Elieser Hernandez is scheduled to get an MRI on his injured lat on Wednesday.
Hernandez left Tuesday's start against the Blue Jays with right lat soreness. The 25-year-old will likely wind up on the injured list, which is a bummer for the developing starter. Hernandez gave up one run over two innings before departing Tuesday night.
Elieser Hernandez worked four innings on Wednesday against the Mets, receiving a no-decision by allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits while striking out seven.
Hernandez walked one and allowed two homers, which ultimately did him in. Miami wound up losing 5-4 in this one. Hernandez didn't have his best start in terms of run prevention, but he continues to strike out over a batter per inning. The 25-year-old now has 32 punchouts in 23 2/3 innings this season.
Elieser Hernandez picked up his first win of the season on Friday against the Nationals, limiting Washington to two runs on three hits over five innings pitched.
Hernandez struck out six and walked just one. Both runs he allowed came via solo homers. The 25-year-old now owns a 2.29 ERA through four starts, including 25 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Hernandez to pitch deep into games but he's absolutely worth streaming against the Mets next time out.

Hernandez didn't walk anyone as he lowered his ERA to 1.84 on the season. Miami ultimately lost this one 4-0 but Hernandez did what he had to do. The 25-year-old gets the Nationals in his next start. There's a case to be made for him as a streamer.
