Seattle’s Felix Hernandez had a rough month-long stretch with back problems and only one quality start. It wasn't until his last outing that he finally looked like his old self: 7 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 Ks vs. San Francisco. According to one
, it appears that King Felix made some minor mechanical adjustments. Also note that in comparison to earlier this year, his velocity was up.
Felix made a tweak to his position on the mound, he got comfortable with it, and he says he felt terrific. Before that, he didn't feel terrific, and his performance wasn't terrific. If Felix used to face the catcher right on, I don't know what would've made that change, but now it looks like it's changing back. After one start, signs are positive.
