Michael Hernandez back with Revolution
Outfielder Michael Hernadnez, who spent all of last season with the Revolution and played in 104 games, has been signed and added to the active roster. Following a .303/11 HR/55 RBI effort last year in York, Hernandez was signed by the Detroit Tigers in the off-season. It was his second tour of duty with that organization, after playing at three levels during 2006 and 2007. Hernandez was released mid-July out of Double-A Erie.
Coincidentally, he joined the Revolution on July 22 for the beginning of their four-game series at Somerset, where he spent the entire 2010 and 2011 seasons. In 2011, Hernandez homered in the Atlantic League All-Star Game at Sovereign Bank Stadium as a member of the Patriots and was voted the game’s MVP, before signing with the Revolution the following off-season.
Left-handed reliever Edward Paredes was placed on the inactive list to make room for Hernandez. Paredes sustained a leg injury during his appearance at Southern Maryland on July 22.
