Lancaster JetHawks (High A, Astros)
Good makeup; hustles out of the box and onto the field; always aware of the batters tendencies in CF (shifted a certain way); can get frustrated during an at-bat and expand the zone; plenty of desire.
50; Second-division starter
Wide stance; square to the pitcher; plus bat-speed; hands work well; very quick trigger; has a tendency for hard contact; crushes fastballs; can be fooled by off-speed; expands the zone; hands begin to drift forward early and can't stay back long enough and consistent enough to generate enough to bat speed/torque; a lot of check swings vs. off-speed; recognition is lacking at the moment; likes to attack pitchers early; swing has some loft and leverage; will always be some swing and miss in his game due to his aggressive approach.
Raw power is above average; surprising strength; bat speed and leverage to create backspin; attacks first pitch fastballs with the best of them; hitting a ton of doubles and triples at the present; will transition into over-the-fence power soon; hit tool will limit the power long-term; easy double-digit power down the line.
present above-average speed; 4.19-4.21 to first base consistently; 3.95 on a jailbreak bunt; more athletic than speed indicates; body is almost at maturity leading me to believe he can maintain his speed long-term; good base stealer; gets good jumps and reads the pitcher well; stole 3rd base when the pitcher fell asleep.
Above-average center fielder; gets good jumps off the bat; routes are solid; speed allows him to cover a ton of ground; plus instincts; made a ton of highlight reel plays.
Solid-average arm; has good carry; hits the cutoff man with ease; enough arm to stick in center; aggressive in other aspects, but not careless with the arm.
I was very impressed with the overall skill-set of Hernandez. He's a player who can display all five tools in the same game and have a huge impact. The hit tool is a work-in-progress due to his approach- which I'm not sure he can tone down due to his aggressive tendencies on a baseball field- but with plus bat-speed and good hands, I believe it can reach league-average going forward. The risk is tied to the hit tool, but I believe he can hit enough to allow his other tools to shine. 2nd-div starter for me with a chance for more if it all clicks.
