According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa Bay Rays re close to a deal with free agent reliever Roberto Hernandez. The pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona allowed 15 runs in 14 2/3 innings spread across three late-season starts for the Indians this year after missing most of the season with visa issues stemming from his identity fraud case.
Hernandez owns a 5.06 ERA since finishing fourth in the 2007 AL Cy Young voting, which is the second worst mark in baseball behind Luke Hochevar (min. 600 IP).
The Rays have not confirmed the report to 620WDAE.
