Reported by our own Darrell Henry…

For the second time in his career Revolution outfielder Michael Hernandez has joined the Detroit Tigers organization.  Last season he hit .303 with 13 homers and 55 RBI for York in 105 games.  His first two professional season were spent in the Detroit organization at West Michigan (A) of the Midwest League, Lakeland (A Advanced) of the Florida State League and Erie (AA) of the Eastern League.

The Brooklyn native Hernandez was also in the Mets system in 2008 before coming to the Atlantic League, where he’s played for Newark (’09), Somerset (’10-’11) and York (’12).  It is unclear where Hernandez would play if he sticks with the Tigers out of spring training.  The three affiliates he’s played for in that minor league system are all still located where they were in ’06 and ’07.

In 2011 as a member of the Somerset Patriots, Hernandez captured Atlantic League All-Star Game MVP honors when the game was in York at Sovereign Bank Stadium.
