Fernandez (7-2) pitched seven innings, allowing just one run on six hits while walking one and striking 12 batters, the most since his first start of the season when he picked up 13 K's against the Tigers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fernandez has been lights-out this month, winning all five of his starts while allowing more than one run in just one of those outings. He's sporting a sweet 90:15 K:BB and a smooth 2.82 ERA through 10 starts. Fernandez will face arguably his toughest opponent of the season in his next outing on Tuesday against the Pirates.

Fernandez (6-2) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out nine over six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Nationals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fernandez gave up a run in the fourth inning to fall behind before the Marlins scored three times before his exit to earn him the victory. He's now held opponents to one or fewer runs in each of his last three outings to lower his ERA to 3.02. He'll make his next start Thursday at the Rays.

Fernandez (5-2) allowed just one run on four hits and three walks while striking out 11 in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Nationals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The one run that Washington did get across the plate was hardly Fernandez's fault, as Marcell Ozuna and Giarcarlo Stanton collided in the outfield to give Ryan Zimmerman an inside-the-park home run. Fernandez now has back-to-back outings with 11 strikeouts, giving him a fearsome 69:23 K:BB in 47.2 innings on the season to go along with a 3.21 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. His next start will be a repeat matchup at home against the Nats on Saturday.

Fernandez (4-2) shut out the Brewers over seven innings on Monday. He allowed four hits and walked four while striking out 11.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 11 strikeouts were the most he's had in a start since his first start of the year. Fernandez has had a little bit of trouble this season, due in part to his 20 walks in seven starts, but still owns a respectable 3.54 ERA. His next start comes Saturday against the Nationals.

Fernandez (3-2) pitched just five innings Wednesday against Arizona, but picked up the win despite allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out seven and walked a pair.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The strikeout rate continues to make Fernandez an appealing player to own, but his ratios remain weak because of inefficient starts like this. It took the 23-year-old flamethrower 99 pitches to get through those five frames, and he hasn't lasted longer than six in any start this year. On the bright side, the Marlins plan to limit Fernandez's innings this year; these short early outings could mean there's a better chance owners will still have him available during the fantasy playoffs.

Fernandez (2-2) struck out eight while limiting the Dodgers to two runs on five hits and three walks in six innings en route to a 5-3 win Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

In case you haven't heard, this kid -- still only 23 years old -- is pretty darn good. We haven't even seen the best of Fernandez yet this year, as some tough luck has led to an inflated 4.08 ERA, but his 1.94 FIP and whopping 40 strikeouts in 28.2 innings tell a truer story. Health permitting, there's no reason Fernandez shouldn't finish among the top 10 fantasy starters.

Fernandez suffered his second loss of the season Saturday versus the Giants, allowing four runs on three walks and seven hits in six innings. He struck out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 23-year-old delivered his first quality start of the season in his previous outing, but he was hittable Saturday and issued three or more walks for the third straight turn. The Giants only managed one extra-base hit off of Fernandez, so owners can take solace in the fact that he's not being squared up, but he will need to cut down on the free passes if he is to replicate his career WHIP of 1.02. He will look to rebound Thursday versus the Dodgers.

Fernandez (1-1) earned his first win of the season, holding the Nationals to one run in six innings. He allowed three hits and walked four while striking out nine.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Control has been an issue for Fernandez in his last two starts, as he's walked seven in his last 11 innings. With the worsening control, however, has come better results, as the righty has allowed just six hits and two runs over his last two starts. Fernandez carries a 3.78 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into his start this Saturday against the Giants.

Fernandez took a no-decision as he allowed one run on three hits and three walks in five innings Tuesday against the Mets. He struck out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fernandez induced 14 swinging strikes but his wildness outpaced his nastiness at times, leading to a pitch count of 90 after just five innings. The Marlins are unlikely to push him too hard during starts like these this season, and that's likely to cost him a few chances at wins this season, as it did Tuesday night.

Fernandez gave up five runs on five hits over 5.2 innings in a loss to the Tigers on Wednesday, but struck out 13 and only walked one batter.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The home loss was Fernandez's first in 27 career starts at Marlins Park. Former teammate Jarrod Saltalamacchia did most of the damage, as he hit a two-run home run in the second inning and followed it up with a two-run double in the top of the sixth. Fernandez still piled up the strikeouts, fanning seven batters via the curveball and falling just one strikeout shy of matching a career high.
