Found April 04, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
The Cleveland Indians will promote prospect starting pitcher Trevor Bauer on Saturday to take the place of injured starting pitcher Scott Kazmir. Reported out of Toronto this afternoon, Indians manager Terry Francona said that 22-year old Bauer will get the nod while Carlos Carrasco serves a six-game suspension. Kazmir will miss up to three starts after being placed on the disabled list with a right rib cage strain. Off during the first two nights of the season, the Indians are greeted with 13 straight games without a night off so it is conceivable that Carrasco would be promoted at some point after his suspension — stemming from an incident in 2011 — has been served. Bauer and Carrasco were in competition with Kazmir and others for the final spot in the Indians’ rotation this spring. Bauer was 12-2 with a 2.42 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 157 strikeouts in 130 1/3 innings in 22 starts among Double-A and Triple-A last season in the Diamondbacks organization. He was the main piece of the trade which sent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo to Cincinnati this past offseason and is considered a top-20 prospect in all of baseball.
