by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/7/2015) Phillies infielder Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Padres. Hernandez had started 17 of the last 18 games for the Phillies, but with Chase Utley back in the lineup, Hernandez will get a rest on Friday.

The Phillies have already indicated Hernandez will get the majority of the reps at shortstop following Utley's return from the disabled list. But Freddy Galvis is listed as the starting shortstop on Friday.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Hernandez has been held hitless in 12 at-bats over his last three games, so he'll get a chance to clear his head with a rest on Saturday. Andres Blanco will slide in and cover second base against the Giants.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Phillies' Cesar Hernandez could remain starting second baseman


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/7/2015) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Tuesday that Cesar Hernandez will likely keep the starting second baseman job once Chase Utley returns from the disabled list.

Hernandez has been one of the Phillies' hottest hitters over the last two weeks or so, and is earning high praise from the coaches and front office. Amaro wentas far as to call Hernandez the "team's best second baseman", according to CSN Philadelphia.

Utley, meanwhile, was batting .179 before landing on the DL with an ankle injury. The veteran has struggled all season, and may have seen his starting role vanish.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Phils' Mackanin on Hernandez: 'He's learning, gaining confidence'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) Phillies shortstop Cesar Hernandez was a standout player during Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

In the first game, he went 2 for 4 with two stolen bases before going 4 for 4 with one stolen base in the second game. All six of his hits were singles.

Hernandez has been on a nice run offensively, batting .365 in his last 14 games (12 starts). His batting average has increased from .217 to .271 in that span.

Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said Hernandez's recent hot streak has to due with increased playing time, as he has emerged as the starting second baseman with Chase Utley on the disabled list.

"One of our concerns in spring training was it would behoove him to play and we'd like to see him play a lot but as a part-time player, I don't think at this stage of his career he's really ready to be a part-time player," Mackanin said, per MLB.com. "But he certainly looks like he's got a chance to be an everyday player. He's learning and gaining confidence."


Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez extends hot streak with four hits


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

He also drove in a run and scored twice in the 11-6 victory over the Yankees. Now with 15 RBI on the season, Hernandez has already established a new career-high. 

Hernandez will likely see more playing time, now that second baseman Chase Utley has landed on the disabled list with an ankle injury. On the season, Hernandez is batting .248, while his career average sits at a .258 clip.

I feel like I'm putting balls in play with hard contact."


Phillies' Cesar Hernandez has good chance to make team


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Phillies infielder Cesar Hernandez has a good shot at making the team's opening-day roster, MLB.com reports.

Hernandez is out of options and the team wants to keep him in the organization. He also has the ability to play second base, which is needed with Chase Utley nursing a sprained right ankle, and can play some at third base and shortstop.

"The way that he's playing, he's making a good case to be part of the plan and part of the puzzle," manager Ryne Sandberg said.

Hernandez is just 2 for 16 this spring but has drawn two walks and stolen one base.

"No pressure," Hernandez said. "I'm just playing my type of baseball, which is bunting, moving runners over, playing good defense and getting a clutch hit when I can."
