That's neither here nor there.
CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury is reporting that the Phillies have signed Roberto Hernandez and the deal is pending a physical. Hernandez spent the 2013 season pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays.
Hernandez, 33, was known as Fausto Carmona until January 2012 when it was discovered that he had lied about his identity and his age. He was born in 1980 but he reported that he was born in 1983. His best season in the majors came with the Indians came in 2007 when he went 19-8 with a 3.06 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. He pitched in Cleveland from 2006-2012 where he was teammates with current Phillies starter Cliff Lee.
Last season in Tampa, Hernandez was 6-13 with a 4.89 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP in 32 games (24 starts).
I don't hate this signing. I liked Hernandez back when he was Carmona in 2009/2010 when he was rumored to be in play for the Phillies. Hopefully he is a decent No. 5.
