Enrique Hernandez: (2015-20 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, P, DH)

No one epitomizes the Dodgers front office philosophy on having versatile fielders like Enrique “Kiké” Hernandez.

Brought to the team in 2015 after a trade with Miami Marlins, Hernandez played every position on the field except for the catcher at least once in his six seasons with the Dodgers.

During his Dodgers career, Hernandez played at least 20 games at second, third, shortstop, center, and right field. He also played at least 15 games at every outfield position between 2015-17. Hernandez offered a potent bat off the bench, coming in as pinch hitter at least 20 times between 2015-19. Hernandez hit six home runs and drove in 20 runs as a pinch-hitter while also scoring 22 times.

During the postseason, Hernandez played multiple positions, going between the infield and outfield while also providing much-needed pop. His eight playoff home runs in his Dodgers career is good enough for fourth in franchise history.
