How Carlos Carraso pitched his way into ace status for the Indians

Carlos Carrasco is the ace, if not of the Cleveland Indians then at least of the PITCHf/x leaderboards we maintain at Baseball Prospectus. After years of inconsistent development and injury trouble, Carrasco has emerged in the past year and a half as one of the league's most dynamic starters. His raw stuff is impressive, but the fun thing is that he gets more interesting (and more...

Joey Butler: More Than Just a No Hit Spoiler

On July 1st, 2015, Carlos Carrasco pitched as well as any pitcher in Major League baseball history for eight innings. Unfortunately, he began the ninth with a walk and a hit batter before left fielder Joey Butler ended his no hitter with an RBI single to center that ended Carrasco’s day. The Indians still got the win and Butler would continue on with his first full MLB season,...

Looking Back: Carrasco K’s 15 in Complete Game One-Hit Gem

It is scary to think where the Cleveland Indians may have been in the final standings without the ace-like work Carlos Carrasco gave their rotation in 2015. It was a meteoric rise for a guy once thought to be his own worst enemy. A head hunter. A loose cannon. An inconsistent starter banished to the bullpen by the end of April of 2014. Now, he is a name frequent to trade rumors and...

Necessary Moves: Carlos Carrasco, Cleveland Indians

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

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...
