The Crystal Ball: Ramon Hernandez
My projection for Ramon Hernandez consists of one thing only:
AB H 2B 3B HR BA OBP SLG OPS
Home 256 82 12 1 17 .320 .385 .574 .959
Away 245 56 17 1 6 .229 .299 .380 .679
He really likes hitting at Camden Yards, huh?
I don’t expect him to hit .320 at home again but I also don’t expect him to hit .229 on the road either. So there’s even a possibility that he could improve on last year’s numbers, as odd as that may seem.
Hernandez led AL backstops in throwing out opposing baserunners. They should be less likely to test him this year.
Hernandez is a workhorse and a nice defensive backstop. As long as he is playing half his games at Camden Yards, I expect even better things from him this year.
