Analysis: Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that he will give the main arms in his pitching staff extra rest when he can. Hernandez has pitched 12 straight starts going at least seven innings and giving up two earned runs or less. It's the longest streak in the American League since 1970.

The right-hander, who won the AL Cy Young Award in 2010, is 7-1 with a 1.72 ERA in his past 11 starts.
