Diamondbacks Acquire Livan Hernandez

Looks like someone got some faulty info about Livan Hernandez being pulled back from waivers; Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks have acquired the 31 year-old righty.  The Nats received Double A pitchers Matt Chico and Garrett Mock.  Chico has had more success with Tennessee so far.  Neither pitcher is on the 40-man roster, making it easier to get the deal done.


Hernandez is set to earn $8MM this season and $7MM in 2007.  While his strikeout rate has remained steady from last year, his hit and home run rates have spiked.  To his credit, his two August starts have been excellent.  The D'Backs are middle-of-the-pack as far as starting pitching and are just two games back in the West.  They're only one game behind the Reds in the wild card.

Hernandez has 56 innings worth of playoff experience from his time with the Marlins and Giants.  He was the NLCS MVP with the Marlins after winning two games.
