Former Phillie Yoel Hernandez was recently signed to a minor-league deal along with ten others. Hernandez was with the Phils throughout the 2007 season. He finished the year with only 14 appearances, an 0-0 record, and 5.28 ERA. Opponents were hitting over .300 against the right hander.
The bottom line: Hernandez will likely spend the season with AAA Lehigh-Valley. If there is a Major injury to a right handed reliever, Hernandez could spend a little time with the big club. It is unlikely however, he will affect the orginization at all. (Below are Hernandez’s 2007 Numbers with the Phillies)
