|Carlos Carrasco fans six in three innings against Cubs |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Only a two-run homer marred a strong performance against the Cubs on Friday by Indians rotation hopeful Carlos Carrasco, who seems to have a leg up on the fifth spot.
Carrasco struck out six in three innings while yielding three hits and no walks. Both runs against him were unearned. He has yet to surrender an earned run in five innings this spring.
He is battling Josh Tomlin, Aaron Harang and Trevor Bauer, all of whom have been impressive. But Terry Francona is leaning toward Carrasco, who boasts impressive stuff and is without a minor league option.
|Carlos Carrasco allows one run vs. Rangers |

(3/3/14) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco surrendered one earned run on three hits and one walk in two innings while striking out one in Monday's 6-5 win over the Rangers.
"[He was] good," manager Terry Francona told MLB.com. "A couple hitters he fell behind and that’s where, when he works ahead, his stuff is [good]. Like today, his first inning was electric. He’s got the breaking ball and the changeup to go with it. He just needs to keep pumping it to where he works ahead. That’s where he’s going to have success."
Carrasco is competing for a spot at the back end of the team's rotation.
|Carlos Carrasco looks good in first spring action |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(2/27/14) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco put in a good first bid for a rotation spot in his spring training debut against the Reds Thursday.
Carrasco was the third Indians starter to work in the game, but looked like the best on this day. He tossed a pair of scoreless innings while returning the Reds in order. He struck out two batters in his relief outing.
Carrasco has been unable to live up to his top prospect ranking in parts of four major-league seasons. The soon-to-be 27-year-old posted a 6.75 ERA ion 46 2/3 innings a year ago.
|Indians hope Carlos Carrasco is able to 'take off' in 2014 |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/22/14) Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco has raised his arm slot to add deception to his delivery, according to MLB.com. Francona added the team would love to see Carrasco "take off" this season.
The former top-100 prospect is 11-19 with a 5.29 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 48 career MLB appearances (40 starts).
|Carlos Carrasco won't reach Super Two status |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/7/13) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco will not qualify for arbitration this winter, MLB.com reports Monday. Carrasco fell six days shy of earning his Super Two status. He will be arbitration-eligible for the first time following the 2014 season.
The 26-year-old Carrasco had a 6.75 ERA this season with a 30-to-18 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 46 2/3 innings.
|Carlos Carrasco looked to make a victorious comeback from 2011 Tommy John surgery last season, but having lost out to Scott Kazmir for the final spot in the Indians' rotation in spring training, he was a forgotten man for much of the year. Carrasco pitched mostly at Triple-A Columbus, where he compiled a 3.14 ERA over 71 2/3 innings, but he didn't carry over that success to his big league appearances. The one-time Phillies prospect struggled his way to a 1-4 record and 6.75 ERA with Cleveland, pitching in both starting and relief roles. This spring, Carrasco is the leading contender to win the Indians' final rotation spot, though MLB.com reports that Josh Tomlin and Trevor Bauer are likely to be in the mix as well. He hasn't had much success as a major leaguer, but he has fared well during his time in the Indians' minor league system. There is enough upside here to make a late-round gamble worthwhile in AL-only leagues.
