Implodes for blown save
PTexas Rangers
September 1, 2022
Hernandez (1-1) blew the save and took the loss against the Red Sox on Thursday, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks while recording only one out (on a strikeout).
ANALYSIS
The Rangers carried a three-run lead into the ninth inning, and they turned to Hernandez to slam the door. The righty reliever clearly didn't have his best stuff, as he threw only 14 of 26 pitches for strikes and walked the first two batters he faced. Boston followed with a pair of hits to plate two runs, and after Hernandez struck out J.D. Martinez and issued an intentional walk to Christian Arroyo, two more Red Sox hits plated the tying and winning runs. Hernandez entered the contest with a 1.69 ERA, but that number ballooned to 3.86 following his first loss and first blown save of the campaign.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hernandez was electric coming out of the Rangers' bullpen in 2020, posting a solid 2.90 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 31 punchouts over 31 innings. He also finished with a 5-1 record along with five holds. Hernandez's nasty sinker makes it extremely difficult for hitters to lift the ball out of the ballpark, and this was evident by just two home runs surrendered last season. The 24-year-old's command is also something to note, finishing the year with a 3.9 K/BB. The youngster easily fits into the class of upcoming elite relievers, and he should be in a position to receive plenty of high-leverage opportunities in 2021, even with Jose Leclerc returning from a shoulder injury and factoring into the mix near the back end of the bullpen.
