It might not be the usual summer splash that traditionally comes at the Winter Meetings, but the Boston Red Sox remained active, signing outfielder Gorkys Hernandez to a minor-league deal, according to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe.
In what was a year of career-highs, the 31-year-old Hernandez appeared in 142 games for the San Francisco Giants, with a career-best 15 homers and 40 RBIs. Hernandez experienced a slight dip in his averages though, as he batting average dipped from .255 in 2017 to .234 this past season, while his on-base percentage slipped from .327 to .285.
Hernandez certainly has some range, though, and can play all three outfield positions.
The righty had stints with the Miami Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates prior to his three-season run with the Giants.
Per Speier, Hernandez will make $1 million in salary if he makes Boston’s MLB roster.
