Found January 23, 2012 on Star Tribune:
Colorado has since traded Slowey for a better relief prospect, but there's more to it than that.

Can Kevin Slowey Replace “Fausto Carmona”?

Other than noting the unfortunate nature of the whole story, I don’t have much to say about the pitcher formerly known as Fausto.  From what I can gather, it sounds like he’s not going to make it to Spring Training.  Which, I believe, means he’ll be put on the “restricted” list, a form of MLB purgatory wherein you do not receive a paycheck.  It’s mostly a sad story...

The Colorado Rockies deal Kevin Slowey to the Indians

The Rockies have sent 27-year old righty starting pitcher Kevin Slowey to the Cleveland Indians for 24-year old righty reliever Zach Putnam. Slowey was acquired earlier this winter in a deal with the Twins, so he didn’t get a chance to pitch for the Rockies. Putnam pitched in 8 games (0 starts) for the Indians last year (his first taste of the majors) and he was 1-1 with a 6...

Indians' Carmona put on restricted list

Indians pitcher Fausto Carmona has been placed on baseball's restricted list following his arrest for false identity. Carmona was arrested last week in the Dominican Republic on charges he falsified his name and birthdate to play in the U.S. Authorities in his homeland say his real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia and that he's 31 -- three years older than the Indians believed...

Pressing Questions: The Cleveland Indians

When the Cleveland Indians acquired Ubaldo Jimenez at the deadline last season, they trailed Detroit by just a game and a half in the American League Central. It was an aggressive move, no doubt, as the Tribe sent four prospects to the Rockies, including highly regarded pitchers Drew Pomeranz and Alex White. But the team was within range of the Tigers, so they played to win the flag...

Younger Is Not Always Better In The Dominican

Age falsification continues to be a thorn in Major League Baseball’s collective side. Cleveland Indians’ right-hander Fausto Carmona was taken into custody in the Dominican Republic last week for using a false identity. Reports state that he is 31-years-old (three years older than advertised) and that his real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia. This latest arrest not only dredges...

Carmona points out an MLB inequity

Goodbye Fausto! Hello Roberto! As reported last week, 28-year-old Fausto Carmona is Roberto Hernandez Heredia and perhaps 31 years old. There are implications here for Carmona-Heredia, for the Indians and, most importantly, for professional baseball and the uneven way it deals with international players. Since being released on bail, The Sinkerballer Formally Known as Fausto has...

Former Indian Omar Vizquel Signs Deal With Toronto At Age 45

Putnam f/x

For the second time this offseason, Kevin Slowey has been traded. This time, he’s going from the Rockies to the Indians. The return for Colorado is 24-year-old reliever Zach Putnam, who had a cup of coffee with the Indians in September. You know what that means? It means that we have 114 pitches worth of PITCHf/x for Putnam’s debut. Before we get into that, though, let...
