Friday, the Boston Red Sox reportedly signed free-agent Kiké Hernandez to a $14 million two-year deal.

From 2015, Hernandez had been a utility fielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers. During this period, he had made several game-saving defensive plays. Moreover, he had crucial hits. No Dodger fan will ever forget in Game 5 of the 2017 NLCS where his team clinched their first World Series for the first time since 1988.

Hernandez’s personality made him a fan favorite. His unique sense of humor lightened up the Dodgers. The rally banana made us laugh. During a game against the Colorado Rockies in 2020, while being interviewed by Alanna Rizzo, there was a drone on the field, and Hernandez famously said, “I don’t feel safe! I don’t feel safe!” It was hilarious, something that I would not soon forget.

Hernandez’s contributions to the Dodger organization will live forever. While in Boston, Hernandez shall have an opportunity to prove himself as an everyday player. I wish him all the best, but he will always be a Dodger.
