First impression: Mariners’ Felix Hernandez looks new and improved

PEORIA, Ariz. — Despite the rain Sunday, I was able to check in on what was No. 1 on the priority list to watch in spring training: Felix Hernandez. Felix and the other members of pitching “Group 2” were able to throw their bullpen sessions.

How Much Hope Is Appropriate for Felix Hernandez?

Felix Hernandez looks like a new man. He’s created a new self because he wants to more closely resemble his old self, the self that ranked consistently among the best pitchers in baseball. There are many different ways to tell the story of his decline, but I could note that he was most recently a one-win pitcher, where he used to be a six-win pitcher. The season before last, he...

We’ve Never Seen This Felix Hernandez

I recognize that this is a sensitive subject at a lousy time. I mean, the Mariners are winning, winning on a fairly sustained basis, and Felix Hernandez owns a lower ERA than Stephen Strasburg and Noah Syndergaard.
