    Ken Rowe also died a while ago, in November of last year, but like Hernandez, his death was not reported here. He was a 29-year-old rookie for the Dodgers in 1963, going 1-1 with a 2.93 ERA in his lone season with the squad.

    Ken Rowe, who played three seasons in the Major Leagues and worked in the Indians' player development system for more than two decades, died on Thursday. He was 78.

    A former middle reliever for the Dodgers and Orioles, Rowe spent the 2011 and '12 campaigns as an advisor working in Arizona with youngsters in the Indians' organization.
