Anderson Hernández Mejia (born October 30, 1982) is a Dominican professional baseball infielder who is a free agent. He has played in Major League Baseball for the New York Mets, Washington Nationals, Cleveland Indians, and Houston Astros as well as for the Chunichi Dragons of Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB).

Professional career

Detroit Tigers

He was signed as an undrafted free agent at age 18 by the Detroit Tigers in 2001. In the minor leagues, Hernández showed poor patience and high strikeouts typical of a teenager[citation needed] and did not rise past single-A until 2004. In his first season, he batted .264/.303/.389 with 34 stolen bases in just 216 at-bats. However, he progressed slowly. In 2002, playing in High-A ball, he showed poor hitting skills, batting just .259/.310/.339. The next season was even worse. Hernandez struggled to hit above the Mendoza line, (.229/.278/.295) and stole just 15 bases. But the next season started off well for him. After batting .295 with 11 RBI in about 100 AB, he was called up to Double-A Erie where he batted .274 with 5 home runs, 29 RBI, and 17 stolen bases. In January 2005, Hernández was traded to the New York Mets for catcher Vance Wilson.[1]

New York Mets

In January 2005, Hernández was traded to the New York Mets for catcher Vance Wilson.[1] With the Mets out of playoff contention in 2005 and Hernández hitting over .300 in both Double-A and Triple-A, he was called up to the majors in mid-September but went 0-for-14 before finally getting his first hit, off Colorado Rockies pitcher Aaron Cook, in the last game of the season, going 1–4. Due to the knee injury of Kazuo Matsui, Hernández was the starting second baseman for the Mets to start the 2006 season, but he too was soon injured and placed on the 15-day DL. He returned later in the season and hit his first Major League home run on September 19, 2006, off Florida Marlins pitcher Scott Olsen. He is widely known to Mets fans for pinch-running for Paul LoDuca in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals, representing the winning run with two out, but Carlos Beltrán struck out to end the game. In 2007, he made many appearances as a pinch-runner or a late inning defensive replacement, as he only collected three at-bats and went 1–3. On August 20, 2008, Hernández was dealt to the Washington Nationals as a player to be named later for relief pitcher Luis Ayala.[2]

Hernández had the opportunity to compete for the starting second baseman position, but lost to Jayson Nix; he was subsequently used in a utility infielder role. On July 18, 2010, Hernández was designated for assignment to make room on the active roster for pitcher Jeanmar Gómez.[5] Hernández was claimed off waivers by the Houston Astros on July 21, 2010.[6]
