Hernandez hit .279 with 14 home runs and a career-high 71 RBIs in 2019, being one of the few bright spots for the Phillies, who could not stay on top following a hot start to their year. He has started with Philadelphia since 2015, replacing Chase Utley when he moved on to the Los Angeles Dodgers before retiring. The switch-hitter had a .294 average in 2016 and 2017 to lead the team in both seasons, and had a career-high 15 home runs in 2018.
He has been productive throughout his career, especially while posting a 2.5 wins-above-replacement over the past four seasons. Since leaving Venezuela, Hernandez has spent his entire career with the Phillies, whom he signed with in 2006. He now joins The Tribe, who has been consistently competitive atop the AL Central Division over the past five years, and this addition can only help them with that. The Venezuelan has a career .277 average with 253 RBIs and a .352 on-base percentage.
