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. 


Indians SP Carlos Carrasco stymies Rangers bats on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) 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.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) 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
(5/17/2015) 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.

"I fell behind and fell behind," Carrasco said. "With that lineup, as soon as you have to start throwing strikes, they are going to hit you. That's what they did."

Carrasco threw 53 strikes in 91 pitches. His next start is scheduled for Friday, at home against Toronto. 


Indians' Francona says there is no concerns with Carlos Carrasco


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) 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.

Indians' Carlos Carrasco: I blacked out after taking line drive to the jaw


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"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."

Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (jaw) pushed back a day in rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco will start Monday against the White Sox instead of Sunday against the Twins after getting struck in the jaw Tuesday by a line drive, the team announced Wednesday. The Indians added Carrasco's jaw is sore on both sides.

"For everything that happened, I think it's miraculous," Francona said of Carrasco's condition, per MLB.com. "His jaw is sore on both sides, but he's in a good place.

"I do think there's a little swelling, but I'm glad there's not [anything more]. I think he thinks he's going to be just fine, which is more important than anything."

The Indians have not indicated who will start Sunday. 

Carrasco was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of Melky Cabrera in the first inning of Tuesday's game. He was lying face down in the dirt and motionless on the edge of the mound. Carrasco was on the ground for several minutes before he eventually was carted off the field.

Francona told reporters Tuesday that Carrasco was initially not very responsive when he was being evaluated, per the Associated Press. Carrasco was taken to the hospital, where X-rays came back negative. 


Indians' Carrasco carted off after taking a line drive to the face


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco was carted off the field after taking a line drive in the head off the bat of Melky Cabrera in the first inning, per the team's official website. Cabrera's line drive deflected off his wrist before it hit him near the jaw area.

Carrasco was helped off the ground and placed on the cart for further examination. Zach McAllister took over for Carrasco with no outs in the opening frame. He underwent X-rays and CT scans at the the Lutheran Medical Center, which revealed a bruised jaw and no symptoms of a concussion or a head injury.

"A line drive in that vicinity [near the head] is a scary moment," McAllister said, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "It really slows down on you. The ball is in slow motion. You can't make the play or get out of the way quick enough."

Carrasco is scheduled to start Sunday at Minnesota, but that remains to be seen. He'll likely be evaluated before the Indians make a decision on his status for Sunday's start.

"We have to check him in the morning and see how he's doing," manager Terry Francona said. "In the big picture, we dodged a really big bullet."

Indians' Carlos Carrasco underwent non-invasive heart surgery in 2014


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco underwent a non-invasive heart procedure last October, something the team didn't know about until after he signed his four-year extension, according to FOXSports.com.

Carrasco also dealt with palpitations during spring training, requiring more medication to regulate his heartbeat. Carrasco said he first felt it after the season ended and was really scared to go under the knife.

"I think it's safe to say that we were comfortable that he was getting the right medical treatment and he'd be fine," Indians manager Terry Francona to the Akron Beacon-Journal. "It's not like a sprained wrist, though. It's not something you mess around with. But I think everybody was comfortable knowing how it was taken care of and what he has to do. So it's not really an issue."
