Marlins Injury Update: Jose Fernandez throws for first time since surgery

By on 10/01/2014 06:30:00 PM

The Miami Marlins finished the 2014 season with a record of 77-85, fourth in the National League East. They finished in the middle of the pack in both runs scored and ERA. Significant injuries to Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Fernandez hindered any hopes for a push in the division. The good news on Fernandez is that he threw for the first time since undergoing surgery on his right elbow.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on September 19 that Fernandez, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery in May, saw doctors and they have have cleared him to start a throwing program as early as the beginning of October.

Clark Spencer, who covers the Marlins for the Miami Herald, tweeted the following update on Fernandez.
Fernandez pitched in only eight games this past season and finished with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 2.44. He allowed only 36 hits and walked 13 in 51 2/3 innings, while striking out 70. In 36 career starts covering two seasons, Fernandez has a record of 16-8 with 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 innings and an ERA of 2.25.
