Breaking News: Fausto is NOT Fausto?

By: Matthew Van Wormer

The man who the Cleveland Indians thought was Fausto Carmona has been arrested in the Dominican Republic and is being charged with using a false identity.

Carmona was arrested in the Dominican after leaving a consulate to renew his visa. He is not who he says he is. His real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia.

So there you have it.  Less than a month away from Spring Training and it looks like the Indians are going to have to find someone to take Carmona’s/Heredia’s spot in the rotation.  Stay up to date with Did The Tribe Win Last Night for more updates as they become available.
