Indians SP Carlos Carrasco pitches complete game in win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:33 am ET) Carlos Carrasco was dominant for the Indians on Thursday, pitching a complete-game two-hitter as Cleveland earned a 3-1 win over the Athletics. 

Carrasco allowed a first-inning RBI double, but that was just about it, as he wound up striking out seven hitters while walking just one. Carrasco only needed 103 pitches to spin his gem, using 14 ground-ball outs to power through the Oakland lineup. 

It is Carrasco's first complete game of the season and the fourth of his career. He improves to 11-8 on the season, fourth-most wins in the AL. 


Indians SP Carlos Carrasco no match for Sale on Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) 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
(7/23/2015) 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.


Report: Indians willing to trade pitcher Carlos Carrasco


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2015) The Indians are willing to listen to offers for pitcher Carlos Carrasco, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Carrasco is 10-7 with a 3.94 ERA in 19 starts this season. He signed a four-year, $22 million contract extension this spring.


Indians SP Carlos Carrasco looks good in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/19/2015) Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco was impressive during his start against the Reds on Sunday.

Carrasco allowed just one run on four hits in six innings of work. His command was crisp and regularly fooled batters, as he struck out six and allowed just one walk.

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


Indians announce rotation schedule following the All-Star break


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) The Indians have set their rotation to begin the second half of the season. Trevor Bauer will get the ball in the first game after the All-Star break, with Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco to wrap-up the road series with the Reds. Danny Salazar will take the mound in the series-opener against the Brewers on July 21, with Cody Anderson going on Wednesday, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group. 

Indians SP Carlos Carrasco has first no-decision of 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2015) The last time Indians starter Carlos Carrasco didn't experience the bitter or sweet fruits of his labor, it was around Labor Day. That is, in 2014.

Carrasco got a no-decision Saturday against Oakland for the first time in 23 starts. Not that he didn't deserve a win - he gave up just two runs on six hits in seven innings with one walk and seven strikeouts. But his bat-wielding teammates simply didn't come through.

A double, single and sacrifice fly in the first got him off on the wrong foot, but he then shut the Athletics out until an Ike Davis double scored another in the seventh.

Carrasco rebounded nicely from a miserable outing Monday, which came after his near-no hitter in his previous start. He lowered his ERA to 4.07 with his strong effort Saturday.


Indians' Carlos Carrasco has two-game win streak snapped


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco suffered his first loss since June 19, Monday against Houston. 

Carrasco dropped to 10-7 and had a two-game win streak snapped. He matched season highs with 10 hits and five runs allowed. He walked one and struck out five.


Indians' Carlos Carrasco nears no-hitter, gives up hit in ninth inning


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco didn't allow a hit for 8 2/3 innings, coming one out away from history. 

However, a base hit from Tampa Bay's Joey Butler ended the bid. Carrasco, of course, still came away with a victory in Cleveland's 8-1 win over the Rays. Carrasco allowed the run on the lone hit of the game. He walked two batters and struck out 13. 

"Everything was great," Carrasco said, via MLB.com. "Everyone played good. I had my teammates, my defense. You know what? It's most important that we won today. That's most important."

Carrasco had only walked one batter entering the ninth inning before walking Asdrubal Cabrera and hitting Brandon Guyer with a pitch. After getting Grady Sizemore and Kevin Kiermaier out, Carrasco gave up his only hit of the game to Butler. 

The 13 strikeouts are a season-high for Carrasco. 

Carrasco now has a 3.88 ERA this season. 


Indians SP Carlos Carrasco finally tames Tigers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) The Indians were desperate for a starter to shut down the Tigers, who have clawed their pitchers to pieces all season. They turned Wednesday to Carlos Carrasco, who finally tamed them.

Granted, merciful Brad Ausmus rested Cleveland killer Miguel Cabrera. But Carrasco performed well, allowing two runs on five hits in eight innings to improve his record to 9-6. He walked one and fanned seven.

Carrasco had a shutout going until J.D. Martinez blasted a two-run homer to the porch in left field in the seventh. He then allowed a single before retiring the next five batters in lowering his ERA to 4.16.

The right-hander broke a mini-slump in which he had allowed 11 runs on 24 hits over his last 16 1/3 innings covering three starts. He also avenged a battering by Detroit earlier in the year.


Carlos Carrasco gives up 10 hits in loss for Indians


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco matched a season high by allowing 10 hits in Friday's loss to Tampa. 

Carrasco dropped to 8-6 with the loss. He gave up three runs in 6 2/3 innings. He gave up two home runs, didn't walk a batter and struck out five. 

On a lot of nights, we're probably saying he pitched pretty well," manager Terry Francona said.

Carrasco's next start is Wednesday, against Detroit. 


Indians SP Carlos Carrasco earns eighth victory on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco was fortunate to walk away with a win on Saturday against the Tigers. Carrasco went 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. The right-hander walked one and struck out eight, improving his record to 8-5.

Carrasco was down early as he gave up three runs over the first four innings. But his offense was able to bail him out as they took the lead in the top of the sixth inning.

Carrasco will carry a 4.38 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Thursday at home against the Cubs.


Indians' Carlos Carrasco allows five runs in loss vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco took the loss on Sunday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and two walks in four-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Orioles.

"It kind of surprised me," Carrasco said, per MLB.com. "I thought he was going to take me out of the game or something. He asked me how my arm was feeling. I was feeling good. I was stretching my arm -- that was it. I was sitting there for maybe 10 minutes [between innings], but I'm fine."

Carrasco (7-5) has been on a run of three great starts coming into Sunday's matchup, but the Orioles were able to get on the board in the top of the first inning with a solo home run. Carrasco gave up three more runs in the fourth inning and was left in for the start of the fifth but surrendered a leadoff triple and was removed from the game.

"I didn't have my best stuff today," Carrasco said. "My fastball command, it was a little bit out of the zone. I had to use more sliders, so they saw that a lot, and that's why I gave up hits."

Carrasco has posted a 4.35 ERA and 77:17 K:BB ratio while recording a decision in each of his 12 starts. He's scheduled to face the Tigers in Detroit on Saturday.

Carrasco now has a 3.92 ERA for the season, which is the first time he's had it under 4.00 since April 26. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Orioles.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco strikes out nine in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) 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
(5/12/2015) 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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.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."
