PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Phillies kept their aces and added another starter.
A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday that right-hander Roberto Hernandez and Phillies agreed to a one-year contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an agreement has not been completed and the player must pass a physical.
The 33-year-old Hernandez was formerly known as Fausto Carmona. He was arrested in January 2012 on charges of falsifying his identity that were later dropped. Major League Baseball suspended him for three weeks.
