With the Indians starting staff currently in a rut, any sort of good news would be welcome. Not this this would take effect immediately, but the Tribe front office is hoping that they could get a shot in the arm after the All-Star break, in the form of a familiar face.
According to the PD’s Paul Hoynes, Roberto Hernandez, the artist formerly known as Fausto Carmona, could be returning to Cleveland sooner than expected.
A lobbyist working on behalf of Roberto Hernandez, the Indians pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona, said he could be back in the United States by the All-Star break.
“I think there is a good chance Roberto could be in Cleveland by the All-Star break,” said Stephen Payne, a visa expert and lobbyist hired Hernandez’s agents.
It seems as though this possible development of optimism in Hernandez’s camp comes after Juan Carlos Oviedo, the Miami Marlins pitcher who like Hernandez was found out to be someone other than Leo Nunez, was allowed to return to the United States last week. MLB suspended Oviedo for eight weeks. Hernandez could face disciplinary action from the league, though he agreed to a huge pay cut from the Indians to avoid a similar fate to that of Oviedo.
