Indians | Carlos Carrasco goes the distance

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 15:34:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco was dominant against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday, June 25, allowing only four hits and a walk while striking out seven en route to his third career shutout and seventh career complete game.

Fantasy Tip: This was easily the best performance of the season from Carrasco, who never faced more than four batters in an inning. Cameron Maybin and Jose Iglesias each got to him for doubles, but that was the best Detroit could do. After firing a season-high 117 pitches in this outing, however, he could be in line for a poor start Thursday on the road against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco very hittable in loss

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 23:22:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco allowed two earned runs, 10 hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over six innings in a loss Monday, June 13, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: The large hit total did very little to help fantasy owners in the WHIP category, but at least he was able to limit the damage and keep his ERA from taking a huge hit. He is still a solid fantasy option across the board, and his strikeout total was very nice.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco solid in return from DL

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 19:06:19 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco allowed three runs on nine hits over five innings in a no-decision against the Kansas City Royals Thursday, June 2, with one walk and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco was making his first start since coming off the disabled list due to a strained left hamstring and performed well, although his strikeout total was much lower than usual. He will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, June 7, and should be viewed as a viable pitching option in all fantasy formats.

Indians | Michael Clevinger sent down

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 12:00:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Michael Clevinger was optioned to the minor leagues Thursday, June 2, in order to make room in the rotation for SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring), who is coming off the disabled list to start against the Kansas City Royals Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Clevinger went 0-1 with an 8.79 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 in his three starts for the Tribe. He can safely be dropped if he was being used as a fill-in in AL-only leagues. Carrasco was pitching well before his injury and should be immediately reinserted into starting lineups against a KC lineup at less than full strength.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco ready for KC

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 20:37:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) will come off the 15-day disabled list to face the Kansas City Royals Thursday, June 2. He was 4-0 with a 1.55 ERA in four starts with a complete game against the Royals last season. He struck out 38 batters in 29 innings with a .160 opponent batting average.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco seems to like facing the Royals, so he is a good start for fantasy owners in seasonal leagues which allow daily moves and in DFS play.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco will return Thursday

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:08:33 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) will rejoin the Indians' lineup and start Thursday, June 2, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: This is a huge return for the Indians, who have missed Carrasco. He was off to a good start before his April 24 injury. Carrasco needed just one rehab stint at Class AA Akron, so he looks good to go. Activate him in all formats.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco to throw Monday

Mon, 30 May 2016 06:25:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, May 30, after throwing four innings for Class AA Akron Saturday, May 28. Manager Terry Francona will meet with president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti, pitching coach Mickey Callaway and the team's medical staff to determine where Carrasco should pitch next.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Carrasco may return to the team soon and could make his next pitching appearance for the Indians. He has not pitched for Cleveland for about a month, so owners may want to see him pitch in a game before using him in their lineups.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco set for rehab start

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:01:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) is set to make his first rehab start for Class AA Akron on Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Carrasco owners, as he's been out for over a month now. The talented right-hander was out to a marvelous start this season before departing his outing early on April 24. In four outings, he was 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA and 0.95 WHIP, and should be plugged in right away as soon as he's ready to return.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco throws Monday

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:12:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) threw 50 pitches over three innings during a simulated game Monday, May 23, and is scheduled to throw three innings for Class A Lake County Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco is working his way back from the hamstring injury and likely will make multiple rehab starts before he returns. Owners should keep him on their bench if they have roster spots available because he could return in the near future.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco upping activity

Fri, 20 May 2016 13:21:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) felt fine after a 38-pitch simulated game Thursday, May 19, and then did fielding drills at 80% intensity. He is scheduled to pitch a three-inning simulated game Monday, May 23, and if everything goes well, he will be ready to start a minor league rehab assignment. Carrasco will also have to pass more pitcher fielding practice tests before a rehab stint, though.

Fantasy Tip: Everything is lining up for Carrasco to return close to the longer bookend of his initial timeline of four to six weeks. Continue to stash him in all fantasy formats and check back for updates as he works his way back. When healthy, he is a fringe fantasy ace who posted an impressive 2.99 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 11.2 K/9 over his 12 second-half starts last year.
