Rangers' Ariel Hernandez: Heads to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez agreed to a minor-league deal with the Rangers on Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Hernandez bounced around between three different organizations during the 2018 season. He failed to appear in any big-league games after pitching 24.1 innings of relief for the Reds in 2017. The 26-year-old found moderate success (3.20 ERA) with Triple-A Oklahoma City within the Dodgers' system before being designated for assignment in early August, but his 4.55 FIP and 21:20 K:BB suggest that he was fortunate. Hernandez will attempt to find a home in the Rangers' bullpen this spring.

Brewers' Ariel Hernandez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was designated for assignment by Milwaukee on Thursday.

Hernandez was sent off the 40-man roster in order to make room for Aaron Brooks, who had his contract purchased from the minors in a corresponding move. Since being claimed off waivers by the Brewers earlier this month, Hernandez has allowed four earned runs on two hits and 11 walks in 5.1 innings with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He will now be subject to waivers yet again.

Brewers' Ariel Hernandez: Claimed by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on Tuesday.

Hernandez, who was designated for assignment by the Dodgers last week, will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 26-year-old right-hander compiled a solid 2.52 ERA and 49:29 K:BB across 50 minor-league innings (between Double-A and Triple-A) before being cut loose by Los Angeles. He tossed 24.1 innings of relief for the Reds in 2017, posting a 5.18 ERA and 29:22 K:BB. Hernandez should serve as organizational bullpen depth for Milwaukee during the stretch run.

Dodgers' Ariel Hernandez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Hernandez was removed from the 40-man roster after the Dodgers made a couple moves prior to Tuesday's trade deadline. Across 25.1 innings of relief with Triple-A Oklahoma City this year, Hernandez logged a 3.20 ERA and 1.67 WHIP. He hasn't pitched in any games for the Dodgers and only holds 19 major-league appearances to his name, all coming with the Reds in 2017.

Dodgers' Ariel Hernandez: Traded to Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds traded Hernandez to the Dodgers on Tuesday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Hernandez was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday but the team was able to flip him to the Dodgers for Zach Neal and Ibandel Isabel. The 26-year-old was at Double-A Pensacola for the Reds, but is now on the Dodgers' 40-roster and is headed for Double-A Tulsa, Eric Stephen of reports.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Cast off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Hernandez worked his way from Double-A up to the big leagues last season, but he struggled to the tune of a 5.18 ERA in Cincinnati. This was more of a procedural move than anything, as it allows the Reds to add Dylan Floro to the big-league roster. Hernandez will likely remain at Double-A as long as he clears waivers.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez has been optioned to Triple-A Louisville, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.

Hernandez reached the majors for the first time in 2017 and struggled to a 5.18 ERA in 24.1 innings. The 26-year-old struck out a solid 26.9 percent of batters but walked far too many at 20.4 percent. He'll return to Triple-A Louisville, where he struggled similarly, walking as many batters as he struck out (19) in 17 innings. He won't be a significant part of a major-league bullpen until he can improve his control.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Can't get any outs Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez faced four Brewers in the eighth inning Tuesday and retired none of them, allowing a two-run homer as well as three walks before being removed.

Fortunately for him, closer Raisel Iglesias cleaned up Hernandez's mess, but there's no doubt that the Dominican rookie has had a tough time of it in the majors, as evidenced by his 6.06 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 16.1 innings. On the bright side, he's struck out 24 batters in that span; however, he's also walked 13 and given up six homers. He'll need to do a lot better to guarantee himself a future in the Reds' bullpen.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Recalled from Triple-A Louisville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was promoted to the big leagues prior to Friday's game against the Pirates.

Hernandez will provide some more depth out of the bullpen for the Reds, as he's already made 10 relief appearances with the club this season. During 15.1 innings, he's posted a 5.28 ERA and 1.17 WHIP, which includes a disastrous outing against the Diamondbacks in late July. Besides that game, he's accumulated a solid 1.88 ERA and 18:8 K:BB for the year.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

Hernandez was called up earlier this month to bolster the Cincinnati bullpen, but was rocked for six earned runs in his last outing, Thursday against Arizona. The meltdown skyrocketed his season ERA to 5.28 over 15.1 innings, earning him the honor of being sent down to clear a roster slot for Saturday's starting pitcher, Robert Stephenson. Look for the right-handed reliever to see more opportunities at the Triple-A level and possibly vie for a late-season call-up.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Allows third homer of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez gave up a two-run homer in Sunday's loss to the Nats, one of five given up by the Reds and the third by Hernandez. Only one run was charged to Hernandez, who came on in relief of Homer Bailey.

Hernandez's line this season is pretty interesting -- after Sunday's outing he has a 1.88 ERA and 0.84 WHIP, with 18 strikeouts in 14.1 innings. But three of the four hits he has allowed have left the yard, and he has already allowed seven walks in that timeframe. If you squint, you can see some late-inning upside, but also a need for more refining.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Summoned from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

Mere days after being sent back to the minors, Hernandez will return to bolster the Reds' bullpen once more. The 25-year-old has a high-octane arm and plenty of strikeouts to his name, although it is notable that he allowed a home run in each of his previous two appearances in the big leagues. He'll fill the roster spot of Devin Mesoraco (shoulder), who was placed on the disabled list.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

He has a 2.00 ERA, 0.56 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB in nine innings in the majors this season, but gave up home runs in both of his last two outings, so he will head to the International League for a couple weeks before likely returning to Cincinnati. Saturday's starter Jackson Stephens was recalled in a corresponding move.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Still perfect after three outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After a perfect eighth inning Wednesday, Hernandez has retired all 14 batters that he's faced so far this season.

Hernandez has been hard to hit both in the majors on the minors, but in 33 innings at Double-A Pensacola he has walked 20 batters, suggesting that despite his great debut, there's still more refining necessary. Nonetheless, he has a live enough arm that it's not hard to project he could be helpful in a late-inning relief role.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was recalled from Double-A Pensacola on Monday.

Hernandez will be summoned from the minor leagues to fill the void left by Zack Cozart (quadriceps) and Bronson Arroyo (shoulder) heading to the disabled list. The 25-year-old right-hander has been stellar out of the Blue Wahoos' bullpen, producing a 2.18 ERA while striking out 39 batters in 33 innings. However, he continues to struggle with control, and given the other proven options in Cincinnati's pitching staff, it's hard to see him being anything more than a middle reliever during this cup of coffee with the major-league club.

April 25, 2017 04:12 PM
Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was optioned to Double-A Pensacola on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of reports.

As expected, the 25-year-old's stint with the Reds was a brief one, as he made just one appearance before being optioned back to Pensacola. Hernandez struck out five and didn't allow a hit through 2.2 innings in his lone outing, and could see another call-up in 2017 if he continues to display impressive stuff. Barrett Astin was recalled to offer another bullpen arm in a corresponding move.

Reds' Ariel Hernandez: Called up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez was recalled from Double-A Pensacola on Sunday.

Hernandez, 25, was dominant over his first seven relief appearances of the season with Pensacola, conceding just one run over eight innings while striking out 14 batters. Despite his success at the Double-A level, it's likely Hernandez's stay with the Reds will be brief, as the team likely just brought him aboard to give the bullpen another fresh arm after starting pitcher Cody Reed lasted just two innings Saturday against the Cubs. Don't expect Hernandez to see any work in high-leverage situations during his first taste of the majors.
