It has been nearly 13 months since Miami's Jose Fernandez last pitched in the Majors, while San Francisco's Matt Cain has been out for almost 11 months. The former All-Stars finally return to the mound from their respective injuries Thursday afternoon at Marlins Park, when the Giants and Marlins conclude their three-game series.
"I have to control my emotions the best I can," Fernandez said. "There's gonna be emotions. I expect there to be emotions and I just have to know how to deal with it."
