by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The Diamondbacks have moved four players off the 60-day disabled list, according to the Arizona Republic

Bronson Arroyo, Patrick Corbin, David Hernandez and Matt Reynolds were activated Thursday. Players are not allowed to be on the 60-day disabled list during the offseason. They can be put back on the 60-day DL once the season begins again.

Hernandez met with Dr. James Andrews Monday, who determined he should have the procedure. Hernandez will likely miss all of 2014 in order to recover. He posted a 4.48 ERA in 62 1/3 innings last year.


David Hernandez hits 15-day disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher David Hernandez hit the 15-day disabled list Sunday.

The move is backdated to March 27, but Hernandez isn't expected to return any time soon. He'll have a second opinion on his elbow Monday, but the initial diagnosis was a torn UCL. Hernandez posted a 4.48 ERA in 62 1/3 innings last year.


David Hernandez to get second opinion Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher David Hernandez will get a second opinion with Dr. James Andrews Monday after being diagnosed with a torn UCL, FOXSportsArizona.com reports.

Hernandez will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday unless he gets a positive result in his doctor's visit the previous day. The Diamondbacks are almost certain to lose a pitcher who went 5-6 with a 4.48 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 66:24 K:BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings last season.


Report: David Hernandez destined for Tommy John surgery


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) A torn UCL sustained by Diamondbacks relief pitcher David Hernandez will probably require season-ending Tommy John surgery, per FoxSports.com, which is further reporting that a second MRI that reveals the same problem will clinch the need for the procedure.

The loss of Hernandez, whose fastball was peaking at 95 mph recently, could severely impact the Arizona bullpen. He was slated to serve as the setup man for new closer Addison Reed. That job is now likely to be given to J.J. Putz.

Hernandez regressed in 2013 after two fine seasons as a short reliever and part-time closer the previous two years, during which he struck out 175 in 130 2/3 innings and posted a 2.94 ERA.

David Hernandez comes to camp in better shape


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher David Hernandez has reported to camp in better shape, according to the azcentral. 

Hernandez had a rough year in 2013. He posted a 4.48 ERA in 62 1/3 innings, and wasn't happy with his performance. "That was probably the worst season of my life," Hernandez said. 

He explained that part of his struggles were due to being out of shape. "I just felt so slow and out of shape," he said. "I think that had something to do with it." Hernandez weighed 260 at his heaviest last year. He reported to camp weighing 238 pounds. 

Kirk Gibson thinks Hernandez can get things together this time around. "You look at his body; he’s in better shape this year," Gibson said. "He’s a lot leaner. His mind is right. He’s just in a better spot mentally (and) physically."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The Diamondbacks recalled relievers David Hernandez and Tony Sipp from Triple-A Reno Sunday. Hernandez is 4-6 with a 5.59 ERA in 48 relief appearances, while Sipp is 3-1 with a 3.86 ER in 48 relief appearances fort Arizona.

David Hernandez notches save No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2013) Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez notched his second save of the season Friday night against the Brewers.

David Hernandez closes out Phillies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2013) With Heath Bell having pitched in the last three games, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson rolled with David Hernandez for the final three outs of Friday's win against the Phillies.

Hernandez, who entered the game in the ninth with a one-run lead, allowed the first two batters on base. He worked his way out of the jam and needed just 14 pitches to secure a 3-2 win and his first save of the season.

Hernandez has a 3.57 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP through his first 17 2/3 innings.

Kirk Gibson discusses back of bullpen


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2013) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson told MLB.com on Wednesday that Heath Bell will receive the first shot at closing games with J.J. Putz on the disabled list. David Hernandez will remain in his current role as setup man.

"I just think Heath's got more experience at closer right now, and if we move Heath and David right now we're really moving the whole bullpen," Gibson said. "It just seems like it's less disruptive."

Don't give up on David Hernandez yet


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2013) Despite blowing away hitters over the past few seasons with overpowering stuff, David Hernandez is still waiting for his chance. The Diamondbacks appear keen on prioritizing experience at the back end of the bullpen, and all signs appear to indicate that former All-Star Heath Bell, and not Hernandez, will get the call for save opportunities with J.J. Putz on the disabled list.

For Fantasy owners who have been making Hernandez a target of speculative pickups, this is bad news, but it is by no means a death knell for his long-term value. I definitely would not run out to grab Hernandez right now, but Bell is unlikely to get much of a leash, given his dreadful season with the Marlins a year ago.

Hernandez clearly has the most upside out of the Diamondbacks' relief options if he can get some save chances, so Fantasy owners should continue to keep a close eye on the situation. If Bell looks shaky in the ninth inning, I would definitely take a look at Hernandez. He has averaged 11.2 strikeouts per nine innings in his last three seasons, with a 3.05 ERA.  


Diamondbacks to use two-closer committee?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2013) Diamondbacks closer J.J. Putz is headed for further evaluation Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game with elbow stiffness. If Putz has to miss extended time, then the Diamondbacks would need to replace his absence in the closer's role.

Heath Bell, who recorded his second save after replacing Putz Tuesday, believes the Diamondbacks would use a two-closer committee, involving David Hernandez and himself, if Putz needs a stint on the disabled list.

"They brought me in to help out if J.J. needed a day off or if David needed a day off," Bell said. "I mean, you never want to see anybody hurt. But unfortunately, if he has to take some time on the DL, I think myself and David can fill in real nicely."


David Hernandez worth watching


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2013) Both Matt Reynolds and David Hernandez ended Tuesday night as two of the five most-viewed players in CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues. That is because Diamondbacks' closer J.J. Putz's struggles to close out games continued yet again, as he blew his major-league leading fourth save of the season.

So far, it has been Reynolds -- not Hernandez -- who has gotten the excess save opportunities, however Hernandez is widely considered the closer of the future. He has huge potential as a shutdown closer, with 189 strikeouts in 150 1/3 innings since joining the Diamondbacks in 2011.

Hernandez has the greater upside as a Fantasy option, but whichever pitcher ends up getting consistent save opportunities will be the one to snag. The Diamondbacks have a lot of money tied up in Putz, but his struggles continue to make it hard for them to trust. Fantasy owners looking for saves on the wire will definitely want to keep an eye on the situation in Arizona. 


David Hernandez blows save, earns win


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2013) Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez blew his second save on Wednesday afternoon against the Giants but also collected his first win. He entered in the ninth inning with a one-run lead and surrendered a solo homer to Brandon Crawford.

His teammates were able to score a run in the 10th and the right-hander earned the victory in a 3-2 win.

Hernandez has a 3.38 ERA through 11 appearances.

David Hernandez takes first loss


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2013) After making it through his first six appearances scoreless, Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez finally slipped up on Wednesday night against the Yankees.

He entered in the eighth inning with the score tied at 3-3 and surrendered a two-out, solo homer to Travis Hafner.

Hernandez took his first loss and saw his ERA rise to 1.29 in a 4-3 defeat.

David Hernandez unstoppable at home


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) Diamondbacks setup man David Hernandez threw his second straight scoreless appearance of the season Wednesday against the Cardinals. It was also the 18th time in his last 19 appearances at Chase Field the right-handed reliever held an opponent scoreless, according to The Arizona Republic

Since 2011, Hernandez has shutout opponents in 67 of 77 home games. He has 105 strikeouts in that span, which is second among relievers.

"(It’s) just being able to sleep at home and being in your own bed, waking up and being able to stick with the routine that you’re comfortable with," Hernandez said. "On the road, you get in at different hours, you get back from the stadium at different times … at home it’s just a comfort. And it always helps to have the fans cheering for you."


Hernandez closes out L.A.
