Hernandez has just given up 132 hits in 148 innings of work this season.
The Royals are firmly in last place in the AL Central and lost their fourth game in a row on Saturday. There will turn to Will Smith in order to try and salvage a win this afternoon in the series. Smith is pitching to a 6.26 ERA in 27 innings of work.
Seattle is 6-1 in their last seven games against the AL Central, 6-2 in their last eight games overall, and 5-2 in Hernandez’s last seven starts as a favorite.
