Fernandez starts off series at Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES — In his last start, Jose Fernandez gave a glimpse of what the future may look like.
The 20-year-old sensation struck out nine and allowed one hit over seven shutout innings while collecting his first big league win. The impressive outing last Sunday against the Phillies was a reminder of why Fernandez is so highly regarded.
In six big league starts, Fernandez has 32 strikeouts in 31 innings.
On Friday night, the rookie takes the mound in the series opener at the Dodgers.
The Marlins are looking to get back on the winning track after they were swept in three games at San Diego. Los Angeles has dropped seven straight. The Dodgers are starting Matt Magill.
