RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hernandez skipped Low-A ball and went straight to High-A Salem in 2011. He was successful in locating his fastball and limiting opponents to a .241 average. As he ascends the ranks, location will be a key for Hernandez, who doesn't overpower hitters with his high-80s fastball. Along with location, control is important as well as improving his curveball. If he can get hitters in the upper levels of the minors out, the Red Sox will keep him on a starting pitcher's career path. Look for him to open the year at Double-A Portland.
Hernandez made one appearance for Short-Season Lowell last summer after being drafted in the seventh round out of the University of Miami, where he enjoyed pretty good success. He has good command of all of his pitches and shows great poise on the mound. Given his three years of college, Hernandez will likely jump to Low-A Greenville and may move up depending what he shows at that level. 2011 is all about learning where he is in his development.
