ESPN Sad News Report: Pittsburgh Pirates Hits With Major Set Backs As Another Top Confirm He Wants To Leave

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded left-handed pitcher Jose Hernandez to the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations. This move comes two days after Hernandez was designated for assignment by the Pirates.

Hernandez, 26, was initially picked by the Pirates from the Dodgers in the 2022 Rule 5 Draft. Last season, he posted a 1-3 record with a 4.97 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP, averaging 11 strikeouts and 3.9 walks per nine innings over 50 2/3 innings in 50 appearances.


Although Hernandez did not make the Pirates’ Opening Day roster, he was called up when Roansy Contreras went on paternity leave. He secured his first career major league save with a scoreless 12th inning in a 1-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on March 28 in the season opener.

This season, Hernandez split his time between Triple-A Indianapolis and the Pirates. He recorded a 1-1 record with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.69 WHIP in 5 1/3 innings over seven appearances. Now, Hernandez returns to the Dodgers organization, where he started his professional career.
