Luis Hernandez signs minor league deal with Kansas City Royals


Recommended Posts

Didn't see this one coming. :rofl:

The Orioles won't have the same Opening Day shortstop in 2009.

Not that we were expecting it to happen, but now it's official.

Luis Hernandez, a minor league free agent, has signed with the Kansas City Royals.

Baseball America refers to Hernandez as a "slick fielder," but it didn't show this year. Not in spring training and not in Baltimore. Otherwise, he might have stuck around.

Another fan favorite, reliever Greg Aquino, has signed with the Cleveland Indians.

Luis was a funny case. He seemed to be a special fielding SS when we saw him for two months in 2007. He felt he needed to bulk up and become a stronger hitter in 2008. I guess the weight and the pressure of starting became too much and he cratered. Follow that by hitting less than .200 at AAA and he seems to be done.
