Fernando Hernandez was drafted by the Chicago White Sox as a draft-and-follow pick in the 49th round of the 2002 amateur draft. After a year of junior college he was signed by scout Jose Ortega and made his pro debut in 2003.
Hernandez made his major league debut by pitching one inning of scoreless relief and picking up the win for the 2008 Oakland Athletics against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 9th. He had been picked up from the Chicago White Sox in the previous winter's 2007 Rule V Draft. However, Hernandez's stint in the major leagues was short-lived: after giving up 6 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks in two innings over his next two outings, he was designated for assignment on April 14th. Hernandez was returned to the White Sox on April 16th, and never returned to the major leagues after that.
