Four Reasons It Might Be Time to Shop Felix Hernandez

Felix Hernandez may be the one bright spot on the Seattle Mariners roster, but it may be time for the M’s to consider shopping the King.

Seattle currently sits at last in the division, with a mundane 36-51 record.

There is little hope for Mariners fans, as the offense has been anemic for the third straight season. The Mariners rank second to last in runs, batting average and home runs in the American League.

Hernandez has been his normal consistent self this season, posting a 6-5 record with a 3.13 ERA (eighth in the AL) and 128 strikeouts (first in the AL).

Yet, King Felix only gets 4.73 runs scored per game when he pitches, which ranks him fifth lowest in the AL.

The offense lacks the firepower to grant him hardly any breathing room while he’s on the mound. He is a supremely talented arm, as he was the 2010 AL Cy Young winner and could command a hefty return.

With the M’s offensive woes, it may seriously be time to put Hernandez on the market.
