Miami Herald: Marlins star Jose Fernandez was legally drunk, had cocaine in blood when he died, medical examiner says
Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez was legally drunk and had cocaine in his system when he died in a boat crash off South Beach last month, according to a toxicology report released Saturday.
While his two companions had alcohol in their systems, neither was legally drunk, the reports show. However, one of them, Eduardo Rivero, also had cocaine in his blood, the reports show.
Fernandez had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.147, well above the legal limit of .08. Other fluids in his body measured at exactly double the legal limit.
The crash was being investigated by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, which initially claimed the documents could not be released because of an active criminal investigation. However, the Herald contended that no criminal charges could be brought because everyone on board died.
The records were released after the FWC declined to be a party to the lawsuit.
Fernandez, 24, died when his 32-foot boat plowed into the Government Cut north jetty before dawn on Sept. 25. Two others on the boat with him, Emilio Jesus Macias, 27, and 25-year-old Rivero were also killed.
The reports do not indicate who was piloting the vessel, which was owned by Fernandez.

I generally don’t get impacted by the deaths of people I don’t personally know. I could feel Jose Fernandez’s joy for life, though. People with such joy are a treasure. He’ll be missed. The world is a worse place today.
This is horrific news.

They will also be dealing for Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Corey Saeger, Manny Machado, Clayton Kershaw, Christian Yelich, and Jose Altuve.
What a team they will have!!

I watched a Baseball Tonight clip of Fernandez in a few ABs. I was surprised by the number of sliders he was throwing. Checking out Brooks Baseball’s game breakdown shows that he threw 55 *curveballs*, 7 change ups, and 49 fastballs. I put asterisks around curveballs because it appears PitchFx classifies the giant break on his slider as a curveball. Anyway, for the year, Fangraphs PitchFx totals breaks down his season totals as 1189 four-seam fastballs 50%, 817 curves 34%, 296 changes 12%, and 71 two-seam fastballs 3%.
I don’t have the time right now to determine whether his breakdown last night is an aberration or a trend. If it’s just one game, it’s probably not a big deal. If it’s a trend I wonder how long his repaired elbow will be able to handle the stress of so many sliders.
