Maybe the Last Key for Carlos Carrasco

By this point you might feel like you know enough about the Carlos Carrasco story. Carrasco is coming off what looks like a breakthrough season.

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.
