Player Outlook
Enrique Hernandez's time in Boston ended with a whimper, as he struggled to a .599 OPS in 86 games with the Red Sox last season before being traded. The Dodgers brought him back to Los Angeles, where he had enjoyed his most success, and Hernandez indeed rebounded down the stretch. He was even included on the team's NLDS roster and will return to the Dodgers in 2024, having signed a one-year deal in February. After his 2018 season, it looked like Hernandez might break the chains of merely being a utility/platoon player, but at this point in his career he will have to accept a niche role. Hernandez, now 32, is a career .239 hitter with modest power and little speed. Coming off double hernia surgery in October, he may be eased into action this spring, though the team expects him to be available for the March 20-21 series against the Padres in South Korea.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Out of lineup versus righty

    Hernandez isn't in the Dodgers' lineup versus the Rangers on Thursday. Hernandez is on the bench again with righty Michael Lorenzen on the mound for the Rangers. Recently acquired Cavan Biggio has the start at third and is batting eighth Thursday. Hernandez, who was serving as the primary third baseman in Max Muncy's absence due to an oblique strain, appears set to fill that role against lefties while Biggio starts versus righties. For the season, Hernandez has a .724 OPS against lefties and a .493 OPS against righties.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Sitting Wednesday

    Hernandez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers. Hernandez will sit for the second consecutive contest after starting the previous four games at third base. The 32-year-old has a .591 OPS in 155 plate appearances this season, and the acquisition of Cavan Biggio -- who is starting at the hot corner Wednesday -- could result in a reduced role for Hernandez.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: On bench Tuesday

    Hernandez isn't in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday versus the Rangers. Hernandez has been the primary third baseman for the Dodgers while Max Muncy nurses an oblique injury. In the three-game series versus the Yankees that ended Sunday, Hernandez went 3-for-10 with a home run and a double. With the 32-year-old on the bench Tuesday, Miguel Rojas is starting at third base and will bat ninth.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Slugs homer in victory

    Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run and a walk Saturday in an 11-3 win against the Yankees. Hernandez produced just enough power to poke a solo shot to the right-field porch in the fifth inning, giving Los Angeles a 3-2 lead. The veteran utility man made his third straight start at third base, and he's notched an extra-base hit in each of those games, going 3-for-10 with two doubles and Saturday's homer along with three walks. Max Muncy (oblique) is on a slow ramp-up and figures to be out of action beyond next week, so Hernandez could be in for relatively consistent playing time in the short term.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Sitting in second straight

    Hernandez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates. Since Max Muncy made his last start May 15 before landing on the injured list with an oblique strain, Hernandez has served as the Dodgers' primary option at the hot corner. However, after starting at third base in the first seven games of Muncy's absence, Hernandez's hold on an everyday role may be slipping. He'll be on the bench for the second day in a row, with Chris Taylor getting the nod at the hot corner Wednesday after Miguel Rojas occupied the position Tuesday. Hernandez's move to the bench comes while he's supplied just five hits in 37 at-bats (.135 average) over his last 13 games.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: On bench Friday

    Hernandez is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds. Hernandez will take a seat after making six consecutive appearances. Miguel Rojas will man third base and bat ninth.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Launches third homer

    Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks. Hernandez has homered twice in his last six games, though both have been solo shots as well as his only RBI in that span. The utility man is slashing just .216/.287/.320 with three homers, eight RBI, seven runs scored and no stolen bases over 108 plate appearances this season. Hernandez has started five straight games at third base since Max Muncy (oblique) exited the lineup, so it appears Hernandez has a path to steady playing time for now.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Homers off bench Monday

    Hernandez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-4 extra-inning win over the Giants. Hernandez opened May in an 0-for-11 slump, but he's hit safely in each of his last two games, including his seventh-inning blast as a pinch hitter Monday. The utility man is at a poor .220/.278/.305 slash line with two homers, seven RBI, six runs scored and one double through 90 plate appearances. Hernandez hasn't been strictly limited to a short-side platoon role, but that may change once Jason Heyward (back) is able to return from the injured list.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Goes yard in win

    Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals. Hernandez took Patrick Corbin deep to center field in the fifth to add on to the Dodgers' lead. It was his first home run and first extra-base hit of the season, as he's been struggling at the plate early on, slashing just .200/.233/.275 with four RBI, two runs and a 2:10 BB:K in 43 plate appearances.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Draws sixth start of season

    Hernandez will start in center field and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Cubs. The utility man will be making his sixth start through the Dodgers' first 12 games, with four coming in center field and one apiece coming in left field and at third base. Hernandez will likely have a regular spot against left-handed pitching throughout the season, but the Dodgers may need to be hit harder by the injury bug before he gets more frequent looks versus right-handers, though Jason Heyward being out with a back injury opens things up a bit on that side.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Expected for Korea series

