Fernandez Out

Alex Fernandez has a torn rotator cuff. The injury had occurred prior to game 2 and doctors still cannot understand how he was able to pitch (2-2/3 innings, 5 earned runs). He might be out the all of next season (an possibly, his career might be over). The Marlins not only lose their second best pitcher, but bullpen depth, as Livan Hernandez will start game 6. The Marlins will still have to protect Fernandez in the expansion draft because of a no-trade clause in his contract.
