2022 Fantasy Outlook
Hernandez made his major-league debut during the shortened 2020 campaign at 32 years hold, and he ended up appearing in 112 games for the Nationals last season. He hit .273/.329/.413 with nine home runs and 32 RBI, which was good for a 98 wRC+. Juan Soto is locked in right field for Washington, but Lane Thomas and Victor Robles don't have firm grips on the other two outfield spots. Hernandez should open the campaign as the No. 4 outfielder, but he could see at least semi-regular playing time given the low floor and inconsistency of the group behind Soto, though it may not end up making him a factor for fantasy purposes.

May 20, 2022
Hernandez isn't starting Friday's game against the Brewers, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez drew starts in the last five games and hit .300 with a homer, five RBI and two runs, but he'll get a breather with left-hander Eric Lauer on the mound for Milwaukee. Lane Thomas will start in left field and bat sixth.
