MLB Rumors: Prominent NL Contender Showing Interest In Teoscar Hernandez

The Los Angeles Dodgers have emerged as a prominent contender in the race to acquire free-agent outfielder Teoscar Hernández.

Reports suggest that the Dodgers are actively considering Hernández as a potential addition to their roster, with a particular focus on filling a corner outfield spot.

This interest comes in the wake of the Mariners' decision not to extend a qualifying offer to Hernández, making him an even more appealing target for teams like the Dodgers.

Hernández, known for his power-hitting prowess, could provide a significant boost to the Dodgers' offensive firepower.

In his recent season with the Mariners, the 31-year-old slugger posted a .741 OPS, clubbed 26 home runs, and drove in 93 runs over 678 plate appearances.

Impressively, Hernández has consistently delivered over 25 home runs in each of the last four complete seasons, starting in 2019, making him a consistent and reliable power threat.

As the Dodgers explore their options to strengthen their outfield, the addition of Hernández could be a strategic move to enhance their lineup and maintain their competitiveness.
