RotoWire News: Phillies first-base coach Mickey Morandini said he is encouraged by the progress Hernandez has made improving his stolen base technique this spring, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. (3/23/2017)

Profile: Hernandez is a respectable second-division starter coming off what appears to have been a fluky season. It all started on a sour note. His aggressive, no-power approach yielded a utility quality .291/.329/.377 line through the first three months. As the calendar flipped to July, Hernandez started to walk. A lot. His walk rate spiked from 5.5% for April-June to 15.8% for July-October. Usually, a change in discipline is matched by an increase in strikeouts, but Hernandez held steady. The result: a .298/.413/.411 slash in the second half. If the sudden walk-rate boom sounds familiar, it's because Odubel Herrera experienced similar success in April. Teams thought he'd swing at anything so they worked outside the zone. And he walked a lot. Most likely the scouting report on Hernandez was wrong and nobody bothered to make an adjustment. While he did swing at fewer pitches outside the strike zone in 2016, he was so punchless that opposing pitchers should just throw more strikes. In other words, forget about a .400 on-base percentage. On the plus side, his raw speed is better than the 17-for-30 stolen-base rate he contributed last season. He'll probably attempt another 30 steals with more success in 2017. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: Hernandez had a weird three-month bump to his walk rate at the end of last season. Pitchers are likely going to attack him more directly in 2017, possibly leading to a higher batting average.
