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. Hernandez won't be on the mound pitching. McClendon announced Wednesday that Hernandez won't pitch in Seattle's final series this weekend against Oakland, saying it wasn't worth the...

What Zack Greinke Learned from Felix Hernandez Exactly

Zack Greinke‘s changeup may only seem different this year. By the stats, it drops a bit more and it’s harder, sure. But if you ask the pitcher, the pitch itself hasn’t changed much. “I throw it more this year,” he said when I asked him what was different about it. If the systems have the change dropping more this year — estimates run from about a half inch to an inch...

It was another ‘Happy Felix Day’ on Sunday for the Mariners as Seattle won the rubber match of their three game series in Texas, but for Felix Hernandez, not everything went exactly according to plan. He pitched fine going 5.2 innings giving up two runs on four hits while striking out five and walking five, but what ended his outing may have been a little concerning. Felix left...

His haute collection is so large that it cannot be held in the multiple closets of his homes in Seattle and his native Venezuela. And he loves every single item. ''I will tell you this, the one in...

Felix Hernandez messes with Adrian Beltre after flyout (Video)

Felix Hernandez had a funny exchange with ex-teammate Adrian Beltre after the current Texas Ranger flied out during an at-bat against him on Thursday. Hernandez threw eight scoreless innings in Seattle’s 5-0 win, and he held Beltre hitless. In the fourth, Beltre sent a ball to deep right-center, but in spacious Safeco Field, it was just a long out. Hernandez appeared to joke with...

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...

Is Felix Hernandez Hurting?

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. We already know what kind of pitcher Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez is. The 2010 American League Cy Young winner is arguably the best right-handed pitcher in all of baseball and is one of the most dependable arms of his generation.

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...
