Q&A with Chris Hernandez
2012 Prospect Preview
The Book - 4.17.2012

Scouting Report: Left-hander was the ace of Miami's pitching staff for three seasons. Works from the first-base side of rubber and throws from a mid-3/4 arm slot. Pitches heavily to contact. Four-seam fastball tops out at 86-87 mph. Mostly spots his fastball on the outside corner to right-handed hitters. Must stay away from inside. Also utilizes a cutter that works 81-84 mph to keep hitters off-balance and out in front. Currently his go-to pitch. Tries to throw it under the hands of hitters to create weak groundballs. Also mixes in a fringe-average 80-81 mph changeup with drop and occasional fade away from right-handed batters. Curveball sits 76-79 mph and needs tightening. Tends to be slurvy and lacks deep break. Hernandez has outstanding mound presence and composure. Knows how to pitch and changes speeds effectively. Does not miss bats. Walks a fine line with stuff. Will have to be extremely fine against major-league hitters. With sharpening of his curveball, projects as a sixth or seventh inning situational reliever.
