Hernandez, who allowed four runs in six innings Tuesday in his second start since coming off the disabled list, said his mechanics are still rusty after being out nearly two months, the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez struggled with his command in the first three innings before settling down. "I didn't have any feel with my pitches," he said. "I had no curveball, slider was OK, changeup was up, fastball was up. It's what you get when you've been out for a long time." Hernandez he did not have any issues with his previously injured calf and it's just a matter of pitching more. "I feel fine," he said. "I've got no problems at all. I just have to get out of the middle of the plate. I just need to pitch a little bit more and I'll be better."

Hernandez (5-4) earned a win Tuesday against the Pirates, allowing four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez allowed four runs in the first two innings, but eventually settled down and quieted the Pirates as his teammates supplied seven runs between the second and fourth innings. While the nine hits and three strikeouts aren't exactly dominant numbers, Hernandez was able to work six innings for the second consecutive start since returning from a calf injury. Though King Felix's ERA sits at a respectable 3.45, his 6.9 K:9 is a career low, giving fantasy owners some cause for concern in his age-30 season.

Fresh off being activated from the DL, Hernandez (calf) pitched 6.2 innings, allowing five runs on ten hits and two walks while striking out just two hitters in a no-decision Wednesday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the unattractive stat line, Hernandez looked solid in his return from a strained calf. He threw 68 of his 94 pitches for strikes, including first-pitch strikes to 23 of the 32 hitters he faced. Most of the damage came from a three-run blast by Todd Frazier in the first as King Felix was shaking off the rust. The Mariners' ace will look to build off Wednesday's outing when he travels to Pittsburgh for his next start.

Hernandez (calf) tossed 5.2 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday. He allowed one run on five hits and posted a 7:1 K:BB in the game.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez was knocked around in his first rehab start Sunday, but he was much better in Friday's outing, and more importantly did not report any setbacks. Hernandez should be good to go after throwing 75 pitches Friday, and is on track to rejoin the Mariners' rotation Wednesday against the White Sox.

Hernandez (calf) confirmed Wednesday that he will head to short-season Everett for a rehab start Sunday, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

EDGE Analysis

He threw a simulated game Wednesday, and apparently made it through without any setbacks, allowing for the rehab start this weekend. Hernandez is then scheduled to pitch next Friday for Triple-A Tacoma and then join the big league rotation on July 20 against the White Sox, provided his two rehab outings go as planned.

Hernandez (calf) will throw a 45-pitch simulated game Wednesday in Houston, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Hernandez feels fairly normal after the simulated game, he could be on tap to head out to short-season Everett for a rehab assignment Sunday. The Mariners are hopeful to have Hernandez back in the rotation shortly after the All-Star break concludes. The calf strain has kept the ace confined to the DL since June 1.

Hernandez (calf) will make two rehab starts before coming off the disabled list, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Seattle's ace is set to throw a bullpen session Friday before progressing to a simulated game next week when the Mariners travel to Houston for a series with the Astros. The question was whether he'd be back before the All-Star break, but Divish's report essentially confirms that Hernandez won't be back on a big league mound until after the All-Star break.
