4/22/2015 2:24:00 PM
Description: Indians manager Terry Francona admitted he took starter Carlos Carrasco out of Tuesday's game after just 60 pitches because Carrasco was "tight" according to cleveland.com.
Insight: Francona didn't say what body part was tight, but he did also say he might have overreacted in taking him out. Carrasco should make his next start, but fantasy owners should double check in the next couple of days just to make sure.

Insight: Carrasco is 1-1 this season with a 2.84 ERA and 0.947 WHIP. He's continued to produce at the top level he showed us last season and should be back in all fantasy lineups.
 
4/14/2015 7:32:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco was forced to leave Tuesday's game after being hit with a line drive in the face.
Insight: First off, we wish Carrasco the best and a speedy recovery. He had to be carted off after taking the drive in his left cheek. Zach McAllister took over. Stay tuned.

Description: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings in a minor league start on Tuesday according to MLB.com.
Insight: Carrasco yielded just one hit and no walks with 10 strikeouts, which is just what fantasy owners want to hear. His fastball was between 95 and 97 mph. He is a great value pick for the middle rounds.
 
9/27/2014 9:03:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco pitches well in loss Saturday.
Insight: He went 7 2/3 innings against Tampa Bay, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk, while striking out 10. Carrasco has been fantastic of late, and finishes 2014 at 8-7 with a 2.55 ERA. He will be a sleeper next season in fantasy drafts.
 
Hot9/7/2014 5:50:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco nearly pitched a complete game but settled for eight and 2/3 innings of shutout ball, scattering four hits, striking out eight and walking none to beat the White Sox on Sunday.
Insight: Carrasco has not allowed more than one earned run per start since Aug. 5. In his last six starts, Carrasco is 4-0 with an incredible 0.70 ERA in 38 and 2/3 innings. If he is somehow still available in your league, pick him up and ride out his hot streak.
 
Hot8/22/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco had his third straight terrific start Friday against Houston. He gave up one run on two hits and struck out eight in six innings.
Insight: Carrasco has allowed just seven hits and one run while posting a 17/2 K/BB over 18 innings in three starts since he joined the rotation. The 27-year-old has great stuff, but he's never been able to put it all together. Right now, he's dominating and needs to be added in most leagues.
 
8/16/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco has won both of his starts since he rejoined the rotation.
Insight: Carrasco has given up just five hits and walked none over 12 scoreless innings in the span. The right-hander has very good stuff, but he's never been able to put it together. He's worth a pickup in deep mixed leagues due to his upside.
 
8/10/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: In his return to the Indians' rotation, Carlos Carrasco held the Yankees scoreless on two hits, struck out four and didn't walk anyone in five innings.
Insight: Carrasco has great stuff, but he's never been able to put it together. He did put up a 2.30 ERA as a reliever this season, but his career ERA as a starter is 5.54 in 251 2/3 innings.
 
Cold4/29/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: The Indians have moved Carlos Carrasco to the bullpen, according to mlb.com.
Insight: He has a 6.95 ERA this season and is out of minor league options. We could see Trevor Bauer -- 1.40 ERA, 28/7 K/BB in 25 2/3 innings with Triple-A Columbus -- get his shot, though Josh Tomlin is also an option for Cleveland.
 
Cold4/20/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco has allowed four earned runs or more in all three starts this season. He gave up four on six hits with three walks in 5 2/3 innings Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: It's only a matter of time before the Indians give up on Carrasco and call up Trevor Bauer. Bauer has a 0.75 ERA and an 18/3 K/BB in 12 innings in the minors and allowed one run on four hits with eight strikeouts over six innings in a spot start for the Indians on April 9.
 
3/26/2014 11:33:00 AM
Description: Carlos Carrasco won the competition for the final spot in the Indians' rotation, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.
Insight: The 27-year-old Carrasco throws hard but has a 5.29 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 238 1/3 big league innings. He also has a 5.17 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP this spring, compared to 3.54 and 1.18 for Josh Tomlin. The Indians want to control Tomlin's innings after he had Tommy John surgery in August 2012, so he'll start out in Triple-A along with Trevor Bauer.
 
7/7/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: Cleveland righthander Carlos Carrasco was shipped back to Triple-A Columbus after Saturday's start against Detroit.
Insight: He's winless in six starts this season. Injuries to Brett Myers and Zach McAllister have forced the Indians to get creative with their starting rotation. Carrasco and Trevor Bauer have been bouncing around between Triple-A and the majors all year and they probably will be all season.

Description: Indians righthander Carlos Carrasco will make the start Saturday against the Tigers. SOURCE: Paul Hoynes, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: He's been bouncing between the majors and Triple-A all season. Until Carrasco (0-3, 8.17 ERA) can carve out a permanent role for himself in the Indians' rotation, he won't be a fantasy option.
 
6/28/2013 8:32:00 PM
Description: The Indians have called up starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco from Triple-A Columbus.
Insight: Carrasco will pitch in Game 2 of Friday night's doubleheader versus the White Sox. Trevor Bauer got lit up in the first game of the double dip (6 H, 5 ER in just 2/3 of an inning) so Terry Francona will be counting on Carrasco to pitch deep into the game.
 
6/23/2013 6:50:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco gave up three earned runs on six hits and walked four over 4 2/3 innings Sunday against the Twins.
Insight: Carrasco throws in the mid-90s, but he hasn't been able to put things together at the major league level. In 211 1/3 career innings over four seasons, Carrasco has a 5.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP.
 
6/17/2013 10:28:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco was dominant in his return from a suspension.
Insight: Carrasco almost cut his ERA in half Monday (15.26 to 8.40) by giving up one run in seven innings. The 90-pitch performance was Carrasco's longest outing of the season.
