|Roberto Hernandez pulled in third inning|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Rays starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez was pulled after pitching to one batter in the third inning of Saturday's game against the Orioles. He finished the day after allowing five earned runs on eight hits, striking out one and walking none, but didn't receive the loss after his team rallied in the ninth inning.
It was the shortest outing of the season for Hernandez, who pitched at least six innings in six of his first seven starts. His next turn in the rotation comes Friday against the Yankees.

(5/12/13) Rays starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez improved to 2-4 after Sunday's 4-2 win against the Padres. The right-hander allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in six innings, while striking out four.
Hernandez had a 1-0 lead before the Padres tied the game in the fourth and took the lead in the fifth on a solo home by from Alexi Amarista. Hernandez has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts.
Hernandez is expected to start Saturday at Baltimore. He is 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA in two starts against Baltimore this season.
|Roberto Hernandez has best outing with Rays|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/7/13) Rays starter Roberto Hernandez, who had his last start wiped out by inclement weather, finished a strong outing Tuesday at home against Toronto. Unfortunately, the Rays' bullpen couldn't hold another lead.
Hernandez needed 103 pitches to allow just one earned run on five hits and a walk over six solid innings, but he settled for a no-decision despite leaving the game with a 4-1 lead. He struck out seven and his only mistake was allowing a solo homer to Adam Lind in the second. His ERA is at 4.66.
The 32-year-old had arguably his best outing with the Rays, as his record stands at 1-4. He's walked just one batter over his last two starts after allowing 10 free passes in his first four outings. Hernandez is slowly pitching better and he'll hope that continues when he next takes the mound Sunday against San Diego.
|Rain, snow wipe out Roberto Hernandez's start|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) Rays starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez, who endured a rough outing his last time out, turned in a decent effort before his outing was interrupted by inclement weather.
Thursday's contest between the Rays and the Royals was postponed due to rain and snow. Hernandez, who entered Thursday 1-4 with a 5.28 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP, surrendered one run and three hits in three innings of work. He struck out two and walked one on 42 pitches.
The Rays have yet announce their pitching plans for Hernandez. He is originally scheduled to start Tuesday at home against Toronto, barring any changes. The veteran right-hander is 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA in two starts at Tropicana Field.
|Roberto Hernandez needs to remain calm under pressure|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) Rays starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez takes the hill Thursday at Kansas City having lost four of his first five starts. He allowed at least four runs for the fourth time in his last start Friday against the White Sox and manager Joe Maddon said the veteran right-hander needs to slow down on the hill.
"When he's gotten hit a couple of times, he's speeding up a little bit, and the ball gets up in the zone," Maddon said, per MLB.com. "Because he has a tendency to want to over-boogie sometimes. To me, he's a classic example of a guy who could try easier, or try less, when it gets hotter. Don't try to throw harder, try actually to throw softer when things get hotter. And I think to this point, he's done the opposite of that, where he tries to do more. My point is, if he tried to do less, the ball would move more down and work to his benefit."
|Much of Roberto Hernandez's final year with the Indians -- and the only year in which he was not known as Fausto Carmona -- was lost to his dealing with an identity fraud charge in the Dominican Republic. When he finally rejoined the team, he was limited to three starts, as he left his final start with a sprained ankle. It's easy to dismiss Hernandez, as his career is pockmarked with several truly awful seasons. When he has established command and been able to strand baserunners, he has been successful. The Rays inked Hernandez to a one-year, $3.25 million deal this offseason to provide them with rotation depth. Though he could spend most of the year in the bullpen, Hernandez is worth a flyer in AL-only leagues, as he could provide some inexpensive rotation help for Fantasy owners at some point during the season.
