Jose Fernandez Has Right Shoulder Stiffness

Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez is suffering from shoulder stiffness and has flown back to Miami to see a doctor, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Hearld.  It’s too early to think it’s anything serious, but you have to think the Marlins will consider sitting their young star for a few weeks.

This is another big loss for the Marlins, who are already without Giancarlo Stanton and Henderson Alvarez.  The team is 43-67 and tied for the worst record in baseball with the Phillies and it doesn’t look like they’ll turn it around anytime soon.

Fernandez, 22, has posted a 2.30 ERA and a WHIP of 1.02 in 43 innings this season.  He also has a 11.1 per nine inning strikeout rate.  The righty has only pitched 94 2/3 innings the past two years and has struggled with injuries since making his major league debut.
