BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Sometimes it feels like there are two groups of pitchers, those who know how to pitch and those who have immense physical gifts for it. Hernandez is a charter member of the first group, but will never be admitted to the second. He spots his upper-80s fastball where you would spot an upper-80s fastball if you had to face pro hitters: anywhere but the middle of the plate. Batters are kept off-balance with a few breaking pitches, none of which is better than average. He has All-Star makeup, but unless middle relievers get more recognition, itíll probably be the only thing All-Star about him.
