The long nightmare that has been Robert Hernandez’ life over the last few months might be over. According to an ESPN report, the former Mr. Carmona has struck a deal.
Dominican Republic prosecutors say Cleveland Indians pitcher Roberto Hernandez has agreed to a deal to have false identity charges against him dropped in return for completing a work program in his Caribbean homeland.
What remains to be seen is exactly when that means Roberto Hernandez will be available to rejoin the Cleveland Indians. Still, this has got to be considered the first good news of the year for the Indians with regard to their one-time Cy Young vote getter.
