The Los Angeles Dodgers began their Cactus League schedule with a loss to the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, but were able to get came back winning, 6-4, with an early 1-0 lead. Although it’s only a spring training win, a win is a win. Even with all that excitement in the stands and on the field, there’s still work that needs to be done behind the scenes.

With Thursday being his first big league start in spring training ever, Kiké Hernandez is slightly disappointed over his personal play. “Things are not going quite the way I want them to go offensively,” he said. “But that’s what practice is for and just keep working and getting better and figure out what I’m doing wrong.”

Hernandez admitted he enjoyed being out on the field, particularly with it being his first big league start, but he felt that things were out of place. “I felt like I was doing something wrong at the plate and I looked at the video, something felt off and looked at the video and figured it out,” he said. “After I got done playing, went to the cage and worked on it and tomorrow’s a different day.”

A career .248/.321/.421 hitter in 42 Major-League games (121 at-bats), Hernandez is 0-for-5 with two strikeouts this spring. He participated in Spring Training with the Houston Astros in 2011, 2013 and 2014, but only had four at-bats and is 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Prior to reporting to camp, Hernandez spent time playing winter ball and has drawn rave reviews from scouts.
