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. Read Past Outlooks

Delivers 4.1 scoreless frames
PMiami Marlins
August 5, 2020
Hernandez allowed only two hits and one walk over 4.1 scoreless innings during Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He had five strikeouts but didn't factor in the decision.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez held Baltimore hitless through four innings, but he was pulled with one out in the fourth inning after allowing a double and a single. The 25-year-old had a 5.03 ERA in 21 appearances for the Marlins last season, but he had an impressive showing in his first start of 2020.
