Hernandez agreed to a deal with the Braves on Sunday as a non-roster invitee.

EDGE Analysis

After signing a minor league deal with the Giants in February, he was recently informed that he wouldn't make their 25-man roster and thus requested his release. He will report to Braves camp Monday with the hopes of making their Opening Day roster.

Hernandez was released by the Giants on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez had requested the move after being informed he would not make the Opening Day roster. The 31-year-old was attempting to earn a bullpen spot after appearing in 70 games for Philadelphia last season, but posted a 4.76 ERA over six Cactus League games this spring. He'll look to latch on to a roster elsewhere.

Hernandez and the Giants agreed to terms on a minor league contract Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

After spending 2015 with Arizona and 2016 with Philadelphia, Hernandez will now join his third club in as many seasons. The right-hander will attempt to make the Giants' roster out of spring training, but it's possible that he could begin the year at the Triple-A level. Last season, Hernandez posted a 3.84 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 70 relief appearances (72.2 innings).

Hernandez became a free agent Thursday, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hernandez was signed to a one-year deal by the Phillies last offseason. He was 3-4 with a 3.84 ERA and an 80:32 K:BB in 72.2 innings. He will likely be looking for a multi-year contract this winter.

Hernandez picked up his 14th hold of the season in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Rockies. He allowed one run on three hits over 1.2 innings with two strikeouts and a walk.

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.

Hernandez allowed one hit in a scoreless inning of relief in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Rockies.

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.
