MIAMI - Jose Fernandez walked into the Miami Marlins clubhouse four hours before game time and extended his left arm to shake hands with teammates. His right arm rested in a sling and was encased in a cast from above the elbow to his hand. "Im excited," Fernandez said with a grin. "Im throwing a bullpen tomorrow lefty." That would be the only way last seasons NL Rookie of the Year would be able to pitch anytime soon. Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow Friday, and he is expected to be out 12 to 18 months. He rejoined the Marlins on Tuesday for the start of their six-game homestand, but only as a spectator. He also spoke to reporters for the first time since the operation. Fernandez said he felt a pinch in his elbow during a start against the Dodgers on May 4, and was at less than 100 per cent in his final start May 9 at San Diego. He said he didnt tell anyone because missing a start wasnt an appealing option. "I said, I cant do this to my team. Were in first place. I cant let them down right now," Fernandez said. "Its nobodys fault. It happened. Its sad it did. I dont blame anybody, and I dont regret not saying anything. That was my call. Probably it wasnt the smartest thing, but this is my team, and I give my life for my team." An attorney for Fernandez released a statement last week saying the pitcher changed his delivery for his final start, but Fernandez said it was nothing his team or manager could detect. "I was trying not to let anybody see that I was in a little pain," he said. Fernandez said the ligament came off the bone, leaving him no choice but to undergo surgery. At the time he led the majors in strikeouts, and was 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA. "It was sad not because I got hurt, but because I felt like I let my team down," he said. "That was the tough part. I felt bad, but I can take care of this and be back and strong." Tuesday would have been Fernandezs day to pitch as the Marlins opened a series against the Phillies. "Hes going to be out a long time, but we know hes on the road to recovery," manager Mike Redmond said. "We know a lot of guys come back and either pitch the same or better. Its tough to see him in the sling, but we know hes going to be back." Fernandez underwent surgery in Los Angeles. He plans to return there next week to have his cast and stitches removed, before the long rehabilitation process begins. The Cuban defector said hes eager to get started. "To me this is just a little bump in the road," he said. "Ive been through a lot more stuff, tougher things. This is just something Ive got to learn from." At age 21, Fernandez has a 16-8 record with a 2.25 ERA in 36 career starts. Does he anticipate hell be able to pitch as well when he returns? "I hope better," he said. "Im going to be out for a year. Id better learn a lot of things and get a lot stronger. I cant wait to get back on the mound. Its going to be a special day. Its far away, but we have to take the little steps to get there."

Brett Hull Jersey . With their coach gone, they finally played offence the way he would have wanted.

Radek Faksa Stars Jersey . The White Sox said Wednesday they acquired left-handed pitching prospect Sean Bierman and infielder Ben Kline, who both played at Class A this season. The White Sox dealt Crain to Tampa Bay on July 29. DENVER -- Franklin Morales and Jackson Williams worked together like old friends, but the new battery put a charge into the Colorado Rockies. Morales pitched six solid innings for his first win in two months, Williams hit his first major league home run and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 6-0 on Sunday. Nolan Arenado also went deep for the Rockies, who swept a three-game series for the first time since June 13-15 in San Francisco. Colorado has won four straight, its longest streak since winning five in a row against Atlanta and the Giants in June. It was the Rockies first three-game sweep at home this season. "This has been a great homestand for us," Williams said. "Two shutouts and a big walk-off win last night." Morales (6-7) scattered four hits and walked two. He had been 0-3 with five no-decisions since beating San Diego on July 8. The left-hander struck out four of his first seven batters and fanned six overall. It was the first time this season he started and didnt allow a run, and it came with Williams catching him for the first time. "My concentration was good and Williams called a good game," Morales said. "We stayed on the same page the whole game and we mixed it up." San Diego right-hander Tyson Ross entered with 14 consecutive quality starts and came within one out of making it 15. But he allowed a two-out walk to Williams and a pinch-hit single to Matt McBride, ending his day. Alex Torres got the last out of the sixth to keep it a three-run game. "Stats at the end of the day dont matter to me," Ross said. "Its just all about doing my job on the days I get to go out there and pitch, and giving us a shot." Ross (13-13) allowed three runs on seven hits and struck out seven in 5 2-3 innings. His one bad inning was the second, when Colorado got all the runs it needed. Singles by Corey Dickerson and DJ LeMahieu put runners on first and second before Williams drove a 2-1 pitch into the left-centre seats. "It felt great. I didnt even feel it come off the bat," Williams said. "I knew I barrelled it, so I knew it had a shot. After I saw it go over I started floating around the bases." He was more proud of catching a combined shutout with four different pitchers than going deep. "If I had to give back my three-run homer for catching a shutout, Id do it every day of the week," Williams said. "I take more pride in what I do behiind the plate than what I do at the plate.dddddddddddd" Arenado made it 5-0 with a two-run shot off reliever Robbie Erlin in the seventh. It was Arenados 17th of the season. TOUGH POSITION Rockies infielder Ben Paulsen got the start in right field for the second time on this homestand. He left in the bottom of the sixth after being hit by a pitch, but his departure had more to do with the game situation than an injury. "I was fine," he said. "I knew they were going to bring in (Drew) Stubbs anyway because of the score." Paulsen had only two balls hit his way in six innings -- a flyout in the first and a single in the fifth -- and he handled both chances cleanly. "Benny, I was impressed with him the last time I put him out there. It was a tough day," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "I probably picked the toughest day of the year to throw him in right field. Like I tell the guys when I play them out of position: If you mess up its my fault. Youve got nothing to lose." HOME AWAY FROM HOME Padres 2B Jedd Gyorkos average is hovering near the Mendoza Line, but it might be much higher if he played at Coors Field half the season. Gyorko went 2 for 3 to climb to .201 for the season. In 16 career games in Denver he is hitting .333 with three home runs. TRAINERS ROOM Padres: LF Abraham Almonte was sore after falling Saturday and twisting his left ankle, but was possibly available to pinch hit. Almonte was shaken up when he slipped and fell hard as he charged Josh Rutledges sinking liner that dropped for a double in the third inning. Tended to by team trainers for several minutes, Almonte got to his feet and remained in the game until the sixth. Rockies: C Wilin Rosario (left wrist inflammation) was activated from the 15-day disabled list but did not start. He had a pinch-hit double in the eighth and scored Colorados sixth run. Michael Cuddyer (left hamstring strain) is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list Monday. UP NEXT Padres: RHP Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5) gets the ball in a matchup against Cy Young favourite Clayton Kershaw when San Diego opens a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw has a 1.70 ERA. Rockies: RHP Jordan Lyles (6-2) hopes to duplicate his success against the Mets when Colorado opens a three-game series in New York. Lyles beat the Mets in his only start against them on Aug. 24, 2012, with Houston. Lyles had a double and an RBI in that game. ' ' '
