The entire baseball community is mourning the tragic loss of Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez.

Tons of athletes took to social media after news of his death broke.

His teammate Giancarlo Stanton wrote on Instagram, “I’m still waiting to wake up from this nightmare. I lost my brother today and can’t quite comprehend it. The shock is overwhelming. What he meant to me , our team, the city of Miami, Cuba & everyone else in the world that his enthusiasm/heart has touched can never be replaced. I can’t fathom what his family is going through because We, as his extended Family are a wreck. I gave him the nickname Niño because he was just a young boy Amongst men , yet those men could barely compete with him . He had his own level, one that was changing the game. EXTRAORDINARY, as a person before the player. Yet still just a kid, who’s joy lit up the stadium more than lights could. A kid whose time came too soon. One that I will miss & never forget. Rest In Peace Niño, Jose Fernandez 🙏🏽”

Here’s what other players (and former players) are saying:

Mike Piazza: “Shocked and saddened at the news of #JoseFernandez passing, a tragic end to a man with talent and passion, May the Lord grant eternal rest.”
