  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Kicks off rehab assignment Saturday

    Hernaiz (ankle) started at designated hitter in Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to Salt Lake on Saturday, going 1-for-3 with a double.

    The rookie infielder was logging his first game action since May 7 and put together an encouraging performance overall. Hernaiz figures to need an extensive rehab assignment given the amount of time he's been sidelined, and his next appearance with the Aviators may also see him play at least a partial game on defense.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Cleared for rehab assignment

    The Athletics sent Hernaiz to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday to begin a rehab assignment, Jason Burke of SI.com reports.

    Hernaiz didn't play Friday in Las Vegas' 4-2 loss to Salt Lake, but he should join the Triple-A lineup at some point later this weekend to kick off what will likely be an extended rehab assignment. The 22-year-old infielder has been on the injured list since May 8 with a significant left ankle sprain.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Begins hitting progression

    Hernaiz (ankle) has begun a hitting progression, MLB.com reports.

    Hernaiz was able to shed his walking boot in the first half of June, and he's now graduated to baseball work from the strength and fitness program. The infielder will likely progress to full baseball activities after the hitting progression before eventually embarking on what could be a fairly robust rehab assignment.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Sheds walking boot

    Hernaiz (ankle) is out of his walking boot and will begin a strength and fitness program this week, MLB.com reports.

    The 22-year-old has been making very slow progress from his severe ankle sprain, but it appears his recovery is starting to gather some momentum just over a month after he initially suffered the injury. Hernaiz's next step after the strength and fitness program will be to resume baseball activities, with the start date for that benchmark still to be determined.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Transferred to 60-day IL

    The Athletics transferred Hernaiz (ankle) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

    The transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-hander Aaron Brooks, who was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Astros. Hernaiz suffered a severe left ankle sprain last week and now won't be eligible to return until early July. Max Schuemann has since taken over as Oakland's everyday shortstop in his stead.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Dealing with severe ankle sprain

    Hernaiz, who was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier Wednesday, has been diagnosed with a severe left ankle sprain and will visit with a foot specialist, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Hernaiz was injured during Tuesday's 15-8 loss to the Rangers when he stepped awkwardly on first base and was subsequently placed on the IL. More should be known about a potential timetable for the rookie infielder following his exam, but Hernaiz looks as though he could be sidelined for weeks, if not months. The 22-year-old has slashed .182/.243/.182 over 75 plate appearances with Oakland this season and had recently been serving as the team's everyday shortstop.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Lands on injured list

    The Athletics placed Hernaiz on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left ankle injury.

    Hernaiz suffered the injury during Tuesday's 15-8 loss to the Rangers when he stepped awkwardly on first base while trying to beat out an infield hit. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Max Schuemann and Brett Harris could handle shortstop for the Athletics while Hernaiz is out.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Early exit with injury

    Hernaiz was lifted for a pinch runner and limped off the field after stepping awkwardly on first base Tuesday against Texas, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Hernaiz's day will be done after he sustained a left ankle injury trying to beat out an infield hit in the second inning. While he managed to beat the throw, Hernaiz was replaced by Max Schuemann and won't return to Tuesday's contest. The A's have a doubleheader with the Rangers on Wednesday, followed by a day off before a three-game set against the Mariners that begins Friday.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Getting regular run at shortstop

    Hernaiz will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    Hernaiz will draw his seventh straight start Wednesday, with three of his last four starts having come at shortstop. He appears to have moved ahead of Nick Allen on the depth chart at shortstop while recording five hits in 17 at-bats to go with four walks since he was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas last Thursday.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Makes splash in big-league return

    Hernaiz went 2-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and a run in a 3-1 win over the Yankees on Thursday.

    Hernaiz, who was called back up from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, made an impact from the bottom of the order for an offense-starved Oakland team. He had significant trouble mastering big-league arms to open the season, but he's in line for significant playing time while Zack Gelof (oblique) is on the 10-day injured list.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Back in big leagues

    The Athletics recalled Hernaiz from Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    He's taking the roster spot vacated by Zack Gelof (oblique). Hernaiz will be a candidate for reps at second base in Gelof's absence and he can handle shortstop and third base, as well. It's unclear how high he'll be in the pecking order, however, after he managed just a .103/.156/.103 batting line before being sent down.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Call-up likely due to Gelof injury

    Hernaiz is a likely candidate for a promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas if Zack Gelof's oblique injury forces him to go on the injured list, MLB.com reports.

