2022 Fantasy Outlook
Hernandez may not not have the upside that others on the Miami staff do, but what he lacks in stuff he makes up for in command when he can stay healthy. Hernandez was progressing nicely in 2020 before injuries ended his season and the same thing happened last year with both a biceps injury as well as a severe quad strain limiting him to 51.2 innings. He has never been able to stay on the mound for any length of time, and one wonders if his future is in the bullpen given the massive splits in his history. Hernandez has a 20.8 K-BB% with a 1.09 WHIP against righties but a 9.4 K-BB% and a 1.50 WHIP against lefties for his career. The lack of an effective changeup is mostly to blame and he cannot turn a lineup over a third time without one. He was attempting to use his changeup more last year, doubling its usage from 2020 before his injury. Read Past Outlooks

Hernandez and reliever Jeff Brigham were traded from the Marlins to the Mets in exchange for minor-league pitcher Franklin Sanchez on Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Hernandez will make his way to New York after being designated for assignment by the Marlins on Tuesday and dealt via trade a few days later. The right-hander appeared in 20 games with the Marlins in 2022, including 10 starts, producing an inflated 6.35 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 60 strikeouts over 62.1 innings. Hernandez will provide the Mets with an additional depth option for their starting rotation.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
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.
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.
