2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Fernandez turned in a dynamic age-19 season in 25 starts between Low-A Greensboro and High-A Jupiter, twirling his way to a 1.75 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 134 innings. The 2011 first-rounder is emerging as the Marlins' top minor league arm showing great command with plus strikeout ability throughout 2012. Fernandez works with a fastball in the 94-97 mph range, a solid changeup, and a put-away slider, which helped him to a 158:35 K:BB last season. The Cuban right-hander figures to start the year in Double-A for some additional seasoning in the minors, but if he continues to dominate, we just might see Fernandez toeing the rubber in Miami sooner rather than later.

2012

The Marlins nabbed Fernandez with the 14th overall pick in 2011, and while there are a couple of question marks around the youngster, Miami may have landed themselves a future ace. When he's on his game he's got the loose mechanics to generate fastballs in the 94-97 mph range, and he's flashed a nasty slider and the makings of a plus changeup to boot. He's got a big frame that should allow him to last deep into games, although he may have trouble with his weight, and there are rumblings that the Cuban defector may be a year or more older than his listed age. If the off-speed pitch never develops he'd still have a classic power relief profile, but there's room for optimism that he'll eventually be something more.
