The pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona won 19 games for the Cleveland Indians in 2007 and finished fourth in the Cy Young Award balloting. But Hernandez was never able to duplicate that success and is perhaps better known for his identity fraud case that caused him to miss most of the 2012 season.

The veteran right-hander signed a free agent deal with the Astros prior to the 2015 season. Hernandez appeared in 20 games for Houston, going 3-5 with a 4.36 ERA before being released in August.
