Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 Tigers while allowing two runs over seven innings in a win Friday.

It was a strange line for the 30-year-old, who wasn't spotless -- he gave up nine hits and a walk to go with his 11 strikeouts. Still, when you punch out that many, you've got some things working. The win, his fifth in a row heading into the break, improved Carrasco to 10-3 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 114/27 K/BB ratio over 104 2/3 innings overall this year.
Jul 7 - 11:13 PM

Carrasco threw 75 of his 114 pitches for strikes, pushing his record to 9-3 while dropping his ERA slightly from 3.67 to 3.50. He is without a loss over his past five outings, winning four times and he has struck out seven or more batters in each of his past four starts. His next scheduled start will be a rematch with the Tigers on Friday at Progressive Field.
Jul 2 - 2:08 AM

Carlos Carrasco was rocked for eight runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Monday's win over the Rangers.

Carrasco struggled from the start, coughing up a three-run homer to Adrian Beltre in a four-run first and surrendering yet another three-run shot in the second inning, that one to Elvis Andrus. Joey Gallo would put a cap on this sad outing with a solo home run in the fourth. Carrasco had entered Monday on a nice three-start run, having allowed just three runs in his last 17 2/3 innings. He will try to get back on that track when he brings his 3.67 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 96/25 K/BB ratio (90 2/3 innings) into a road showdown with the Tigers in his next scheduled outing.
Jun 26 - 10:52 PM

Carlos Carrasco punched out 10 batters while firing six shutout innings to lead his team to a 5-1 win over the Orioles on Wednesday.

He gave up seven hits without walking a batter and reached double figures in strikeouts for the first time this year. All of the hits he allowed were singles. Carrasco moves to 8-3 with a very nice 2.99 ERA and stellar 1.02 WHIP after 14 starts. He has 89 strikeouts and 22 walks in 87 1/3 innings. His fantasy owners are looking forward to his two-start week coming up.

He has won five of his past six decisions, but this was just his second quality start over the past six outings dating back to May 9.

Jun 17 - 2:33 AM

For the season as a whole, Carrasco is pitching to a 3.36 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 72/19 K/BB ratio across 75 innings. A road showdown with the Twins shows next on his schedule.
Jun 11 - 6:09 PM

Carlos Carrasco surrendered five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Royals.

Carrasco was cruising until the bottom of the fifth, when the Royals plated six runs on two doubles, two singles, a walk, and a Lorenzo Cain home run. Kansas City went on to win the game 12-5. Carrasco walked two and surrendered five hits while striking out three. He'll bring a 5-3 record and 3.36 ERA into his next start at home against the White Sox.
Jun 3 - 5:34 PM

Carlos Carrasco limited the Athletics to two earned runs over seven innings Monday for his fifth win.

May 29 - 7:28 PM

Carlos Carrasco gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Reds.

Carrasco left his last start with pectoral muscle tightness and was given an extra couple of days off before pitching tonight. He was wild in this one, walking four and hitting two batters. Still, it would have been a quality start had Terry Francona not asked him to face the top of the lineup a fourth time in the seventh inning.
May 23 - 11:04 PM

Carlos Carrasco (pectoral) will start Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Carrasco exited his last outing with tightness in his left pectoral area, but he threw his between-starts bullpen session with no issues. "He's in a really good spot," Indians pitching coach Mikey Callaway said. "He feels great. His bullpen was outstanding the other day. We're going to lean on him a lot the rest of the season, so a couple extra days doesn't really hurt if you can get them."
May 22 - 7:53 PM

Carlos Carrasco (pectoral) is tentatively scheduled to make his next start on May 23 against the Reds.

That would be one week from today. Carrasco left Monday's start against the Rays due to left pectoral tightness, so the Indians will let him rest for two days before getting him back on his usual cycle. Mike Clevinger will move up in the rotation to start on Saturday against the Astros.
May 16 - 3:40 PM

Carlos Carrasco was pulled from Monday's start against the Rays due to left pectoral tightness.

Well, at least it's not something with his pitching arm. Carrasco struggled Monday, allowing five runs over 3 2/3 frames and seeing his velocity dip, before the Indians' trainer came out to remove him. The Indians don't think the injury is serious, but the right-hander will be re-evaluated on Tuesday before the club knows whether his next start might be affected.
May 15 - 8:44 PM

Carlos Carrasco departed Monday's start against the Rays in the fourth inning with an apparent injury.

Carrasco was visited by the Indians' trainer after allowing a two-out RBI single to Brad Miller, and he eventually walked off the field. The righty wound up getting charged with five runs over 3 2/3 frames and his velocity was fading as the game went along. The Indians should have an update on Carrasco soon.
