News: The Seattle Mariners are giving starters Hisashi Iwakuma and Hernandez an extra day of rest and will start Erasmo Ramirez on Tuesday against the New York Mets. Impact: 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.(STATS, 8:46pm)

News: Hernandez will have his next start pushed back one day to Friday, the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Impact: Both Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma will move back a day, leaving a vacancy in the rotation Wednesday. The Mariners are yet to announce who will fill the void. In three July starts, Hernandez is 1-0 with a 1.57 ERA and 26 strikeouts.(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez dominated the Angels on Saturday, allowing an unearned run in seven innings on two hits and four walks with nine strikeouts. Impact: The only trouble Hernandez found himself in all night was sparked by an 11-pitch at-bat to Albert Pujols that resulted in a lead-off walk in the seventh inning. The battle tired him, and he walked the next batter as well. An infield single and an error scored the unearned run. Hernandez then got two groundouts and a strikeout to end the threat, but his night was done at 114 pitches (74 strikes) with no decision. It's just the second time this season he has walked four in a game, and the first time since Aug. 17 last season (26 starts) that he walked back-to-back batters. Hernandez tied Mike Scott (1986) with his 12th consecutive start of at least seven innings with two earned runs or less. Only Tom Seaver with 13 in 1971 has more.(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez will start the second game after the All-Star break Saturday against the Angels, the Seattle Times reports. Impact: Hisashi Iwakuma will take the second-half opener, and Chris Young and Roenis Elias will follow Hernandez. The fifth spot is to be determined but likely will be Taijuan Walker. The AL All-Star Game starter, Hernandez had a dominating first half, finishing second in the majors to Adam Wainwright in ERA (2.12) and first in FIP (2.13). He has made 11 consecutive starts of at least seven innings with two earned runs or less, the longest streak for an AL pitcher since Gaylord Perry in 1974. The only longer streaks were by Tom Seaver (13, 1971) and Mike Scott (12, 1986).(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez will start Tuesday night's All-Star game for the American League and Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals will open for the National League. Impact: Hernandez, the first Venezuela pitcher to start for the All-Stars, is 11-2 with a 2.12 ERA. He is just the second Seattle pitcher to start an All-Star game following Randy Johnson in 1995 and 1997.(STATS, 1:17pm)
Sat. July 12, 2014
News: Hernandez threw eight dominant innings to beat Oakland 3-2 on Friday. Impact: Hernandez allowed two runs and six hits while striking out nine. He's yielded two runs or fewer in 11 consecutive outings to lower his ERA to 2.12.(STATS, 3:37pm)
Fri. July 11, 2014
News: Hernandez threw eight strong innings Friday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in a win against the A's. He appeared to be limping near the end of his start, and the issue was a small cramp, according to Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune. Impact: Hernandez gave up both runs (one on a solo homer) and three hits in the first inning. Over the next seven innings, only five batters reached, with just one making it into scoring position. The first-inning homer was just the sixth of his career on an 0-2 count. Hernandez threw 73 of 101 pitches for strikes and induced 10 groundouts. He's allowed no more than two runs in 17 of his 20 starts this season and closes a dominating first half in the top two of nearly every pitching stat in the AL. He leads the majors in innings pitched (144.1) and quality starts (18) and set a franchise record for the lowest first-half ERA (2.12). Next up is likely starting the All-Star Game.(RotoWire, )

News: Hernandez struck out eight and yielded two runs and three hits over eight innings of Saturday's 3-2 win over the White Sox, though he didn't receive a decision. Impact: Hernandez is 6-1 with a 1.40 ERA over his last 10 starts, striking out 85 in 77 innings.(STATS, 4:07pm)
Sun. July 6, 2014
News: Hernandez has been pushed back a day to Friday's series opener against AL West-leading Oakland. Impact: Hernandez's next turn was slated for Thursday, but manager Lloyd McClendon says he wants his best pitcher going up against the A's. McClendon says ''It just made sense.'' Hernandez pitched eight solid innings in Seattle's 3-2 victory against the White Sox on Saturday. 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. (STATS, 1:23pm)