    Gelof was held out of Wednesday's loss to the Yankees with what was originally described as abdominal soreness, and he was eventually diagnosed with a left oblique strain and labeled as a likely IL candidate. If that indeed comes to pass, it appears Hernaiz, who's hit .211 over his first six games with Las Vegas since his demotion last Thursday, would make a quick return to the big-league club. Hernaiz has experience at second base, third base and shortstop, and but he scuffled to a .103/.156/.103 slash line across his first 32 plate appearances to start the season before being sent down to the Aviators.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Homers in first minors game

    Hernaiz, optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over Tacoma on Thursday.

    Hernaiz put the first runs of the night on the board in the third inning with his shot to center field. The 22-year-old struggled badly with big-league pitching during his 17-game stint in the majors, but he fashioned a .319/.384/.454 slash line across 131 games between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Las Vegas last season and has picked up where he left off in the minors.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Shuttled to Las Vegas

    Hernaiz was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Hernaiz had started seven of the last eight games for the Athletics, though he went just 3-for-20 with six strikeouts in that span. It's very likely that he'll be back in the majors at some point in 2024, though there's no indication of how long the team plans to keep him in the minors. The move should give Nick Allen the starting job at shortstop while creating a roster spot for Brent Rooker (ribs) to be activated off the injured list.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Seizing hold of regular role

    Hernaiz will start at third base and bat sixth Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Though he's drawing a start at the hot corner in the series finale, Hernaiz appears to have leapfrogged Nick Allen on the depth chart at shortstop. Hernaiz will be making his fifth straight start and his seventh in eight games, despite having recorded just two hits through his first 26 at-bats in the majors. Hernaiz remains one of the top positional prospects in the organization, so he could continue to play regularly while the 7-11 Athletics don't fancy themselves as contenders.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Retreats to bench Saturday

    Hernaiz will not be in the starting lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Hernaiz has yet to record a hit this season, going 0-for-9 with four strikeouts. His start against lefty Tarik Skubal on Friday was just his second start in the A's last six games.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Shifts back to bench Saturday

    Hernaiz is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.

    Hernaiz got the start at third base Friday against left-hander Logan Allen, with the former finishing 0-for-2. With right-hander Tanner Bibee taking the mound Saturday, the Athletics will start J.D. Davis at third base, while Ryan Noda moves back into the lineup at first.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Wins spot on roster

    Manager Mark Kotsay said Monday that Hernaiz will be on the Athletics' Opening Day roster, Jason Burke of SI.com reports.

    Hernaiz has played well in spring training, slashing .313/.340/.333 with six RBI over 48 at-bats while showing defensive improvement at shortstop and third base. His spot on the Opening Day roster looked to be up in the air after the Athletics signed J.D. Davis on March 15, but Hernaiz will start 2024 in the majors as a versatile infield option.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Could be impacted by Davis signing

    Hernaiz, who has been making a push for an Opening Day roster spot at third base, could now begin the season in the minors due to the signing of J.D. Davis on Friday, Martin Gallegos and Manny Randhawa of MLB.com report.

    Hernaiz has stood out for his improved defense at the hot corner this spring, but his .281 batting average (10-for-35) comes with zero extra-base hits and a 1:6 BB:K. The addition of a proven commodity in Davis potentially changes the infield equation in the short term, but Hernaiz is still an excellent candidate to see a solid amount of big-league at-bats during the coming season.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Defensive improvement evident

    Hernaiz, who's hitting .240 with five RBI across 10 Cactus League games, is making a strong bid for an Opening Day spot with improved arm strength and footwork, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Hernaiz came into spring camp needing to improve his overall infield defense, and he's been able to make significant progress over the last several weeks. Hernaiz has been splitting time between shortstop and third base, and although the former is his natural position, the latter may be his best path to an Opening Day roster spot. Hernaiz is also holding his own with the bat against big-league arms this spring, and he posted a remarkable .319/.384/.454 slash line and 13.4 percent strikeout rate across 131 games between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Las Vegas last season.
