Can Carlos Carrasco Repeat His 2014 Success?

By now most of us are aware of the odd journey Carlos Carrasco has taken to this point in his professional career. He came to the Tribe in 2009 as the centerpiece of the trade that sent 2008 Cy Young Award winner, Cliff Lee, to the Philadelphia Phillies. After several less than impressive stints with the big league club, and many trips down I-71 to Columbus, Carrasco found himself...

Second Thoughts Game #161: Tampa Bay 2, Cleveland 0

Carlos Carrasco’s Saturday performance was, if not wholly and faithfully representative, at least emotionally representative of the Indians’ season to date. On one hand, Carrasco threw a gem, an eight-inning, ten-strikeout, three-walk performance that resulted in two earned runs. On the other hand, it coincided with a Rays’ shutout of the Indians and hence a pitcher loss for...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Tribe Happenings: How much longer on Carrasco?

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… Put up or shut up time for Carrasco While the Indians underwhelming 11-14 record to date through 25 games may be the biggest concern at the moment, one of the hottest topics with regard to the team is the starting rotation and more specifically how much longer the Indians should stick with Danny Salazar and Carlos Carrasco...

Carrasco running out of chances to prove he's starting rotation material

CLEVELAND -- Carlos Carrasco said throughout spring training that he was ready both physically and mentally to be a starting Major League pitcher. After two outings where he has given up nine earned runs in 10 1/3 innings, Carrasco knows Sunday's start against Toronto might be one last opportunity to show he can remain in the rotation. "This start is really important because my two...

Carrasco looking more like front-runner for final rotation spot

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- With a spot in the rotation up for grabs, Carlos Carrasco made a pretty good case on Monday that he should be the guy. The right-hander pitched six solid innings as the Indians beat the Reds 8-3 on Monday at Goodyear Ballpark. Carrasco allowed three runs on nine hits, striking out five and walking none. Josh Tomlin, who is the other candidate for the spot, will...
