Carlos Carrasco delivered six shutout innings Wednesday in the Indians' defeat of the Royals.

Carrasco carved his way through the Kansas City lineup with ease, yielding just one hit and two walks while striking out six. He was backed by 11 runs (and five homers) from the Cleveland offense. Carrasco will carry a 2.31 ERA into his next start at home versus the Nationals.
Jul 20 - 5:36 PM

Carlos Carrasco yielded two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Twins on Friday.

Brian Dozier drove in two runs on the night, but otherwise Carrasco kept the Twins off the board. While Carrasco finished with just three strikeouts, he gave up only four hits while walking one batter. It was a nice bounceback performance after he lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his final start before the All-Star break. Carrasco has mostly been great since coming off the disabled list and will bring a shiny 2.49 ERA into a start against the Royals next week.
Jul 15 - 11:36 PM

Carlos Carrasco struggled to survive a bevy of Indians miscues in Sunday's loss to the Yankees, surrendering five runs (one earned) on five hits over 3 2/3 innings.

Hide the children, as this was an ugly defensive performance by the Indians as a team. They finished the game having committed three errors. The good news for Carrasco owners is that those errors prevented a would-be bludgeoning of the ace's overall stats. He did surrender a three-run homer to Jacoby Ellsbury in the second, but Ellsbury's would actually be the only earned run, period, to score on his line. Statistics work in mysterious ways. Carrasco will carry a sharp 2.47 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 72/20 K/BB ratio (73 innings) into the All-Star break. A hamstring injury stole over a month from the 29-year-old right-hander's season, but if he can stay healthy in the second half, look out.
Jul 10 - 5:02 PM

Carlos Carrasco held the Tigers to just one run across six innings of work in Tuesday's 12-1 blowout victory.

The right-hander walked three, but he gave up only three singles while recording five strikeouts. Carrasco had thrown only 82 pitches through six frames, but the Indians were up 10-1 after six so they decided to bank some innings for the righty. Carrasco boasts a 1.51 ERA with a 40/11 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 frames covering his last five starts, so he'll carry plenty of momentum into his final start of the first half versus the Yankees on Sunday.
Jul 5 - 11:38 PM

Carlos Carrasco struck out a season-high 14 batters over 7 1/3 innings Thursday, allowing just one run in the Indians' 4-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Carrasco yielded just three hits, including a Josh Donaldson solo homer, while walking two on the evening. The 14 punchouts were easily his highest total this season, blowing away his previous high of eight. He had four double-digit strikeout games in his breakout 2015 season. Carrasco has been brilliant in 10 starts this season, posting a 2.56 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 63/15 K/BB ratio. The 29-year-old will next set his sights on the Tigers when the teams meet Tuesday.
Jun 30 - 11:31 PM

Carlos Carrasco threw a four-hit, complete-game shutout in a 6-0 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Carrasco has gotten progressively better with each start this month, and on Saturday he gave up just four hits and a walk while striking out seven. The complete game was his first this year and the seventh of his career. Carrasco improved to 3-2 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 49/13 K/BB ratio over 56 innings of work. He'll try to keep rolling Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Jun 25 - 7:36 PM

Carlos Carrasco provided the Indians depth in taking a no-decision against the White Sox on Sunday, yielding two runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings.

Carrasco did walk four, but his was otherwise a strong performance. A Jose Abreu RBI double in the first and a solo home run by Melky Cabrera in the fourth inning accounted for the scoring on his line. The 29-year-old right-hander was making just his eighth start of the season, as he was waylaid by a hamstring strain near the end of April and ultimately ended up missing just over a month's worth of action. He will take a 3.26 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into a road start against the Tigers next time out.
Jun 19 - 5:51 PM

Carlos Carrasco struck out eight and allowed just two run over six frames but took a loss against the Royals on Monday.

Carrasco walked just one, but he permitted 10 hits and the Royals were able to scratch across a couple runs and that was enough. It's the most hits the right-hander has allowed in seven starts this season. The good news is this was Carrasco's best effort in three tries since returning from the disabled list. He'll get the White Sox on Sunday.
Jun 13 - 11:49 PM

Carlos Carrasco surrendered four runs in 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Mariners.

Carrasco hasn't been all that sharp in either start since coming off the disabled list, but he'll surely continue to get better. He struck out six and walked just one tonight.
Jun 9 - 1:01 AM

Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) allowed nine hits and three runs over five innings against the Royals on Thursday.

Making his return to the major league mound, Carrasco was rusty, walking one and striking out two over 78 pitches. The start was his first since he suffered a left hamstring strain on April 24. Better days are certainly ahead for the 29-year-old as he rounds into form. He'll look for better results Tuesday against the Mariners.
Jun 2 - 10:53 PM

Indians activated RHP Carlos Carrasco from the 15-day disabled list.

Carrasco will return to the Indians' rotation Thursday night against the Royals after missing the last five weeks with a left hamstring strain. He threw only 53 pitches in his one rehab start with Double-A Akron, so the right-hander might not go very deep on Thursday. He had a stellar 2.45 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 20/5 K/BB ratio in 22 innings (four starts) before the injury.
Jun 2 - 3:01 PM

Carlos Carrasco will be activated from the disabled list to start Thursday against the Royals.

Carrasco, out since late-April with a hamstring strain, tossed four innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts in his lone minor league rehab start with Double-A Akron on Saturday. He'll be limited to around 80 pitches in his return to action.
May 31 - 3:25 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona on Sunday wouldn't reveal whether Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) will make another rehab start or rejoin the major league rotation.

The skipper did say he got a good report on how Carrasco looked in his rehab start with Double-A Akron on Saturday where he allowed one earned run and struck out six over four frames. Carrasco threw only 53 pitches in the outing, so the Indians might want to stretch him out a bit more before activating him.
May 29 - 11:41 AM

Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Saturday.

Carrasco has been throwing off a mound for two weeks and hasn't had any issues with his strained hamstring. The right-hander will throw four innings or 60 pitches Saturday, so he figures to need at least one additional rehab outing before rejoining the Indians' rotation early next month.
