In 48 games last season, Hernández batted.230/.270/.410 with five home homers.

Throughout his career, Hernández has played second base, center field, left field, and shortstop. Additionally, he has started 35 games in right field, 14 at third base, and 11 at first base, and has pitched once, in an extra-inning game in 2018.

He might get more consistent playing time with the Red Sox than he would with the Dodgers, having averaged 418 plate appearances and 91 starts per 162 games over the past four seasons.

According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Red Sox have agreed to a two-year, $14 million deal with utility player Kiké Hernandez. MassLive reported Thursday that Boston was in discussion with Hernandez and that tensions were rising between the two parties.

Hernandez, 29, has played every position except catcher for the Dodgers over the previous six seasons. He’ll likely get a shot at becoming the club’s regular second baseman while also having the capacity to play outfield and back up Xander Bogaerts at shortstop in Boston.

Boston started the offseason with Christian Arroyo as the club’s internal preference to start at second base in 2021, while it was always evident that the team would aggressively pursue free agent upgrades. Though the Red Sox had early negotiations with typical second basemen like Kolten Wong and Cesar Hernandez, they chose Hernandez over Marwin Gonzalez and Jurickson Profar (who re-signed with San Diego earlier Friday).

Hernández, 29, is a career.263/.345/.474 hitter against left-handed pitchers, a 120 wRC+, however, he batted.217/.260/.413 in 50 plate appearances in the shortened 2020 season, a 79 wRC+.

Hernández hit.240/.313/.425 with a 99 WRC+ in seven major league seasons, the final six with the Dodgers. He also had three home runs and seven RBIs in Game 5 of the 2017 National League Championship Series, which clinched the Dodgers’ first World Series trip in 29 years.

Hernández reunites with manager Alex Cora, who served as general manager of Puerto Rico’s national baseball team at the 2017 World Baseball Classic when Hernández went 4-for-15 (.267) with a triple and Puerto Rico finished second. Cora was also banned by MLB for the 2020 season for his part in the 2017 Astros’ sign-stealing controversy while serving as bench coach. The Astros defeated Hernández and the Dodgers in that year’s World Series.
