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.
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.
