2021 Dynasty Baseball Profile: Cristian Hernandez

on

Welcome to another edition of our player profile series. This week I take a look at Chicago Cubs prospect in the 2021 Dynasty Baseball Profile: Cristian Hernandez.

Cristian Hernandez signed with the Chicago Cubs as apart of the 2020-2021 IFA class for $3 Million from the Dominican Republic.

He is currently a shortstop, but I project him to move to third base when he gets older. This potential All-Star is 17 years old and has a height/weight combo of 6’2 and 165 pounds.

Get prepared for the upcoming Fantasy Baseball season by using the Fantasy Pros Draft Wizard.

Hit Tool

Hernandez already has a lot of raw power and good bat speed. His biggest knock is that he will sometimes sell out on his power to make contact. This kid is a potential 5-tool stud at third base.

With progression and development in the Cubs system, hopefully, he can make hard contact at a more consistent rate. Hernandez utilizes all parts of the strike zone well which should allow him to hit for a decent average.

Power

Cristian has a very high ceiling. He could be a top-5 player at his position eventually.

This kid has a body type similar to guys like Carlos Correa and Manny Machado, so he should gain more power as he grows into his frame and gets stronger.

When referring to Cristian’s high ceiling, Cubs vice president of player development Matt Dorsey stated “It’s not often that you get tools, athleticism, upside, with this other package of humility, work ethic and desire to be great. So, when that happens, it just gets you really excited about the possibilities for his future.”

Speed

Since Cristian Hernandez has above-average speed and quick feet. He is also solid on the left side of the infield.

Hernandez has a strong arm, so with his athleticism, he should stay near the hot corner.

Due to Hernandez having above-average speed, his amount of stolen bases will depend heavily on the Cubs aggressiveness on the base path.

Grades (floor/ceiling)
