Hernandez has been out since May 24. Having him back will help Rosario, who leans on Hernandez during games for advice— Troy Renck, Rockies (@TroyRenck) July 4, 2012
Prior to being sidelined with the injury, Hernandez appeared in 27 games and hit .215/.260/.398 with five doubles, four home runs and 15 RBI.
Wilin Rosario has handled the bulk of the catching duties in Hernandez's absence.
