4. Enrique Hernandez (Kike) (Banana Boy)
Kike is another low cost solid acquisition by the front office. The Dodgers acquired the super utility player from the Miami Marlins in the Dee Gordon trade. Thus far he has exceeded expectations. He’s slashed .269/.310/.484 (25 for 93) with three home runs and nine runs batted in while playing in 37 games off the bench. He’s posted a 118 OPS+ in 100n plate appearances. He can play all over the diamond, seeing time at LF, CF, RF, SS, 2B, with league average defense. He’s also provided a unique spark off the bench for the club. His enthusiasm gives the Dodgers energy in the dugout and the clubhouse. Just recently he went 3 for 3 with a single, double and triple in the Dodger’s 4-3 win over Arizona on Wednesday evening. Now if we can just do something about this whole rally banana thing.
