Diory Hernandez Lands With Chicago Cubs After Astros Release

The transactions continue to rack up in the story of Diory Hernandez, who was recently released by the Houston Astros after a failed tryout with the club. Hernandez originally came over as a free agent from the Atlanta Braves organization, but apparently he couldn't make it work. Now Jed Hoyer apparently wants to see what he can get from the Dominican Republic native.

Hernandez originally signed as a Dominican prospect with the Braves a decade ago and he languished in the Braves system for the vast majority of that time. Now 28, Hernandez doesn't appear to have much of a ceiling at all at the Major League level, but the Cubs clearly see something here that others might not. After all, a career .455 OPS at the ML level over parts of three seasons is a clear indicator of being completely overmatched.
