Profile: It's probably time to realize that Hernandez circa 2012 is gone. The former standout Diamondbacks reliever was "OK" in his first season in Philadelphia, but "OK" is probably not something terribly useful to either the Phillies or fantasy rosters. Hernandez saw a slight uptick in both his strikeout and walk rates in 2016, but other than moving a couple hard-hit balls to the medium-hit category, he looked pretty much like the guy we've seen the last few years. There was a slight uptick in the swinging strike rate (from 10 to 12%), but the fastball velocity continued its slow trend downward. What else do you expect from a guy heading into his age-32 season? The righty elected free agency after his one-year deal. He'll certainly be able to find work with fielding independent metrics hovering around 4.00, but don't expect a team to eye him for high-leverage situations, making him an unappealing fantasy option outside of very deep single-league leagues.(Colin Zarzycki)

The Quick Opinion: Hernandez was pretty much just what we expected during his one year stint in Philly. While his strikeout rate ticked up a touch, there is little to indicate Hernandez can reclaim what he had five years ago making him an unappealing fantasy option.
