Braves’ Livan Hernandez Will Have Wages Garnished

MLB

Atlanta Braves pitcher, Livan Hernandez, has been ordered by Miami-Dade Circuit Court to have his wages garnished, according to The Washington Times.

Hernandez owes SunTrust Bank $469,387.22 from a line of credit and a promissory note, according to a summary judgment entered against him in October.

Prior to this garnishment the court also ordered Hernandez’s wages to be garnished when he was playing for the Washington Nationals. However, court orders were not followed due to Hernandez’s free agent status during the first order with the Nationals, and subsequently being cut during spring training on a minor league contract with the Houston Astros.

Hernandez has a $750,000 deal with the Braves, which will be drastically affected by the court’s garnishment. This season he has recorded a 4.76 ERA in three appearances.
