Blue Jays release Ramon Hernandez from Triple-A

7 Comments

Ramon Hernandez is back on the open market after just five games at Triple-A with the Blue Jays, as Toronto released the veteran catcher.

Hernandez signed a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays after being traded from the Rockies to the Dodgers and then subsequently released. At age 37 this could be the end of the line, although considering how desperate teams often get for catching depth you’d think Hernandez could latch on somewhere else for a while.

He had a very good 2011 season, but has hit just .216 with a .628 OPS in 69 games since then while also missing time with injuries.
