The Red Sox have optioned LHP Darwinzon Hernandez to AAA Worcester. The plan is to stretch him out as a starter. The Sox also want to see more strike-throwing and consistency from him overall. (Sean McAdam on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The 22-year old struggled in Spring Training, but it looks like the Sox have a plan for him to improve. He was primarily a starter in the minors but only started 1 game with Boston in 2019. It will be worth looking at how this progresses as the season goes on. Hernandez has a lot of potential and could benefit the Red Sox sooner than later given their current pitching depth.
