Ramon Hernandez was the catcher for the San Diego Padres in 2004 and 2005, when he wasn't on the DL. He could hit for average with power. Hernandez's hitting was a major reason the Padres made it to the NLDS in 2005, even though he was on the DL for a long stretch. Knowing he would soon be a free agent, Ramon decided to get surgery on his wrist in the middle of the season, much to dismay of Kevin Towers. When he came back at the end of the season, he hit like crazy. He was not asked back and then he went to play for the Baltimore Orioles.
