Roberto Hernandez wasn’t particularly sharp today, which is becoming a usual trend. The Dodger offense was certainly active and gave the team a big lead, but depending on the bullpen this much was going to backfire at some point, and the Dodgers ultimately fell 8-7.
Hernandez only lasted four plus innings, allowing two runs while striking out four and walking two. He has not...
The first player to be named later from the August 7 Roberto Hernandez trade has been selected. Second baseman Jesmuel Valentin will be headed to the Philadelphia Phillies. Valetin, who turned 20 on May 12, was a supplemental first-round selection of the Dodgers in 2012 at 51st overall. Valentin is hitting .282/.352/.433 for the Single-A Great Lakes Loons. Each one of Valetin’s...
The Los Angeles Dodgers made a move to shore up the back end of their rotation on Thursday, acquiring Philadelphia Phillies RHP Roberto Hernandez for either two PTBNL or cash considerations.
I really don’t even know where to go with this.
Back when Roberto Hernandez was Fausto Carmona
On the surface, this looks like a decent move for the Dodgers. Hernandez, or the pitcher formerly...
Roberto Hernandez was one of the players that were placed on revocable waivers and he is one the first to be moved. According to MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki, the Philadelphia Phillies have traded Hernandez to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two players to be named later.
This is a solid move for the Phillies as they needed to make a trade this month. This season with the Phillies, Hernandez...
Today, the Dodgers acquired right-handed pitcher Roberto Hernandez from the Phillies because, I don’t know, reasons, I guess. (This is not the Dodger reliever of that name who I think I once drunkenly accused of lighting puppies on fire during an extra-inning live blog back in 2007; this is the artist formerly known as Fausto Carmona.)
Hernandez, if that is his real name — oh...

Hernandez (1-3) allowed one run, three hits, three walks and had seven strikeouts in his first win since Sept. 20, 2011, while with Cleveland.
The 32-year old right-hander was...

Earlier this week, the Tampa Bay Rays made a somewhat quiet signing in bringing aboard Roberto Hernandez on a one-year, $3.25 million deal (insert witty comment about identity fraud and whether or not they got the right guy).
The move was a bit surprising, given the Rays’ depth in their rotation, as well as the fact that the contract seems a bit heavy for a team like the Rays...
CLEVELAND -- Roberto Hernandez put his head down, then slowly and quietly answered very simply on Sunday.
No, he said, sounding near embarrassed.
Was it all worth it to Hernandez, the Cleveland Indians pitcher once known as Fausto Carmona. Was it worth the public embarrassment for the six years in the major leagues and the 14 milllion in salary he had been paid?
Hernandez said no...
Roberto Hernandez, contrite and remorseful, has apologized to the Cleveland Indians and their fans.
Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, joined the team Sunday for the first time since being permitted to return to the United States.
The right-hander thanked the organization for supporting him after he was arrested in the Dominican Republic in January outside the U.S. consulate...
