Hernandez (calf) looked strong Tuesday in his first time throwing off a mound since landing on the DL, and the Mariners have not ruled out their ace returning prior to the All-Star break, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports. "If there's a way to get him out there and possibly get him a start before the break, I'd be all in favor of it," manager Scott Servais said. "But it's going to depend on [trainer Rick Griffin] and where Felix is at and getting him built up and comfortable to fire him out there. I don't want to put him out there for 50-60 pitches. He has to be able to go longer than that."
