Indians Sign Roberto Hernandez, Aaron Fultz

The Tribe signed a pair of relievers today, Roberto Hernandez and Aaron Fultz.

Hernandez turned 42 last month.  He posted a 2.93 ERA last year, but the 1.63 WHIP and 1.38 K/BB ratio are less than inspiring. 

Fultz, a southpaw, turned 33 in September.  After posting a sparkling 2.24 ERA in 2005, he regressed to a 4.54 mark this year.  Fultz’s control slipped a bit, but the main difference was his hits per nine innings moving from a miniscule 5.9 to a batting practice-like 10.1.  I suppose we could partially blame his BABIP shooting from .212 to .349.
