In an article primarily focused on the need for Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez needing to bounce back for the Tribe rotation to be effective in 2013, Indians.com’s Jordan Bastian also adds that it is likely that Tribe starter Carlos Carrasco, who had Tommy John Surgery late in 2011, will likely be on an innings limit next season as he looks to return to the starting rotation. Bastian writes: “‘In Carlos’ case,” Antonetti said, ‘we do have to be cognizant of him completing his rehab process and his innings restrictions this year.’ That said, Carrasco still has a realistic shot at making the Opening Day staff. “We’ll try to go with the team that we feel gives us the best chance to win games to start the season,” Antonetti said. “That’ll be the primary driver in any decisions we make in Spring Training.’” Carrasco went 8-9 with a 4.62 ERA in 21 starts before winding up on the DL. He also posted clips of 2.9 BB/9, 6.1 K/9, and 2.13 K/BB that season. The Tribe rotation will feature Masterson, Jimenez, free agent signing Brett Myers, and a competition between new hot prospect acquisition Trevor Bauer, Carrasco, and the most consistent starter in 2012 Zach McAllister for the final two spots. Corey Kluber, David Huff, and Scott Kazmir, as Bastian mentions, all come to camp with a shot at the fifth spot as well. Related: Hafner Heads East.. PEACE!
