Indians SP Carlos Carrasco stymies Rangers bats on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco was dominant in Wednesday's win over the Rangers. Carrasco threw eight solid innings, allowing just one run on five hits. He walked one and struck out eight, throwing 70 of his 105 pitches for strikes.
The only blemish on Carrasco's day was a solo home run from Robinson Chirinos in the fifth inning. Otherwise, he silenced the Rangers' offense and cruised to his sixth win of the season.
Carrasco (6-4) lowered his ERA to 4.24 on the season, and he's schedule to make his next start Tuesday in Kansas City.
Indians SP Carlos Carrasco fans seven in Friday's win
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco allowed two runs on four hits over six innings of work during Friday's 7-3 win over the Reds.
"He didn't have his fastball command, but the other pitches he threw for strikes," Indians catcher Roberto Perez said, per MLB.com. "His changeup was a lot better today and he threw the ball well."
Carrasco stuck out seven batters and walked two during the outing to earn his fifth win of the season. The win broke a two-game losing streak for Carrasco.
Carrasco has now tossed at least six innings in five-consecutive starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Rangers.
Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco strikes out nine in losing effort
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco allowed five runs on seven hits in eight innings of work in Cleveland's 5-1 loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Carrasco, who struck out nine with two walks, had trouble in the second inning when he allowed an RBI double to Mitch Moreland. Then after allowing another run in the third, Carrasco gave up a solo shot to Moreland in the sixth.
"That changed the game," Carrasco said to MLB.com. "He got me on the home run. I missed that spot. It was just a bad pitch."
Carrasco, now 4-4, moved his ERA to 4.98 in 43 1/3 innings of work. He will look to bounce back Friday against the Reds.
"He pitched a complete game, which we really needed," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He made a couple mistakes basically to Moreland that really cost us the runs. … The two-run homer to Moreland hurt."
Indians' Carlos Carrasco gives up 10 hits in loss
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco dropped to 4-3 on the season after giving up four runs on 10 hits in a loss to St. Louis.
Carrasco didn't walk a batter and struck out seven. Carrasco threw 104 pitches, 73 strikes.
"I think he pitched better than his line showed," manager Terry Francona said, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group. All the runs against Carlos came with two outs and I think two strikes. Mark Reynolds went down and got a ball that he probably could only do what he did with it – punch it into right field.
"I think they only hit a couple balls – Jhonny Peralta hit one fairly deep to right – that were really driven. Matt Holliday is a big strong kid who stays on the ball and he fought one off to right (center) field. Some of it is their guys with a real good approach."
His next start is scheduled for Sunday, at Texas.

Carlos Carrasco: Fantasy update
Heath Cummings was impressed with Carlos Carrasco's first start, but is the Cleveland hurler an automatic must-start?
First Pitch: Early games create some issues
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.
