Felix Hernandez promoted to Double A

First bad outing this year for Felix. Might be a sign that he is facing better competition and has thrown a lot of innings for a kid so young. Maybe give him another start to finish the year off on a good note, but then they need to shut him down.

BTW why do you want to see the kid choke? Seems like a pretty immature thing to say.

Felix bounced back after his worst start of the year with a pretty solid game.

6IP 4H 1ER 2BB 5K

I don't expect him to pitch to much more as the M's don't want to over work him since he is so young. Maybe a couple more starts and that will be it.

I'd say there is a very real chance he could be up near the end of next year. If not then, (not taking into account injuries) defiantly up in 2006.

Only thing really holding him back to much is his age and needing more experience in the minors. Of his 6 starts in Double A, 5 have been great with only 1 being bad. To think, he hasn't been allowed to throw his 90 mph slider yet. The kid is just going to get better and better.

I don't know how many of you read Baseball America, but the most recent issue (on newsstands now) has a great article on Felix.

With regards to teh question as to when he'll reach the big leagues, Seattle's VP of player development and scouting said "...the ideal circumstance with Felix is that he finishes the year in Double-A and begins next year in Triple-A...How much Triple-A experience does he get? I don't know. He may pitch so well that he forces us to put him on the big league club."

The article also talks about the fact that they have an inning limit in mind for Felix but aren't telling him what it is, though I would guess that he only starts one or two more games. Another interesting tidbit is that he is under control to Venezuela's Lara Cardinals, so he may pitch again this winter, though probably not much.

There basically hasn't been a pitching prospect like Felix Hernandez since Dwight Gooden in 1983. It's hard not to be excited about the kid even if you aren't a Mariners fan. I just hope for his sake and the Mariners and baseballs that he stays healthy. His potential is unlimited.

Felix's AA numbers after yesterdays game:

W-L (4-1) 52.1IP 44H 20ER 19BB 50K - 3.44 ERA 1.20 WHIP

I guess it's alright for an 18 year old that won't be 19 till after the start of next years season ;-7

Well since his season is over, I figured I'd post his stats for 2004

Double A:

W-L (5-1) 3.30 ERA | 57.1 IP | 47 H | 21 ER | 21 BB | 58 K


High A:

W-L (10-3) 2.60 ERA | 97 IP | 91 H | 28 ER | 29 BB | 122 K


You could argue the point that he possibly could start next year in Triple A. Though since he is so young, it might be in his best interest to start him off in Double A. Then, once he shows AA is as easy as High A was this year, go and promote him up.
