The Red Sox is about to have the next Brock Holt in shape
A source told MLB.com’s Mark Vinsand that Sox and Hernández had struck a two-year deal worth $ 14 million. The club has not announced the signing.
He will help Hernandez, who won the world championship with the Dodgers in 2020 Fill in the blank Red Sox has in base two.

While the defensive variety that Hernandez possesses is a clear benefit – as Red Sox learned directly with Holt from 2014-19 – he can also strike, especially against the left. In 893 matches in his career against the Lefts, Hernandez has scored 0.820 OPS.
Hernandez scored a high 21 in the Dodgers career in 18, returning with 17 others in 19.
In 690 career matches – all but 42 of them with the Dodgers – Hernández has a slash of .240 / .313 / .425 with 71 homers and 227 RBI.
Defensively, Hernandez divided his career as follows: 11 at first base, 132 at second base, 56 at the short stopping point, 14 at third base, 60 on the left, 128 in the middle and 35 at the right.
Although the Red Sox did not make any great moves this winter, chief baseball chief Chaim Bloom has added depth to their center-player group with Hunter Renfroe and Hernández, as well as to the staff with right Matt Andriese and left Martín Pérez.
