Roberto Hernandez Leaves Start With Ankle Injury

Cleveland Indians pitcher Roberto Hernandez left Monday's game in the third inning, due to an ankle injury.

Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, exited after pitching just two and one-third innings. It was just his third start of the season after visa issues and a three-week MLB suspension prevented him from joining the Indians sooner. Hernandez was suspended three weeks for age and identity fraud. The team also adjusted his contract following the scandal, reducing his 2012 salary and eliminating one of the remaining option years.

He allowed three runs and four hits before exiting Monday's game. He has now allowed 12 earned runs in 14.1 innings since returning to the Indians. Hernandez posted a 4.07 ERA in five minor-league rehab starts.
