Analysis: Hernandez didn't look like the same pitcher earlier this season, and he hasn't been great since his injury either. He now has a 5.00 ERA on the road.

Hernandez struck out five, ending the game with a 5.04 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.

June 29 7:12 AM PT8:12 AM MT9:12 AM CT10:12 AM ET10:12 ET14:12 GMT22:12 7:12 AM MST9:12 AM EST9:42 AM VEN18:12 UAE9:12 AM CT-Felix Hernandez allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 6.0 innings as the Seattle Mariners lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Wednesday. Hernandez struck out five, ending the game with a 4.66 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hernandez's second start off the DL was much like his first, except for the fact he earned a win after permitting three runs over six innings against Houston last Friday. Though the former Cy Young winner has shown he can still keep the Mariners in games, his days as an elite fantasy pitcher seem to be dwindling.
Apr. 25 8:39 PM PT9:39 PM MT10:39 PM CT11:39 PM ET23:39 ET3:39 GMT11:39 8:39 PM MST10:39 PM EST11:09 PM VEN7:39 UAE (+1)10:39 PM CT-Making his first start since April 25, Hernandez improved to 3-2 after allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk in 6.0 innings as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Houston Astros 13-3 on Friday. Hernandez struck out six, ending the game with a 4.68 ERA and 1.56 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hernandez, who had been sidelined with right shoulder inflammation, did allow a pair of homers but turned in a decent performance in his return. The Mariners have been scoring runs in droves lately, so the former AL Cy Young winner should be a solid fantasy play as long as he can stay healthy.

Analysis: Hernandez struck out five and issued his first walk of 2017 to Giancarlo Stanton in the fifth inning, ending a streak of 22 1/3 innings to open the season. Hernandez also tied Freddy Garcia for most wins by a Venezuelan-born pitcher with 156. "I knew I didn't have my best stuff today but I was going to battle and stay in as long as I can," Hernandez said.

Apr. 9 8:46 AM PT9:46 AM MT10:46 AM CT11:46 AM ET11:46 ET15:46 GMT23:46 8:46 AM MST10:46 AM EST11:16 AM VEN19:46 UAE10:46 AM CT-Hernandez struck out six in six innings in his second start of the season, though he was reached for three runs and 10 hits while not getting a decision in the Mariners' loss to the Angels.
Analysis: The Seattle ace is 0-1 with a 4.09 ERA through his first two outings to help add to the notion that he's a pitcher on the downside of his career. Hernandez faces a longtime nemesis, the Texas Rangers, at home on Friday in his next start.
Apr. 5 10:03 AM PT11:03 AM MT12:03 PM CT1:03 PM ET13:03 ET17:03 GMT1:03 10:03 AM MST12:03 PM EST12:33 PM VEN21:03 UAE12:03 PM CT-Hernandez, who left Monday's start after the fifth inning with tightness in a groin, was still dealing with the problem Tuesday.
Analysis: However, he expects to take his next turn in the rotation.
Apr. 4 8:11 AM PT9:11 AM MT10:11 AM CT11:11 AM ET11:11 ET15:11 GMT23:11 8:11 AM MST10:11 AM EST10:41 AM VEN19:11 UAE10:11 AM CT-Hernandez allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six in five innings before leaving with tightness in a groin in Seattle's 3-0 opening-day loss to the Astros.

''It just got a little tight,'' he said. ''I'll be all right. I'm going to be OK.''
