The East Valley Tribune reported that Hernandez will make his Diamondbacks' debut when he starts on Friday against the Florida Marlins. The right-hander was traded by the Washington Nationals to the Diamondbacks on Monday for a pair of minor league pitchers.
Hernandez was traded by the Washington Nationals to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday for a pair of minor league pitchers.
Bouncing back from a miserable August in which opposing hitters rang him up for a .367 average, resulting in a 1-2 6.69 log, Hernandez held the Marlins hitless until the fifth inning en route to a six-hit, eight-inning performance for a 5-2 victory, his 15th of the season.
Hernandez, who has been nursing a right knee problem for several weeks, has just one win over his last seven starts. The Nationals' righthander turned in his worst performance over that span in Wednesday's loss to the Houston Astros, allowing seven runs -- five earned -- on 10 hits in six innings of work. He struck out five and walked four.
Apparently, Hernandez' right knee is holding up. He pitched through eight innings against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, yielding just five hits and one run, but came away without a victory for his fourth consecutive start when the Braves tied the game at 2-2 in the ninth and walked away with a 3-2 win in 10 innings.
After claiming that he would undergo surgery and miss the rest of the season the previous day, Hernandez backtracked on his comments on Thursday, admitting that he will wait until after the 2005 campaign is complete to go under the knife. The Nationals' righthander, who has been battling inflammation in his right knee since mid-May, said he will continue to take the mound, even if it means pitching through pain.
Hernandez was disgusted following Wednesday's loss to the Colorado Rockies and indicated that he is contemplating undergoing season-ending surgery on his troublesome right knee. The Nationals' righthander, who has lost his last two decisions after winning 11 straight, has been pitching through pain and inflammation in the knee since the middle of May. For the season, he is 12-4 with a 3.44 ERA and one complete game.
According to Hernandez, he has been pitching through pain and inflammation in his right knee since the middle of May, and his condition is not likely to improve until he undergoes arthroscopic surgery after the season is over. The All-Star righthander is 12-3 for the upstart Nationals at the break, and despite the gimpy knee he leads the majors in batters faced (578) and pitches thrown (2,220). He currently owns a streak of 15 straight starts with at least 100 pitches.
After tying a franchise record with 11 consecutive winning decisions, Hernandez came up on the short end of the stick in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the New York Mets. The Nationals' ace, who had not recorded a loss since mid-April, allowed five runs on eight hits in seven innings of work, striking out four and walking three.
In shutting down Oakland on eight hits and two runs over eight innings Thursday, Hernandez claimed his eighth straight win and his 10th consecutive quality start. The victory also gave National League East-leading Washington its seventh straight win. For the season, Hernandez now is 9-2 with a 3.35 ERA in 14 starts.
Despite a tender right knee that needed to be drained of fluid on Monday, Hernandez secured his sixth straight win with six one-run innings in Washington's 3-2 victory over Milwaukee Thursday. After claiming his sixth "W" in a row, the 30-year-old righthander is 7-2 with a 3.69 ERA in 10 starts. In his six straight winning starts, Hernandez has posted a 2.49 ERA and a complete game.
Barring any last-minute setbacks, Hernandez will get the starting nod against the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday, as scheduled. The Nationals' righthander, who injured his right knee while fielding a groundball in the seventh inning of Saturday's matchup with the Chicago Cubs, had fluid drained from the knee on Monday after an MRI revealed some minor inflammation. No structural damage was found, and Hernandez should be fine going forward.

The Nationals' righthander, who was injured when he ranged to his right to field a groundball in the seventh inning of Saturday's matchup with the Chicago Cubs, hopes to be ready for his scheduled start on Thursday. He continues to be listed as day-to-day.
If Hernandez is unable to take the mound on Thursday, the Nationals likely will turn to either Tomo Ohka or Zach Day -- both former starters currently pitching in relief. In nine starts this season, Hernandez is 6-2 with a 3.90 ERA and one complete game. He's won his last five outings.
Hernandez' right knee was much improved on Sunday, but the Nationals' righthander will still undergo a precautionary MRI and X-ray on Monday, as scheduled. Hernandez, who was injured when he ranged to his right to field a groundball in the seventh inning of Saturday's matchup with the Chicago Cubs, hopes to be ready for his scheduled start on Thursday.

In nine starts this season, Hernandez is 6-2 with a 3.90 ERA and one complete game. He's won his last five outings.
One of the most durable pitchers in the game, Hernandez left Saturday's contest with the Cubs early due to a right knee injury. Hernandez ranged to his right to field a groundball in the seventh inning, and one out later called for the team trainer and Washington manager Frank Robinson. The righthander was replaced by reliever Gary Majewski and will be evaluated on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury.
Hernandez earned the win to push his record to 5-2. Consider him day-to-day until more information is available about his injury.
Hernandez went the distance in Wednesday's 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, notching the 41st complete game of his major league career and first of the 2005 campaign. The Nationals' righthander allowed two runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking three.
Hernandez has gone seven or more innings in five of his seven starts this season. For the year, he is 4-2 with a 4.04 ERA.
