HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on July 31, 2018.
A rangy defender with international experience, Hernandez has been brought along carefully by the FC Dallas technical staff, spending time on loan at Guatemalan side Comunicaciones and in Costa Rica with Saprissa in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Broke into the FCD starting lineup at left back in 2014, but found himself second-choice behind Ryan Hollingshead down the stretch a year later. .
OUTSIDE MLS: Loaned to Rayo OKC for the 2016 season. He appeared in 26 matches with one goal and one assist for the NASL side that season. Hernandez signed with Comunicaciones in 2017, appearing in 46 matches over two seasons.
INTERNATIONAL: Hernandez’s father Javier is from Guatemala and his mother Maria is from Edinburg, Texas, giving him dual US/Guatemalan eligibility. He was a member of the US U-20 national team player pool, but eventually accepted a call-up from Guatemala and made his Chapines debut in 2015. Started two of Guatemala's three Gold Cup games that summer.
