by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is not starting Tuesday against the Angels.

He'll move to the bench after going 0-for-6 with a strikeout and three walks while starting the final two games of the weekend series in Baltimore. Charlie Culberson will man third base against lefty Packy Naughton on Tuesday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees.

While his nine steals in 33 games have certainly helped fantasy teams, he only plays against right-handed pitchers, and the Rangers face a handful of southpaws this week, beginning with Nestor Cortes in this one. Charlie Culberson will be the third baseman Monday.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez will sit Saturday against the White Sox.

Hernandez sits for the first time in a week. He hasn't done much at the plate in his 32 big-league games thus far, hitting .250/.354/.278, though he has helped fantasy teams out with nine steals. Brock Holt will be the Rangers' third baseman Saturday.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is not in Saturday's lineup against the Athletics.

Charlie Culberson gets the start at third base against lefty Cole Irvin. Hernandez has four steals in 18 at-bats over his last five games and could be a decent source of speed over the final three weeks of the season.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Continues to show speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 0-for-1 with two walks and a stolen base in Wednesday's 8-5 win over Arizona.

Hernandez also sacrificed in one of his four plate appearances Wednesday. He's racked up four stolen bases in his last four games, and he's up to eight thefts on the year. The 23-year-old infielder is slashing a reasonable .264/.356/.299 with five RBI, 11 runs scored and three doubles through his first 25 major-league games, but he's profiled as a contact hitter more than a power threat with just four home runs across four minor-league seasons.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Steals base, scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at shortstop and went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

Hernandez scored the first run in the Rangers' three-run fourth inning after singling and stealing second before a DJ Peters RBI single. It was the fourth theft in eight games for Hernandez. The Rangers continue to shuttle him between shortstop and third base, giving Hernandez four to five starts per week.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Swipes two bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 2-for-4 with two steals and a run scored in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Angels.

Hernandez, who returned to the lineup after sitting against a lefty Saturday, has sat the last three times Texas faced a southpaw. The two steals give him six in 22 games after stealing 21 in 61 games at Triple-A Round Rock. He could provide a late-season, unexpected boost in that category. With Nick Solak blocking him at second base, Hernandez will fight for playing time at third base along with Charlie Culberson until Andy Ibanez (hamstring) is ready to roll.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez will not start Saturday's game against the Angels.

Hernandez has been in the lineup more often than not since making his big-league debut in early August, but he hasn't done much at the plate, hitting .247/.341/.288 in 85 plate appearances. While he's reaching base at an acceptable clip and has stolen four bases, he only has three extra-base hits, all of which have been doubles. Charlie Culberson starts at third base Saturday.

September 1, 2021 12:32 PM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

Hernandez drew starts in each of the last four games and went 4-for-14 with a double, two runs, an RBI, a stolen base and two walks. He'll get a day off since Charlie Culberson is starting at the hot corner and batting seventh.

August 29, 2021 11:24 AM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Steals bag Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at third base and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Astros.

Hernandez swiped his fourth bag in 17 games since his contract was selected by the Rangers earlier this month. He's had double-digit steals in the minors the last three seasons and could be in line for consistent playing time, after Andy Ibanez was removed from Saturday's game with a hamstring injury. Ibanez had been moving around the infield, including third base. With Brock Holt and Charlie Culberson unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols, Hernandez may be a regular at the hot corner in the short term.

August 27, 2021 06:32 PM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is not starting Friday against the Astros.

Hernandez will sit for the second game in a row as Andy Ibanez shifts to the hot corner for the series opener against Houston.

August 26, 2021 04:40 PM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez isn't starting Thursday's game against Cleveland.

Hernandez doubled in Wednesday's loss to Cleveland, but he'll head to the bench for the second time in the last three games. Ryan Dorow will start at the hot corner and bat ninth.

August 24, 2021 08:36 PM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Absent from Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez is not starting Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

He has just two hits in his last 13 at-bats, so he'll take a seat for the second time in three games. Andy Ibanez will shift to the hot corner as Nick Solak starts at second base Tuesday.

August 21, 2021 03:36 PM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

Hernandez will have a chance to reset after he went 3-for-15 with two strikeouts across the last four games. Brock Holt will take over at third base and lead off.

August 16, 2021 09:44 AM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Bats leadoff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez batted leadoff and went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-4 win over Oakland.

Texas manager Chris Woodward switched Hernandez and Isiah Kiner-Falefa in the order, moving the rookie to leadoff while the veteran dropped to second. The tweak worked as the 23-year-old Hernandez reached base four times. He opened the game with a seven-pitch walk, then raced home from first on a double by Kiner-Falefa. The adjustment may benefit Kiner-Falefa, who is a career .344 hitter from the two hole.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Swipes two bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 5-4 triumph over the Mariners.

Batting second, Hernandez singled and stole second in the first and brought home an insurance run before stealing second again in the 10th. The thefts were Hernandez's first since being recalled. There may be many more considering the 23-year-old swiped 21 in 61 games at Triple-A.

Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Makes second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez started at second base and went 1-for-4 in Friday's 4-1 loss to Oakland.

Hernandez had his contract selected Thursday and started both games since joining the Rangers. He's played third and second base in his two games and brings elite defense to Texas' infield. The Rangers have several offseason questions and want to see if Hernandez can be an answer at second base, where Nick Solak fell off the cliff after a strong April.

August 5, 2021 12:28 PM
Rangers' Yonny Hernandez: Contract selected by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez's contract was selected by the Rangers on Thursday.

Hernandez progressed to Triple-A Round Rock to begin the 2021 campaign, and he recorded a .422 on-base percentage with a homer, 43 runs, 13 RBI and 22 stolen bases across 61 games. The 23-year-old will serve in a utility role after Eli White (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Hernandez will start at third base and bat ninth in his major-league debut Thursday. During his time in the big leagues, he figures to be one of the team's top options to serve as a pinch runner.
