Carrasco, Tribe look to bounce back against Blue Jays

After struggling in the first two series on this 10-game trip, the Toronto Blue Jays began their final one on a positive note. As Mark Buehrle looks to continue his success at Cleveland, the Blue Jays try to build on their latest victory Friday night against the reeling Indians. Toronto (11-12) dropped five of the first six on the trip before Thursday's 5-1 series-opening victory...

Indians Series Summary No. 5: Oh, man, that was cold

Except for Carlos Carrasco’s happy reunion with the mound on Tuesday night, there were no warm and fuzzy feelings produced by this fifth series of the season for the Cleveland Indians. This was their second consecutive Lost-Won-Lost series and all three games were played in mid-40s temperatures with wind-chill factors that made one glad to be indoors and not at U.S. Cellular Field...

Carlos Carrasco to pitch for Indians on Monday

As Carlos Carrasco laid on the ground and players, coaches, and trainers rushed to his side, all while the rest of us prayed that he would be okay after a Melky Cabrera line drive hit him squarely in the jaw, it would have been unfathomable to suggest that he would be pitching anytime in the near future. However, today the Indians announced that Carlos Carrasco will start on Monday...

Ball Played: Thankfully, scary injury for Carrasco not as bad as first appeared

Normally, I write the top portion of these recaps ahead of time in order to provide a true feel for how the game was expected to be played. Whether the game follows the script or diverges is an important component. I had written up about Carlos Carrasco’s ten strikeout performance and his 2014 dominance of the White Sox lineup that would be set against Jose Quintana that struggled...

Carlos Carrasco shockingly OK after getting hit in face by line drive

On Tuesday night, a scary moment that you absolutely never want to see happened at Progressive Field in Cleveland – Indians starter Carlos Carrasco got hit in the face with a line drive. Thankfully, Carrasco got his glove up and slightly deflected the ball, leading to it hitting his cheek instead of his forehead or eye. Somehow, some way, Carrasco was OK after his trip to the...

Cleveland Indians Pitcher Carlos Carrasco Carted Off After Getting Nailed in the Face With a Line Drive

At one point in time most little boys want to be baseball pitchers. They want to be the guys that can throw a ball 100 miles per hour, make it curve, make it slide, make it break, and all sorts of things. They want to be the guy striking out the big hitter and winning the game. What discourages many from pursuing the dream is a desire not to end up like Cleveland Indians starting...

Carrasco Deal a Calculated Risk for Both Sides

The current Cleveland Indians have taken a page straight from the playbook of former Tribe general manager John Hart. Over the past few years, management has locked up what it feels to be the core and the future of the team with long-term contracts. As it was in the days of Hart, this tactic is still a gamble for both the player and the team. The player, naturally, is trading in...
