Astros sign Roberto Hernandez to minor league deal

The Astros have signed free agent pitcher Roberto Hernandez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Hernandez, 34, could not find a major league deal this winter after posting a 4.10 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 105/73 K/BB ratio in 164 2/3 innings last season between the Phillies and Dodgers. The Astros could use Hernandez – who formerly was known as Fausto...

2014 Player Reviews: Roberto Hernandez

Padres 6, Dodgers 3: Fauxto’d

Well, I guess this is what I get for getting so many Clayton Kershaw recaps. Roberto Hernandez did his best Fausto Carmona impression at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night, as the Padres took down the Dodgers 6-3. Carmona Hernandez didn’t get any help from his defense. After allowing two runners to reach with two outs in the second inning, Andrew Cashner (the pitcher) hit a line-drive...

Dodgers need to place more value on low-level prospects

It sucks that the team with the highest payroll in the history of American sports is in this position, but here we are. The Dodgers actually have replacement-level pitchers in their rotation. That’s fine; injuries happen. But General Manager Ned Colletti continues to confound by overpaying for mediocre talent. The Dodgers sent 19-year-old right-handed pitching prospect Victor Arano...

Roberto Hernandez To the Dodgers

When it was announced that the Philadelphia Phillies had put pitcher, Cole Hamels on waivers, many around the baseball community immediately went on “Hamels-Watch”. Well, on Thursday, the Phillies finally traded a pitcher. Well, it wasn’t exactly the one everyone thought (Hamels), nor was it disgruntled closer, Jonathan Papelbon. It was… ROBERTO HERNANDEZ!

Dodgers Acquire Roberto Hernandez, Because Desperation

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...

Byrd’s Homer Lifts Phils Over Nats

With the game tied 1-1 in the sixth inning, Marlon Byrd launched a solo home run–his 21st on the year–to right field, which ended up being the eventual game winner. Phillies starter Robert Hernandez tossed eight strong innings, allowing just one run (unearned), and five hits. Jonathan Papelbon saved his 26th game of the year. The win guarantees at least a split in this four game...
