Indians' Cesar Hernandez: Enjoying nice series versus Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored Saturday in the Indians' 6-1 win over the Tigers.

Hernandez is now up to five hits through the first two games of the series with Detroit after recording a double and a single in Friday's 10-5 loss. The second baseman is holding down a .279/.370/.375 slash line on the season, production that should keep him locked in as the Indians' top table setter. He's leading off again Sunday in the series finale, marking his 27th start atop the lineup in the Tribe's 28 games.

Indians' Cesar Hernandez: Productive night against Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, three RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's 13-0 win over the Reds.

Hernandez is now batting .319 with a .429 on-base percentage, though he's still without a homer or a steal this season. The second baseman's average exit velocity is up but he's been driving the ball into the ground way too much; only a handful of MLB regulars have a higher groundball rate right now.

Indians' Cesar Hernandez: On bench for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a run scored during the matinee, but he'll head to the bench for Game 2. Yu Chang will take over at the keystone and bat seventh for Cleveland.

Indians' Cesar Hernandez: Plates run in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI during Friday's 2-0 win over the Royals.

Hernandez scored the insurance run for the Indians on a double to left field that scored Roberto Perez. The second baseman was the leadoff hitter in this one, and he is expected to hold that role through most of the season. He is coming off a 2019 season in which he hit .279 with 14 home runs, 71 RBI and a .333 on-base percentage.

Indians' Cesar Hernandez: Expected to lead off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is expected to lead off this season, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Oscar Mercado was the presumed leadoff hitter, but it sounds like he may end up hitting in the bottom half of the lineup. This bumps up Hernandez's value as he could now be a major factor in runs scored. Francisco Lindor will be the team's No. 3 hitter.

Indians' Cesar Hernandez: Candidate to lead off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez could hit atop the Indians' order, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The club has discussed moving Francisco Lindor out of the leadoff spot in an effort to better utilize his power. If that happens, Hernandez would be a prime candidate to hit first in the Indians' order, particularly because he has walked at over a 10 percent rate in three of the past four seasons. The move would certainly be beneficial for Hernandez's run-scoring potential as he would likely be immediately followed by the likes of Oscar Mercado, Jose Ramirez and Lindor.

Indians' Cesar Hernandez: Signs with Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez signed a one-year, $6.25 million contract with the Indians on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Hernandez was non-tendered by the Phillies at the beginning of December despite earning consistent playing time during his tenure with the team. The 29-year-old hit .279/.333/.408 with 14 home runs and 71 RBI in 2019 and will likely begin the season as the Indians' primary second baseman.

Cesar Hernandez: Non-tendered by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was non-tendered by Philadelphia on Monday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

Hernandez cranked his 13th homer of the season in the form of a solo shot off Stephen Strasburg in the fourth inning to cut the Phillies' deficit in half. The 29-year-old leads Philadelphia this year in both batting average (.280) and hits (167).

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

He's also scored six runs and driven in nine in that span. Overall, he's maintained a .285/.339/.409 line across 150 games this season.

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and another RBI in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Hernandez got the Phillies on the board with a solo shot off Julio Teheran in the first inning. The 29-year-old second baseman also tacked on an RBI single in the sixth to cap off a successful night at the plate and help lead the Phillies to a crucial victory amid the wild-card race. He now has 11 long balls with a team-leading 153 hits on the season.

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez: Swats ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Mets.

He led off the game with his ninth homer of the year, and that was all the offense Drew Smyly and the Phillies bullpen would need. The long ball was the first for Hernandez in over a month, but his .281/.333/.397 slash line is solid and he's now tied his career high in RBI with 60.

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez: Tallies three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI and two runs Wednesday in the Phillies' 12-3 win over the Pirates.

The three RBI matched Hernandez's output from his previous 13 games combined. The second baseman served as the Phillies' leadoff man throughout the three-game series in Miami over the weekend, but he's since moved down to the sixth spot in the order following Bryce Harper's return from paternity leave. The drop in the lineup may hurt Hernandez's ability to score runs, but batting behind the likes of Harper, Rhys Hoskins and Jean Segura should translate to an uptick in RBI opportunities.
