#Indians manager Manny Acta just said RHP Roberto Hernandez will start Wed. night vs. #Angels. — Nick Camino (@CaminoTribe) August 11, 2012
Starting off today’s media availability, Indians manager Manny Acta shared that Roberto Hernandez (Fasuto Carmona) will be activated to start Wednesday’s game against the LA Angels. WTAM’s Nick Camino was the first person to put the news out on Twitter. Hernandez, who was discovered to be 32 years old in the offseason, was eligible to be activated by the Indians today after his three-week MLB suspension. He made his final rehab start for the Columbus Clippers last night and it was by far his best performance. He earned the win in allowing just one run on four hits in seven innings, striking out five against one walk. In his six-year MLB career with the Indians, Hernandez is 53-66 with a 4.59 ERA in 181 games (150 starts). He peaked in 2007 — which is more logical now, since he was 26 years old then — in finishing fourth in the Cy Young voting. He went 19-8 with a 3.06 ERA that year. In the pending roster move, it will likely be either lefty Chris Seddon (0-1, 5.06 ERA) or righty Corey Kluber (0-0, 6.10 ERA) going back to Columbus. Both have made just two starts for the Indians after pitching all season for the Clippers. [Related: Contention Windows and Depth Charts: Analyzing the Cleveland Indians’ Future]
