Hernandez will sit for the second straight game. He's hitting .146/.212/.229 over his last 14 games. Max Muncy will remain the starter at second base.
Hernandez isn't starting Friday's game against the Rockies, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.
Hernandez went 1-for-3 with two runs scored in Thursday's series finale with San Francisco, but he'll head to the bench Friday evening. Max Muncy shifts over to the keystone, allowing for Matt Beaty to draw the start at first base.
Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a pair of stolen bases and scored twice in Thursday's victory over San Francisco.
Speed is not usually Hernandez's forte -- he had stolen only eight bases in 581 career games coming into Thursday -- but he picked the pocket of Madison Bumgarner twice in the first inning after being hit by a pitch to lead off the game and proceeded to score the game's first run on a Max Muncy single. He later came around to score the Dodgers' sixth run after a single in the fourth inning -- only his 10th hit in 59 at-bats in June. For the season, Hernandez is slashing a meager .210/.282/.382, though he has contributed in the power department with 11 home runs and 37 RBI.
Hernandez belted a grand slam and walked in a victory over the Giants on Tuesday.
Hernandez came on as a pinch hitter for Joc Pederson in the sixth inning and was walked intentionally, then made the most of his only official at-bat by crushing a 416-foot grand slam to left field to break the game open in the seventh. Both outcomes were positive signs for Hernandez, who had struggled coming into the game by taking only one walk and belting only one home run while hitting a meager .160 in June. Overall, he is slashing .213/.281/.391 with 11 home runs and 37 runs batted in this season.
Hernandez is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants.
Hernandez has fallen off after a hot start and now sits with just a .210/.276/.376 line for the season. Max Muncy slides over to second base Tuesday, with Matt Beaty starting at first.
