Carmona's arrest leaves hole in rotation

The Indians are faced with a potential hole in their starting rotation in the wake of Fausto Carmona's arrest for identity theft on Jan. 19 in the Dominican Republic. Carmona's arrest made his availability for the start of spring training, and perhaps for the start of the regular season, very questionable.
