    There's nothing wrong with the defense. It's probably average or a bit below.

    Baseball America...
    Hernandez is a versatile outfielder who has the speed and range to play above-average defense center field and the arm to be a plus defender in right.
    By standing still with a solid but unspectacular first half at Triple-A Fresno, Hernandez has been passed by Fisher on the Astros’ outfield depth chart. He’s been fine this year and is a better defender than Fisher, but when left field potentially opens up next spring, Fisher’s superior offensive production gives him the edge.
    Fansided...
    The outfielder played decently, showing range in center field and hit for some pop, hitting four home runs. At times he looked like a rookie. And at other times he showed ability. Hernandez proved he is fully capable of being slotted into the already athletic outfield group the Astros have without a huge drop-off.
    KATOH...
    Hernandez has technically had stints in Houston both this season and last, but has spent most of 2017 with the Astros’ Triple-A affiliate. He only played one game with the Astros this season, coming in as a defensive replacement for Carlos Beltran. In Triple-A, he flashed his typical power-speed combination, racking up 12 homers and 12 steals in 79 games (though he was caught stealing seven times). In addition to his power and speed, Hernandez also draws a healthy amount of walks and has played solid right-field defense this year. He struck out in an acceptable 21% of plate appearances this year, which is a huge improvement from where he was a few years ago.
    I could go on, but everyone has him as an above average fielder? His K rate is the big hole in his game.

    seems to have a plus arm and plus speed. I haven't seen a lot of scouting reports that suggest below average defensive skills.

    The player at the bottom is obviously Teoscar Hernandez. The player above him for those who haven't figured it it is Aaron Judge. Point is projecting young players is really hard. You never know when things click in for the guys with really good athletic makeup. It can be never or at any moment. When Judge hit the majors for his first full season his walk rate skyrocket as did his power numbers and his K rate was still terrible, but it didn't really matter.

    I'm not saying the same will happen for Teoscar, I'm just saying it's too early to have too strong of an opinion on the guy. The guy has great bat speed, good speed and a strong arm. I'm playing him until he stops hitting. He might just be better than some of you think.

    Why do you say he doesn't walk? His walk rate in 221 PA in the majors is close to league average.

    I don't know exactly what Hernandez is just yet, but it's clear to me that he's the one to go back to the minors. Granderson and Pearce are playing well and we need to see more of Morales before deciding to eat over 20 million. We're going to need him again this season, so we should preserve our depth.

    You're probably right but it's going to be really hard to take his bat out of the lineup right now.

    Teoscar is probably about an Alex Rios type... Good, maybe a few years where he's all-star quality, but not a guy who is a "superstar". I'll take that in exchange for 2 months of Francisco Liriano.

    he's athletic, hes fast, he has the ability to play a premium position, and he hits for power at the very least, people have a right to be excited especially since hes playing instead of that fat fuck morales trotting out their twice a week and getting paid big money.
