Indians SP Carlos Carrasco no match for Sale on Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/25/15) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco needed to be great in his matchup against White Sox ace Chris Sale on Saturday. Instead, he was terrible.
The result was a no-doubt defeat. Carrasco allowed three runs before recording an out and finished with six runs allowed on seven hits in four innings. He walked two and fanned five.
He was greeted by four consecutive singles, including a two-run job by Jose Abreu. A double and two-run single by Tyler Flowers capped a disastrous first inning. Carrasco then settled down for a bit, striking out three in a row at one point, but his night was all but done when he yielded the first career home run to Carlos Sanchez in the fourth.
"He couldn't reel it in," Indians manager Terry Francona said of Carrasco, per MLB.com. "He had to work so hard every inning. It seemed like he had one clean inning. His pitch count was so high after four, I just thought it would do him some good [to remove him], rather than have him go back out and maybe labor through another inning."
Carrasco, who managed five quality starts in his previous six outings, hasn't recorded a victory since July 1 and now owns a 4.26 ERA on the year.
Report: Blue Jays seeking to land Indians SP Carlos Carrasco
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/23/15) The Indians have claimed that they will not part with any of their starting pitchers, but the Blue Jays have expressed interest in right-hander Carlos Carrasco, according to Yahoo Sports.
That interest was confirmed by Fox Sports MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal, who added that it would take "quite a haul" to land Carrasco.
The 28-year-old Carrasco has proven inconsistent this season, following strong starts with poor ones. The result is a mediocre 3.94 ERA to go along with a 10-7 record.
But Carrasco has 128 strikeouts in just 114 1/3 innings and is under team control through 2020 with two club options and no annual salary above $9.5 million, which will make him tough for the frugal Indians to trade.

Carrasco, who received a no-decision, is 10-7 on the year with a 3.94 ERA in 114 1/3 innings this season.

|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.
