Jose Fernandez (Tommy John Surgery) second throwing session went well, with no reported problems.
A mid-to-late May seems to be the tentative target date for Fernandez' return. Obviously that's closer to best-case than anything else, but it is somewhat encouraging for fantasy owners, particularly those in keeper leagues. Just don't go all-in here and get crazy with drafting him next year. Missing the first month of the season isn't too traumatic, but should he suffer a setback and find himself re-injured, something we've seen from quite a few Tommy John veterans, it could end up being a busted season again. You must factor that in when assigning value in 2015.
