He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. Hernandez allowed three runs over 5 2/3 frames in a spot start for the Rockies last week.

Rockies designated LHP Pedro Hernandez for assignment.

Well, that was fast. Hernandez was called up on Thursday, giving up three runs in 5 2/3 innings in a loss against the Cubs. Colorado wanted to add an additional position player on the roster, so Hernandez got the boot. It would be shocking if he was claimed on waivers.

Pedro Hernandez took a loss in his Rockies debut after giving up three runs in 5 2/3 innings Thursday against the Cubs.

Hernandez was last seen in the majors amassing a 6.83 ERA in 12 starts and two relief appearances with the Twins last year. He's not a fantasy option.

Rockies purchased the contract of LHP Pedro Hernandez from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Hernandez will start for the Rockies on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs. The 25-year-old lefty has an ugly 6.14 ERA this season at Triple-A and is obviously a poor fantasy play, even against light-hitting Chicago.

The Rockies will recall LHP Pedro Hernandez to start Thursday's game against the Cubs, according to's Thomas Harding.

Hernandez has a 6.14 ERA with Triple-A Colorado Springs this season. The 25-year-old made 12 starts with the Twins last season, compiling a 6.83 ERA.

Pedro Hernandez is an option to be called up to start on Saturday for the Rockies.

He would be taking the rotation spot of Juan Nicasio, who was optioned to Triple-A Monday. With an off day Thursday, the club has the option of skipping Nicasio's turn, but manager Walt Weiss wants to give his other starters some extra rest. Hernandez holds a 5.92 ERA at Triple-A Colorado Springs this season but does have some big league experience.

Rockies reassigned LHP Pedro Hernandez, LHP Yohan Flande, RHP Josh Sullivan, C Dustin Garneau and C Tom Murphy to minor league camp.

There are no real surprises here, though Hernandez could've made a push to be a long-man in the bullpen with a strong showing in the spring.

Rockies signed LHP Pedro Hernandez to a minor league contract.

He'll be given an invitation to spring training. Hernandez was removed from the Twins' 40-man roster last month after posting a 6.83 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings in 2013, but it didn't take him long to find another gig. He'll likely begin next season at Triple-A.

Twins sent LHP Pedro Hernandez outright to Triple-A Rochester.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Hernandez posted an ugly 6.83 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings with the Twins this season.

Pedro Hernandez was hammered for six runs over 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Indians on Friday.

This was his third start this season where he has lasted two innings or less. Mind you, he has only made 12 starts. Hernandez will finish the year with a 6.83 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings and is unlikely to find himself getting another chance in the rotation in 2014.

Pedro Hernandez was shelled for six runs in two innings Saturday in the Twins' loss to the A's.

Hernandez didn't have a prayer against the American League West-leading Athletics. He yielded eight hits and a walk, and didn't make it past 52 pitches. The 24-year-old lefty has a 6.05 ERA and 1.73 WHIP this season.

Pedro Hernandez allowed two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old lefty was the latest to get the Astros' starmaker treatment, as he gave up just six hits while walking none in the outing. The only thing keeping him from his fourth win was a particularly bad blown save for Twins closer Glen Perkins. Hernandez pitched well enough that he likely earned himself another turn in the rotation, with his turn coming up again Monday against the Angels.

Pedro Hernandez is active and available in the Twins' bullpen for Friday's game against the Rangers.

He's also the leading candidate to start for the Twins on Tuesday in place of Samuel Deduno. Hernandez has struggled with the Twins in 37 1/3 innings this year, compiling a 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP, and shouldn't be a consideration in any fantasy format.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 07:59:00 PM

Twins recalled LHP Pedro Hernandez from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll presumably slide into the rotation spot vacated by Samuel Deduno (shoulder). Hernandez holds a 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 37 1/3 big league innings this season.
