Rich Lowry Is Actually “Fausto Carmona”

Eh, that’s not true. However, Fausto Carmona apparently is not “Fausto Carmona.” According to Dominican authorities, the Indians pitcher known until recently as Carmona was “charged with using a false identity, according to broadcaster Yancen Pujols.”

Col. Maximo Baez Aybar, a police official, confirmed the arrest and tweeted that the pitcher’s real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia. He also tweeted that he is not 28 years old, he is in fact 31.
