Dodgers: Kiké Hernandez Drawing Strong Interest From Boston Red Sox

Los Angeles is probably going to lose their super-utility man.



It’s been a wild ride for the Dodgers and Kiké Hernandez. From the time that he landed in Los Angeles, Kiké has provided plenty of entertainment to fans while also having some huge moments on the game’s biggest stage. Fans have also felt the frustration of seeing him in the cleanup spot way too many times, but we don’t have to talk about that. 

Kiké is almost certainly headed to another MLB team this offseason. The veteran super-utility man is able to hit free agency for the first time in his career this year, and the Dodgers are all but certain to be outbid. Having made nearly $6 million in his final year of arbitration, Hernandez is primed for a decent contract. 

While there have been whispers of teams interested in signing Kiké away from the Dodgers, none have been stronger than the one coming out of Boston this week. Several different reports out of Boston have suggested that the Red Sox are showing a “strong interest” in bringing Hernandez on board. 

Hernandez offers most teams in baseball an immediate upgrade just by signing him. Unfortunately for his fans in Los Angeles, the Dodgers have outgrown their need for him by establishing ridiculous depth. But if the Red Sox intend on actually competing in 2021, Kiké could potentially plug in very well as a starting second baseman.

  1. Do not let Joc Peterson go or Justing Turner they seem to be the great leaders of the team and go to persons

  2. Two of my favorite Dodgers on one of my least favorite teams in pro sports? Say it ain’t so!! Honestly, I just wish Kike a chance to play everyday. He was so much fun to watch as a Dodger.

  3. Rather than being sad that Kike will surely leave, we need to be happy for his success while with the Dodgers and for his future where he will make a lot more money and get more regular playing time. He’s earned it.

  4. Like is future gold glove All Star second baseman or center fielder .He deserves to play everyday same With JOCTOBER.Good luck to both.
