  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Three more hits Tuesday

    Hernandez went 3-for-5 with two doubles and one run scored in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Cubs. Hernandez's three hits Tuesday extend his hitting streak to four games as he is heating up at the dish and is hitting .378 since Aug. 7. Despite the streak, he has scored only two runs and recorded just three extra-base hits in that stretch. Additionally, his.247 xBA and .325 xSLG on the season suggest the recent positive batting average performance may be influenced by batted ball luck and his lack of extra-base hits is likely reflective of his hitting profile.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Swipes fifth bag

    Hernandez went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 13-1 loss to Philadelphia. Hernandez singled and stole a base in the third inning before adding an RBI base hit in the fifth. Since his last multi-hit game July 25, the veteran infielder had been stuck in a 6-for-36 (.167) slump over his previous 11 contests. With his first three-hit game since May, Hernandez improved his season slash line to .241/.305/.307.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Days at keystone numbered

    Hernandez is expected to lose his starting job at second base once the Nationals call up CJ Abrams from Triple-A Rochester, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Hernandez surprisingly wasn't moved at the trade deadline, but a .613 OPS -- his worst mark since becoming a full-time player in 2015 -- and zero home runs through 104 games left little market for his services. The 32-year-old does not have a future on a rebuilding Washington roster, and Abrams would seem to have little left to prove in the minors, slashing .314/.364/.507 in 151 plate appearances for Triple-A El Paso between stints in the big leagues with the Padres before being part of the massive haul the Nats received for Juan Soto. Once Abrams makes his Washington debut, he's expected to bump Luis Garcia to the keystone, and Hernandez would likely find himself relegated to a bench role or even get waived entirely.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Logs fourth steal

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 4-1 win over the Dodgers. Hernandez provided a go-ahead RBI single in the fifth inning, which was ultimately all the Nationals needed for the win. He's gone 9-for-36 (.250) in his last 10 games. Manager Dave Martinez shuffled the batting order Monday, with Hernandez dropping to second as Victor Robles took over the leadoff spot -- given the result, that order could stick in the near term. Hernandez has a .242/.305/.305 slash line with 21 RBI, 47 runs scored, four stolen bases, 20 doubles and two triples in 97 games. He's still stuck at zero home runs after swatting a career-high 21 last year.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Sits amid slump

    Hernandez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta. After a recent stretch in which he started every game from June 18 through July 3, Hernandez will now take a seat for the second time in less than a week. Ehire Adrianza checks in at the keystone for Hernandez, whose benching comes while he's gotten off to a horrid 1-for-33 start to July.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Not in Monday's lineup

    Hernandez isn't starting Monday against the Marlins. Hernandez will get a breather after he went 0-for-11 with two walks and three strikeouts over the last three games. Ehire Adrianza is starting at the keystone and batting sixth.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Swipes bag Sunday

    Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base, a walk and a strikeout in Sunday's 9-3 win over Philadelphia. Hernandez went 0-for-5 with a run over the last two matchups, but he bounced back with an extra-base hit during Sunday's series finale. He hasn't displayed much speed this year, as his stolen base during Sunday's win marked his first steal since May 3. However, the 32-year-old has hit .302 with a triple, a double, five runs and two RBI over his last 11 games.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Takes seat for nightcap

    Hernandez isn't starting the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies. Hernandez started Friday's matinee and went 2-for-5 with a strikeout. Ehire Adrianza will take over at the keystone and bat eighth during the second game of the twin bill.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Receives first day off

    Hernandez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Hernandez has started all 58 games at second base this season, but he'll take a seat for the first time Thursday while in the midst of a 2-for-35 slump. Ehire Adrianza will take over at the keystone for Washington.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Three hits in Monday's loss

    Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Monday's 13-5 loss to the Mets. The veteran infielder continues to make things happen at the top of the Nationals' batting order. Hernandez has hit safely in 10 straight games, batting .390 (16-for-41) over that stretch to push his slash line on the season to .295/.345/.367 with two steals, 13 RBI and 30 runs. However, his lack of power so far is discouraging after he launched 21 homers in 2021.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: On base three times Sunday

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Brewers. He also had a strong day in the field, helping to turn three double plays. Hernandez has been giving the Nationals strong numbers from the top of the batting order for the last month, slashing .314/.374/.390 over the last 26 games with two steals, seven RBI and 14 runs.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Maintains leadoff role

    Hernandez will start at second base and bat leadoff in Sunday's game against the Brewers. Hernandez will lead off for the 25th straight game, a just reward while he's gotten on base at a .358 clip over the previous 24 contests. Despite the favorable lineup spot, Hernandez hasn't been a strong source of counting stats while being supported by a weak Nationals offense. Over that 24-game stretch, Hernandez didn't hit a home run and recorded 12 runs, six RBI and two stolen bases.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Three hits in Sunday's loss

    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.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Hit streak at 10 games

    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.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Records two hits Sunday

    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.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Dropped from leadoff spot

    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.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Wraps up solid spring

    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.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Tabbed as top pick for leadoff role

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Tuesday that he'd like for Hernandez to emerge as the team's leadoff hitter in 2022, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Martinez will presumably test out a few lineups during the Grapefruit League slate before settling on an ideal setup at the order, but if the switch-hitting Hernandez provides the Nationals with good at-bats in the spring, he sounds like he'll claim the table-setting role against both right- and left-handed pitching. The prospect of batting in front of Juan Soto could yield more runs from Hernandez, while perhaps also reigniting his involvement as a baserunner. After swiping no fewer than nine bags in any season from 2015 through 2019, Hernandez attempted just two steals across 897 plate appearances in the past two years combined.

  • Nationals' Cesar Hernandez: Joins Nationals on one-year deal

    Hernandez agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Nationals on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Hernandez split 2021 between the Guardians and White Sox, and he hit .232/.308/.386 with 21 home runs, 21 doubles, 62 RBI and 84 runs in 149 games. He's primarily operated as a second baseman, but the Nationals could also give him a look at shortstop or the hot corner.

  • Cesar Hernandez: Becomes free agent

    Hernandez will not have his $6 million team option picked up by the White Sox and will become a free agent, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. Hernandez slashed .232/.309/.299 in 53 games with Chicago after a midseason trade. His season-long OPS of .694 was unremarkable, but second basemen with 20 home run power are far and few between in this year's free agent market. As such, Hernandez figures to draw some and could land a respectable contract this winter.
