Jose Fernandez To Make Two More Starts

Marlins_Jose_Fernandez_2013ATLANTA — At last, there is clarity on the shut down date for Jose Fernandez.

The energized Marlins’ rookie will make two more starts, and they won’t combine for more than 12 total innings. So, barring a poor outing, look for the 21-year-old to go six innings in each of those games.

Manager Mike Redmond said on Saturday afternoon that Fernandez is looking at a firm innings maximum of 170 innings. Actually, it will be 170 2/3 innings, because he right now is at 158 2/3 innings.
