by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Roberto Hernandez mashed by Blue Jays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Phillies veteran right-hander Roberto Hernandez was having a fine spring until Wednesday. He entered his start against Toronto with a 2.03 ERA and left it with a 5.29 ERA.

Hernandez was clobbered for seven earned runs and 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings. During one four-pitch stretch, he gave up a double, long sacrifice fly, mammoth home run to Jose Bautista and double.

That's what happens when a sinkerballer's sinkerball isn't sinking.


Roberto Hernandez tosses five shutout innings Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Phillies pitcher Roberto Hernandez tossed five shutout innings Thursday.

Roberto Hernandez throws three scoreless innings Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Phillies pitcher Roberto Hernandez allowed just one hit over three scoreless innings while striking out three in his team's 6-1 loss to the Rays Monday.

Hernandez struggled in his spring debut but delivered a quality performance Monday. "I worked in my last bullpen at keeping the ball down," he told MLB.com. "That's what I did. Keep the ball down. Don't overthrow. That's what I did and why I had everything working today."

Hernandez is expected to open the season in the rotation, an eventuality he can make a certainty with a few more performances like Monday's strong outing.


Roberto Hernandez serves up home run in spring debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Phillies starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez took to the mound for the first time this spring during the team's exhibition opener Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Hernandez made quick work of the first two batters before Jose Bautista launched a solo home to left field. Hernandez then gave up back-to-back doubles in the second inning, but escaped with allowing just one run in the frame.

''When I face him I try to throw changeups and sinkers down,'' Hernandez said of the home run to Bautista. ''But today I got down in the count and had to throw it down the middle. I missed up.''

The veteran right-handed hurler was charged with two runs on four hits in two innings. He didn't issue a walk or record a strikeout in a no-decision. The game was eventually called after 6 1/2 innings due to rain, with Toronto picking up the 4-3 win.


Phillies expect more from Roberto Hernandez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/19/2013) Just because Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. signed Roberto Hernandez as a "depth guy" for the "bottom of the rotation" doesn't mean he sees no room for improvement, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"He gave up a lot of home runs last year and we think thats atypical with what he does -- he's more of a ground-ball guy," Amaro said. "We think that he's going to be better than that, particularly, and in the National League his numbers are excellent."

Hernandez went 6-13 with a 4.89 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 6.7 strikeouts for nine innings in 32 appearances, including 24 starts, for the Rays last season. He allowed 1.4 home runs per nine innings, bringing his career rate to 0.9 per nine innings.

He's expected to occupy the fourth spot in the Phillies rotation, with Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Jonathan Pettibone competing for the fifth spot.


Phillies make Roberto Hernandez deal official


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/18/2013) The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Phillies have finalized their one-year, $4.5 million deal with starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez.

The two parties came to an agreement last Thursday.


Phillies add Roberto Hernandez to rotation mix


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/12/2013) The Phillies came to terms with right-hander Roberto Hernandez Thursdaay on a one-year, $4.5 million deal that includes another $1.5 million in incentives. Though general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. didn't confirm the deal, he said the team was close to signing a back-of-the-rotation type, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"It's more of a depth guy," Amaro said. "This is not someone who is going to slide into the top of the rotation. He's in the bottom of the rotation. But we need some depth. Again, we're trying to get the best bang for our buck. In this marketplace, it's tough because the prices have soared pretty significantly."

Hernandez will likely compete with Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and Jonathan Pettibone for the final two spots in the Phillies rotation. He went 6-13 with a 4.89 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings in 32 appearances, including 24 starts, for the Rays last season.

Roberto Hernandez picks up first career save


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Rays pitcher Roberto Hernandez picked up his first career save Tuesday night in Anaheim. Hernandez entered after Matt Moore went 5 1/3 and closed out the 7-1 win.

Hernandez was perfect over 3 2/3 innings as he earned the save. He struck out seven batters and threw 32 of his 42 pitches for strikes in an outstanding effort that lowered his ERA to 3.27.

Hernandez has been used as a starter for most of his career but may see more of a bullpen role down the stretch. He does not currently have his next start scheduled.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Hernandez limited the Angels to three runs in six innings of work, in his first quality start since the end of July.

He allowed a pair of singles before being pulled in the seventh, with both runners coming around to score.

He threw strikes. The ball was alive. I kind of liked it. It was a test run, and it looked good. He gets ready pretty fast. We know that in the future and can get him out there against the right guys."

Hernandez pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Friday's 7-2 win against the Yankees.
