Tribe manager Terry Francona stated RHP that Carlos Carrasco will start Tuesday’s game against the Yankees at Progressive Field. Carrasco will also replace injured No. 5 starter Scott Kazmir in the Tribe’s rotation. The Tribe promoted top prospect Trevor Bauer to start in place of Kazmir tonight in Tampa. Terry Francona stated pre-game Carlos Carrasco will make his 2013 debut on Tuesday vs. the NYY: rotation is now Jimenez/Carrasco/Myers/ZMac — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 5, 2013 With the Tribe’s next off day not coming until Monday, April 15th, inserting Carrasco into the rotation will help keep Ubaldo and Masterson on their rotation and give Myers and McAllister an extra days rest. Carrasco, 26, was acquired by the Indians in the Cliff Lee trade and missed the entire 2012 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September of 2011. Carrasco went 8-9 with a 4.62 in twenty one starts for the Indians in 2011. Carrasco has been on Cleveland’s 25-man roster but is ineligible to pitch until after Sunday, as he’s still serving a six-game suspension for throwing at Kansas City’s Bill Butler in 2011. Bauer, the main piece in deal that sent Shin-Soo Choo to the Reds, and Carrasco were fighting for Kazmir’s spot in the rotation throughout spring training. [Related: WFNY 2013 Tribe Predictions]
