Marlins’ Jose Fernandez all but untouchable at home


USA TODAY Sports

There must be something about the dirt on the mound at Marlins Park that Miami ace Jose Fernandez loves, because his numbers at home are bordering on unfathomable.

The 23-year-old right hander has not lost at home in during his entire career. You read that right.

Now, Fernandez’s has taken the mound at Marlins Park just 26 times during his injury shortened three-year career, but his numbers in those starts are dominating.

He is 17-0 in those 26 starts, pitching to a crazy low 1.40 ERA, a 0.901 WHIP in 167.2 innings pitched. That goes along with 192 strikeouts to just 44 walks.

However, that dominance hasn’t resulted in unders cashing. The Over is actually 15-10-1 in those 26 starts.

Fernandez makes his first start of the 2016 season at home Wednesday, when the Marlins host the Detroit Tigers in the second game of a three-game interleague set. Miami is currently a -159 favorite going up against Tigers’ right hander Anibal Sanchez.

The total is set at 7.0 runs.
