To get the quick and dirty synopsis on my feelings on Luis Hernandez on this team, check out this preview for game 142 (Sept 11, 2010).
Profile: A light-hitting middle infielder that isn't even above-average defensively. He will forever be remembered for his 'Kirk Gibson moment' of fouling a ball off his foot, then hitting a home run off Tim Hudson and barely being able to run the bases.He had surgery to repair the fracture in September, and was not cleared to play yet when I was at Spring Training.
Good: He makes the league minimum ($414,000). He has "moxie." That's all he's got going for him. Seriously, that's it.
Bad: He can't hit (.245/.286/.298 in 120 games in the majors), doesn't know how to walk (4.8% BB rate vs 8.5% league average), and from all fielding metrics, is average at best.
|This is where Luis Hernandez Belongs if he still is with the Mets...|
Next up: Daniel Murphy and Justin Turner
