San Diego Padres
Hernández signed with the San Diego Padres as an international free agent in 2009, after he graduated from the Padres baseball academy in the Dominican Republic. After the 2011 season, the Padres added Hernández to their 40 man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Later in the 2011-12 offseason, the Padres traded Hernández and Simón Castro to the White Sox for Carlos Quentin.
Chicago White Sox
On July 18, 2012, Hernández made his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox. Hernández started the game against Felix Doubront. He was tagged for a three-run home run by Cody Ross in the bottom of the third inning and the bottom of the 4th inning, and was relieved by Hector Santiago in the bottom of the 5th inning, picking up the loss.
