Hernandez spent 95 games behind the plate for the Legends in 2009, committing eight errors, with 14 passed balls, for a .989 Fld%. He allowed 57 stolen bases, catching 25 batters, for a 30% caught-stealing rate.
Hernandez did a pretty good job for the Gastros in Greeneville in 2008, hitting .298/.347/.447, so to see him slide back like this offensively - while the SAL isn't exactly known for being a hitter's league - is somewhat surprising. His K/PA rate has stayed pretty much the same throughout his four years in the Astros organization, so we'll just have to see what 2010 brings...and where. Hernandez started off strong, hitting three homers in April, before floundering until August, when he won a Trainee of the Month award from AC. Will he get another shot at Lexington, or move to Lancaster?
