Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez dies in a boating accident

Really tragic news to report as Marlins standout pitcher Jose Fernandez has passed away in a boating accident.

Authorities found a 30-foot boat overturned that had crashed into rocks off Miami Beach around 3 am EST, and three people were found dead according to multiple reports.

“The Miami Marlins organization is devastated by the tragic loss of Jose Fernandez. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at a very difficult time,” the Marlins said in a statement.

Fernandez was one of the most promising starting pitchers in the National League with a 2.86 ERA with 16 wins with 253 strikeouts and a 1.12 WHIP this season. For his career, he had a 2.58 ERA with 38 wins with 589 strikeouts and a 1.05 WHIP.

He was only 24-years old and prayers out to his family and everyone in the Marlins organization.

Today's game against the Atlanta Braves has been cancelled.
