Mariners Send Felix Hernandez To Bullpen

Felix Hernandez moved to bullpen by Mariners after 398 career starts for franchise

The Seattle Mariners have sent Felix Hernandez to the bullpen for the first time in his Major League career.

Felix is 8-10 in 2018 with a 5.73 ERA, but 0-4 in his last five starts.

The right-hander, who threw a flawless game in 2012, will pitch out of the bullpen for the first time in his career.

The 2010 American League Cy Young Award victor is in the midst of a season in which he has posted a career worst ERA, WHIP, K/BB and WAR.

The Seattle Mariners have officially banished their king to the bullpen. All 398 of his career appearances have been starts.

Servais said the conversation was a hard one. "It's never easy but again hopefully he takes it the right way".

While the Mariners are leaving the door open for Hernandez to work his way back into the rotation between now and the end of the season, it's hard to see how that would happen save for another injury.

Hernandez declined to speak to reporters when approached after the game.

Hernandez is 168-124 lifetime with a 3.32 ERA. Hernandez took the loss giving up seven earned runs on 11 hits in six-and-a-third innings.
