Roberto Hernandez informed he made Astros rotation
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) Pitcher Roberto Hernandez has been informed that he made the Astros' Opening Day roster, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle.
The 34-year-old Hernandez signed with the Astros on February 12. He went 3-0 with a 3.71 ERA in five spring games.
"I like the dependability of Roberto, his veteran presence," manager A.J. Hinch said to MLB.com. "He can log some innings. I really like that this spring he's kept the ball on the ground, and he's very reliable. He's a guy who's been on a couple of different teams in a couple of different environments. You know what you're going to get with Roberto. He's stuck around this game a long time because he's a good pitcher."
Astros pitcher Roberto Hernandez making final staff decision difficult
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Astros pitcher Roberto Hernandez is still in the fight for the final spot on the pitching staff. He continued to prove why he belongs Saturday, allowing one run on three hits in five innings of work against the Marlins.
Manager A.J. Hinch continues to like what he's seen from the veteran, who is battling with Asher Wojciechowski, reports MLB.com.
"He had a nice game by getting through some very difficult jams and also getting a lot of ground balls," Hinch said. "I don't know what his total was, but it felt like they were pounding the ball into the ground, which is vintage Roberto Hernandez. There's a reason he's lasted this long in the league and you know what you're going to get and he found a way today."
Hernandez threw 71 pitches Saturday with 43 going for strikes.
"I don't think about that," Hernandez said when asked about his chances of making the team. "I want to continue my work and I never think about, 'Is it my last start?' I'm happy."
Astros' final rotation spot down to Wojciechowski, Hernandez

|(3/26/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Thursday that the final spot in the rotation is down between Asher Wojciechowski and Roberto Hernandez, according to the Houston Chronicle.
"I'm not really making declarations at this point," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "Coming into next week, we'd like to have a clearer picture, but today, on Thursday, there's still many [bullpen] combos we could go with."
Wojciechowski owns a 1.08 ERA through five spring outings (two starts). He has 13 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings. Hernandez has 4.50 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP and 4:5 K:BB ratio over 12 innings of work this spring.
Astros' SP competition down to Hernandez, Deduno, Wojciechowski
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) With the demotion of Dan Straily to the minors on Monday, the competition for the final spot in the Astros rotation is down to Roberto Hernandez, Asher Wojciechowski and Samuel Deduno.
Although, general manager Jeff Lunhow seemed to indicate Hernandez, who is in camp on a minor-league deal, might be the favorite for the final spot in the rotation.
"You look at what's going on with other clubs around baseball, and there's a lot of injuries, and having extra pitchers that are major league-caliber is something we value," general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Hernandez. "That's definitely a consideration."
Wojciechowski has a 0.75 ERA through four spring outings (one start). Hernandez is 3-0 with a 4.50 ERA through four outings (two starts). Deduno is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA through four appearances (one start).
Astros pitchers Straily, Hernandez continue to push for rotation spot
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch likes the position he's in. At some point, he will make a decision between four options for a spot in the starting rotation. Sunday, both Dan Straily and Roberto Hernandez impressed Hinch, reports MLB.com.
"Roberto continues to be the veteran that he is," Hinch said. "He knows what his strengths and weaknesses are; he dials it up when he needs to. He's very trustworthy when it comes to what you're going to get with him."
Hernandez allowed one run on three hits in four innings of work on 49 pitches. Straily also allowed just one run, giving up two hits with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings.
"Straily, I thought, threw the ball pretty well, and the ball was coming out of his hands a little bit better than his last outing against Pittsburgh. He continues to utilize all his pitches. He fell behind a couple of those hitters and those are areas where it frustrates him a little bit, but he had outs and had a good inning."
