Cleveland pitcher Carlos Carrasco was fined an undisclosed amount and suspended 8 games for intentionally hitting Yankees hitter Kevin Youkilis during Tuesday’s game.  The start was Carrasco’s first start of the year, and came after serving a six game suspension for hitting a Kansas City Royal in his last start before injury. RHP Carlos Carrasco suspended 8-games by MLB. As a minor league player he is eligible to pitch in Columbus. Suspension must be served w/CLE — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 12, 2013 Carrasco maintained that he did not intentionally throw at Youkilis, but that he slipped while throwing the pitch. The video evidence would suggest that Carrasco slipped after the ball had been released. Carrasco could appeal the suspension, although if the team timed his recall correctly (which of course they would) he could miss just one start. He is currently on the Columbus Clippers roster and would have to be activated in order to start serving the suspension. The Indians also announced some other moves to the active roster today- “Recalled LHP NICK HAGADONE from AAA Columbus Activated INF/DH JASON GIAMBI from the 15-day Disabled List Placed RHP MATT ALBERS on the Paternity List Optioned RHP COREY KLUBER to Columbus Hagadone was optioned to AAA Columbus on April 2 and made 2 scoreless appearances with the Clippers, fanning 5 of the 12 batters he faced (2.1IP, 2H, 0R, 3BB, 5K). This spring Nick posted an ERA of 0.93 in 10 relief appearances (9.2IP, 6H, 1R/ER, 2BB, 11K). Giambi is making his Indians roster debut after signing with the club on February 9. He was added to the Major League roster on March 25 and placed on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain.” Kluber of course was brought up to take the place of Carrasco and start in Myers’ spot because Brett Myers pitched the rest of the game Tuesday after Carrasco’s ejection. Kluber did not get to make a start due to the rain-outs the last two nights. [Related: Hoping the Indians used the rain to regroup]
