2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hernandez has pitched to a 5.11 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in nearly 150 innings at the major-league level. Last season saw some positive steps -- his 16.7 K-BB% should not be overlooked -- though the stuff that happened in between the strikeouts and walks is tough to overlook. He allowed 20 home runs in 82.1 innings of work, and lefties teed off on him to the tune of a .260/.341/.568 line last season. Nine of his 20 homers were hit by righties, but he held them to a .226/.296/.446 line overall. His flyball tendencies are better suited in Miami (4.26 ERA) than on the road (5.92 ERA). The issue with Hernandez is command of his pitches; when he misses, the batters do not. When he commands his stuff well, he can be successful. Right now home starts with righty-heavy lineups are his sweet spot. Read Past Outlooks

September 5, 2020
Hernandez (lat) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday and will therefore miss the remainder of the season.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez left his start Tuesday against the Blue Jays with right lat soreness, and the issue is evidently bad enough that he'll wind up getting shut down for the year. He'll end his third big-league season with a 3.16 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP in six starts. Both his 32.1 percent strikeout rate and 4.7 percent walk rate were excellent, though he'll head into 2021 with a fair amount of risk given his injury and the small size of his promising sample this season.
