RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Carlos Hernandez.
Still climbing out of a hole after rotator-cuff surgery in '03, Hernandez fought his command at Triple-A last year. Wandy Rodriguez got the innings Hernandez should have and didn't pitch that well, so there's opportunity in '06. He's a deep sleeper, someone to keep in mind in the endgame. He could toss 70 innings of 3.50 ball, with 60 Ks.
Hernandez, once a highly-touted prospect in the Astros organization, has flopped thus far in his audition in the big leagues. The 2004 season was a tough one for Hernandez as the southpaw had an ugly 26/23 K/BB ratio in 42 innings. He'll need to make strides to earn a spot on the major league roster come Opening Day 2005.
Last season was a lost one for Hernandez, who underwent surgery in his right shoulder to repair tears in his labrum and rotator cuff. Generally it takes 12 to 18 months to fully recover from such an injury, so relying on anything meaningful from Hernandez in 2004 is a risky play at best.
Out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery in February.