    Dodgers general manager Brandon Gomes said Monday that Hernandez (groin) is expected to be on the active roster for the team's two-game series against the Padres in South Korea on March 20 and 21, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Hernandez had double hernia surgery in October and is now getting a late start to camp after signing with the Dodgers on Monday. However, the team still anticipates the utility player having enough time to ramp up for its early series overseas. Hernandez should see plenty of starts against left-handed pitching for the Dodgers this season.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Back with Dodgers on one-year deal

    Hernandez (groin) confirmed via social media Monday that he agreed to a one-year contract with the Dodgers. Multiple reports suggested that a deal between Hernandez and the Dodgers was close, and the veteran utility man verified himself that the deal is done. The Dodgers suddenly had a need for a right-handed hitting outfielder after trading away Manuel Margot earlier Monday, and Hernandez can fit that bill along with offering infield protection, as well. He had just a .599 OPS in 86 games for the Red Sox last season but finished much stronger with the Dodgers in posting a .731 OPS in 54 contests. Hernandez underwent double-hernia surgery in October but is expected to be healthy when he reports to spring training.

  • Enrique Hernandez: Recovering from hernia surgery

    Hernandez underwent double-hernia surgery Oct. 24, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Hernandez is expected to be able to resume baseball activities by early December, but this news will further cloud his free-agent appeal. The 32-year-old utility player has batted just .230/.290/.349 in 233 games (910 plate appearances) since the beginning of the 2022 campaign.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Playing center field in Game 3

    Hernandez is playing center field and batting seventh Wednesday in Game 3 of the NLDS at Arizona. Hernandez hit an RBI single off the bench in Monday's Game 2 loss and will now get the nod over James Outman in Game 3 as the Dodgers look to avoid being swept by the Diamondbacks. Hernandez went 2-for-5 with a double and a homer against Game 3 starter Brandon Pfaadt during the regular season.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Enters lineup Friday

    Hernandez was a late addition to Friday's lineup, and he'll start in left field while hitting seventh. Hernandez was not included in the original lineup, but he replaced David Peralta, who was scratched for an unknown reason. Hernandez has nine hits across 27 at-bats in his last 10 games, including a home run and two doubles.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Goes deep Friday

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and a walk Friday in an 8-5 victory against the Nationals. Hernandez hit one of three homers for the Dodgers off MacKenzie Gore in the contest, swatting a solo shot to left field in the fourth inning. Hernandez continues to see semi-regular playing time for Los Angeles despite not being the primary option at any position, and he's gone 5-for-12 with two RBI over his past three games. Since rejoining the Dodgers via trade July 25, the utility man is slashing .265/.326/.436 with three homers, 18 RBI and 13 runs over 36 games.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Retreats to bench Sunday

    Hernandez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox. The utility man will head to the bench after he started in each of the past four games while going 5-for-18 with one home run, three doubles, two walks, five RBI and two runs in addition to picking up reps in center field and at third base and shortstop. He should be a mainstay in the lineup versus left-handers and will see occasional starts versus right-handed pitching.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Has productive day at plate

    Hernandez went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Guardians. Hernandez doubled in his first at-bat before coming around to score on a Mookie Betts single, giving the Dodgers their first run of the game. The utility player then chipped in an RBI double and a solo homer in his final two plate appearances, giving him his first long ball since Aug. 7. It was just his third three-hit performance this season, but two of them have come since he was re-acquired by Los Angeles. He's now batting .292 in August with two homers, 15 RBI and 11 runs scored and has driven in two runs in back-to-back games.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Hitting well since return to LA

    Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and a walk Monday in a 13-7 victory over San Diego. Hernandez went deep in the sixth inning, swatting a solo shot to left-center field. It was his first long ball since rejoining the Dodgers as a result of a July 25 trade with the Red Sox. Hernandez has played regularly since returning to the National League and hit well, slashing .324/.350/.541 with five doubles, Monday's homer, seven RBI, five runs and a 2:3 BB:K over 40 plate appearances.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Returning to Dodgers in trade

    The Dodgers acquired Hernandez in a trade from the Red Sox on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The Red Sox will receive pitchers Nick Robertson and Justin Hagenman in return for Hernandez, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.com. Hernandez has posted an ugly .222/.279/.320 batting line in 323 plate appearances this season after also struggling at the dish in 2022, but he can play shortstop and second base, and the Dodgers need help at both spots. The 31-year-old seems likely to operate in a super-utility role, even covering some outfield, as he makes his return to Los Angeles. He played six seasons with the Dodgers between 2015 and 2020.
