The Miami Marlins have informed outfielder Gorkys Hernandez that he will not make the team's Opening Day roster.

The Miami Marlins have informed outfielder Gorkys Hernandez that he will not make the team's Opening Day roster, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. As a result, the Marlins will explore potential trade options for Hernandez.

If the Marlins are unable to find a suitor for Hernandez, Frisaro notes that he will be outrighted to the minors. If he clears waivers, he would be eligible to be sent to Triple-A, but he could also be picked up by another team.

Hernandez made his major league debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates last season. After collecting two hits over 26 plate appearances with the Bucs, the 25-year-old was traded to the Marlins in exchange for Kyle Kaminska and Gaby Sanchez. Hernandez went on to hit .212/.288/.341 with eight extra-base hits and five stolen bases in seven attempts over 147 plate appearances with the Marlins.

Hernandez has hit .282/.370/.308 so far this spring for Miami. The former top prospect owns a career batting line of .281/.343/.377 over parts of seven seasons in the minors.
