Fernández was a player that truly had fun playing the game and laughed after being fooled by a pitch by Kenta Maeda. He also had his shining moments on the mound.

The Dodgers and its players took to social media to pay their respects to Fernández, who all say was a talent taken way too soon.

Members of the media also took to social media to react to the news.

In 2016 Fernández had a 2.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 253 strikeouts. Fernández had recently announced on his Instagram that his girlfriend was pregnant.

Our hearts and prayers are extended to the Marlins organization and his family, R.I.P. Jose.

    Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Maria 21 from England,my boyfriend of a year just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.This is his E-mail: [email protected] or Add him up on Whats-app: +2348071622464,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
