Roberto Hernandez has celebrated three birthdays since last pitching to catcher Luke Carlin. I’m pretty sure Carlin has celebrated one birthday in that time. In any case, Columbus skipper Mike Sarbaugh had Carlin backstopping the Clippers when Hernandez made a rehab start for the team.
After the game, Carlin addressed Hernandez’s five innings of work. He also talked how Hernandez is handling his return following revelations that he concealed his actual name (and age) when he first entered major league baseball…Apparently, he’s doing so by relying on his sense of humor.
