Cleveland Indians Reactions: Fausto Carmona Arrested for Using False Identity

As you've probably heard by now, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Fausto Carmona was arrested in the Dominican Republic for using a false identity. It was revealed that he's actually 31 years old, not 28, and his real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia. Let's take a look at some of the reactions from around the web...

  • Fausto Carmona - Roberto Hernandez Heredia - 31, Not 28 - Baseball Nation
    "Obviously, that damages his stock as a pitcher. 28 is still young enough to make adjustments. By 31, pitchers usually aren't getting better. The Indians hold a $9 million club option for 2013 that they're now more likely to decline than they used to be."

  • It's pronounced "Lajaway" | Well, That Could Put a Dent in the Starting Rotation
    "Now in addition to finding additional offense, the Indians need to decide if they want to try and add another starter, or if they want to head to camp with internal options competing for the fifth spot. "
