On Monday, the baseball universe received one of the worst bits of news it will get in the 2014 MLB season: The 2013 NL Rookie of the Year Award winner, Jose Fernandez, hit the DL with an elbow injury. The thought around baseball is that Fernandez is very likely headed toward the dreaded Tommy John Surgery.
When a player the caliber of Jose Fernandez goes down, the rest of the baseball world takes notice, as he is a treat to watch not only for Marlins fans, but all baseball fans. Here are some of the reactions from around the web on Jose Fernandez’s injury:
