As you may remember, Cleveland Indians pitcher Fausto Carmona, 28, was discovered to be, well, not Fausto Carmona, 28. Really, he’s Roberto Hernandez Heredia, 31. After being arrested for using a fake identity by Dominican police, Hernandez will serve a three-week suspension handed down by MLB. On the bright side, he now has a U.S. visa.
His Cleveland Indians teammates didn’t pass up the opportunity to troll, however, and decided to make up for lost time by presenting Hernandez/Carmona with three birthday cakes when he returned to the team today.
Hernandez/Carmona allegedly turns 32 on August 20th, nine days after he’s eligible to play again. MLB officials have been put on notice that Carmona/Hernandez is preparing to skip the last three days of his suspension.
