Super athletic, lanky, high-waisted 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame, Hernandez was a standout on the day. Posting a 7.14 60-yard dash with fluidity in his movements, and putting a loud showing at the plate in BP, he recorded a 92 mph exit velocity off the tee and will be able to put more power together in the future. Clean actions in the outfield, where he posted a 92 mph throwing velocity. Athleticism carried over well on the mound. Some length in the back side, cleanly reaches ¾ slot and is fast to extension. Fastball had lively burst at the end of heavy downhill angle at 87-90 mph. Nice ability to spin the curveball, late depth at 68-70 mph, and tigh slider at 76-77 mph. Changeup was 79 mph.

01.20.18 Hernandez has a long, lean frame at 6-foot-1, 165-pounds. The right-handed hitter starts from a tall, open, narrow stance with the barrel pointed back behind his head and a front arm bar. Turns inward as he strides forward, landing square and balanced. Uphill path creates lift, upper body rotational finish, line drive power and an exit velocity of 83 mph. Moves with quick footwork and long strides in the outfield, plays through the ball with rhythm, soft hands, and throws from a high slot with a long arm swing with a top velocity of 89 mph. On the mound, the right-hander works from a high slot with long arm stroke and reach out of the glove. Drop and drive delivery with an athletic finish. Hi fastball topped out at 82 mph, working mostly 79-81. His curveball has has 11/5 shape at 68-69 mph. Changeup shows good arm side fade at 72-74 mph.


06.13.17 - 6-foot, 160-pound, lean, projectable, still developing, long limbed frame. Hernandez raised some eyebrows with his arm strength in the outfield after throwing four consecutive strikes to the plate at 87, 88, 90 and 92 mph. Hernandez has a live body with a loose, quick arm stroke. He worked out in both the outfield and infield and is a long stride runner with an athletic gate and more speed and strength to come in the future. At shortstop he gets into a solid fielding position even though he catches the ball deep, but can also make the play on the run. In the outfield he plays through the ball with smooth rhythm. Offensively, the right-handed hitter starts from a balanced setup with smooth rhythm, an athletic leg kick and positive bat wrap into a short hand path. Hernandez has good energy in his swing, he stroked line drives during batting practice, and showed a good approach with barrel awareness.

On the mound, his velocity was 80-81 mph with a long, quick arm stroke from a high-¾ slot. Hernandez has an athletic, tall and fall delivery with good lower-half mobility and energy down the mound. His curveball had short, late break with 11-5 shape at 68-70 mph. His changeup was 73-74 mph with fade and fastball arm speed.
