The pitcher most people still know as Fausto Carmona is actually Roberto Hernandez, and Hernandez is on his way back to the United States.
Hernandez was arrested in the Dominican Republic for using a false identity, specifically the identity of a 28-year-old man named Fausto Carmona. Hernandez is actually 31, and has received a work visa to return to the United States. He will serve a three-week suspension for age and identity fraud before he returns to the Cleveland Indians.
Hernandez is allowed to pitch in the minor leagues during his suspension, rendering it effectively meaningless. He did not attend spring training and would have needed a few starts in the minors before re-joining the Indians in the major leagues anyway. His contract has been re-worked as a result of his age and identity fraud, but he is still under contract with the Indians.
