He still came stateside in 2008 with the GCL Marlins and went 0-1 with two saves and a 2.70 ERA. He ended his US career in 2009 with the GCL Marlins (2-1, 2 Sv, 1.10, .83 WHIP) and Jupiter Hammerheads (2 H in 1/3 IP). He signed with Spain's FC Barcelona club for 2011. On February 27, he made a splash on Opening Day, tossing a 17-strikeout no-hitter against the Astros Valencia. Hernandez walked none but hit a batter and an error by Oscar Angulo cost him a perfect game. In his second game, he tossed a one-hitter against CB Viladecans.
