David Hernandez on trade to D-backs
My colleague Brittany Ghiroli got a hold of David Hernandez for his reaction to the deal to the D-backs. Here’s what he had to say.
“It’s bittersweet,” Hernandez said. “I have a weird feeling, I don’t know what to expect. But at the same time its exciting I’ll be close to home [California] all my family will be able to come out. The only bad thing is all the relationships and friendships I’ve made since 2005. I’ve made a lot of friends through the years.”
“I thought I was going to be there to see them turn it around in the next three or four years,” Hernandez said of the Orioles. “It’s something I wanted to do. But it just didn’t work out.”
“It’s always good when other teams value you, it makes you feel like you are definitely needed and wanted. I look at it as a fresh start.”
