Cesar Hernandez homered in back-to-back games against the Cubs on August 6th & 7th.
Since then, he's hit .197/.262/.235.
He has a .247 xwOBA for August and a .255 xwOBA for September. He was well over .300 before the trade.
Pretty easy decision to bench him in October.

2. Luis Robert - CF
3. Yoan Moncada - 3B

Cesar Hernandez has been a really, really bad deadline acquisition for the #WhiteSox.
At this point, I really hope they at least consider giving Leury Garcia a look at 2nd base during the playoffs. This is getting ridiculous.
Folks, if you’re that worried about defense, I promise you Leury Garcia is more than capable of whatever Cesar Hernandez did this inning.

I uh, take back everything I said about César Hernández’s defense.
I would pull Cesar Hernandez off the field right now and have Leury replace him and Romy in RF.
Cesár Hernández fielded a coemebacker that deflected off Rodón, failed to tag Victor Reyes when he stopped in the baseline, and made a late throw to first. No one was out. It’s down to a 3-2 lead, and Rodón’s pitch count is drifting into the upper-60s
Cesar Hernandez was seen as a team friendly team option move that would replace Nick Madrigal defensively
Nevermind the metrics around him being a hitter that can’t hit fastballs and benefited from a 370 left center and 325 RF in Progressive field
He’s replaceable and useless
There are times I really like Cesar Hernandez, and there are other times I realize why Cleveland traded him to their division rival. #WhiteSox
I think I’m done with Cesar Hernandez after that
Yikes what the f**k was that 🤦🏾♂️
Victor Reyes with a little Javy Baez impression between first and second base. That gets the Tigers and run and extends the inning.
Cesar Hernandez will have nightmares about that one
What was Cesar Hernandez thinking? He tried to tag Victor Reyes without the ball in his glove.
Reyes is safe at second base. Jonathan Schoop is safe at first.
César Hernández what the fuck you doing?
Victor Reyes showing excellent stop-and-reverse speed on what looked like a simple double-play grounder from Jonathan Schoop. Cesar Hernandez tagged Reyes with the wrong hand, then threw late to 1B. E4 as run scores.

Remember when you guys convinced yourself Nick Madrigal carries minimal value but Cesar Hernandez was some deadline steal?
Trade deadline moves will be determined good or bad by how they do in the playoffs but passing on trading for Eduardo Escobar for Cesar Hernandez is looking like a brutal miss so far.
get cesar hernandez off my team
Cesar Hernandez is killing this inning. #WhiteSox will have a decision to make on the starting 2nd baseman in the playoffs. Leury Garcia is definitely in the conversation…#changethegame
Can't spell warning track power without Cesar Hernandez...
Did you know that every time someone tweets the phrase "Magic Number" Cesar Hernandez does something terrible?
Sept 20th: Sox F5 -0.5 ❌
Had a 3-0 lead and then CESAR HERNANDEZ screws us with 2 bad plays in the field 🤦🏻♂️. This just sucked https://t.co/OzRNaRPCjr
Cesar Hernandez flat out sucks folks. He just does. Garcia has to be the option in the playoffs.
When can we end the Cesar Hernandéz experiment?
Asking for a friend.
Talk about a player being terrible after a trade. Trading for Cesar Hernandez is the worst move the Sox have made since trading for Shields. At the plate he’s been mostly useless, but on defense (where he’s supposed to be best) he has been abysmal. Decline his option. #WhiteSox
Next blog: "Is Cesar Hernandez a sleeper agent? We discuss."
Start Leury and second and admit we lost the Cesar Hernandez trade. #Whitesox
Cesar Hernandez is full on struggleface right now
