The Cleveland Baseball Club has agreed to a deal with the veteran second baseman.
After an offseason that has been quiet on the free agency front, the Cleveland Baseball Club is bringing a familiar face back into the fold. According to Jon Heyman, Cleveland has agreed to a deal with Cesar Hernandez.
Cleveland agreed to a deal with Cesar Hernandez last season that proved to be a great one. Hernandez started 58 of 60 games for Cleveland and was a very productive bat in the lineup, slashing .283/.355/.408/.763 and led the American League with 20 doubles.
By adding Cesar Hernandez back into the lineup it places less pressure on younger player to perform, most notably the recently acquired Andres Gimenez. Cleveland may be able to juggle the combination of Hernandez, Gimenez, and Amed Rosario at some point this season in order to manufacture an offense.
