Return To Sender: Washington Nationals Trade Anderson Hernandez Back To The New York Mets...

Washington Post writer Tracee Hamilton is reporting, in an article entitled, "Hernandez Traded Back To Mets For Minor Leaguer" that the Washington Nationals have sent second baseman Anderson Hernandez back to the same New York Mets they acquired the 26-year-old infielder from back on August 20, 2008. The initial deal sent former DC set-up man Luis Ayala to NY in exchange for Hernandez, who goes back with minor league second baseman Greg Veloz coming to DC this time. Hernandez was stuck on the bench in DC, having played just 77 games this season in which he hit .251 with 9 doubles, 2 triples, 1 HR and 23 RBI's while posting a .310 OBP, .320 SLG and a .630 OPS. Hernandez hasn't received regular playing time since June prompting some to question his status in recent weeks. The Mets, who lost Luis Castillo to an ankle injury when he fell on the dugout steps Tuesday night, have been plagued by injuries all season, and they are apparently desperate enough that they're bringing Hernandez back into the fold.
