Rockies signed LHP Pedro Hernandez to a minor league contract.

He'll be given an invitation to spring training. Hernandez was removed from the Twins' 40-man roster last month after posting a 6.83 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings in 2013, but it didn't take him long to find another gig. He'll likely begin next season at Triple-A.

Twins sent LHP Pedro Hernandez outright to Triple-A Rochester.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Hernandez posted an ugly 6.83 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings with the Twins this season.

Pedro Hernandez was hammered for six runs over 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Indians on Friday.

This was his third start this season where he has lasted two innings or less. Mind you, he has only made 12 starts. Hernandez will finish the year with a 6.83 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings and is unlikely to find himself getting another chance in the rotation in 2014.

Pedro Hernandez was shelled for six runs in two innings Saturday in the Twins' loss to the A's.

Hernandez didn't have a prayer against the American League West-leading Athletics. He yielded eight hits and a walk, and didn't make it past 52 pitches. The 24-year-old lefty has a 6.05 ERA and 1.73 WHIP this season.

Pedro Hernandez allowed two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old lefty was the latest to get the Astros' starmaker treatment, as he gave up just six hits while walking none in the outing. The only thing keeping him from his fourth win was a particularly bad blown save for Twins closer Glen Perkins. Hernandez pitched well enough that he likely earned himself another turn in the rotation, with his turn coming up again Monday against the Angels.

Pedro Hernandez is active and available in the Twins' bullpen for Friday's game against the Rangers.

He's also the leading candidate to start for the Twins on Tuesday in place of Samuel Deduno. Hernandez has struggled with the Twins in 37 1/3 innings this year, compiling a 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP, and shouldn't be a consideration in any fantasy format.

Twins recalled LHP Pedro Hernandez from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll presumably slide into the rotation spot vacated by Samuel Deduno (shoulder). Hernandez holds a 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 37 1/3 big league innings this season.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 12:22:00 PM

Twins optioned LHP Pedro Hernandez to Triple-A Rochester.

Hernandez allowed just two runs over five innings Sunday in a spot start for Mike Pelfrey. He'll return to a 4.05 ERA over five appearances (four starts) in the minors.
Sun, Jun 23, 2013 05:30:00 PM

Making a start in place of the injured Mike Pelfrey, Pedro Hernandez walked six but allowed just two runs over five innings in Sunday’s 5-3 win over the Indians.

Hernandez struck out a pair and surrendered just three hits, as he was able to escape relatively unscathed despite his wildness. He should get another start in Pelfrey’s place next weekend at home against the Royals but should be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Twins recalled LHP Pedro Hernandez from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll start on Sunday in Cleveland in place of the injured Mike Pelfrey (back). If Hernandez performs well, he figures to earn addition starts. The left-hander has posted a 5.85 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 17/10 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings this season.

Twins optioned LHP Pedro Hernandez to Triple-A Rochester.

Hernandez had a rough 5.85 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 17/10 K/BB ratio through his first 32 1/3 innings. The Twins will add a new piece to their starting rotation on Friday.
Mon, May 20, 2013 03:11:00 PM

Pedro Hernandez recorded a win over the White Sox by surrendering three runs in 5 1/3 innings on Monday.

Hernandez was able to put together a decent outing against a Paul Konerko-less lineup tonight, but he's just too vulnerable to right-handed hitters to succeed as a starting pitcher. He's merely holding his spot warm for someone else.
Mon, May 13, 2013 11:51:00 PM

Pedro Hernandez will remain in the Twins' rotation for now.

Hernandez has been blasted for 11 runs over 7 1/3 innings in his last two outings, but the Twins aren't ready to give up on him yet. The lefty will have to shape up in a hurry, as Liam Hendriks, Samuel Deduno and Cole De Vries are options to replace him.
Thu, May 9, 2013 07:17:00 PM

Pedro Hernandez allowed six runs over two innings but avoided a loss Wednesday as the Twins topped the Red Sox.

Hernandez was staked leads of 4-0 and 11-5 but couldn't last long enough to pick up the easy win. The left-hander allowed a grand slam to Jonny Gomes in the first inning and a solo shot to Shane Victorino in the second before exiting. He hasn't been all that bad this year, but like most Twins pitchers he pitches to contact and offers little for fantasy purposes. His next scheduled start is Monday against the White Sox.
