Marco Hernandez: Let go by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox released Hernandez on Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Hernandez's release opens up spots in the Red Sox's 60-man roster pool for minor-league players Hudson Potts and Jeisson Rosario, who were acquired from the Padres on Sunday in the deal that sent Mitch Moreland to San Diego. After being cast off the 40-man roster in January, Hernandez had yet to debut for the Red Sox in 2020.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Included in summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was added to the Red Sox's 60-man player pool.

Hernandez, who is not on the 40-man roster, has been an organizational soldier since joining the Red Sox from the Cubs in 2015 as the player to be named later in the Felix Doubront deal. After a 2017 shoulder injury lingered and wiped out 2018, Hernandez returned for 2019 and saw action in 61 games for the Red Sox. The 27-year-old utility infielder profiles as an average defender and doesn't hit enough to make up for that. For this pandemic-shortened season, he'll be insurance against a spate of infield injuries at second base, shortstop or third base.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Hernandez was designated for assignment Friday, but he'll now likely serve as infield depth for Triple-A Pawtucket after going unclaimed on waivers. The 27-year-old hit .285/.308/.416 with two home runs over 35 games at the Triple-A level last season.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was designated for assignment Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The Red Sox needed to free up a 40-man roster spot after trading for Austin Brice from Miami. Hernandez will serve as infield depth at Triple-A if he remains in the organization.

Marco Hernandez: Returns to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez signed a contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Hernandez finds himself back with the Red Sox shortly after being non-tendered by the team. The 27-year-old appeared in a career-high 61 games for Boston in 2019, finishing with a .250/.279/.338 slash line in 155 plate appearances. He should compete for a utility infield role in 2020.

Marco Hernandez: Cut loose by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was non-tendered by the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Hernandez slashed .250/.279/.338 with two home runs and 11 RBI over 61 games with Boston a season ago. It remains to be seen if this is good enough to earn him a major-league offer.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Sees regular duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez made his sixth start in the last seven games and went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's 11-3 loss to the Giants.

Hernandez is getting regular work at second base with Brock Holt filling in at right field for the injured Mookie Betts (foot). The Red Sox are experiencing health issues that leave them shorthanded in the outfield, so the versatile Holt's been using his outfielder's mitt of late. Betts may return to duty this weekend, but as only a DH, and J.D. Martinez (groin) remains sidelined, so Hernandez may continue to get consistent plate appearances.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Fills in for Holt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at second base in place of Brock Holt (illness) and went 0-for-5 in a 2-1 win over Philadelphia on Saturday.

Hernandez did double fill-in duty, also serving as Boston's leadoff hitter with Mookie Betts scratched due to a foot injury. Holt and Betts are out again Sunday, but Chris Owings gets the call at second base while Andrew Benintendi serves as the leadoff hitter.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Starts at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at second base and went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Cleveland.

Hernandez was recently called up as insurance when Michael Chavis (shoulder) hit the injured list, but he was needed in the starting lineup Wednesday with Brock Holt away on personal leave. Holt is due back Friday and should claim the role as the primary starter at second base.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Returns to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox recalled Hernandez from Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Hernandez will provide the Red Sox with some insurance up the middle after everyday second baseman Michael Chavis (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Brock Holt is expected to replace Chavis as the primary option at the keystone, likely leaving Hernandez to handle a limited role off the bench while he's up with the big club.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Moves to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox optioned Hernandez to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Hernandez was up with the big club for just two days, appearing in two of Boston's three games and going 1-for-4 with a double and a walk. With Brock Holt already locked in as Boston's top utility man, the Red Sox didn't see a need to keep Hernandez around for an extended period.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Rejoins Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.

Hernandez has a .339/.359/.500 slash line in 27 major-league games this season and should fill a reserve infield role for the Red Sox. It could be a short stay for the 26-year-old, since David Price will only be on the paternity list for a couple days.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Dropped from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday.

Hernandez has filled in capably as a part-time infielder for the Red Sox, hitting .339/.359/.500 over 65 plate appearances. He'll make way on the roster for Mitch Moreland, who returned from a quadriceps injury in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Rewarded with another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez will start at second base and bat ninth Sunday against the Tigers.

He'll draw a second straight start after pounding out three base hits across five at-bats in Saturday's 10-6 win. Hernandez is now hitting .348 over 47 plate appearances in the majors this season, but he'll likely struggle to earn regular starts with primary second baseman Brock Holt (.774 OPS in 114 plate appearances) also thriving at the dish.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Belts decisive home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez entered the game as a pinch hitter and hit a solo home run in a victory over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Hernandez was called upon to hit for Sandy Leon with one out in the ninth inning and came through with a solo home run against Toronto closer Ken Giles. The blast was his second of the season and third overall in his career. Despite receiving limited playing time, Hernandez has shown solid skills at the plate this season, slashing .317/.333/.561 in 41 at-bats.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Makes first start in week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at second base and went 0-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Hernandez, who had not started since June 16, has been strapped to the bench while the hot-hitting Brock Holt started at second base. With Holt sustaining a hamstring injury Sunday, that could change. Hernandez and Eduardo Nunez are on hand to fill in for Holt.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Sends game into extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-6 extra-inning win over Baltimore.

Hernandez's solo shot in the ninth inning off Mychal Givens sent this game into an extra inning. It was his first homer in a major-league game since May 30, 2016. He's been sharing Boston's unsettled second base spot with Brock Holt and has four extra-base hits along with four RBI in 24 at-bats.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Whacks third double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez had a pinch-hit double in Monday's 4-3 extra-innings loss to the Rangers.

It was the third double in four games for Hernandez, who hit for Eduardo Nunez and remained in the game at second base. He's hit safely in all four games since being called up (2-for-2 as a pinch hitter). If the bat continues to play, Hernandez could get regular plate appearances at second base ahead of Nunez, who is batting just .216 over 116 at-bats.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Drives in lone run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at second base for the second consecutive game and went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Rays.

Hernandez was the lone player to produce a run, as Boston went 1-for-13 with men in scoring position. He's hit safely in all three games played, including as a pinch hitter, and could emerge as a regular at second base, a position on the Red Sox's roster currently without an everyday starter.

June 10, 2019 11:20 AM
Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Appears in both games Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez had a pinch-hit double in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays and went 1-for-4 with two RBI as the starting second baseman in the nightcap.

Hernandez was promoted from Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday and made his first appearance in MLB since 2017. He'd been bothered by a shoulder injury that required two surgeries. Hernandez will serve as infield depth, capable of playing second base, shortstop and third base. In that sense, he's redundant to Brock Holt and Eduardo Nunez, so it's unclear if he'll stay up in Boston long-term or how all three utility players will stay fresh.
