Rafael Tobías Hernández Alvarado (born August 24, 1953) is a Venezuelan former catcher in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Toronto Blue Jays in its 1984 season. Listed at 6' 1", 160 lb., Hernández batted and threw right handed. He was born in Calabozo, Guárico.[1]

Hernández was regarded as a good-fielding, light-hitting catcher in the Jays organization, but after a long history of injuries he was able to reach the majors just at 31. In his brief stint at Toronto, he went 1-for-2 and scored a run in three games.[1]

Additionally, he posted a .223 average with 11 home runs and 122 RBI in parts of seven minor league seasons between 1979 and 1985.[2]

In between, Hernández played winter ball with the Cardenales de Lara club of the Venezuelan League in a span of 14 seasons from 1978 through 1991.[3]
