Player Notes
Jose Fernandez provided a quality start in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Giants, hurling six innings of three-run ball.

Advice: Fernandez was making his first start in 13 months, having been sidelined by Tommy John surgery in May of 2014. It went very well. He struck out six without walking a batter and added a home run to boot. Facing off with Matt Cain to lead off the frame, he launched a solo bomb to help his own cause. It was his second career homer. For his career (pitching division), he holds a 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 innings. Perhaps the best sign for Fernandez here is that he did not walk a Giant in the contest. Control tends to be an issue for pitchers coming off of long lay-offs, as they work to refine their location. Up next for the 22-year-old right-hander, a trip to Fenway to face off with the Red Sox.

Marlins activated RHP Jose Fernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: Fernandez is ready to rock again, 13 months after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 22-year-old right-hander showed promising signs on his five-start minor league rehab assignment and needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues for what should be an exciting and productive second half of the 2015 season. Fernandez owns a remarkable 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 career major league innings. He's starting Thursday at home against the Giants.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) allowed six hits and four runs over five innings Saturday in his final rehab start for Double-A Jacksonville.

Advice: He took the loss but the Marlins have to be encouraged by the eight strikeouts he recorded. The former NL Rookie of the Year is in line to start Thursday's game against the Giants. Fernandez needs to be owned in all formats.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) allowed one run over seven innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab start with High-A Jupiter.

Advice: Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Fernandez threw a total of 90 pitches and allowed four hits and one walk while striking out nine batters. He now has a 3.20 ERA and 25/4 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings over four rehab outings. The plan calls for him to make his final rehab start on June 27 with Double-A Jacksonville before making his return to the Marlins on July 2 against the Giants.
