Carlo Amado "Chuck" Hernandez (born November 11, 1960) is an American professional baseball coach for the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball.

Prior to his coaching career, he played in the New York Yankees minor league system from 1979 to 1983. He also played part of the 1983 season in the Chicago White Sox system. A broken arm that year ended his playing career.[citation needed]

Hernandez has served as pitching coach for the California Angels (1993–96), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (2004–05), and Detroit Tigers (2006–08). In 2009, he served as the bullpen coach for the Cleveland Indians, but was fired along with Manager Eric Wedge and the rest of the staff at the season's end. Hernandez was then pitching coach for the GCL Phillies and then the Miami Marlins. In November 2015 he was hired as Minor League pitching coordinator for the Atlanta Braves.[1] On October 11, 2016, Hernandez was named the pitching coach for the Atlanta Braves.[2]
