FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: FELIX HERNANDEZ TO BE SKIPPED

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon will skip Felix Hernandez' turn in the rotation due to his belief that his ace is fatigued.  Hernandez is coming off a career-worst beatdown and his ERA is more than a little over 3.00 this season with declining rates across the board. 

Analysis:  I have been on record numerous times stating that Hernandez is the next ace we need to watch closely in terms of heavy usage at a young age taking a bite out of his stuff.  The evidence is pretty stark that Hernandez is having at least a little trouble maintaining the velocity he had just a few seasons ago and his K rate is also dropping as well.  Ultimately I think Hernandez will be all right for another season but I also wouldn't be shocked if more incremental decline takes place.
