Indians' Francona says there is no concerns with Carlos Carrasco
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco checked out fine Wednesday after being limited to 60 pitches Tuesday against the White Sox because he was experiencing general tightness in the cold weather, per MLB.com.
"It was maybe the first three or four [pitches] every inning," manager Terry Francona said. "He was just tight. It was kind of ambiguous.
"He came in [Wednesday] morning and said he felt really good. [Pitching coach] Mickey [Callaway] and me will go out and watch him throw, but I don't think that [trainer] James [Quinlan] thinks there's anything. Maybe I overreacted. If that's the case, that's one thing I won't apologize for."
Carrasco is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Tigers.

|(4/21/15) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco (2-1) struck out eight batters in five innings on Tuesday and took the win against the White Sox.|
The lone run he allowed was a first-inning solo shot from Jose Abreu.
"I felt a little bit tight, so they took me out," Carrasco said. "I missed a week or something like that, so they wanted to take care of it and they did the right move."
"I thought he pitched really well," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "I thought he used his off speed especially well tonight."
Carrasco returns to the hill on Sunday in Detroit.

Indians' Carlos Carrasco: I blacked out after taking line drive to the jaw
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco doesn't recall being hit by Melky Cabrera's line drive Tuesday night -- an injury that sent him to the hospital for X-rays and a CT scan, according tothe Associated Press.
"I remember James came to me and started talking," Carrasco said. "That's the part I remember. When I got hit, I saw everything blurry and I blacked out."
Carrasco, who signed a $22 million, four-year contract last week, told reporters he watched the replay of the incident once on Wednesday, and has no plans to watch it again.
"It's part of the game," Carrasco said Wednesday. "I got a scare, but everything came out OK."
Carrasco is dealing with soreness in both sides of his jaw. He will have his start pushed to Monday against the White Sox instead of Sunday against the Twins after the incident.
"It's already behind me. I'm getting ready for my next start," Carrasco said.

Carlos Carrasco: Fantasy update

Adam Lind and Carlos Gonzalez were among the Wednesday winners. Heath Cummings rolls with lineup plays like bargain Kendall Graveman for a split Thursday.
|2014 summary: Carlos Carrasco's season started off looking like another blown opportunity to realize his considerable potential. He made the Indians' rotation out of spring training, but was demoted to the bullpen before the end of April as a result of a 6.95 ERA after four starts. Carrasco proceeded to dominate in a relief role for half the season, so he got yet another crack at the rotation. This time, Carrasco stuck in the role, as he went 5-3 with a 1.30 ERA and 0.81 WHIP in 10 starts down the stretch. In employing his slider more often, Carrasco was able to get swinging strikes on 15 percent of his pitches over that span, striking out 78 batters in 69 innings.|
Playing time status: Carrasco will claim a rotation spot to begin the season, and with his Tommy John surgery more than three years behind him, innings should not be a concern.
2015 outlook: Though drafting Carrasco as a top 30 starting pitcher requires owners to place their faith on stats from 10 starts and an extended trial in the bullpen, he was overpowering to a degree where that trust would not be misplaced. He is also relief-eligible, so Carrasco can be targeted even earlier in Head-to-Head leagues.
