Cincinnati Reds Baseball: Rymon Hernanigan Is on Fire

Russell WightAnalyst IApril 5, 2011

I have never been a fan of platooning players in baseball. I always liked having a set lineup while giving the starter an occasional day of rest. Dusty Baker has a different idea when it comes to the Reds catching situation, and it has worked like a charm.

The combination of Ryan Hanigan and Ramon Hernandez has been more than productive both offensively and defensively. Hanigan catches Bronson Arroyo while Hernandez handles Edinson Volquez. The rest of the time, it usually depends on matchups and health.

Through the first three games of the 2011 season, the dynamic duo has put up some incredible offensive numbers. Here are the statistics (at least five at-bats), along with where they rank against the rest of Major League Baseball.

.750AVG(1st)
1.500SLG(2nd)
.769OBP(1st)
3HR(2nd)
7RBI(2nd)
18TB(T-1st)
