Born in Santa Cruz de La Palma, Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Hernández started playing football with local Canary Islands clubs SD Tenisca and CD Mensajero. At the end of the Spanish Civil War he joined Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa, followed by a move to Atlético Madrid which he never represented officially.
From 1950 to 1952, Hernández competed almost exclusively in La Liga (the exception being the 1950–51 season in Segunda División), representing RCD Español and Real Zaragoza and amassing totals of 143 games and 62 goals. After retiring in Aragon with SD Escoriaza he went into management, working in the top flight with Córdoba CF, Elche CF, Real Betis – he split the 1964–65 campaign between the two clubs, being in charge for only ten matches combined – and Las Palmas; he died at the age of 84 in his hometown.
Hernández gained four caps for the Spanish national team, during one year and four months. He was selected to the squad that competed at the 1950 FIFA World Cup, appearing in the tournament against the United States (3–1 win, first group stage) and Sweden (1–3 loss, second group phase).
