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.

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.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket prior to Saturday's game against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

He is not in Saturday's lineup, but he's back in the big leagues for the first time since 2017. Since then, Hernandez has had several shoulder surgeries, so this is a momentous day for him. Hernandez hit .303 with two home runs and two steals in 21 games with Pawtucket. He will serve as infield depth in the short term.

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

Hernandez was promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Hernandez missed all of 2018 and most of 2017 while undergoing three shoulder surgeries. He looked good at High-A Salem to open the season, hitting .295/.374/.385 in 21 games, and could eventually push for a bench role in Boston later in the season.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Activated, optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox activated Hernandez (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Thursday and optioned him to High-A Salem, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

With three infielders currently on the injured list, the Red Sox could certainly use another healthy body, but Hernandez isn't viewed as a solution just yet after missing most of the past two seasons on account of three shoulder surgeries. Prior to getting hurt, the 26-year-old had shown some promise as a utility man for the big club in parts of the 2016 and 2017 seasons, so it's possible he resurfaces in Boston once he makes up for the lost time by playing regularly in the minors. Hernandez had gone 4-for-14 at the plate over his first four games with Salem and should gradually make his way to the Red Sox's higher-level affiliates.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Beginning rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (shoulder) will begin a rehabilitation assignment at High-A Salem on Saturday.

Hernandez has been recovering from joint repair in his left shoulder. With Boston's second base position in a state of uncertainty due to injuries to Dustin Pedroia (knee), Brock Holt (eye) and Eduardo Nunez (back), there might be a spot for Hernandez when he comes off rehab.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Shifts to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox placed Hernandez (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Hernandez hasn't appeared in an MLB game since May 2017 after requiring three shoulder surgeries in the subsequent two years. Though he was cleared to resume action in minor-league games near the end of spring training, he's likely to remain at the Red Sox's facility in Florida for an extended period to pick up steady at-bats and receive regular maintenance for his shoulder. The infielder is without a concrete timeline to rejoin the Red Sox and could shift to the 60-day IL at some point.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Plays in minor-league game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (shoulder) went 0-for-3 in a minor-league spring game Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Hernandez was limited to DH duties Monday; nonetheless, it was still an encouraging step for the infielder, who hasn't appeared in a big-league game since May of 2017 thanks to a trio of shoulder surgeries. He's expected to resume playing defense during the last week of spring training. While Hernandez is trending in the right direction, he's expected to open the season on the shelf and remains without a concrete timetable for his return.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Returns to live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (shoulder) took live batting practice Friday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Hernandez has undergone three shoulder surgeries since his last major-league appearance in May 2017. Friday's live batting practice was his first of the spring as he looks to take part in minor-league spring games next week. The 26-year-old doesn't expect to start playing defense in the field until the last week of spring training, giving him slim odds of cracking the Opening Day roster.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Unlikely to begin 2019 in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (shoulder) isn't expected to begin the 2019 season with the Red Sox, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Hernandez underwent shoulder surgery in July -- his third shoulder surgery in less than 14 months. It's unclear if the injury will prevent him from breaking camp with the big club, or if the Red Sox are simply content with Brock Holt, Eduardo Nunez and Tzu-Wei Lin as their reserve infielders.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Out for season after shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

This is his third shoulder surgery in less than 14 months. This one is intended to stabilize his left shoulder. It's unclear if he will be ready to go in time for the start of spring training.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Placed on 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (shoulder) was officially placed on the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Hernandez will miss the first couple months of the 2018 season after undergoing a follow-up procedure on his shoulder in February. He is unlikely to resume activities for another couple weeks.

March 27, 2018 07:24 PM
Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Likely headed to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez (shoulder) is likely to open the season on the 60-day disabled list in order to open up a roster spot, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Hernandez initially underwent shoulder surgery back in May and then had a follow-up procedure in February. He isn't expected to resume baseball activities until mid-April at the earliest, and then he'd need a month or so to get up to speed after being out for nearly a year. A 60-day DL stint would rule him out until late May. As a utility man who won't play for at least two months, Hernandez has little appeal in most leagues.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: To resume activities in six weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez had two screws taken out of his shoulder and will be on the shelf for the next six weeks before resuming baseball activities, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Hernandez will most likely miss the majority of April as he continues to recover from a follow-up procedure on his left shoulder that he underwent last week. The utility infielder was experiencing discomfort in the shoulder earlier this spring and decided to undergo the second surgery in order to get back to full health instead of potentially skipping time in the middle of the year.

Red Sox's Marco Hernandez: Will miss spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez will miss the entirety of spring training recovering from follow-up surgery on his left shoulder, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Hernandez initially had surgery on his left shoulder back in May but was still feeling discomfort this spring. He had follow-up surgery to remove the pins from his shoulder in an attempt to relieve this discomfort. Prior to the Eduardo Nunez signing, he may have been in line to start at second base until Dustin Pedroia (knee) returns to the lineup, but Hernandez will now be relegated to a utility role once he's fully recovered.
