Behind the Backstop: Burn Notice

Tory Hernandez

Tory's experience in the baseball industry includes a four-year stint as the Manager of Baseball Operations for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, where his responsibilities were comprised of contract negotiation, advance scouting, and the development and implementation of the organization's statistical research methods and use of analytics. Most recently, Tory served as the Director of Pro Scouting & Recruiting for Boras Corporation.

Up first is Oakland right-hander Raul Alcantara, who was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2009 for $500,000 by the Red Sox. He was subsequently traded to the A's in 2011 in the deal that netted the A's Josh Reddick and sent Andrew Bailey to New England. Not only does this trade look great for Oakland so far, but also, Alcantara has a chance to make it look like a huge steal.
