Felix Hernandez suffered a hip bruise against the Tigers on Saturday, but the Mariners’ ace told Greg Johns of today that he’s “good” for his next scheduled start Friday against the Red Sox.

Hernandez was hit by a comebacker off the bat of Ian Kinsler in the fourth inning on Saturday and ended up allowing two runs over five innings before exiting. The outing snapped his major-league record streak of 16 starts of seven or more innings with two runs or fewer allowed. However, his hip isn’t a major concern, so he’ll now look to begin a new streak.

Hernandez leads the American League with a 1.99 ERA and owns a fantastic 197/32 K/BB ratio over 185 1/3 innings.

    Even as an Angels fan, I love watching this guy pitch.

    Makes you wonder if Felix will earn his second Cy Young this year

      Right now it’s his…

      Of course there’s still season left to play…

      After Kershaw, King Felix is the next best pitcher in the game…

        No doubt Kershaw takes home another Cy Young, I cant see how he doesn’t this season. Granted I think Fister would have to be up there among NL pitchers

    I think it would’ve been interesting to see what Tanaka could have done for a whole season as he was pretty dominate before the elbow issues. He had 12 wins in early July and 2.51 ERA.
