Cesar Hernandez and Tigers agree to Minor League Deal

Cesar Hernandez and the Detroit Tigers agreed to a Minor League deal today, according to Jon Heyman. Hernandez, the 32-year-old infielder, spent the 2022 season with the Washington Nationals, playing in 147 games for the National League club. Evan Petzold is reporting the deal is for one year, $1.5 million with incentives in the MLB; he did receive an invitation to Spring Training.

Why it Matters:

Hernandez is a switch-hitting second baseman, that provides speed, athleticism, and the ability to get on base.

  • Hernandez has over 8,000 innings at second base, where he's produced positive WAR in his career.
  • He has a career wOBA of .315 and a 96 wRC+.
  • He doesn't hit the ball hard, but can draw walks (9.4% for his career), and doesn't chase the ball or whiff often.
  • He could slot in to second base, should he make the team, while the team finds Jonathan Schoop a home, potentially at the vacant third base spot.
