Felix Hernandez played his entire MLB career with the Seattle Mariners, the team where he would become the "King" of the Pacific Northwest and all of Baseball.

“King Felix” made his first appearance in the Majors in 2005, and after showing gradual improvement over his first few seasons, Hernandez took the throne in 2009, leading the American League in Wins (19), H/9 (7.5), and finishing second in Cy Young voting.  Hernandez was better in 210, winning the Cy Young, with a league-leading 2.27 ERA and 7.0 H/9, while also finishing atop the leaderboard in Innings Pitched (249.2).

Hernandez would not win the Cy Young again, but he was a contender for the award for years to come.  From 2011 to 2015, he was a perennial All-Star (he went to six in total), and the last of those four years, he was in the top eight in Cy Young votes, including another second-place finish in 2014.  That year, Hernandez led the AL in ERA (2.14), WHIP (0.915), and H/9 (6.5).

Hernandez played until 2019, retiring with a career record of 169-136 and 2,524 Strikeouts.
