BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Hernandez looks at first glance like the archetypal useful glove-first shortstop, but he might be a little more than that. The first question, though, is whether he'll be able to put everything together to reach even that modest potential. He doesn't have the frame to hit for serious power, but he isn't destined to be some slap-hitting groundball machine either. He has a line-drive swing that could give him a decent average and modest doubles power, and given his fielding potential, that may be all he needs. He's rangy and has a strong arm, but he'll need to cut down on his errors to be the player he can be.
