Hernandez gave up three runs and four walks in 5.2 innings pitched against the Rockies on Friday in a no-decision.

Hernandez will replace Josh Beckett (hip) in the rotation Friday against the Brewers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hernandez won't have to wait long for his first start with his new team, as Josh Beckett underwent an MRI on Thursday, and is likely headed for the disabled list. Should Beckett officially land on the DL, Hernandez could be in line to make a few more starts for the Dodgers during the remainder of the season. He owned a 3.87 ERA over 20 starts with the Phillies, and his fantasy value stands to be much improved while playing for a better club.
