RHP Roberto Hernandez finalized a one-year, $4.5 contract with the Phillies on Dec. 18. The 33-year-old veteran, who previously pitched under the name Fausto Carmona during his career, was 6-13 with a 4.89 ERA in 32 games (24 starts) with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2013. Hernandez ranked seven in baseball last season with a 1.24 groundball-to-flyball ratio. He joins a rotation with LHP Cole Hamels, LHP Cliff Lee, RHP Kyle Kendrick and Cuban rookie RHP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, with second-year RHP Jonathan Pettibone in the mix, too.
