If Kiké Hernández is known around MLB for one thing, it's probably his personality. It's no surprise that the known jokester, as Boston Red Sox fans know very well, broke the news of him joining a team for 2024 with a funny tweet.

Hernández is back with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team he's most known for playing with, after a long spell in free agency this offseason.

Rumors circulated that Hernández was expected to sign in the coming days, but the Dodgers were not among the list of teams he was reportedly choosing from. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that the Giants Angels, Padres and Twins were all in on Hernández, but in true Kiké fashion, he punked them all.

Hernández's deal with Los Angeles is for one year. Further details of the contract have not yet been announced.

Former Red Sox Kiké Hernández has signed with the Dodgers... again.

Hernández's commitment to the Dodgers surfaced shortly after they traded offseason acquisition Manuel Margot to the Twins in exchange for Noah Miller, an infield prospect. Almost as soon as Margot's roster spot opened, Hernández swooped in to return to where he wanted to be all along — LA.

Hernández is a versatile player who has experience all over the diamond. He's a career .239 hitter and is most well-known among Red Sox fans for his play during the 2021 club's ALCS run. In the four ALDS games against the Rays, Hernández hit .450 with three doubles and two homers. The following series, Hernández let the Astros have it — he hit a double, a triple and three homers.

Hernández never had as much success again in a Red Sox uniform and his tenure with the club didn't end on the greatest note. His 2022 and 2023 performances left much to be desired and resulted in him being traded back to LA midway through last season.

Even after reposting his 2021 goodbye post to the Dodgers organization earlier this morning, Hernández can't stay away. For the next year, he'll be back in Dodger Blue where he belongs.
