Mariners Designate Gaby Hernandez For Assignment

Righty Gaby Hernandez was designated for assignment to make room for Ryan Garko, according to a Mariners press release.

Hernandez, 24 in May, posted a 6.0 K/9, 3.0 BB/9, and 5.23 ERA in 146.3 Triple A innings last year.  He was acquired from the Marlins for Arthur Rhodes at the '08 trade deadline.  The Marlins had acquired Hernandez from the Mets for Paul Lo Duca in December of '05.  Baseball America ranked Hernandez 21st among Mariners prospects heading into the '09 season, but he didn't crack their top 30 in the brand new 2010 Handbook.

    The Yankees or Twins should Claim him off waivers. He’d be a good short reliever for a team in contention.

      What about him says he’d be a good reliever for a team in contention? If that were the case wouldn’t the M’s find a spot for him?

  5. Gaby Hernandez was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2004 draft and was the Mets #3 prospect in 2005. He was traded with a Mets minor leaguer to the Marlins for Paul LoDuca. The Marlins (not the Reds) then sent him to the Mariners for Rhodes.

    Thats a shame. Hope some team claims him. His dad is a family friend so I hope he finds a new home.
