Cleveland Indians Throw Returning Roberto Hernandez Three Birthday Parties In One

If you've been following the Fausto Carmona situation for the Cleveland Indians, you know all the basics of the story by this point. The Indians starter was revealed to be using a fake name, and his real name of Roberto Hernandez Heredia and real age were revealed shortly afterward. After a bit of a mess with all of that, the Indians had just been waiting for Hernandez to finally return to the team.

On Monday, they finally got Hernandez back on the team after he got his visa though he will be suspended from playing for a couple of weeks.

That hasn't stopped the Indians from having a bit of fun while getting their starter back. In a bit of a tongue in cheek move, they wished him three separate happy birthdays on Monday, complete with three different cakes to go with it.

As said in the tweet, his actual birthday is in August, but where would the fun in waiting to celebrate it be if they were to wait all that time? As the expanded picture shows, each cake has a different age on it with the youngest having his fake name on it and the older two having his real name.
