Indians Vs. Angels Preview: Roberto Hernandez Returns To Indians

A Cleveland Indians pitcher will be making his debut on Wednesday night. Well, sort of. Roberto Hernandez is no stranger to the Cleveland Indians, it's just that in his first 181 appearances with the team, he appeared under the name Fausto Carmona. Hernandez will be making his first major league appearance after being arrested in January for falsifying his identity.

The Indians and manager Manny Acta are hoping to see a relaxed Hernandez on Tuesday night:

"I expect him to go out there and not try to do too much," Cleveland manager Manny Acta said. "I'm sure he's going to have some kind of butterflies, even if he's been out there a ton of times, but he's never been out there at this time of the year for his first outing."

Hernandez posted a 4.07 ERA with 20 strikeouts and four innings in 24.1 innings in the minors this season.

Game date/time: Wednesday, Aug., 15, 10:05 p.m. ET

Location: Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, Calif.
