruz and Matt Kemp. All three would presumably bring the much-needed component of power to the Mariners lineup. And...

Seattle Mariners open huge home series vs. A’s

It’s September 12th, and, to the relief and perhaps surprise of Seattle Mariners fans, they will be playing a very meaningful series this weekend.  For the last time this season, the Mariners will play the Oakland A’s.  The A’s still own the first Wild Card in the American League, but their lead has been trimmed down to 1.5 games over Seattle.  It is possible with a Mariners...
