CARLOS CARRASCO RUMORS

Grantland: Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, and Danny Salazar poised for breakout seasons

Grantland’s Jonah Keri is a big fan of the Cleveland Indians this season, so much so that he recently placed them among the top five teams in baseball. With a Cy Young candidate for an ace, an MVP candidate in left field and one of the best catchers in the game, this makes sense. But for the Indians to make that jump, they’ll not only need improvement from key players—Jason...

Carrasco’s Continued Climb a Key to Tribe’s 2015 Ride

Last summer Cedar Point promised to name a roller coaster for Lebron James if he returned home to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Maybe this summer America’s Roller Coast should consider naming one for Carlos Carrasco. Carrasco’s ride would start fast, then be filled with twists and turns, ups and downs and appear destined to catapult it’s riders into the lake…right before a rocket...

Carlos Carrasco’s Change Doesn’t Really Have a Comp

I’m back again to close out your week by talking about pitch comps. I’ve talked about pitch comps a lot lately, looking at Henderson Alvarez, and Mariano Rivera, and Cole Hamels, and so on.

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. It was also his age-27 season, and previously, he was mostly regarded as a bust. He first showed up in the Baseball America top-100 before 2007, when the No. 1 […]

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...

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...

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...
