In arguably the most anticipated debut for an injured player, Marlins pitching hurler Jose Fernandez will make his first start since May 9, 2014. After dominating in his first season in 2013 and earning the NL Rookie of the Year award, a torn UCL cut his second season very short. Now he will get his chance to pitch again, after quickly returning from Tommy John Surgery just a little over a year ago.
Ironically, the Marlins’ opponent, the Giants, will send out Matt Cain for his first start of the season, after recovering from late season ankle surgery last year. All eyes will certainly be on this game, although much of the focus will be around Fernandez. The Rays’ Matt Moore is also slated to make his first start today after Tommy John surgery last year.
