Felix Hernandez has declared himself ready to return to the Major Leagues after his latest Triple-A start.
Hernandez has been on the injured list since May.
The Seattle Mariners right-hander went three innings, allowing one earned run, walked three and struck out five on 69 pitches for Triple-A Tacoma.
"What else am I going to show them to be up there?" Hernandez said. "I feel pretty good, and I'm prepared to go."
He has been on the injured list since May 12 because of a right shoulder strain.
