Félix Abraham Hernández is a Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Seattle Mariners. He is already considered the Mariners' top pitcher at only 22 years of age. Highly touted as a prospect, he is widely considered to have the potential to turn into one of the best pitchers in baseball.
Hernández throws a fastball that has been clocked as high as 100 mph, although he does not rely entirely on overpowering velocity. Instead he often uses a two-seam fastball, which comes in just a bit slower but with more movement and sink as it approaches the batter. His repertoire of pitches also includes a hard curve, a changeup, and a slider, all of which he can throw extremely well . When at his best, Hernández can induce a steady procession of groundball outs and strikeouts, with very few balls being hit in the air.
