Hernandez (1-3) gave up the go-ahead run and took the loss Tuesday against the Marlins after entering the game tied in the 10th inning following a scoreless ninth by closer Jeanmar Gomez.

EDGE Analysis

With trade rumors surrounding current closer Jeanmar Gomez, Hernandez's didn't do himself any favors Tuesday in vying for a potential Phillies closer role should Gomez in fact get traded before the deadline. His 4.43 ERA and 1.46 WHIP are less than stellar, although teammate Hector Neris is just 1-for-3 in save opportunities this season despite a superior 2.70 ERA.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez has three straight scoreless appearances after going through an eight game stretch where he allowed 13 runs on 18 hits. His 4.50 ERA doesn't look great, but he has been a solid contributor most of the season thanks to his 13 holds and 52 strikeouts in 42 innings of work.

Hernandez picked up his second loss of the season Wednesday after allowing one run on two hits in an inning of relief.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez has allowed runs in each of his last four appearances raising his ERA to 4.41. He's allowed two home runs, struck out five, walked four and threw two wild pitches during those last four outings. He's been very good overall this season, but might deserve to be benched until he comes out of this rough patch.

Hernandez allowed four runs on five hits, including two home runs, in an inning of work Thursday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez came into the game with the Phillies already down by eight runs. Perhaps he did not have his typical focus and intensity given the situation. He's been very good overall this season, and is one of the stronger trade chips the Phillies have leading up to next month's trade deadline.

Hernandez gave up two hits, but struck out the side in a scoreless inning to pick up a hold in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The dominant middle-relief duo of Hernandez and Hector Neris recorded all six of their outs via strikeout, forming an excellent bridge to closer Jeanmar Gomez, who claimed his 15th save of the season in the ninth inning. Though Gomez seems to enjoy decent security in his role, Hernandez still makes for an appealing roster option in deep or NL-only leagues due to his prolific strikeout rate. Hernandez's 13.5 K/9 rate is the highest among any pitcher in baseball who has covered at least 18 innings.

Hernandez allowed one run on two hits and a walk but nailed down his first save of the season in a 4-3 victory against the Reds on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

With closer Jeanmar Gomez and Hector Neris unavailable due to rest, manager Pete Mackanin called upon Hernandez with a two-run lead in the ninth. The first three batters reached on a walk, single and double, which pulled the Reds within one. Hernandez induced a ground out and fly out against the next two batters, and Phillies outfielder Tyler Goeddel cut down Eugenio Suarez, who was trying to score on a sacrifice fly attempt, at home to end the game. Hernandez has one save and eight holds with one blown save this season.

Hernandez picked up his first win of the season Friday with two scoreless innings against the Indians. He struck out four and did not allow a hit or a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez got off to a shaky start to the season, but has really turned things around of late. He has a 3.97 ERA and a 20:5 K:BB ratio in 11.1 innings. Hector Neris is probably next in line for save chances if Jeanmar Gomez falters, but Hernandez is right behind him in the pecking order.

Hernandez picked up a hold with a clean inning of work Wednesday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Pete Mackanin sent Hernandez out to work the eighth inning for the second straight game Wednesday. He hit 94 mph with his fastball and eight of his 12 pitches were strikes. Hernandez could still work his way into closing duties for the Phillies and is worth stashing if you are hunting for potential saves.
