2B,3B - FA - IL10
The Red Sox re-signed infielder Marco Hernandez.
The 27-year-old was non-tendered by Boston on Monday but is now back with the team. He'll provide infield insurance for the Red Sox in 2020.
Red Sox placed 3B Marco Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain.
Hernandez suffered the injury while attempting to field a ball in Wednesday's home win over Baltimore. Boston is really scraping the bottom of the barrel at third base, with Hernandez joining Pablo Sandoval and Brock Holt on the disabled list. Josh Rutledge will likely be the primary beneficiary.
Marco Hernandez was pulled from Wednesday's game against Baltimore due to a left shoulder strain.
Hernandez strained his shoulder in the top of the first inning while playing third base, and was pulled at the conclusion of the inning. He is scheduled to receive further evaluation on Thursday so expect an update in the next 24 hours. He's probably not on anyone's radar in season-long leagues, but is a deep-flier in GPP tournaments for DFS.
Marco Hernandez scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the eight inning in a victory over the Cubs, while batting 1-for-3 on the night.
Hernandez has become more involved in the Red Sox lineup to start the season as the primary infield backup. He led Boston in hits in spring training, and is batting .288 to start the season.
Marco Hernandez leads all Red Sox players with 15 hits thus far in Spring Training, with six RBI's, two stolen bases and a .405 AVG, including an impressive .488 on-base percentage.
Hernandez is no stranger when it comes to Spring Training success. The lefty had a strong spring training in 2016, but failed to make much of an impact once the regular season rolled around. There have been rumors that Hernandez will be used as trade bait once the regular season begins, as multiple reports indicate that he has little chance to make the team's roster coming out of camp. Red Sox brass will continue to monitor Hernandez's progress throughout the spring, but it sounds as if they will have a hard time stashing him in Triple A if he continues to dominate in Florida.
