RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Hernandez was struggling so bad between June and August, he earned a trip back to Triple-A. Whatever he did in Reno worked because in September he allowed just one earned run in 14 innings. Once a closer candidate, the hard-throwing righty figures to be back in a middle-relief role in 2014, as the path to the ninth inning is much more crowded in Arizona following the addition of Addison Reed.

2013

Around signing a two-year extension with the D-Backs in June, Hernandez turned in the best season of his career with an elite 12.9 K/9 and improved 2.9 BB/9. Hernandez's most effective weapon is a sharp-breaking curveball, but he also throws a mid-90s fastball and an occasional changeup. With an arsenal suited to close, Hernandez simply needs an opportunity, but that will be more difficult to come by with the addition of Heath Bell (under contract through 2014) and the return of J.J. Putz (signed through 2014). Fortunately for those in deeper leagues, the ratios he provides are good enough to utilize him as a staff filler.

2012

Hernandez emerged as the primary setup man to J.J. Putz after the D-Backs acquired him from the Orioles in the Mark Reynolds deal last winter. With a 10.0 K/9IP, Hernandez's only weakness is inconsistent control. If he shaves his walk rate (3.9 BB/9IP), Hernandez has the tools to be an elite staff-filler type. When Putz landed on the DL in July, Hernandez racked up 11 saves in his absence and will be the closer-in-waiting should Putz miss additional time or get traded at some point. Unfortunately for Hernandez, Putz is under contract for 2012 and has a reasonably priced club option for 2013, so he may have to wait a couple of seasons before getting a crack at the full-time closer role.

2011

Hernandez struggled out of the gate as a starter and the Orioles moved him to the bullpen, which was rumored to be a plan long in the making given Baltimore's crowd of up-and-comers in the rotation. He was effective after the move and at one point it looked like the Orioles might be trying to make him their closer. Arizona acquired Hernandez in the Mark Reynolds trade and he should start the season as part of the D-Backs' rebuilt bullpen and bridge to new ninth-inning man J.J. Putz.

2010

In over half a season with the Orioles, Hernandez failed to translate his successful minor league strikeout rate to the big leagues. There are those that think Hernandez's future is in the bullpen and he could land there as soon as spring training since there are fewer spots - if any - open in the rotation. He is one to watch in spring training before drafting because he could win the No. 5 spot, break camp with the bullpen, or get more seasoning in Triple-A.

2009

Baltimore added Hernandez to the 40-man roster after a breakthrough season in Double-A, in which he went 10-4 in 27 starts and led the Eastern league with 166 strikeouts. He's not as highly-touted as some of the other young arms in the Baltimore system, but he is the most major league ready of a talented bunch. Hernandez should get a shot at some point in 2009, as the Orioles struggled to figure out their pitching woes in 2008, but had few options like Hernandez to turn to.
