  • Nationals' Yadiel Hernandez: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Hernandez was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    As a 35-year-old left fielder who has been worth exactly -0.1 fWAR in each of the past three seasons, it's easy to see why Hernandez was cast off the 40-man roster. This greatly diminishes his deep-league value, as the Nationals have one of the shallowest depth charts in the league, so Hernandez's value was solely tied to getting playing time for Washington in the short term.

  • Nationals' Yadiel Hernandez: Done for season

    Hernandez (calf) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

    The transaction officially ends Hernandez's season, as he only landed on the 10-day injured list nine days ago, so the schedule will end before his 60 days are up. The 34-year-old will end the year with a .269/.312/.410 slash line (good for a 100 wRC+) in 94 games.

  • Nationals' Yadiel Hernandez: Lands on injured list

    Hernandez was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a left calf strain, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Josh Palacios was recalled to replace Hernandez on the active roster. It's not entirely clear when this issue cropped up, though Hernandez had been out for three of four games prior to this move, so it may have been lingering. Hernandez will be eligible to return Aug. 30 should he prove ready.

  • Nationals' Yadiel Hernandez: Blasts off in Atlanta

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday in Washington's 4-3 loss to Atlanta.

    Washington is off to a 1-8 start to July, but it's through no fault of Hernandez, who is slashing .292/.346/.500 with three extra-base knocks so far this month. The recent surge has allowed him to re-solidify himself as the Nationals' top left fielder after he had been starting to lose playing time to the likes of Lane Thomas and Victor Robles toward the end of June. Hernandez will draw his eighth consecutive start Sunday and bat out of the No. 6 spot in the order.

    Hernandez ripped an RBI double off Aaron Nola in the top of the fourth frame, scoring Juan Soto and giving the Nationals a 1-0 lead. He later singled and scored in the seventh inning and added another double in the ninth frame. The outfielder has now gone 4-for-7 in the first two games of the series against the Phillies after he went hitless in the team's prior series versus the Marlins. Hernandez has produced a .341 average with a homer, six doubles, eight RBI and four runs over his last 14 games.
