Hernandez (knee) is back with Triple-A Fresno and is scheduled to return to action Thursday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Hernandez, who will remain on the major-league disabled list until Thursday, had been called up to Houston at a time when both Jake Marisnick and George Springer were unavailable due to injury. There's no longer a need nor room on the major-league roster, so Hernandez heads back to the Pacific Coast League.
