New and Improved Carrasco Key in Cleveland Rotation

Carlos Carrasco, 2015 Fantasy Sleeper

I nearly didn't write this post, because, even as I write this in November, Carlos Carrasco seems overhyped for a sleeper. So, a big part of the equation, will a guy be more valuable than his draft spot, hence be a sleeper, work for Carrasco? I'm not entirely sure. There's no ADP data right now.

Taking Carrasco out of Indians rotation is right call

The Indians are 11-15 and have played some pretty sloppy baseball throughout April. When a team is off to such a start and has played so poorly in almost every facet of the game, some changes are going to be made. The first such significant change was the announcement after Monday night's game in Anaheim that Carlos Carrasco has been moved to the bullpen. Carrasco, 27, went 0-3 with...
