05:40 AM ET 12.04 | The market is starting to develop for Roberto Hernandez. Who? Hernandez, the pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona , is seeking a one-year deal and has garnered interest from at least five teams, including the Indians, his former club, according to an industry source. Hernandez, 31, has two offers on the table and is mulling his options. He does not have any interest in pitching out of the bullpen. The right-handed pitcher was arrested in January in the Dominican Republic on charges of using a false name and legal issues kept him from obtaining a visa and entering the United States for several months. The charges were eventually dropped and the one-time All-Star became eligible to pitch for the Indians on Aug. 11. However, he made only three starts and was slowed by an ankle injury.

This is really confusing because I think the ChiSox had a pitcher named Roberto Hernandez...can't he just legally change his name to Fausto Carmona, or maybe Flash Brown?

Or "The Pitcher Formerly Known As Fausto Carmona"
