Dodgers News And Rumors: Dodgers Acquire Hernandez

[new_royalslider id=”274″]

With the recent struggles and injuries of right-handed starters Dan Haren and Josh Beckett, the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired former Philadelphia Phillies’ hurler Roberto Hernandez for two players to be named later or cash considerations.

Hernandez, previously known as Fausto Carmona, currently owns a 6-8 record with a 3.87 ERA. He has 75 strikeouts in 121 innings pitched while boasting a 1.347 WHIP.

In 2007, Hernandez finished fourth in the CY Young voting while a member of the Cleveland Indians. He was 19-8 with a 3.06 ERA. Since then, the right-hander has struggled to regain form as he has struggled with the multiple teams since his 2007 campaign.

While Haren may have salvaged his spot in the rotation after an impressive start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Hernandez will get the start on Friday in Milwaukee.
