Blue Jays signed RHP Fernandez Hernandez to a minor league contract.
Hernandez split last season between the Yankees' Double- and Triple-A affiliates and the independent Atlantic League. The 27-year-old has averaged 8.8 K/9 in the minor leagues, but hasn't appeared in the majors since 2008 as a member of the Athletics. He'll likely serve as minor league fodder for Toronto.

Athletics signed RHP Fernando Hernandez to a minor league contract.

They also inked LHPs Cedrick Bowers and Matt Wright, RHP Marcus McBeth and 1B Matt Whitney to minor league pacts. All receive invites to spring training. Hernandez, 25, was a former Rule 5 pick of the Athletics prior to the 2008 season, but was returned to the White Sox after just three appearances. He posted a 1.68 ERA and 20 saves in 57 appearances between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte last season.

Athletics designated RHP Fernando Hernandez for assignment.

The A's quickly decided it wouldn't be worth carrying the 23-year-old Rule-5 pick all season long after he started off by giving up six runs and five walks in three innings. They could attempt to trade with the White Sox for his rights.

Athletics selected RHP Fernando Hernandez with the ninth pick in the Rule 5 draft.

The A's also came away with the White Sox pitcher last year and carried Jay Marshall all season before losing him on waivers to Boston. Hernandez had a 3.06 ERA and an 84/23 K/BB ratio in 85 1/3 IP for Double-A Birmingham. He then went and pitched 12 2/3 scoreless innings in the AFL. The White Sox weren't thrilled about his arm strength, but he could be valuable in middle relief right away.
