Roberto Hernandez Apologizes To Cleveland Fans, Fans Are Just As Confused As You Are

"But he...that guy looks"

Hi! How you doing? Remember how Fausto Carmona is actually 31-years-old and not named Fausto Carmona? Well, he got himself a visa so he's back with the Indians—still not named Fausto Carmona—and apologizing for not being a younger pitcher named Fausto Carmona.


While he is back with the team now, Hernandez will not join the rotation immediately because he must serve a three week suspension for falsifying his identity.

Update 5:13 p.m.: Indians players treated Hernandez to a triple birthday party with three cakes to make up for the difference in age between Hernandez and Carmona.
