SP,RP - MIA - IL60
The Marlins are placing starting pitcher Elieser Hernandez on the injured list Friday, according to MLB.com reporter Christina De Nicola on Twitter. Hernandez injured his quad running the bases on Thursday and had to leave the game.
Hernandez had only just been activated from the injured list, and now he is headed back there with a quad strain. And unfortunately for Hernandez, the Marlins, and fantasy managers, the injury sounds fairly significant. Hernandez underwent an MRI on Friday but does not currently have a timeline for a return.
Marlins pitcher Elieser Hernandez was removed from Thursday’s game against the Pirates in the top of the sixth inning with an apparent injury.
Hernandez pulled up while running from third base to home in the top of the sixth inning. He was helped off the field as a result. Hernandez returned Thursday from the 10-day injured list after missing the start of the season due to a biceps injury. The severity of Hernandez’s injury is unknown at this time and an update will be provided after the game. Hernandez allowed one run on three hits while striking out six across five innings before exiting.
The Marlins activated RHP Elieser Hernandez (biceps) to start on Thursday against the Pirates.
Hernandez missed two months with the injury. He struggled in his only big league start of the season, but the young righty had a 3.16 ERA in 2020. A wait-and-see approach is advised for now.
Marlins RHP Elieser Hernandez (biceps) is making his third rehab start on Friday for Triple-A Jacksonville.
Hernandez has been sidelined since April with his biceps injury. The expectation is that he could rejoin Miami's rotation in early June.
Elieser Hernandez (biceps) was transferred to the 60-day IL on Saturday.
Hernandez has been out since April 4th, so the move is procedural. He's scheduled to make a rehab start on Tuesday in Triple-A and return to action in the next couple of weeks if he doesn't suffer a setback. He was a solid sleeper pick in drafts, so he's worth stashing depending on league size.
