Indians | Carlos Carrasco set to start

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:36:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (face) is scheduled to make his first start Tuesday, April 21, against the Chicago White Sox since being struck in the face by a line drive last time out.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco had his start pushed back a day, but is expected to be just fine. However, FantasyScore owners might want to avoid him at $6,900 (or 13.8% of cap), especially since he is facing the same team which hit him and he might be a little gun shy.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) dodged a bullet in his last outing, and he's scheduled to make his next start Monday against the Chicago White Sox on the road. Carrasco looked great in his first outing of the year and should be good to go for a FantasyScore lineup spot against the struggling White Sox.

Carrasco returned to the stadium before the game ended Tuesday, and he'll be re-evaluated Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) definitely dodged a huge bullet Tuesday night, and he's fortunate things didn't turn out worse. As of now, it looks like he'll be able to make his next start April 20. After a dominant first outing of the season last week, Carrasco should be considered a solid FantasyScore play against the Chicago White Sox.

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:21:15 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (head) was taken off the field on a stretcher Tuesday, April 14, after being hit by a line drive in the head.

Zach McAllister ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could replace Carrasco in the starting rotation if he needs to miss extended time or land on the disabled list. Stay tuned.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco has heart condition

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 08:57:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco has been dealing with a heart condition that required non-invasive surgery, and it is now under control. His palpitations returned this spring, and doctors gave Carrasco medication to control his heartbeat. He takes two pills a day and was assured that his condition shouldn't return if he continues to take them daily. "My heartbeat was a little bit like excited. I think it was 120 heartbeats per minute -- something like that," Carrasco said. "Those guys in Cleveland told me to do the surgery so that's what I did. So now I feel fine."

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) had a solid 2014 season that gave many hope that he'd break out in 2015. He's off to a good start after winning Wednesday night after going 6 1/3 shutout frames and striking out 10 against the Houston Astros. Carrasco should be a popular FantasyScore target when he's on the mound.
