Top Enrique Hernandez News

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: On base four times

    Hernandez went 1-for-2 with two walks, was hit by a pitch and scored a run in Friday's 7-1 win over Texas.

    Hernandez remained in the leadoff spot despite a .232 on base percentage and reached base four times. After losing the leadoff job, manager Alex Cora returned him to the top spot four games ago. He was 0-for-13 with one walk over the first three of those contests. Hernandez also made a diving catch in right-center, robbing Nick Solak of extra bases in the bottom of the third inning after Boston had taken a 1-0 lead in the top half of the frame.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Back in leadoff spot

    Hernandez batted leadoff and went 0-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's 9-4 win over Atlanta.

    Hernandez, who opened the season as Boston's leadoff hitter, returned to the role that last two games. Trevor Story had been leading off, but a recent slump moved him down the order to sixth. Hernandez is in a prolonged season-opening slump and is batting .168 with a high-water mark of .200 on April 29. He's hitless in eight at-bats with a walk in the two games since returning to the top of the order.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Batting sixth in return

    Hernandez is starting Saturday's game against the White Sox.

    Hernandez was activated following a brief stint on the COVID-19 injured list, and he'll start in center field and bat sixth Saturday. The 30-year-old is hitting just .189 with a homer, 12 runs and 12 RBI this year, but he'll serve as Boston's primary center fielder now that he's back to full health.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: May move to injured list

    Hernandez (illness) has tested negative for COVID-19 but remains away from the team and could be placed on the injured list, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Hernandez sat out Thursday's matchup with the Angels while feeling under the weather, and he could be looking at a multi-game absence. Prospect Jarren Duran is heading to Boston to join the big-league club, and Hernandez moving to the COVID-19 IL would make sense as a corresponding move to free up a roster spot.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Reinstated from COVID-19 IL

    Hernandez (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

    Although Hernandez had been feeling under the weather lately, he didn't test positive for COVID-19 and will now rejoin the team following a brief absence. He'll reclaim his role as Boston's primary center fielder after Jarren Duran was optioned to Triple-A Worcester. Hernandez has reached base in 11 of his last 12 games and has hit .227 with two doubles, eight RBI and three runs during that time.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    Hernandez (illness) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    The Red Sox said Thursday that Hernandez has tested negative for COVID-19, but he's away from the team and will land on the injured list. He'll be eligible to return as soon as he clears the league's protocols, but Jarren Duran was called up to take his place on the active roster, and the prospect will start in center field and lead off Friday against the White Sox.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Sitting with illness

    Hernandez isn't starting Thursday against the Angels since he's feeling sick, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The Red Sox are hopeful that Hernandez's sickness is unrelated to COVID-19, but he'll be out of the lineup for at least one game as a precautionary measure. It's not yet clear whether he'll be an option off the bench, but Jackie Bradley will shift to center field while Franchy Cordero starts in right.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Not starting Thursday

    Hernandez will hit the bench Thursday against the Angels, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Hernandez sits for just the second time this season. He's gotten off to a poor start at the plate, hitting just .189/.262/.567 with one homer in 24 games. Jackie Bradley slides to center field in his absence, with Franchy Cordero starting in right.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Down in order again

    Hernandez batted fifth and went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

    Hernandez had a run-producing sacrifice fly in the fourth inning and singled in another during a four-run rally in the eighth inning, an encouraging sign for a team that has been unable to post a crooked number of late. For Hernandez, who opened the season as Boston's leadoff hitter, this was the fifth time in the last six games he has not been atop the order. Trevor Story has filled that role instead.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Gets first day off

    Hernandez will get his first day off of the season Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Trevor Story will ascend to the leadoff spot while Jackie Bradley shifts to center field and Christian Arroyo starts in right field. Hernandez is hitting .157/.246/.333 with one home run and a 12:6 K:BB in 51 at-bats.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Another pair of hits

    Hernandez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Hernandez began the season hitless across his first four games, but he has now tallied multiple knocks in consecutive starts. He got Boston on the board with a solo home run in the third inning before delivering an RBI double one frame later. Hernandez remains a fixture as the leadoff hitter in a strong Red Sox lineup, which should help him rack up runs scored if he can continue to reach base consistently.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Snaps drought

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

    Hernandez's stretch of futility went from 17 at-bats without a hit to 19, before his sixth-inning double plated Boston's first run. He later walked and came around to score on a Rafael Devers single. The 30-year-old center fielder is one of several struggling members of the Red Sox, but the team's nine hits and three extra-base hits might wake up what should be a potent lineup.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Still leading off despite slump

    Hernandez will start in center field and bat leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Hernandez has led off in each of the Red Sox's five games to date, but manager Alex Cora could adjust the lineup if the 30-year-old's ongoing slump continues much longer. He's hitless through 17 at-bats and has walked just twice, resulting in Hernandez carrying a .105 on-base average into Tuesday's contest.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Impacted by Story signing

    Hernandez is expected to be the primary starter in center field after Boston signed Trevor Story on Sunday.

    Hernandez was assumed to be the starter in center with Christian Arroyo poised to start at second base until the Story news broke Sunday. The one wrinkle was that if the Red Sox, who were looking to add a right-handed bat, signed an outfielder, they could move Hernandez back to second base. This news seemingly locks in Hernandez as an outfielder. Story has played mostly shortstop during his career but will move to second base, while Xander Bogaerts, the longest-tenured member of the Red Sox and a clubhouse leader, will continue at short.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Could remain in CF

    Boston manager Alex Cora said Hernandez could be the starting center fielder on Opening Day, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Cora left some wiggle room, stating the team is still looking to add bodies that could help improve the team, but the manager mentioned an outfield of Hernandez in center, Alex Verdugo in left and Jackie Bradley in right. Bradley, a defensive whiz who patrolled center field for several years in a Red Sox uniform, was originally seen as the starter there, but Cora is not locked into that. Hernandez could also start at second base, pending additional player acquisitions between now and Opening Day.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Homers yet again

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a pair of runs scored in Saturday's ALCS Game 2 win over the Astros.

    Hernandez just won't stop hitting. He singled and scored on Rafael Devers' grand slam in the second inning and stretched the Red Sox's lead to nine with a solo shot off Jake Odorizzi in the third. He's now homered five times in seven games this postseason while going 16-for-32 at the plate.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Tallies three extra-base hits

    Hernandez went 4-for-5 with two solo home runs, a double and a strikeout in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS.

    Hernandez has recorded hits in five of his six postseason appearances in 2021, and Friday's contest marked the second time that the 30-year-old has recorded at least three extra-base hits in a game during the 2021 playoffs. He's hit .500 with four home runs, four doubles, eight RBI and seven runs across his six playoff outings this year.
