Remember This Guy?

Hat tip to Sternfan for bringing this to my attention.

Another former Astro under Gerry Hunsicker is now in the Rays minor league system. First it was Hector Gimenez who is attempting to find his once promising days sidelined by injuries and now....Carlos Hernandez. You may recall Hernandez season with the Astros in 2001 when he made 21 starts and threw over 100 innings. Well apparently the southpaw has had some shoulder issues, and after missing 2007 signed with the Rays. He's thrown 20 dominating innings for Vero Beach and as a 28 year old may find himself with Montgomery or Durham to begin next season.

I'm not going to expect him to ever reach the majors with us, but I found it interesting none the less.
