Carrasco hits mound as Tribe holds out hope

The Cleveland Indians may be facing a daunting task to make their second straight appearance in the wild-card round, but as long as the math works out they're not going to give up the fight. Carlos Carrasco looks to bounce back from his first loss since joining the rotation as he faces the Houston Astros on the road Wednesday night. Cleveland (77-73) trails Kansas City by five...

Well, Jonathan Papelbon sure was yesterday!  But we're looking at the starting pitchers here in the Pitcher Profile corner, and the emergence of Carlos Carrasco since re-inserted into the rotation has been carrying fantasy owners...

Carrasco Cruises Through Pale Hose with Four-Hit Gem; Indians 2, White Sox 0

Whatever changes Carlos Carrasco made before returning to the starting rotation, they sure have worked. Carrasco pitched nothing short of a gem on Sunday afternoon, shutting out the Chicago White Sox for eight and two third innings and leading the Indians to a 2-0 victory at Progressive Field. While it has been said before, this game is Carrasco’s best since returning to the rotation...

From Zeros to Potential Heroes For Carrasco and Salazar

It’s a well-known fact that with a 162-game schedule a lot can happen over the course of a baseball season – the longest season in North American sports. The idea of a Major League Baseball season being a marathon much more than a sprint is a horribly overused cliché, but has been very much seen on the home front with the Cleveland Indians starting pitching this year. Most notably...

Indians 3, White Sox 2: Carrasco 2.0 does it again

No matter how many times you want to bury the Tribe, or how many times they seem to try and bury themselves, they just keep coming back and winning the series. A night after losing a game they should have won with their ace Corey Kluber on the mound, it was up to Carlos Carrasco to keep the Indians on their current track. The goal, obviously, is to win every game, but they continue...

DraftKings – Hot Carrasco Sauce Goes With Everything

Go enjoy your bukkake fetish somewhere else, m'kay? Thanks. Now that we got rid of THAT crowd...hey wait, where did everybody go? Seriously, THAT was a majority of my readership? I guess I'm big...

Remain Cautious(ly Optimistic) with Carrasco in Rotation

The Cleveland Indians have been starting a pitcher in their rotation that looks like Carlos Carrasco the last two times through the rotation. Physically, he looks like the pitcher the Indians traded for in July 2008 and promoted to their big league roster as early as September 2009, but once the ball leaves his hand, it hasn’t looked much like the previous parts of the last five...

Second Thoughts: Carrasco to the rescue

Carlos Carrasco has passed the first test in his return to the starting rotation. It seems likely he’ll get an extended look there as yet another opportunity for him to establish himself as a starting pitcher. While it’s been a long time since Carrasco has had the success he had on Sunday, this isn’t the first time he’s pitched well as a starter. In June of 2011 Carrasco...

Carlos Carrasco: Finding Success as a Reliever

Written by numberFire (@numberFire) Once a top-50 prospect, Carlos Carrasco had front-of-the-line starter potential. Traded to the Cleveland Indians in the Cliff Lee deal, Carrasco was expected to be a top starter. Now he’s in the bullpen, finding success as other converted starters have before him. Tommy John surgery caused Carrasco to miss all of 2012, and coming back, he...
