  • Royals' Diego Hernandez: Returns to Kansas City

    Hernandez signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Saturday.

    Despite his struggles at Double-A Northwest Arkansas in 2023, the Royals will bring back Hernandez after non-tendering him Friday. The 22-year-old outfielder will likely return to Double-A to begin 2024.

  • Diego Hernandez: Non-tendered by KC

    Hernandez became a free agent Friday after being non-tendered by the Royals.

    Hernandez was added to the Royals' 40-man roster last winter, but he struggled at the Double-A level in 2023 and might now have to move on to a new organization.

  • Royals' Diego Hernandez: Activated, sent to High-A

    The Royals reinstated Hernandez (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Monday and optioned him to High-A Quad Cities.

    Though Hernandez began season on the Royals' IL after dislocating his shoulder in February and undergoing surgery, he wouldn't have been a serious candidate to make the Opening Day roster even if he had stayed healthy and performed well in spring training. The 22-year-old outfielder was added to the 40-man roster over the winter for the sole purpose of protecting him from the Rule 5 draft, but Hernandez is realistically at least a year or two away from reaching the big leagues. He posted a serviceable if unspectacular .736 OPS in 32 games at Double-A Northwest Arkansas at the tail end of the 2022 season, and he could eventually move up to the Royals' Texas League affiliate once he gets more at-bats in at Quad Cities. Hernandez had already appeared in eight rehab games between Quad Cities and the rookie-level Arizona Complex League prior to being activated.

  • Royals' Diego Hernandez: Initiates rehab assignment

    Hernandez (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with the Royals' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate.

    The 22-year-old outfielder is ready for his first game action of the season after he had been sidelined since late February while recovering from surgery to address a dislocated right shoulder. Because he was protected from the Rule 5 Draft over the winter, Hernandez resides on the Royals' 60-day injured list, but he'll most likely be optioned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas once his 20-day rehab window comes to an end.
