Don't look now, but Jose Fernandez is firing strikes again
Yep, Jose Fernandez is throwing again
In 2013, Jose Fernandez maintained a 2.19 ERA and MLB-best 5.9 H/9 mark over 28 starts on his way to a Rookie of the Year Award and a third-place finish in NL Cy Young voting. He was only 20.
To follow up that debut campaign, Fernandez started 2014 off with a 2.44 ERA and a 4-2 record over eight starts before undergoing season-ending arm surgery.
If you've been marking the days on your calendar properly, you'll know that pitchers and catchers for all 30 MLB teams have already reported to Spring Training to get ready for 2015, and that means that we're able to bring you this sight for sore eyes.
He's baaaaaaaaaaaaack. That's Fernandez throwing from flat ground at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., which means it's time for Marlins fans to get excited.
Well, maybe not that excited.
