Roberto Hernandez was tagged for five runs in four innings Thursday in a loss to the Brewers.

Hernandez gave up three homers in his second start for the Braves. He'll continue to fill in for now, but ideally, the Braves will have younger pitchers as options in September.

Roberto Hernandez allowed three runs over five innings in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Making his Braves debut, Hernandez gave up six hits and a walk while striking out four. The 35-year-old wasn't performing all that well in the minors before his promotion, so his success was likely a fluke and almost certainly fleeting. His next test will come Thursday in the form of the Brewers.

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Roberto Hernandez from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona will debut for the Braves on Saturday against the Cardinals. He was knocked around in three starts at Triple-A Gwinnett after being cut loose by the Blue Jays, so it's hard to envision him having much success on Saturday.

Roberto Hernandez was tagged for six runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Friday.

Hernandez gave up a five-spot in the third inning, highlighted by home runs from Jose Reyes and Jose Bautista. All told, he allowed nine hits and two walks while also hitting a batter. He struck out just one of the 26 batters he faced on the night. The veteran right-hander owns a 5.32 ERA through 11 starts this season and the Astros figure to be on the market for an upgrade.

Roberto Hernandez allowed five runs (four earned) over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Given that Hernandez allowed seven runs to the Tigers in his last start, five runs counts as improvement. He struck out two and walked one while serving up eight hits in the contest. Hernandez had been a steady performer in the Astros' rotation, but these last two starts are concerning. He now holds a 4.92 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 30/18 K/BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings. A road start against the Blue Jays is up next for Hernandez.
