News: Hernandez pitched 5.1 shutout innings in his final start of the season Sunday, allowing one hit and no walks with seven strikeouts in a win against the Angels. Impact: Hernandez was cruising along but was pulled shortly after the Mariners were eliminated from the playoff race thanks to an A's win. His only hit allowed was a broken-bat single. Hernandez finished the year with a 15-6 record in 34 starts. In his 13 games without a decision, Hernandez posted a 1.88 ERA while the Mariners totaled a mere 20 runs of support. Hernandez's 2.14 ERA is tops in the AL, second only to Clayton Kershaw's 1.77 ERA in all of baseball. He also led the AL in WHIP (0.92), BAA (.200) and QS (27) and finished in the top five in IP (236), strikeouts (248), K:BB (5.39), K/9 (9.46), G/F (1.35) and FIP (2.62).(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez's ERA dropped from 2.34 to 2.18 on Saturday when a scoring change resulted in four fewer earned runs from his last start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, the Associated Press reports. Impact: Hernandez failed to field a bunt during a seven-run fifth inning, which was called a hit by the official scorer. MLB Executive Vice President Joe Torre changed the decision to an error Saturday, making the final four runs of the inning unearned. Hernandez has one start left this season, Sunday against the Angels, to win the AL ERA title. Chris Sale leads the league with a 2.17 ERA.(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez gave up eight runs, seven hits, walked three and boosted his career-high strikeout total to 241 over 4 2-3 innings Tuesday. Impact: Hernandez likely won't make his postseason debut this year after he got his butt kicked by the Jays.(STATS, 6:10pm)

News: Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon expects Hernandez to start Sunday against the Angels, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "That could change, but as we speak now, I fully expect him to pitch," McClendon said Wednesday. Impact: Hernandez turned in his worst start of the year Tuesday, giving up eight runs in just 4.2 innings against Toronto, the same number of runs he'd given up in his previous five starts combined. However, with the M's still mathematically alive for the second AL wild card spot, McClendon expects to start the right-hander in the regular-season finale. He'll make his final case to fend off Chris Sale and Corey Kluber for the AL Cy Young award.(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez couldn't make it out of the fifth inning Tuesday as he was charged with eight runs on seven hits and three walks in 4.2 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out four. Impact: Hernandez looked good heading into the fifth inning with a 2-1 lead, but the wheels came off quickly, and most of it was his own doing in a 43-pitch inning. He gave up a solo homer, double and three walks and mishandled a sacrifice bunt that put a runner on. Two of his runs scored came after he left (one on a hit batter). The Mariners, who are now three games out of the second wild card, have been outscored 42-10 in their last four games.(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out 11 on Thursday against the Los Angeles Angels but did not get a decision in a 3-1 win. Impact: The AL Cy Young Award candidate, 14-5 with a 2.07 ERA, is making a strong case with his performances this month. He's 1-0 with a 0.96 ERA in four starts in September.(STATS, 5:21pm)

News: Hernandez pitched seven shutout innings Thursday, allowing three hits and two walks with 11 strikeouts but received zero run support for no decision against the Angels. Impact: A night after clinching the division, the Angels fielded a Triple-A lineup that never challenged Hernandez. But walking two against a lineup with seven recent callups is questionable. Far worse than that, though, the Mariners couldn't get past second base in the first six innings against two pitchers who entered with a combined 51 innings this season, depriving Hernandez of what easily should have been his 15th win. After a slight blip in late August, Hernandez has allowed only three runs in his last four starts. It was his sixth double-digit strikeout game as he set a career high with 236 strikeouts this season.(RotoWire, )
