2021 Fantasy Outlook
Considering Hernandez only started six games, averaging about 4.1 frames per outing, the best way to describe his numbers is "encouraging." Hernandez recorded a 32.1 K% and 4.7 BB%. The resulting 27.4 K-BB% would have been fourth best if he worked enough innings to qualify. The uptick in strikeout rate was supported by more swinging strikes. Hernandez's season was cut short by a sore right lat, although he's on target to be ready in the spring. He continued to struggle with homers, surrendering five for a bloated 1.75 HR/9. Considering Marlins Park is one of the best pitching venues in the league, it's no surprise Hernandez fared better at home. He's earmarked for a spot in the Miami rotation and thus is an ideal candidate to use as a streamer for home games, or maybe more if last year's improvements prove genuine. Read Past Outlooks

Throwing from 60 feet
PMiami Marlins
Biceps
April 16, 2021
Hernandez (biceps) has been able to throw from 60 feet, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez failed to complete the third inning of his first start of the year before being forced to exit with biceps tendon inflammation. He remains without a clear timeline for his return, but the fact that he's begun throwing in some capacity represents a step in the right direction.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hernandez has pitched to a 5.11 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in nearly 150 innings at the major-league level. Last season saw some positive steps -- his 16.7 K-BB% should not be overlooked -- though the stuff that happened in between the strikeouts and walks is tough to overlook. He allowed 20 home runs in 82.1 innings of work, and lefties teed off on him to the tune of a .260/.341/.568 line last season. Nine of his 20 homers were hit by righties, but he held them to a .226/.296/.446 line overall. His flyball tendencies are better suited in Miami (4.26 ERA) than on the road (5.92 ERA). The issue with Hernandez is command of his pitches; when he misses, the batters do not. When he commands his stuff well, he can be successful. Right now home starts with righty-heavy lineups are his sweet spot.
