Hernandez (hamstring) is expected to return from the injured list when first eligible, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.
Hernandez left Thursday's game against the Tigers with right hamstring tightness and landed on the injured list the next day. He'll be able to return next Tuesday.
Hernandez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Friday.
Hernandez was removed from Thursday's game against the Tigers due to a right hamstring issue, and he's now been diagnosed with a strain that will force him to miss additional time. Michael Chavis was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move and could see playing time while Hernandez is unavailable.
Hernandez (hamstring) is out of the lineup Friday against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The 29-year-old continues to be evaluated after exiting Thursday's game during the first inning with a hamstring injury, and manager Alex Cora indicated the team will decided later in the afternoon whether a trip to the injured list is necessary, per Alex Speier of The Boston Globe. Michael Chavis would likely be recalled from the taxi squad should Hernandez be placed on the shelf. Alex Verdugo will shift to center field Friday while Franchy Cordero starts in left.
The hamstring injury Hernandez sustained Thursday is more than a cramp, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. "He thought it was probably a cramp in the beginning, but then he felt it was more than a cramp," manager Alex Cora said. "I don't know how serious it is."
Hernandez was removed from Thursday's game in the bottom of the first inning after reaching second base on a double. It's uncertain yet if a stint on the injured list will be required. If he does land on the IL, there will be a domino effect in the outfield and infield. Hernandez hass primarily played center field, so an increase in playing time for Hunter Renfroe and Franchy Cordero would be expected. In the infield, where Hernandez has played second base, Christian Arroyo (hand) and Marwin Gonzalez could fill in. Michael Chavis, who was held out of Triple-A Worcester's lineup Thursday, could be the player added to the roster in the event Hernandez hits the IL.
Hernandez left Thursday's game against the Tigers with right hamstring tightness, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Hernandez appeared to tweak something after hitting a double. Franchy Cordero pinch ran for him. It's not yet clear how much time Hernandez is expected to miss.
Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and two runs Tuesday against the Tigers.
Hernandez reached base multiple times for the first time in his last four starts. His effort was highlighted by a leadoff homer in the eighth inning -- his fourth long ball of the season. Hernandez hasn't had a particularly inspiring start to his first campaign in Boston, as he's managed only a .234/.291/.421 line across 117 plate appearances. However, he has managed to score 18 runs thanks to frequently leading off for the strong Red Sox lineup.
Hernandez (undisclosed) will start at second base and bat leadoff Sunday against the Rangers, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
After colliding with the outfield wall in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Texas, Hernandez was held out of the lineup for the last two games while he was less than 100 percent healthy. The time off appears to have allowed Hernandez to recover, as he'll check back into the starting nine for the series finale. Hernandez will continue to serve as Boston's leadoff man, but his .269 on-base percentage on the season likely makes his hold on the table-setting role a tenuous one.
Hernandez has been out of the lineup Friday and Saturday after he ran into the center field wall Thursday, but he's expected to return Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
The Red Sox haven't specified the nature of Hernandez's injury, but he's apparently banged up following Thursday's game. Alex Verdugo is starting in center field while Franchy Cordero gets the nod in left field Saturday.
Hernandez isn't in Saturday's lineup against the Rangers, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Hernandez has gone hitless with three strikeouts in his last eight at-bats and will be out of the lineup for a second straight contest. Alex Verdugo will shift to center field while Franchy Cordero takes over in left.
Hernandez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Mariners, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Hernandez had recorded hits in four of the last five games and went 5-for-24 with four extra-base hits, four runs and two RBI during that time. Christian Arroyo will take over at second base and lead off Saturday.
Hernandez went 2-for-6 with a home run, a double and two runs scored in Monday's 11-4 victory over the White Sox.
Hernandez took Lucas Giolito deep to kick off the bottom half of the first inning, and the Red Sox would never look back. The 29-year-old has now homered in two of his last three contests and sits with three long balls on the young season. He's slashing .269/.306/.463 with four doubles and seven RBI over 17 games played.
Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 3-2 loss to the White Sox in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader.
Hernandez hit a slice down the right-field line that snuck around the foul pole for his second round-tripper of the season. A sluggish 2-for-18 start appears well in his rear view mirror. Hernandez is hitting .341 (14-for-41) with an .894 OPS over his past 10 games.
Hernandez went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the White Sox.
The versatile Hernandez had his best game of the season from an offensive standpoint, as he reached base four times for the first time in 2021 while plating a run -- he scored Kevin Plawecki with an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth. The 29-year-old Hernandez extended his hitting streak to three games, and he's now hit safely in seven of Boston's last nine contests while recording four multi-hit appearances during that stretch.
Hernandez isn't in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Twins, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Hernandez had hit .214 with a home run and four RBI while starting each of the first 10 games of the season. However, Christian Arroyo will take his place at second base for Wednesday's matinee, leading off.
Hernandez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Orioles.
Hernandez provided an insurance run in the eighth inning when he took Tyler Wells deep for his first homer of the season. He had a slow start to the campaign, collecting only two hits in his first 18 at-bats. However, Hernandez has shown signs of improving his performance at the plate, collecting three knocks across his last two games.
Hernandez went 2-for-5 with two singles in Wednesday's 9-2 win over Tampa Bay.
The utility player has struggled considerably as Boston's leadoff hitter, hitting 4-for-23 with two RBI and two walks in six games. There were doubts about Hernandez's ability to hit consistently in a more prominent role after years as a part-time piece on a deep Dodgers roster, and he's done nothing to silence such doubts thus far in 2021. It's reasonable to speculate that Hernandez will yield the leadoff spot to Alex Verdugo if his struggles continue -- especially considering the need to have runners aboard for J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts, who are both off to outstanding starts this season.
Hernandez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
This is his first day off of the season, and it will come against right-handed ace Tyler Glasnow. He's 2-for-15 with zero home runs, zero steals and a 4:2 K:BB. Christian Arroyo will start at second base and lead off.
Hernandez batted leadoff and went 1-for-4 in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Orioles.
Hernandez opened the bottom half of the first inning with a line-drive single to right, building off the momentum generated during spring training when he slashed .327/.450/.592. However, the momentum died there when Hernandez was picked off first base with one out. His was one of only two Boston hits on the day.
Manager Alex Cora confirmed Sunday that Hernandez would begin the season as the Red Sox's leadoff hitter, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Mainly a short-side platoon player for the Dodgers over the past six seasons, Hernandez will not only be on tap for an everyday role in his debut campaign in Boston, but he'll also be setting the table against both left- and right-handed pitching. The Boston lineup doesn't look like the top-to-bottom juggernaut it was earlier this season, but batting in front of Alex Verdugo, J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers should still be fertile ground for Hernandez. The 29-year-old looks like a worthy target late in drafts for fantasy managers looking for a boost in the runs category.
Hernandez has "done everything possible" to be the Red Sox's leadoff hitter per manager Alex Cora, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Hernandez doesn't fit the traditional mold of a leadoff man, as he's never stolen more than four bases in a season. He doesn't entirely fit the modern mold, either, as he owns a career .313 on-base percentage and has come in at .308 or below in that category in four of the last five seasons. His .270 on-base percentage last season was a career low, as was his 4.1 percent walk rate, but he's evidently done enough to impress Cora. The leadoff role would be a boost to his fantasy value primarily through the extra plate appearances it comes with and should also boost his run total, albeit at the likely cost of a handful of RBI.
