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...
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.
Michael Stutes looked terrible, giving up five runs in an inning...
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.

Released on $13,000 bond, Carmona/Hernandez will have to endure the Dominican legal process...
The Indians are faced with a potential hole in their starting rotation in the wake of Fausto Carmona's arrest for identity theft on Jan. 19 in the Dominican Republic.
Carmona's arrest made his availability for the start of spring training, and perhaps for the start of the regular season, very questionable.
Before Carmona's arrest, the Indians appeared to be in a position...
Theres probably nothing quite like running a major league baseball team and waking up to find out one of the guys youre counting on is not who you thought he was.
One day the Cleveland Indians feel like Fausto Carmona is an erratic but still reasonably young pitcher who might be able to turn around a rocky career.
A few hours later hes a post-30 guy whose best days might...
Cleveland Indians starter Fausto Carmona was arrested in the Dominican Republic on Thursday for using a false identity, Dionisio Soldevila of the Associated Press reported on Twitter.
Soldevila said Carmona is actually 31 -- not 28, as he's listed on the Indians' official website -- and that his name is actually Roberto Hernandez. The legal action could prevent Carmona from...
