Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Cubs. The 30-year-old came to the plate trailing 2-1 with a runner on base during the bottom of the fifth innings, and he clubbed his third homer of the season to give Cleveland the lead for good. Hernandez has a .202/.303/.331 slash line in 32 games this season, though he's come up with big hits in his past two games, garnering five RBI in the process.
Hernandez went 1-for-5 with a three-run triple and a run scored in Saturday's 9-2 win over Cincinnati. Hernandez hit a bases-loaded triple in the fourth inning to extend Cleveland's lead to 6-1. In the sixth, Hernandez got aboard on a fielder's choice and scored on a Jose Ramirez double. Through 31 games, Hernandez has a .200/.304/.308 slash line with two home runs, eight RBI and 16 runs scored. He hasn't hit like a typical leadoff batter, but his .234 BABIP is well below his usual level, indicating he's had some poor luck early in 2021.
Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a double in a 4-0 win over the Royals on Thursday. Hernandez delivered his sixth multi-hit game and third three-hit game of the season. The 31-year-old has been inconsistent this year, digging himself into a number of hitless streaks, but when he's on, he tends to tally multiple hits like Thursday. In 129 plate appearances, he's slashing .205/.310/.304. That's the worst slash line of his career, and he'll have to step it up to remain in the leadoff spot for Cleveland.

The 30-year-old Hernandez hasn't done much this year with a .188 batting average, .572 OPS, two home runs, five RBI and 14 runs scored in 25 games. He has yet to attempt a stolen base.
