Felix Hernandez was simply dominant on Sunday afternoon as he threw eight scoreless innings in a victory over the Brewers. He gave up four hits, a walk, and racked up nine strikeouts. The 2010 Cy Young Award winner improved to 12-5 on the season, and 7-1 over his last 13 starts. With the win, Hernandez is now 3-0 in four starts against the National League this year. He has pitched at least seven innings in each start, and hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in any Interleague game this season. Hernandez had a rare non-quality start in his last outing, but was able to bounce back on Sunday. Hernandez will take an AL-leading 2.28 ERA into his next start against the Rangers on Saturday in Texas.
Its been weeks of people asking questions regarding whether or not Carlos Gonzalez would be placed on the disabled list with a sprain of his right middle finger. On Wednesday, the Rockies finally made that decision and placed Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list. Now that he is sidelined, the question is for how long. Its possible that Cargo may miss a month or more for the finger to fully heal. The next question will be whether or not the Rockies should bring Gonzalez back at all this year. The Rockies are not nowhere close to being in contention and with the risk of re-injury, fantasy owners may just waive goodbye to Cargo until 2014.
