Red Sox reportedly agree to terms with second baseman Enrique Hernandez


The Red Sox have got their second baseman.

As was first reported by, the Sox and Enrique Hernandez have come to terms on a multi-year contract.

The energetic Hernandez was a valued part of the Dodgers' 2020 world championship team, serving as one of Los Angeles' two second basemen throughout their postseason run.

Hernandez' most notable contributions in the playoffs came in the National League Championship Series when the 29-year-old, hitting a game-tying solo homer in the Dodgers' Game 7 win. Three years earlier, the infielder managed three home runs in one NLCS game, including a grand slam.

A native of Puerto Rico, Hernandez is familiar with Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who chose him to play second base for Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic while serving as the team's general manager.

During the 2020 regular season Hernandez played the majority of his games (30) at second base, while also manning the outfield in 17 contests. He has been an everyday player for the Dodgers the last three seasons, with 2018 serving as his best year (.806 OPS, 20 home runs).

A right-handed hitter, Hernandez has hit 41 points higher against lefty pitching (.263) than right-handers.

Other second base options currently on the Red Sox' roster include Christian Arroyo, Michael Chavis and Jonathan Arauz.
