Felix Hernandez returning to Mariners’ rotation

Felix Hernandez

Felix Hernandez’s absence from the Seattle Mariners’ rotation was short-lived.

An injury to ace James Paxton means Hernandez will be back in the rotation and is set to start Monday against the Houston Astros.

Paxton was hit by a line drive in Tuesday’s start and landed on the DL with a forearm contusion. The injury isn’t severe, but it will be enough to cost him one turn through the rotation, a turn that will be taken by Hernandez.

Once a Cy Young winner, Hernandez has posted a 5.62 ERA this season. Perhaps a good start could earn him another one, but it has to be better than what he’s done lately.
