Though he has yet to play above the High-A level, Hernandez, 23, was included in the Rays' 60-man roster pool in 2020 and was believed to factor into the Rays' long-term catching plans. The Rays' decision to move on from him while getting back two fringe MLB pitchers seemingly implies otherwise, but Hernandez should still have a decent outlook in Boston. Since Christian Vazquez is under club control through at least 2022 and should remain the Red Sox's No. 1 catcher, look for Hernandez to spend most of the upcoming campaign at Double-A Portland or Triple-A Worcester, where he'll be able to play on a regular basis. Through his first three seasons in the professional ranks, Hernandez has slashed .287/.333/.459 with 35 home runs and a 19-for-25 success rate on stolen-base attempts.
