Free agent second baseman Cesar Hernandez has agreed to return to the Cleveland Indians on a 1-year contract, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The team and Hernandez have an agreement, which includes a club option for 2022, in place and it will become official once medical tests have been completed. Hernandez had a solid season for the Indians in 2020 after he was signed as a free agent following seven years in Philadelphia.

It turns out there wasn’t another Liam Hendriks type deal on the free agent market for former Indians closer Brad Hand. Hand, according to reports, has come to terms on a one-year $10.5 million deal with the Washington Nationals providing he passes his physical. The Indians made Hand a free agent in November when they didn’t exercise his $10 million option for 2021.
