Felix Hernandez pitched a complete game, allowing five hits, striking out nine batters, without allowing a run in the Mariners 2-0 victory over the Twins. Hernandez improved his record to 3-0 on the year.
Fantasy Impact: Hernandez lowered his ERA to 1.61 on the season, as he continues to display his dominance on the mound. The lone bright spot in the M's rotation, Hernandez is a must-start every time he steps onto the diamond.

He made it through five innings and the team is saying it was a precautionary move and that he is expected to make his next start against the Rangers on Saturday. He allowed eight hits, three runs, two walks and recorded one strikeout in the game against the Athletics today. (Source: Greg Johns on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: You can breathe a bit easier now that nothing serious occurred. Hernandez will not miss any time and continue having an outstanding year for his owners.
Felix Hernandez took the mound against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday and it did not go well. He lasted 2 2/3 innings allowing 6 runs on 6 hits. He also gave up two home runs, one walk, and struck out two.
Fantasy Impact: This is nothing to be worried about. Pitchers often times get hit hard in spring training as they are still working on pitches, location, building up endurance, etc. Feel comfortable making Hernandez the second starting pitcher off the board right after Clayton Kershaw.
