WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Hernandez was 18 when he signed and was not a prominent signing.  He’s small in stature for a catcher.

2019
DSL:  232/316/244, 82 AB, 1 2B, 6 BB, 19 K, 3-3 SB

Hernandez split the catching duties on one of the Pirates’ DSL affiliates with two other catchers.  He didn’t hit much and showed no power at all, but he did throw out 53% of base stealers.

The Pirates brought Hernandez to fall instructionals, so he could be in the GCL in 2020.
