Anderson Hernandez traded to Mets
The Nationals have traded second baseman Anderson Hernandez to the Mets on Thursday. It’s not known who the Nationals would get in return.
The switch-hitting Hernandez started the season as the everyday second baseman, but he slumped badly and hit .255 during the first half. He was then told before the All-Star break by then-manager Manny Acta and current manager Jim Riggleman that he would lose playing time to Alberto Gonzalez, who was a hot hitter at the time.
