Reds Sign RHP David Hernandez To Two-Year Deal

Published

on

The Reds have signed RHP David Hernandez to a two-year deal worth a total of $5 million. Hernandez will make $2.5 million each year and can increase that figure to $3.5 million (for a total of $7 million) if he achieves certain performance-based bonuses each season.

The 32-year-old reliever is entering his ninth full season, as he missed the entire 2014 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Hernandez began his career as a starter for Baltimore in 2009, but went just 4-10 in 19 starts, posting a 5.42 ERA. After making another eight starts in 2010, he was moved permanently to the bullpen. He found success pitching in relief and hasn’t made a start since that 2010 season.

Hernandez seemed to really find himself at the beginning of last year, posting a 2.23 ERA in 36.1 innings with the Angels. After being traded to the Diamondbacks, his numbers took a bit of a hit, but he still finished the 2017 season with a 3.11 ERA in 55 innings.

Hernandez joins Jared Hughes as the only major league signings that the Reds have made this offseason.
