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.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was one of the standout batters of the 2020 season. His 16 home runs tied for seventh in the majors, he batted a career-high .289 and even chipped in six steals over 50 games. Hernandez had flashed power before, clubbing 22 and 26 homers the previous two seasons, but it usually came with a lowly batting average in the .230s. Hernandez clicked on all cylinders from the start, finishing with an xBA, xSLG, Hard Hit%, and Barrel% that were all above the 90th percentile. That's nothing unusual for Hernandez, who has posted superb barrel rates for the past four seasons. Now that he is hitting in the heart of a dangerous young Jays lineup, Hernandez is a five-category contributor who can be counted on as a strong second outfielder in fantasy leagues. Of course, his hard-hitting ways also come with a high strikeout rate that is consistently above 30%, making him slightly less valuable in points leagues. Hernandez should see his name called as one of the top 20 outfielders in fantasy drafts.
