Roberto Hernandez wins final rotation spot for Rays

robertohernandez

The Tampa Bay Rays have awarded Roberto Hernandez the fifth and final spot in their rotation to start the season. Hernandez signed a $3.25 million contract with the team this offense which includes nearly $2 million in additional incentives.

Hernandez made just three starts last season while his identify as Fausto Carmona was exposed to be a fraud.

The now 32-year-old right handed Hernandez had a 5.33 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP this spring. He was awarded the rotation spot over Jeff Niemann.

Expectations should be low on Hernandez who has not had an ERA below 5 since 2010 and has only two of his seven big league seasons with a sub 5 ERA.
