Seattle Mariners Sign Former Gold Glover

After being released by the Detroit Tigers earlier this week, Cesar Hernandez has now been signed by the Seattle Mariners to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old had joined the Tigers as a non-roster invitee during the spring, but he was unable to secure a spot on their opening roster.

Now, he will need to demonstrate his abilities in Triple-A before potentially earning a promotion to the big leagues with the Mariners.

Despite his struggles in the 2022 season where he had a lackluster .629 OPS across 617 plate appearances with the Washington Nationals, he is a solid veteran player who has shown promise in the past.

In fact, he won a Gold Glove award with the Cleveland Guardians in the 2020 season.

Throughout his career, Hernandez has amassed a .267/.341/.375 triple-slash line, with 71 home runs, 369 RBIs, 91 stolen bases, and 590 runs scored across 1,186 games played.

It will be interesting to see how he performs in the minor leagues and whether he will be able to make a comeback to the majors with the Mariners. Photo Credit:  Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports
