RotoWire News: Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. (3/21/2017)
Profiles:  2017  (Click Year to Expand / Close)
Profile: Hernandez may have missed his opportunity to secure a big league role for the 2017 season after struggling with consistency in his debut in ’16. Just 24, the young outfielder showed potential at times but ultimately produced just-below-league-average offence and struck out a quarter of the time. Hernandez has the potential for 15-20 home runs and 20-25 steals if he can make consistent contact and get on base, but the Astros have brought in a lot of veteran outfielders in recent months: Carlos Beltran, Josh Reddick, Nori Aoki, and Yulieski Gurriel. Fellow young outfielders Preston Tucker and Jake Marisnick also face uncertain futures given the influx of proven hitters. The rookie will continue to be fantasy relevant in keeper leagues and he might eventually help the Astros acquire some much-needed pitching depth, which would in turn provide Hernandez a clearer path to playing time. For now, his value is relegated to keeper leagues, and as someone to monitor in Houston if injuries pop up. (Marc Hulet)

The Quick Opinion: In another organization, Hernandez might be someone worth getting excited about for 2017. However, the Astros spent a lot of money to bring in some big bats to try and push the club deep into the playoffs (and help compensate for the lack of pitching depth). Hernandez has 15-15 or 20-20 (SB-HR) potential in his prime - if he can learn to be more consistent. If he’s going to do it in Houston, it likely won’t be until 2018.
