Kike Hernandez, OF
Hernandez has had a major fall from grace sine his epic run during the 2021 postseason. In the season and a half since, he’s batted just .222/.286/.330 with 12 homers and 76 RBIs in 179 games.
With the current logjam in the outfield and Trevor Story hopefully returning to shortstop soon, the Red Sox aren’t going to have much room for Hernandez down the stretch. The time has come to move on, even if it means eating the remainder of his $10 million salary for this year.
Another team might be willing to take on Hernandez if Boston covers most of the salary. At this point, the Red Sox would probably take whatever they can get for Hernandez, even if it’s just a lottery-ticket prospect. Otherwise, DFA’ing him might be their only option.
