    • Diamondbacks' Oscar Hernandez: DFA'd on Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hernandez was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Friday. Hernandez is slashing just .197/.263/.352 in 142 at-bats with Double-A Jackson this season, so the Diamondbacks decided to remove him from the 40-man roster in order to open up a spot for Rubby De La Rosa to join the big-league bullpen. The Diamondbacks are already carrying a trio of catchers at the major-league level, so Hernandez was deemed expendable. He'll likely report back to Double-A if he passes through waivers untouched.

    • Diamondbacks' Oscar Hernandez: Optioned to Double-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hernandez was optioned to Double-A Jackson on Thursday. The Diamondbacks made a pair of roster moves to clear a spot for J.J. Hoover, whose contract was selected Thursday. Hernandez fared well this spring, slashing .294/.368/.647 with a pair of home runs, but the Diamondbacks had to cut down on the number of catchers they'll be carrying with Opening Day rapidly approaching. He'll begin the season at Double-A.

    • Hernandez (hamstring) is aiming to return to action in a minor league game Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Hernandez has put together a strong spring in a small sample, slashing .294/.368/.647 with two home runs and five RBI over 17 at-bats. He has been bothered by a hamstring issue of late, however. Even with Hernandez's solid showing thus far this spring, Jeff Mathis and Chris Iannetta look to be the primary considerations at catcher for the Opening Day roster.

    • Hernandez got the start behind the plate Wednesday, and hit a go-ahead solo homer in the 12th inning that proved decisive for the D-Backs, who won 3-2. Hernandez was recently called up for a temporary stint with Welington Castillo on paternity leave and Chris Herrmann on the DL, but proved to be the hero Wednesday. He will likely be sent back to the minors in the next couple days with Castillo returning, so don't go rushing to add the young catcher.

    • Hernandez was recalled from Double-A Mobile on Tuesday. Welington Castillo hit the Paternity Leave List on Tuesday, so Hernandez will come up to provide some insurance behind Tuffy Gosewisch with Chris Herrmann on the DL. Castillo isn't likely to miss more than a day or two, so Hernandez's stay with the big league club could be a short one.
