Carlos Carrasco goes the distance Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco went the distance Wednesday against the Astros.

Carrasco allowed just two hits over nine scoreless innings. He struck out 12 and walked one during the outing. Carrasco got off to an exceptional start. He put his first batter on base in the third inning via the walk, but didn’t allow a hit until the bottom of the fourth inning. He would give up his only other hit in the ninth. After a two-out single by Jose Altuve, Carrasco was able to drop a three-pitch strikeout against Dexter Fowler to end the game. Carrasco threw just 98 pitches during the outing.

With the win, Carrasco improved to 8-5. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/7/2014) Carlos Carrasco has been dominant for the Indians ever since he entered their rotation just under a month ago, and he took his performance to new heights on Sunday.

Carlos Carrasco turns in strong start despite being hittable


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Carrasco allowed one run on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out 10 and walked one during the outing. Carrasco gave up his only run of the game in the second inning. After the first three batters singled to load the bases, Carrasco walked in a run. He managed to pitch out of trouble, striking out two and getting a ground out to escape the inning. 

Despite giving up just one run, Carrasco often found himself working in and out of jams. Carrasco did give up 10 hits, but was able to pitch around base-runners all game. He put at least two runners in on the third, fourth and fifth innings, but managed to pitch out of it. 

Carrasco picked up the no-decision for his efforts. He’ll take on the White Sox in his next start.

With the win, Carrasco improved to 6-4. He’ll take on the Tigers in his next start.

Carlos Carrasco on the verge of breakthrough?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/18/2014) Way back in 2011, I liked Carlos Carrasco as a sleeper in Fantasy. He was arguably the top player to come over from the Phillies in the Cliff Lee deal and had just put together a 3.83 ERA over seven starts as a September callup the year before.

Back then, he averaged more than 93 mph on his fastball, according to BrooksBaseball.net, which is impressive in its own right. But in Saturday's start against the Orioles, he averaged 97.1.

That's Yordano Ventura-type stuff, which is as good as it gets among starting pitchers.

Granted, velocity isn't everything, but a pitcher who consistently throws strikes with that kind of stuff will go a long way in this game. In two starts since rejoining the starting rotation, Carrasco has issued zero walks in 12 innings.

He's healthy for once and still has room to grow at age 27. And I need only point to Jake Arrieta as an example of a pitcher who figured it out later in his career. If you've already missed out Mike Fiers in your league, I'd say Carrasco is worth a flier.


Carlos Carrasco tosses strong start against Baltimore


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco tossed a great start against the Orioles Saturday.

Carrasco allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings of work. He struck out five and did not issue any walks. Carrasco gave up a leadoff single to open the game, but was able to pitch around it. All three of his hits came against the leadoff hitter in the first three innings. Despite those issues, Carrasco was able to get through the first three innings unscathed. He added an additional four scoreless innings before he was removed from the game.

With the win, Carrasco improved to 5-4. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start. 


Carlos Carrasco remains in rotation; will start Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco will remain in the rotation moving forward, after shining in his start against the Yankees Sunday.  

Carrasco, who tossed five scoreless innings in his last outing, will start Saturday's game against the Orioles. Carrasco was considered a candidate to be skipped due to the team having two off days this week, but will be kept on turn. 


Carlos Carrasco outstanding in return to rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco tossed five scoreless innings in his return to the rotation Sunday, leading Cleveland to a 4-1 win against the Yankees. He allowed two hits and no walks, while striking out four.

Carrasco (4-4) allowed just two singles and retired the last 11 batters he faced. He made his first start Sunday since being banished to the bullpen in late April. He had gone 0-12 in his previous 17 starts since 2011, according to The Associated Press.

''When you play the Yankees, you feel it in your body,'' Carrasco said. ''You want to throw a shutout.''

The Indians have two off days this week, which means Carrasco might be skipped in the rotation.


Carlos Carrasco set to start Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco will earn a start on Sunday against the Yankees, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The move could be temporary, since the Indians have two off days next week. Carrasco has made four starts this season. He owns a 3.88 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP over 65 innings of work.

