Teoscar Hernández News
The Seattle Mariners are expected to acquire outfielder Teoscar Hernandez from the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday in exchange for reliever Erik Swanson and left-handed pitching prospect Adam Macko, according to multiple MLB sources. Hernandez will effectively take over for Mitch Haniger, who will leave in free agency this offseason. The 30-year-old Dominican outfielder was an All-Star for the first time in 2021 and followed that up by hitting .267/.316/.491 with an .807 OPS, 25 home runs, 77 RBI, 71 runs scored and six stolen bases in 535 plate appearances over 131 games in Toronto. He'll be leaving one potent lineup for another and should remain very attractive in fantasy for his power RBI abilities with his new squad.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of a doubleheader to wrap up the regular season. The Blue Jays will give Hernandez a little breather, but he'll likely be back in the lineup for Game 2. He's been hot at the plate of late and is batting .269/.317/.495 with an .812 OPS, 25 home runs, 77 RBI, 71 runs scored and six stolen bases in 495 at-bats on the year. Jackie Bradley Jr. is getting the start in right field and will hit seventh against Orioles right-hander Mike Baumann in Game 1. Since the start of September, Bradley is hitting just .180 (7-for-39) with a homer, five RBI and 11 strikeouts in 22 games.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was mashing on Sunday, getting three hits in four at-bats, two of which were home runs. He ended the game with a pair of runs and three RBI. Hernandez has gone deep four times in his last seven games. The 29-year-old has taken a bit of a step back after a spectacular 2021 season, slashing .267/.316/.495 with 25 HRs, six steals, 70 runs, and 77 RBI. With three more games left, fantasy managers should continue to start Hernandez to help in every category, besides maybe stolen bases.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was productive once again in 2022. He slashed .267/.316/.491 with 25 HRs, 71 runs, and 77 RBI across 131 games. Hernandez stole just six bases a season after swiping 12, but he still posted 84th-percentile sprint speed and might be more aggressive with Seattle, who have the 10th most stolen bases since 2020. The 30-year-old's batting average dropped from .296 in 2021, largely due to fewer line drives (24.8% line drive rate) and an increased 28.4% strikeout rate. However, Hernandez was one of the best at hitting the ball hard with 96th-percentile average exit velocity, and he still hit .289 despite a 30.4% strikeout rate in 2020. It's a given that he'll go deep a bunch next year. Hernandez owns a career 14.1% barrel rate and has hit an abundance of fly balls, including a 25.6% mark this season. Fantasy managers might not like the move to T-Mobile park. But the two-time Silver Slugger would have hit 31 long balls if he played all of his games in Seattle, compared to 28 at the Rogers Centre. And with Hernandez's ability to homer, he'll easily collect 80-plus RBI while scoring enough runs in a home run-happy lineup. All told, he'll provide value in multiple categories without hurting others. Hernandez is worth his 72 ADP and is a better option than many outfielders around him.
