  • Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Angels. After seeing his 12-game hitting streak snapped Saturday, Hernandez wasted no time starting another. The veteran second baseman still isn't supplying any power, but he's batting .279 through 30 games with two steals, seven RBI and 17 runs.

  • Hernandez went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a caught stealing in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies. The veteran second baseman has rewarded manager Dave Martinez's faith in him at the top of the batting order, hitting safely in 10 straight games and slashing .390/.444/.463 over that stretch after a sluggish start to the season. Hernandez is still looking for his first homer of the year, but he has contributed six doubles, six RBI, two steals and 15 runs through 26 contests.

  • Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's 12-3 loss to the Giants. The veteran second baseman has consistently hit leadoff in manager Dave Martinez's batting order to begin the season, but so far Hernandez hasn't delivered. He's slashing .247/.275/.299 with four doubles, zero homers, two RBI and nine runs through 18 games, and with the Nationals struggling to generate offense, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Hernandez moved lower in the order at some point in an attempt to get him going.

  • Hernandez will start at second base and hit seventh in Saturday's game against the Giants. Hernandez occupied the leadoff spot in Washington's first 16 games of the season, but he went just 3-for-26 (.115) and did not take even one walk over his last six appearances. As a result, he will be bumped down the order for at least one game, and Lane Thomas will lead off for the Nationals instead.

  • Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's Grapefruit League finale against the Mets. The veteran second baseman hit in the leadoff spot consistently all spring, batting .290 (9-for-31) with a .333 OBP and five runs scored in 10 games. Hernandez doesn't offer any speed at this stage of his career, going 1-for-2 on the basepaths between 2020 and 2021, but he did launch a career-high 21 homers last year. The 31-year-old should be a solid source of runs hitting ahead of the likes of Juan Soto and Nelson Cruz in the Nationals' batting order.
