PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Phillies kept their aces and added another starter. Jeff Keppinger Jersey . A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday that right-hander Roberto Hernandez and Phillies agreed to a one-year contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an agreement has not been completed and the player must pass a physical. The 33-year-old Hernandez was formerly known as Fausto Carmona. He was arrested in January 2012 on charges of falsifying his identity that were later dropped. Major League Baseball suspended him for three weeks. Last year, he was 6-13 with a 4.89 ERA for Tampa Bay, and he is 59-82 with a 4.67 ERA over eight seasons overall, seven with the Cleveland Indians. Hernandez gives the Phillies depth on their staff. He is expected to compete for one of two spots in their rotation. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. made the move on the final day of baseballs winter meetings. The Phillies also selected right-hander Kevin Munson from Arizona in the Rule 5 draft. Among the top rumours earlier in the week were reports that Amaro was shopping Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels along with closer Jonathan Papelbon and All-Star outfielder Domonic Brown. Amaro and manager Ryne Sandberg shot down reports that Lee and Hamels were available. The Phillies are looking to rebound from their first losing season in 11 years and hope to make another post-season run. They signed veteran outfielder Marlon Byrd and re-signed catcher Carlos Ruiz. Both moves are indicative of a team thats trying to contend, not rebuild. Adding Hernandez also fits in that category. Hernandez has his best season with the Indians was in 2007 when he was 19-8 with a 3.06 ERA and finished fourth in AL Cy Young Award voting. He was 13-14 with a 3.77 ERA in 2010 and made the All-Star team. Lee, Hamels and Kyle Kendrick fill Philadelphias top three spots in the rotation. Hernandez, Cuban righty Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez and righties Ethan Martin and Jonathan Pettibone will compete for the final two. Custom Chicago White Sox Jerseys . - A mixed martial arts fighter who changed his name to War Machine was ordered Friday to stand trial in Nevada state court on 34 felony charges including attempted murder, sexual assault and kidnapping that could get him life in prison for allegedly attacking his porn star ex-girlfriend and her friend. Luke Appling Jersey .

Catch the game as the tail end of a doubleheader on TSN starting at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt. The Stars, who are in the postseason for the first time since 2008, dropped a pair of one-goal regulation losses against the top-seeded Ducks in Games 1 and 2. Anaheim recorded a 4-3 win in the opener at Honda Center and then notched a 3-2 decision in Fridays clash in Orange County. Mondays tilt marks the first home playoff game for the Stars since May 19, 2008, when Detroit posted a 4-1 win to win the Western Conference finals in six games. Dallas was 23-11-7 as the home team in 2013-14 and beat the Ducks, 6-3, on Nov. 26 in the lone meeting between the clubs this season in Big D.

Ryan Garbutt cut the deficit back to one for Dallas less than five minutes later, but that would be the final goal of the game.

Hours after he suffered the injury in the opener, Getzlaf was at his wifes side for the birth of the couples daughter, Willa. "Every once in a while, you need your best players to step it up when the rest of the guys lose their composure," said Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau. "Getzy, with whats happened to him in the last three days, to come in and get two points and a plus-3 rating, is a sure reason why hes hopefully nominated for the MVP." Corey Perry joined Getzlaf and Cogliano as the goal-scorers, snapping a 10- game postseason goal-scoring drought. It was Perrys first goal in the playoffs since scoring against Nashville on April 20, 2011. In addition to Garbutts goal, Alex Chiasson also scored for the Stars. Kari Lehtonen give up three goals on 19 shots in the loss. "Every game is important from here on out," said Garbutt. "If we take care of business at home, we are going to be fine." Anaheim played Friday without forward Matt Beleskey, who is dealing with a lower-body injury. Beleskey will travel with the team to Dallas, but is questionable for Game 3. Dallas defenseman Brenden Dillon has sat out the first two games with a lower- body issue and is not expected to play on Monday. This series marks the third all-time playoff meeting between these clubs and first since the Stars bested the Ducks in six games during the 2008 Western Conference quarterfinals.