Indians might be forced to return Carlos Carrasco to rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Indians used right-hander Carlos Carrasco in relief of scuffling starter Josh Tomlin on Tuesday night against Cincinnati. The former could replace the latter in the rotation going forward, beginning Sunday against the host Yankees.

Tomlin has been a mess since tossing a complete-game one-hitter in Seattle. He has yielded 21 earned runs on 39 hits, including seven home runs, in 26 2/3 innings. His ERA has soared from 3.78 to 4.75 during that stretch.

Carrasco struggled worse than Tomlin as a starter, but the Indians could be forced based on the lack of an alternative to return him to a starting role. He has thrived out of the bullpen, yielding 11 runs in 42 1/3 innings.


Carlos Carrasco earns win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco picked up a win in his second straight outing Saturday, striking out one in a scoreless eighth inning in his team's 5-2 win over the Tigers in Game 2 of the day's doubleheader.

Carrasco (3-3) has racked up six scoreless innings in July, and he's given up just two earned runs in 24 innings since May 21. Carrasco owns a 3.67 ERA and 55:15 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings.


Carlos Carrasco picks up relief win Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco picked up a relief win Thursday night at home against the Yankees.

Carrasco struck out one and needed only seven pitches to secure a perfect seventh inning for the Indians. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 55 1/3 innings of relief this season.

Carlos Carrasco earns first career save Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco picked up the first save of his career Monday, giving up just one hit and one walk in 2 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 4-3 win over the Angels.

Carrasco has done a great job over the past month while generally pitching more than one inning at a time. His current quality stretch leaves him with a 4.40 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45:14 K:BB ratio in 45 innings.


Carlos Carrasco trying to accept loss of starting job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Carlos Carrasco expressed surprise and disappointment at his removal from the Indians starting rotation despite overwhelming statistical evidence that justified the move. Carrasco is 0-3 with a 6.95 ERA in four starts and has not won a game as a starting pitcher since 2011.

Carrasco, however, is trying to take the news in stride. "The more important thing is I'm going to continue to pitch," he told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "Wherever they put me, I'm going to do my job. ... I'll just forget [starting] and do my job in the bullpen."

The right-hander has proven himself far more effective as a reliever, at least in limited opportunities. He won his only decision in that role last year with a 1.32 ERA.


Carlos Carrasco removed from starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco was removed from the rotation, manager Terry Francona told reporters following Monday's 6-3 loss to the Angels, MLB.com reports.

Carrasco allowed four-plus runs in each of his first four starts. He owns a 6.95 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP along with a 23:9 K:BB ratio over 22 innings pitched.

Carlos Carrasco meets with team over mechanics concerns


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco met with manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Mickey Callaway to address his concerns about his mechanics.

Carrasco worked with Callaway on raising his lead arm in his delivery to create more deception during the offseason. He picked up his third loss on Friday, allowing four runs over six innings pitched against the Giants. He felt as if his velocity went down with the raised slot and gained more velocity when he lowered his left arm.

Callaway showed Carrasco statistical data to support the raised slot.

"We talked to him this morning about it after reading his comments," Callaway said. "I think we're all on the same page on where we want his arm. We want it up. He's throwing harder when his arm is up. It just doesn't feel like it."

Indians not ready to remove Carlos Carrasco out of rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday was not a make-or-break start for pitcher Carlos Carrasco, and that he's not ready to make any decisions based on one start or game, WTAM 1100 radio in Cleveland reports.

Carrasco is off to a rough start this season. He owns a 7.31 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP along with a 17:8 K:BB ratio over 16 innings pitched. His next start will come against the Giants.

Carlos Carrasco has another rough start Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco struggled again Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Carrasco went 5 2/3 innings, giving up four runs on six hits. He walked three and struck out five. Carrasco has now allowed at least four runs in each of his first three starts to open the season. 

Carrasco cruised through the first three innings before running into trouble in the fourth. He gave up three hits to open the inning, including a run scoring single. After striking out Edwin Encarnacion, Carrasco gave up another run scoring single, and an RBI groundout. He gave up the fourth run on a single the following inning. The team managed to come back and win the game, but Carrasco did not factor into the decision.

Carrasco's next start will come against the Giants.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
