Carrasco will be begin serving his suspension today. Carlos Carrasco's suspension has been reduced to 7 games as result of his appeal to MLB; will begin serving today — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) June 9, 2013 Carrasco was suspended back in April after he hit the Yankees’ Kevin Youkillis with a pitch up and in on the shoulder. This was the second time Carrasco has been suspended, the first for an incident back in 2011 for throwing at the head of Kansas City’s Billy Butler. Before he could serve that suspension, Carrasco was sent to the disabled list and underwent Tommy John surgery. With the suspension still looming he began the year in the big leagues so he could complete the suspension from the Butler incident and then the plan was to send him down to Columbus. After an injury to Scott Kazmir, Carrasco was forced to start for the Tribe against New York when he was suspended once again. The Indians then sent him down to Columbus while they studied the schedule, looking for a place for Carrasco to come back up, make a start, drop his appeal and begin serving his suspension. Carrasco took the loss yesterday against Detroit, giving up six runs on ten hits in four innings. Carrasco’s ERA in his two starts is 15.26 [Related:What we will see from mercurial Tribe rotation]
