Pedro Hernandez Makes MLB Debut

2010 Fort Wayne TinCaps pitcher, Pedro Hernandez was roughed up in his Major League Baseball debut last night with the Chicago White Sox. Hernandez becomes the 110th former Fort Wayne player to appear in a major league game.

Hernandez, 23, pitched in 29 games with the TinCaps in 2010, working to a 4-3 record and a 4.04 ERA. In 100 1/3 innings, he struck out 79 and walked 17. He made 13 starts, going 3-0 in those outings.

The Venezuelan-born Hernandez began his career with the Padres in 2007 and was traded, along with the author of the only no-hitter in Fort Wayne franchise history, Simon Castro, to the White Sox this off-season.

In his debut Wednesday night, Hernandez pitched four innings against the Boston Red Sox. He gave up eight run on 12 hits, while walking one and striking out two.

Following the game, he was optioned back to Triple-A Charlotte.
