2013 Diory Hernandez is getting better at using a bindle stick but no better at using a bat.
2012 Outrighted to the minors by Atlanta in August, Diory Hernandez had shown offensive life in the minors before, but flatlined in 2011. The Astros provide one of the best environments for him to sneak onto a roster as a utility infielder.
2011 Diory Hernandez can play second base, third base, and shortstop with great aplomb, but that damn rulebook doesn't allow non-hitting designated fielders.
2010 The Braves must have felt like the victims of some kind of bait-and-switch when they called up Hernandez in late May due to a hip injury suffered by Yunel Escobar. He was hitting .355 at Triple-A at the time of the call, so the Braves thought they'd get a guy who could hit, but whose defense at short might fall a little... short. Instead, he shocked the team with his defensive prowess, but to say he didn't hit a lick would be too kind. The team hopes Hernandez, a .301/.350/.411 hitter in the minors over the last three years, was suffering from first-time jitters and adjusting to not playing every day. He can still turn into a solid bench player.
2009 A utility prospect if there is such a thing, Diory Hernandez provides solid defense at the three infield skill positions, and average-driven production at the plate, but he's a brutal basestealer (55 percent career success rate).
2008 An injury to second baseman J.C. Holt opened up a spot for Hernandez at Double-A, and he played well enough to stay there after Holt returned, sliding to shortstop after Brent Lillibridge's promotion. Hernandez is more extra infielder than starter, with good hands and a low-power approach at the plate.
