Kike Hernandez rumor: Red Sox reportedly making progress on a deal

Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports the Red Sox and INF/OF Kike Hernandez "have made progress on a deal."

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez has been linked to Boston for a while now and would instantly become the favorite for everyday starts at second base. He also bring enough versatility to handle other positions as well. Red Sox president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom seems interested in bringing his platooning philosophy over from Tampa Bay.

Kike Hernandez is being pursued by the Red Sox

Free agent Kike Hernandez is getting pursued by the Boston Red Sox, who have a "strong interest" in him, according to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez would be a nice fit for the Red Sox as he offers defensive versatility and can mash left-handed pitching. He only slashed .230/.270/.410 with five home runs and 20 RBI last season for the Dodgers but he came up clutch in multiple spots during LA's run to a World Series title.

Kike Hernandez crushes game-tying pinch-hit HR on Sunday

Kike Hernandez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the Dodgers 4-3 win over the Braves in Game 7 of the NLCS on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez entered the game as a pinch-hitter for Joc Pederson in the sixth inning with the Dodgers losing 3-2. He put up a brilliant at-bat against A.J. Minter that ended with Hernandez crushing the eighth pitch over the wall in left-center. The Dodgers would take the lead in the following frame via a Cody Bellinger solo shot to advance to their third World Series in the last four seasons. The 29-year old utility man has done his job in a reserve role so far this postseason with a pair of clutch homers to go along with a .222 batting average and a .856 OPS over 18 at-bats.

Kike Hernandez drives in LA's only run with solo blast in Game 1 loss

Kike Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Dodgers 5-1 loss to the Braves in Game 1 of the NLCS on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Hernandez put the Dodgers on the board with a game-tying solo home run off of Max Fried in the fifth inning. That would be the only run the Dodgers would score as they managed just four hits as a team. Hernandez has had a quiet postseason, albeit in limited action, with a .125/.222/.500 with one home run and one RBI over eight at-bats.
