Cleveland, OH -- Indians pitcher Roberto Hernandez -- formerly known as Fausto Carmona -- has reportedly received his U.S. visa and will serve a subsequent three-week suspension before being eligible to return to the major leagues.
According to the Plain Dealer, Hernandez, who has not been allowed in the country after his real identity was discovered last offseason, will arrive in Cleveland on Saturday night.
He will apparently meet with reporters on Sunday to discuss his situation.
Hernandez, 31, who was found to be three years older than originally thought, has been a mainstay in the Indians' rotation for each of the last five years. In 32 starts last season, Hernandez went 7-15 with a 5.25 earned run average.
His career record is 53-66 with a 4.59 ERA. It's unclear what role he'll play once he's eligible to return on August 11.
