The Boston Red Sox announced Tuesday that Marco Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket in order to make room for Mitch Moreland’s return from the injured list.
Hernandez played pretty well for the Red Sox this season. The 26-year-old is batting .339 with seven RBIs and six extra-base hits in 62 at-bats.
Before Tuesday’s game, The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham tweeted Alex Cora demoted Hernandez because they didn’t want to be “too lefthanded with Moreland returning.”
