MLB (w/ LA)
What happened in 2014: The man with many names was acquired from the Phillies in August and was, predictably, bad.
It’s hard to believe the Dodgers, with all their resources, had to acquire guys like Kevin Correia and Roberto Hernandez Faustowhatever to fill out their rotation. That should have been...
MILWAUKEE -- In the matter of a week and a half, the Milwaukee Brewers have went from feeling great about their first half of the season to trying to make it to the All-Star break without their current skid from getting out of hand.

Just when the Philadelphia Phillies' season seemed to be slipping away, they came up with a breakthrough performance offensively and beat the majors' ERA leader.
"That will go a long way going into (Saturday) with momentum with a lot of guys," manager Ryne Sandberg said.

We wrap up the 2014 Philadelphia Phillies preview of the starting rotation today with the guy in the 5th slot, Roberto Hernandez.Pros: He was signed to only a 1 year deal, hasn't balked since 2011 (really, there aren't many positives with him, so I'm reaching). Cons: Hasn't been decent since he was named Fausto Carmona back in 2010, low strikeout rate, gives up lots a hits. He...
Currently, of all the worries with the Phillies, the rotation ranks highest. Roberto Hernandez is hoping to give the team stability every fifth day and he showed today he could be capable.
Hernandez had a solid outing, tossing three scoreless frames while striking out three. The Phillies, however, fell to the Rays, 6-1.

It is less than two weeks until pitchers and catchers report in Clearwater, and the Philadelphia Phillies could still afford to make some improvements to their roster. One area in particular that could use some help is the starting rotation, as the options after Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee are not that great. At this point in the offseason there often are not too many options teams...
Roberto Hernandez, nee Fausto Carmona, has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal worth $4.5 million with the Philadelphia Phillies. There is an additional $1.5 million he could gain in incentives.
