ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired right-hander Roberto Hernandez from the Philadelphia Phillies in a trade for two players to be named later or cash considerations.

The clubs announced the deal Thursday.

The 33-year-old Hernandez is 6-8 with a 3.87 ERA in his first season with the Phillies, who signed him to a one-year, $4.5 million deal last December. He spent last year with Tampa Bay and his first seven major league seasons with Cleveland.

Hernandez was known as Fausto Carmona for his first six big-league seasons. The Dominican Republic native missed most of the 2012 season after getting arrested on charges of falsifying his identity to obtain a visa.

Hernandez has been a starter for most of his career, but might begin in the bullpen for the NL-leading Dodgers.
