The Mariners’ Mr. Durability

In each of his nine full major league seasons Felix Hernandez has made at least 30 starts.  For such a young pitcher to be so durable seems remarkable.  “King Felix” has not yet turned 29.

Here are the most seasons, all-time with at least 30 games started through age 28:

Name                Yrs From   To   Age
Felix  Hernandez       9 2006 2014 20-28
Bert  Blyleven         9 1971 1979 20-28
Walter  Johnson        9 1908 1916 20-28
Christy  Mathewson     9 1901 1909 20-28
