BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 After Hernandez's year in the cold, isolated world of Tommy John rehab, the former setup man was eased back into pitching duties, taking much lower-leverage innings for four months while trying to kick his nasty home run habit. Not to pile on, but allowing a career-high BABIP in a walk year was unfortunate, to say the least. Still, the fastball and slider have the same pre-surgical properties, and while lefties bully his fastball, he'll get to make his case to return to situational late-inning specialist work.
2015 Once a closer candidate, David Hernandez is just looking for a role after missing the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery.
2014 In previous years, Hernandez was a trendy, underground pick to close games, because the guy who never failed as a full-time closer is always the popular candidate. But in a year when the Diamondbacks dropped fliers onto Maricopa County looking for volunteers to shut down the ninth inning, a struggling Hernandez missed his window. He now profiles more as a set-up specialist due to his crippling fear of lefties, who last year hit eight dingers off him in 125 plate appearances as he ditched his changeup. Splits don't get saves, but there's no shame in staring down three right-handers in a late inning.
2013 When Hernandez was acquired from Baltimore in the winter of 2010-11, much of the focus was on the player who went the other direction. The exile of Mark Reynolds spoke volumes about the D-Backs' commitment to shedding strikeouts from the lineup. But when the smoke cleared, it became apparent that Arizona had acquired a helluva relief pitcher. Hernandez has improved in each of the past three seasons, beginning with his transition to the bullpen in May 2010, and last year he took his game to the level of baseball's burgeoning class of elite relievers. His pitch velocity has increased since his Oriole days, and Hernandez has both the numbers and the stuff to challenge J.J. Putz for the closer throne. Hernandez may have to wait for Putz's contract to expire before he can begin compiling his own salary-inflating save totals.
2012 After converting to relief in late May 2010, Hernandez picked up a mile per hour on his fastball and nearly doubled his K rate to 10.9 per nine. Both upticks proved sustainable in his first big-league season spent entirely in the bullpen after Kevin Towers took a liking to what he saw of the new Hernandez and acquired him in the Mark Reynolds deal. Hernandez rewarded Towers’ faith with a strong setup season, earning the highest-leverage outings of any Arizona pitcher other than J.J. Putz. He did limit opposing batters to a .253 BABIP and only four home runs despite the second-highest fly ball percentage among Diamondbacks who pitched at least 50 innings, so there could be some regression coming.
2011 Despite, as we said here last year, “handing out home runs like they were business cards,” Hernandez won the fifth starter’s job in spring training, beating out Chris Tillman. Eight starts later, he was sent to the bullpen with a 5.31 ERA and sub-one strikeout-to-walk ratio. He took a brief stab at closing before giving over to Alfredo Simon, and thereafter remained in the pen, pitching in the seventh and eighth innings. Hernandez seems to have found a home there; his ERA was 3.16 as a reliever and his strikeout rate jumped from 5.7 per nine innings to 10.9. As Ray Davies sang in 1967, “This is where I belong.” Hernandez will remain in relief after being targeted by bullpen-builder extraordinaire Kevin Towers in the December trade that sent him to Arizona.
2010 Could this have been the same David Hernandez who, two years in a row, led his league in strikeouts? He was well on his way to doing it again in Norfolk last year; Tommy Hanson was the only pitcher in Triple-A keeping up with him. True, that old version of Hernandez was always an extreme fly-ball pitcher, and this guy had the lowest ground-ball percent in the league while still handing out home runs like they were business cards. We did caution last year that he relied on a form of deception that might not fool major leaguers. The major-league strikeouts never materialized, and Hernandez was lucky his ERA wasn't another run higher; he's been tateriffic all along. His actual homers-allowed figures were manageable in the minors, but major-league hitters hit a lot more homers than minor leaguers, so being below league average will kill you faster in the majors than it would in the minors; it's a very nonlinear effect in the case of extreme fly-ball pitchers.
2009 With Hernandez, you have a player who set school records in juco ball for strikeouts, led the Carolina League in strikeouts in 2007, led the Eastern League in strikeouts in 2008, yet he still isn't seen as an especially good prospect. That's because he's got a strange, deceptive delivery that scouts think won't play in the majors. He's also had a bad habit of grooving pitches when he gets behind in the count; he still gets behind, but at least he gave in a lot less often in 2008.
2008 Hernandez is a power pitcher with a good fastball/slider combo, he's durable, and he's inconsistent. That creates a split between the stat and scout perspectives, with the scouts drooling over the good outings and the analysts backing off because of the bad ones. He could be just a few adjustments from taking off, but he could also never make those adjustments and go nowhere.
