Well, Boston picked up a Hernandez from the Mariners, but obviously it wasn't the one Sox fans had hoped. RHP Gaby Hernandez was claimed off of waivers by Boston. Hernandez was designated for assignment on Feb. 1 when the Mariners signed Ryan Garko.
Hernandez went 10-9 with a 5.23 ERA (85 ER, 146.1 IP) in 26 starts for Triple-A Tacoma last season. The M's acquired him in 2008, when then interim GM Lee Pelekoudas traded Arthur Rhodes to Florida.
Seattle will keep RHP Yusmeiro Petit, who was designated for assignment on Feb. 6 to make room for Erik Bedard on the 40-man roster. He was outrighted to Triple A Tacoma, but will still get an invite to big league spring training.
The Mariners claimed him off waivers on Nov.4, 2009.
Never miss a local story.
Petit, 25, appeared in 23 games for the Diamondbacks last season, going 3-10 with a 5.82 ERA. In 17 starts, he went 3-9, 5.72 (53 ER, 83.1 IP) and struck out 71 batters.
Over his Major League career with the Marlins (2006) and Diamondbacks (2007-09), Petit is 10-20 with a 5.57 ERA in 71 appearances (36 games started). In eight seasons in the minor leagues, he compiled a 43-34 record with a 3.41 ERA in 126 appearances (125 games started).
