Hernandez allowed four runs while getting just one out before leaving the game, with Nick Wittgren taking over on the mound. The nature or severity of Hernandez's injury isn't yet clear.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Dealing with thumb issue
Hernandez left Friday's game versus the Rockies when a callus on his thumb opened up, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.
Hernandez took the loss after allowing four runs in one-third of an inning. He may be down for a day or two, but it's unclear if he'll need a stint on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Takes second loss
Hernandez (0-2) allowed a run on two hits and struck out two over one inning, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Cardinals.
Hernandez entered Tuesday on an eight-inning scoreless streak, but that ended when he gave up an RBI double to Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning. Overall, Hernandez has taken a step forward this season, working as an effective middle reliever and occasional opener. He has a 3.54 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 38:8 K:BB across 28 innings through 23 appearances. Hernandez also has three holds and a blown save, but he's unlikely to be much of a factor for high-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Starting again Sunday
Hernandez will start Sunday's game versus the White Sox, Pete Grathoff of The Kansas City Star reports.
Hernandez opened Wednesday's game versus the Padres and went two scoreless innings, striking out four and giving up two hits. He shouldn't be expected to work much deeper than that Sunday, so it's unlikely he'll be able to qualify for a win in what will probably amount to a bullpen game.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Strikes out four as opener
Hernandez allowed two hits and struck out four over two scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Padres on Wednesday.
Hernandez has kept runs off the board in five of his seven appearances in May, including this turn as an opener. The right-hander hasn't had much success at the major-league level, but he's been more effective as a reliever this season. He has a 4.09 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB through 22 innings while adding an 0-1 record, three holds and a blown save in 19 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Set for spot start
Hernandez will start Wednesday's game versus the Padres, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
The specifics of the Royals' pitching plan were not revealed, but Hernandez last pitched Saturday, so he's unlikely to be available for more than three innings. He's been a full-time reliever this season after coming up through the minors as a starter. Hernandez owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB over 20 innings across 18 relief outings in 2023. With Daniel Lynch (shoulder) a possibility to return next week, Hernandez is unlikely to get more than one turn as a starter.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Gets walked off Saturday
Hernandez (0-1) allowed a run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning, taking the walkoff loss Saturday versus the Brewers.
Hernandez got into trouble after Owen Miller's one-out double in the ninth inning put runners on second and third. Joey Wiemer then delivered a sacrifice fly for the walkoff win. Considering Hernandez had allowed just one run over his previous 10 innings, it's understandable that he'd get a look late in a tie game. He's had a couple of messy outings, but he's at a reasonable 4.74 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 22:8 K:BB over 19 innings this season. He's added three holds and a blown save in 17 appearances.... See More ...

Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Doing well in spring
Hernandez has covered five innings without allowing an earned run over three Cactus League appearances.
Hernandez has also posted a 6:1 K:BB with just three hits allowed. His workload hasn't been that heavy in the spring, but he's performed well in the limited sample. The 26-year-old right-hander looks set to fill a bullpen role as a multi-inning option this season. He struggled to a 7.39 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over 56 innings last season, but if he carries over his improved control from the spring to the regular season, he should at least enjoy a little more job security....

Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Likely for relief role again
Hernandez is expected to be a reliever again in 2023, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Hernandez has experience as a starter -- 21 of his 56 big-league appearances have been in that role. He struggled throughout 2022 with a 7.39 ERA, 1.84 WHIP and 35:31 K:BB across 56 innings. His ability to cover multiple frames will likely make him a low-leverage option in the Royals' bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Takes another loss
Hernandez (0-5) allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk in one inning, taking the loss Monday versus the Guardians.
Hernandez was tasked with the top of the 10th inning and faltered allowing a two-run double to Oscar Gonzalez. The Royals got one back in their half of the frame, but ultimately fell short, giving Hernandez his second straight loss. He's allowed four runs (three earned) over his last 2.1 innings. The struggling right-hander continues to put up lackluster number, as he now owns an 8.20 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 26:25 K:BB through 45 innings across 16 appearances (seven starts).... See More ...

Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Dealt fourth loss
Hernandez (0-4) allowed a run on a hit and a walk in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Friday versus the Tigers.
Hernandez allowed two of the three batters he faced to reach base, and Jose Cuas couldn't prevent the Tigers from scoring the go-ahead run in the seventh inning. Since he was recalled Aug. 13, Hernandez has given up six runs in 10.1 innings across seven appearances. He's struggled as both a starter and a reliever this year with an 8.18 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 26:24 K:BB across 44 innings through 15 appearances (seven starts). The 25-year-old should be expected to finish 2022 in a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Returns to majors
Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.
Hernandez was demoted in May after struggling to a 9.10 ERA in seven starts to open the season. He's returned to the majors twice since then, though both stints have been brief, resulting in just a single long-relief appearance. He'll likely fill a similar low-leverage role this time around....

Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Optioned to minors
Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Hernandez was recalled by the Royals on Sunday, but he will head back to Omaha one day later to open up a roster spot for fellow pitcher Daniel Lynch.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Back with big club
The Royals recalled Hernandez from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.
Hernandez should be available as a long-relief option for Kansas City over the next few days, but if he isn't needed out of the bullpen, he could be a candidate to fill the opening in the rotation that was vacated by Jonathan Heasley, who was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. The Royals will next require a fifth starter Thursday versus the Red Sox, and Hernandez would be a logical choice to pick up the spot start if rehabbing lefty Daniel Lynch (hand) isn't deemed ready to return from the 15-day injured list by that day....

Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Recalled from Triple-A
Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.
Hernandez made seven starts for the Royals early in the season and posted a 9.10 ERA and 2.16 WHIP in 29.2 innings prior to his demotion in mid-May. He isn't listed among the team's probable starters for the team's weekend series in Toronto so he should be available as a long reliever, as the club is dealing with several absences due to the vaccination requirements in Canada....

Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Heads back to minors
Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.
Hernandez was recalled from Omaha on Friday, and he allowed four runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out two in four innings during Friday's loss to the Blue Jays. He'll head back to the minors after Collin Snider was called up Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Demoted to Triple-A
Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.
The right-hander earned a spot in Kansas City's Opening Day rotation, but he's struggled through seven starts with a 9.10 ERA, 2.16 WHIP and 16:20 K:BB over 29.2 innings. Hernandez surrendered three runs over three innings Thursday against the White Sox, which was apparently the final straw. The 25-year-old could receive another look in the rotation later this season, but for now he'll attempt to straighten things out with Omaha. Brady Singer is the likely candidate to step into Hernandez's spot in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Struggles to find zone
Hernandez allowed three earned runs on five hits and five walks while striking out three across three innings Thursday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.
Hernandez struggled to find the strike zone as he walked two batters in the first inning and an additional three in the third. He managed to effectively work around the free passes, but he allowed four consecutive singles -- two of which didn't leave the infield -- to begin the fourth frame that accounted for two of his earned runs. Hernandez has had disastrous results across his last three starts, surrendering 18 earned runs across 11.2 frames. Overall, he has maintained a 9.10 ERA with a 16:20 K:BB for the season.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Struggles again Saturday
Hernandez (0-3) took the loss against Colorado on Saturday, allowing nine runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out three batters over four innings.
Hernandez fell behind early and yielded seven runs over his first three innings. Though he pitched a perfect fourth frame, he was pulled after starting the fifth by giving up a walk and a run-scoring double. Hernandez has given up 15 runs over his past two starts to push his season ERA to 9.11. He's in danger of losing his spot in the rotation, but if he gets another chance to smooth things out, it will likely come at home against the White Sox next week.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Carlos Hernandez: Gets knocked around in loss
Hernandez (0-2) was saddled with the loss after surrendering six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings Monday against the Orioles.
Hernandez cruised through four scoreless frames before running into trouble, allowing all six of his runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Monday's outing was his worst of the young season for the right-hander, who has allowed three or more runs in each of his first five starts. Hernandez will carry a 7.15 ERA and 1.90 WHIP into his next scheduled start, which tentatively lines up for Sunday in Colorado.... See More ... See Less
