2021 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Yadiel Hernandez in 2021. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a $200,000 contract with the Nationals in September of 2016.
Takes seat Wednesday
OFWashington Nationals
May 5, 2021
Hernandez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez had started in right field in seven of the Nationals' last eight games, going 10-for-24 with a home run and four walks over that stretch. Though the Nationals brought back Juan Soto from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, he'll remain limited to a pinch-hitting role for the second day in a row since he hasn't been cleared for full throwing due to his strained left shoulder. Josh Harrison will get the nod in right field Wednesday, but Hernandez should be the primary option at the position until Soto receives clearance to play defense.
