  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Optioned to minors

    Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett by Atlanta on Monday.

    Hernandez made four appearances with the big club last season and also had one NLDS outing, but he's one of the team's first cuts this spring. The 27-year-old reliever could still wind up spending a good amount of time in the Atlanta bullpen this season.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Makes roster for NLDS

    Hernandez (forearm) will be part of Atlanta's roster for the NLDS against the Phillies, Mark Bowman of reports.

    Hernandez allowed three earned runs over just 3.2 major-league innings during the regular season and finished out the year on the 60-day injured list due to right forearm inflammation. Bowman notes, however, that the 27-year-old reliever "made a great impression" during Atlanta's pair of intrasquad games this week at Truist Park to secure a bullpen spot for the best-of-five National League Division Series versus Philadelphia. Michael Tonkin also made the cut, while Jesse Chavez and Kyle Wright did not.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Beginning rehab assignment

    Hernandez (forearm) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Hernandez is currently on the 60-day injured list with right forearm inflammation and isn't eligible to be activated until the final weekend of the 2023 regular season. He had allowed three earned runs through 3.2 innings of relief with Atlanta prior to the IL stint and could simply finish out the year in the minors.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Hernandez (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Hernandez apparently has not made much progress since landing on the 15-day injured list in early August, and Atlanta moved him to the longer of the two injured lists to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for the returning Kyle Wright.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Shelved with forearm inflammation

    Atlanta placed Hernandez on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right forearm inflammation.

    Hernandez's move to the IL clears a spot on the 26-man active roster for left-hander Brad Hand, whom Atlanta acquired from Colorado on Tuesday. After receiving his first call-up to the big leagues July 23, Hernandez gave up three earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six over 3.2 innings across his four relief appearances for Atlanta before hitting the shelf.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Nabs win in big-league debut

    Hernandez (1-0) picked up the win during Sunday's victory over the Brewers, allowing one hit and striking out three in a scoreless inning of relief.

    Making his big-league debut in the seventh inning, Hernandez flashed overpowering stuff with a fastball that topped out at 97.3 mph and a nasty slider that he used to carve up the bottom of Milwaukee's batting order. The right-hander hadn't allowed a run since May 3 for Triple-A Gwinnett prior to his promotion, posting a 29:5 K:BB in 17.2 innings during that shutout streak, and while he's no threat to take the closer job away from Raisel Iglesias, Hernandez could quickly work his way into a high-leverage role for Atlanta.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Joining big-league club

    Atlanta selected Hernandez's contract from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old missed the entire 2022 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he returned to the mound this season and pitched well between Double-A Mississippi and Gwinnett with 26 strikeouts and just four hits allowed across 16.2 scoreless innings. Hernandez's first appearance will mark his MLB debut, and he's likely to fill a low-leverage role during his first taste of the big leagues.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Activated at Double-A

    Triple-A Gwinnett activated Hernandez (elbow) from its 7-day injured list May 9 and assigned him to Double-A Mississippi.

    Hernandez opened the season on the shelf while he finished up his recovery from February 2022 Tommy John surgery, but he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rome in mid-April. Though Hernandez allowed six runs (five earned) while striking out six and walking five over 5.1 innings across his six relief appearances with Rome, Atlanta saw enough from him to conclude he was ready to join the Mississippi bullpen. He turned in a scoreless inning in his first appearance for Mississippi last Wednesday.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: In midst of rehab assignment

    Hernandez (elbow) began a rehab assignment with High-A Rome on April 15 and has posted a 10.38 ERA, 2.31 WHIP and 3:5 K:BB in 4.1 innings over five appearances.

    Hernandez remains on Triple-A Gwinnett's 7-day injured list, but now that he's rehabbing at a lower-level affiliate, the 26-year-old looks to be nearing the finish line in his recovery from his February 2022 Tommy John surgery. Given his poor results thus far, Hernandez may make a few more appearances for Rome before rejoining the Triple-A club.

  • Braves' Daysbel Hernandez: Recovering from Tommy John surgery

    Hernandez had Tommy John surgery in early February and will be out until the 2023 season, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.

    One of Atlanta's better relief pitching prospects, Hernandez reached Triple-A last season, so he could have made his big-league debut this year if he were healthy. Given the timing of the surgery, he may be limited for most or all of spring training in 2023.
