Felix Hernandez earns the win in slugfest

Felix Hernandez earned his second win of the season Wednesday night. Seattle hosted the Miami Marlins in what was an offensive game. Hernandez allowed four earned runs before being pulled with one out in the seventh. He struck out five but was victimized by the outfield core in Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez has been a bit of a mixed bag to start the season. He should continue to pitch deep into games while posting decent numbers across the board. Despite his age, Hernandez remains a solid option across all formats.

Felix Hernandez earns first victory this weekend against Rangers

Felix Hernandez pitched 7 1/3 solid innings against the Rangers on Friday night, allowing just one run on six hits while striking out three. Hernandez earned the victory to move to 1-1 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

The old King Felix is gone, but the new version is an extremely serviceable starter. Of all the encouraging signs for Felix, the best one is that he has yet to walk a batter in 18 innings pitched. Considering he was coming off a career-worst 9.9% walk-rate in 2016, Hernandez's control is a very good sign for his success in 2017. He'll take on the Marlins in his next start on Wednesday.

Felix Hernandez gives up two runs in outing

In three innings of work, Hernandez gave up four hits resulting in two earned runs. He struck out five.

Fantasy Impact

From 2014 to 2015 Hernandez's earned run average jumped almost a run and a half. In 2016 it increased once again to 3.83. He has dealt with injuries and velocity issues recently making him a very risky play.

He is 11-6 this season with a 3.61 ERA and will pitch in Houston on September 27 against the Astros.
