Roberto Hernandez Making First Rehab Start Thursday

Roberto Hernandez, who as you all know by now was once known as Fausto Carmona, has had a long journey back to playing baseball in the USA.

Without boring you once again with all the details, he’s getting closer to returning to the Cleveland Indians:

Lake County and West Michigan are in the Low-A Midwest League, so he’ll probably get three or four more starts before he gets back to the major leagues. He’s serving a three-week suspension while this rehab assignment goes on, so you can figure the minor-league assignment will last that long. That puts him on target for a return to Cleveland about mid-August. The Tribe still has a shot at one of the wild-card spots, so they’ll welcome him back no matter what his name is now.
