Marlins’ Jose Fernandez Returns Following 13-Month Layoff - The New York Times

It’s Jose Fernandez is back day!

Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez says his long layoff was a life lesson, even if it was lousy for his career.

Now he’s back, saying he’s a better person for having made the taxing, tedious recovery from Tommy John surgery. He’ll pitch for the first time since May 9, 2014, when he faces the San Francisco Giants on Thursday.

“I’ve been waiting 13 months,” said the 22-year-old Fernandez. “If I’ve learned something, it’s how to be patient at my age.”

Cuban-born Jose Fernandez becomes U.S. citizen

Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, a native of Santa Clara, Cuba, become a U.S. citizen Friday and was the keynote speaker during the ceremony for 140 other South Florida residents.

“This is a dream that I’ve had since I was little, and actually achieving it is really amazing,” Fernandez said. “Having my family here and so much support from this amazing country, it’s really fantastic.”

The Marlins presented Fernandez with an American flag that had flown over the team’s stadium….

“This is one of my important accomplishments,” Fernandez said. “I’m an American citizen now—I’m one of them. I consider myself now to be free.”

The new citizens sworn in represented 22 different countries. They heard taped presentations from President Barack Obama and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who was born in Czechoslovakia and became a U.S. citizen in 1957.

Harvey-Fernandez could be historic rivalry in the making | New York Post

So, Fernandez’s timetable is 13-14 months.

Fernandez was due to throw 24 hours later. But only 30 pitches (no breaking stuff) from a bullpen mound. His surgery was May 16. Marlins general manager Dan Jennings mentioned he has never seen anyone in his 28 years in pro ball attack rehab like Fernandez has, and the blueprint has Fernandez back in the majors sometime from mid-June to mid-July.
