Dodgers: Kiké Herandez Signs Multi-Year Deal With the Boston Red Sox



For some Dodgers fans around Los Angeles, today is a very sad day. Kiké Herandez has become a fan favorite around Chavez Ravine over the last few years, winning over the hearts of fans with his sparkling personality and humor. 

Unfortunately for those fans, Kiké will not be returning to the Dodgers. The free-agent super-utility man has reportedly signed a new deal with the Red Sox today that is for 2 years. The news comes just hours after it was reported that the 2 sides could have a deal done by this weekend. He will be paid $14 million in the deal, per Mark Feinsand

Hernandez came to the Dodgers in a deal that sent  Dan Haren, Dee Gordon, Miguel Rojas, and cash to the Miami Marlins in 2014. He came up the following year with Los Angeles and became a big part of the roster for the remainder of his time there. Kiké spent 6 years in total with the team, providing the team with plenty of flexibility around the field as well as at the plate. 

 

While he’s had plenty of big moments while in a Dodgers uniform, his biggest came in the 2017 NLCS against the Cubs. With Los Angeles facing the opportunity of returning to the World Series for the first time since 2017, Kiké hit 3 homeruns to put them over the top. He drove in 7 runs as LA advanced to the World Series against Houston.

Kiké was rumored to be in conversations with several teams around baseball this offseason, including the Dodgers. The combination of his plus-glove and arm along with his ability to hit left-handed pitching would make him a great addition to any team. He finishes up his time in Los Angeles with a slash line of .240/.312/.425 and as a World Champion.
