Cesar Hernandez bulks up for 2017
Jim Salisbury reports Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez added 15 pounds of muscle over the winter. After a strong second half of 2016, Hernandez is looking to improve his game at the plate hitting more line drives hard into the gaps and putting himself in scoring position. He believes the added weight will not affect his speed, as his goal is to steal 30 bases this season.
Hernandez is the projected lead off man for the Phillies. Last season, he had an average of .294 and an OBP of .371. His 11 triples led the majors. The Phillies will keep him in the lead off position as long as he shows consistency, but with top prospect SS J.P. Crawford expected to make his debut in the majors this season we could see Hernandez and Freddy Galvis battle it out for time at second base. Hernandez could also emerge as a trade candidate this summer due to the depth of the infield.
