Fernandez last pitched on Friday night in San Diego, and struggled. It was later determined that he was experiencing stomach pain and possibly had a bad meal before the start.
The "nature" of the injury is unknown, and Fernandez reportedly is undergoing an MRI in Los Angeles.

While he gave up six runs to a Padres lineup that has consistently struggled to score runs, Fernandez didn't speak of any pain aside from the stomach issues after the start. Fernandez has led a young Marlins pitching staff that has the team two games over five hundred just over a month into the season.
Marlins Manager Mike Redmond is expected to address the media at 6:30 EST in Los Angeles. Stay tuned to FishStripes for the latest.
