Roberto Hernandez, formerly Fausto Carmona, wins first game since name change

It has been quite awhile since Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona had won a game on the mound.

Yesterday, for the Tampa Bay Rays, he pitched effectively for six innings, allowed one earned run, three hits, three walks and seven strikeouts in an 8-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.

The win was his first since becoming Roberto Hernandez and he is 1-3 to start the 2013 season.

The victory was also his since September 20, 2011 when he pitched for the Cleveland Indians.

The 32-year-old right-hander has changed his life after completing a work program. He was arrested in the Dominican Republic in January of 2012 on false-identity charges. The charges were later dropped.

Hernandez has a career record of 54-72 with an ERA of 4,64 and 592 strikeouts.

Reports say Indians give contract extension to Cabrera

The Cleveland Indians don’t usually give players contract extensions.

The last one was given to the Fausto Carmona, who real name is Roberto Hernandez.

Reports out of Cleveland say that the team has reached an agreement with shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera for two years through the 2014 season.

Rumors have it that the contract is worth $16.5 million. Cabrera during the off-season had agreed to a one-year, $4.55 million deal to avoid the arbitration process.

The 26-year-old Cabrera is starting his fifth MLB season.

He would’ve been eligible for free agency after 2013.

The Cleveland Indians have found a pitcher who could fill the void in their starting staff to replace Fausto Carmona, who is on baseball’s restricted list as he faces false identity charges in the Dominican Republic.

The Tribe has signed free agent pitcher Jon Garland to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old Garland went 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in with 9 starts for the Dodgers last season.

He won 14 games for the Padres in 2010.

The right-hander has won at least 12 games seven times and had two 18-win seasons as the ace of the Chicago White Sox.

Garland has also pitched for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Arizona. He has pitched twice for the Dodgers.

His career totals includes a 132-119 won-loss record, 4.32 ERA with 1,124 strikeouts.

Garland, who had shoulder surgery last July, will be in Goodyear, Arizona next week to take a physical. If he passes all the tests, he’ll officially sign the Indians’ contract and will have a chance to make the team’s starting rotation.

Indians decide against 2012 option for Sizemore

For several years, there was no doubt that All-Star outfielder Grady Sizemore was the face of the Cleveland Indians franchise. He was very popular with the fans for his hustling, exciting brand of baseball. The female fanbase like him for his good looks and always wore shirts with “Mrs. Sizemore” on them

But for 2012, he may not be in Cleveland.

The Tribe declined Sizemore’s $9 million contract option earlier this week. The knock against Grady is that he is too injury-prone and can’t play more than 70-100 games a year. He will become a free agent.

The move was not surprising and was expected because the Indians wanted to pick up starting pitcher Fausto Carmona’s $7 million option for 2012.

However, Sizemore could still play in Cleveland next season. The Indians have until 12:01 a.m. Thursday to exclusively negotiate with Sizemore, who can start contract talks with other MLB teams. Sizemore and his agent says they’ll still negotiate a contract to remain in Cleveland.

The 29-year-old centerfielder played in only 71 games last season, hitting .224 with 10 homers and 32 RBI’s. 2011 was his seventh full season with Cleveland, who received him in a trade from Montreal in the 2002 blockbuster trade that included Cliff Lee, Brandon Phillips and Lee Stevens for then-ace pitcher Bartolo Colon.

Eventhough the young Cleveland Indians fell short of the playoffs and a division title, their general manager Chris Antonelli says the payroll will increase for 2012, even before it goes outside to sign free agents or make trades.

The Indians had a 2011 payroll of around $49 million. That total was a decrease from the $61 million in 2010 and 81 million in 2009.

The Indians drew more than $1.8 million fans in 2011, an increase of almost $450,000 from the 2010 season.

The team has to decide whether to pick up the options on center fielder Grady Sizemore ($9 million) and pitcher Fausto Carmona ($7 million).
