The Indians today announced that RHP Carlos Carrasco has been recalled from AAA Columbus. He will take the roster spot of Preston Guilmet, who was brought up to bolster the bullpen yesterday. What is particularly interesting is that the Indians plan to use Carrasco out of the bullpen. “Carrasco begins his fourth stint at the Major League level in 2013, posting an 0-4 record with a 9.10ERA in 6 previous starts with Cleveland (28.2IP, 47H, 29ER, 13BB, 15K). Around his tenure with the Indians he has gone 3-1-1 with a 3.14ERA in 16 games/14 starts for Triple-A Columbus (71.2IP, 59H, 25ER, 21BB, 79K, .221 AVG, 9.9K per 9.0IP). Carlos is slated to pitch out of the bullpen and will be in uniform tonight when the Indians take on the Angels at 7:05 PM ET in Progressive Field.” The bullpen has been overworked the last two games, pitching 5.2 innings yesterday (not counting Raburn’s inning of work) and 6.2 innings on Wednesday.
