Hernandez was recalled from Double-A Pensacola on Monday.

Hernandez will be summoned from the minor leagues to fill the void left by Zack Cozart (quadriceps) and Bronson Arroyo (shoulder) heading to the disabled list. The 25-year-old right-hander has been stellar out of the Blue Wahoos' bullpen, producing a 2.18 ERA while striking out 39 batters in 33 innings. However, he continues to struggle with control, and given the other proven options in Cincinnati's pitching staff, it's hard to see him being anything more than a middle reliever during this cup of coffee with the major-league club.
