Leonardo Jesús Hernández (born November 6, 1959), commonly known as Leo Hernandez (er-NAN-dez), is a former Major League Baseball third baseman and right-handed batter who played for the Baltimore Orioles (1982–83, 1985) and New York Yankees (1986).
Hernández was a talented player capable to field and run well, and bat with power and for average, but he never reached a better status probably for one reason: he played much of his career for a team that rarely made headlines above him, and if it was the case, only was looking comparisons between departed superstar Brooks Robinson and him. The permanent Robinson's shadow affected the Hernandez defensive abilities and cost him power numbers that may have given him notoriety. Finally, assorted leg and shoulder injuries and attitude problems cost him playing time.
