Over/Under- Roberto Hernandez

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...

Hernandez Strong as Phillies Lose to Rays

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...

Philadelphia Phillies rumors: A.J. Burnett edition

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...

Report: Phillies Sign Pitcher Hernandez, Formerly Carmona

According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies will sign former Indians and Rays pitcher Roberto Hernandez to a one-year deal, pending a physical. You may remember Hernandez as the artist formerly known as Fausto Carmona. Through 2011, he played with that assumed name, which is the name he used to acquire a visa to play in the US. Hernandez was suspended by MLB for three...

Carmona's arrest leaves hole in rotation

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...

Carmona's deception a matter of money

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. Literally. 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...
