Fernandez's next start has been pushed to Monday against the Mets, the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move will afford Fernandez and extra day of rest while opening up a rotation spot for Adam Conley to return from the DL on Sunday. Assuming the Marlins don't shut Fernandez down after Monday's start, he'll line up for a two-start week next week with a final start coming next weekend against the Nationals.

Fernandez (16-8) threw eight brilliant innings Tuesday against the Nationals, striking out 12 while allowing just three hits and no runs.

EDGE Analysis

Fernandez carried a one-hitter into the eighth inning Monday, earning his 16th win of the year. The Marlins needed every bit of the stellar start, as their offense mustered just three hits and one run against Tanner Roark and the Nationals. Fernandez now has 253 strikeouts in 182.1 innings on the year, trailing only Max Scherzer. That represents nearly a threefold increase over the 64.2 innings he threw last year after returning from Tommy John surgery midseason, so there is some concern the Marlins will shut down their ace to avoid risking injury now that they have been officially eliminated from playoff contention.

Fernandez (15-8) pitched seven innings, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three Braves in Wednesday's win.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't vintage Fernandez, but the 24-year-old gave his team seven solid innings. The Marlins' ace didn't lock in until the third frame after allowing a single to Freddie Freeman. Matt Kemp then blistered a line drive that Dee Gordon snared at second, and he was able to double-up Freeman at first. From there, Fernandez didn't allow another hit all night. Entering the night, Fernandez led the majors with a 12.8 K/9, but he finished with just three Wednesday, marking the first time in 28 starts he had fewer than five.

Fernandez (14-8) threw seven innings of shutout ball Friday, picking up a win and spoiling Clayton Kershaw's return to the Dodgers. He allowed three hits and three walks striking out 14.

EDGE Analysis

Though Kershaw's return was the story of the night, Fernandez stole the spotlight and again showed why he is a top-flight fantasy starter. After being touched up for six earned runs in his last start, the Marlins ace struck out 14 batters, tying a career high, in a dominating performance against the Dodgers. He now has 238 strikeouts on the season to go with a 2.90 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. His 167.1 innings thrown remain a concern, but it appears he will continue to start as long as Miami is in the playoff hunt.

Fernandez's season could be cut short out of Wild Card contention, the Marlins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fernandez has already pitched 160.1 innings this season and the club would like to cap his workload a year removed from Tommy John surgery. Miami has a plan in place should the team continue the push for the playoffs but manager Don Mattingly indicated that the club may shut him down if they continue to slip. For now, Fernandez will continue to start normally, with his next scheduled outing coming Friday against the Dodgers and their ace, Clayton Kershaw.

Fernandez (13-8) was torched for seven runs in 5.2 innings by Cleveland on Saturday, surrendering 12 hits and two walks while striking out five.

EDGE Analysis

This disastrous outing was the latest iteration of the inconsistencies that have plagued Fernandez's 2016 season. After not allowing a run in his previous two starts, he was shelled early and often Saturday night, while his season ERA ballooned to 3.09. The task of proving himself to be a consistent top-flight starter this season has been challenging.

Fernandez (13-7) threw seven scoreless innings and allowed six hits and two walks while striking out nine and earning the win against the Royals on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Fernandez bounced back from his shortest outing of the season his last time out, dominating the Royals on Wednesday. With the start, Fernandez snapped out of a recent rough stretch in which he posted a 6.00 ERA over his last four starts, dropping his ERA to 2.91 on the season. Fernandez continues to mow down hitters at a historic rate, and his 12.9 K:9 rate would be the third best single-season K:9 rate among qualifying starting pitchers in MLB history. Fernandez will take the hill next against the Mets on Monday.

Fernandez (12-7) pitched four innings and allowed five runs on seven hits while striking out six and walking one during Thursday's loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Fernandez's ERA shot up over three to 3.05 after Thursday's drubbing. It was the phenom's shortest start of the season and his lowest strikeout total since May 31. Regardless, the 24-year-old is in the midst of another wonderful season and could have a shot at the Cy Young award.
