Blue Jays | TOR scouting wide variety of pitchers

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:43:44 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are looking at several pitchers in their quest to land a starter, according to baseball sources. Pitchers mentioned include Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers, San Diego Padres SP's Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are trying long and hard to improve their starting pitching, and other pitchers like Mat Latos and Dan Haren are also on this list. The odds of the Blue Jays landing one of these starters might be quite nice, thanks to how wide the net is.

Marlins | Indians pitchers on the block?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 09:45:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians SPs Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar could be being scouted by the Miami Marlins, according to the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer. The Marlins have scouts in Cleveland.

Fantasy Tip: The Marlins will lose two-thirds of their rotation, Mat Latos and Dan Haren, to free agency after the 2015 season. Pitching in the National League in spacious Marlins Park, which ranks 19th in runs scored, would benefit any pitcher and especially two with the strikeout ability of Carrasco and Salazar.

Blue Jays | Toronto unable to add Carlos Carrasco

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 16:16:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco was a trade target for the Toronto Blue Jays, but the two teams were not able to reach an agreement.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) could be moved before the trade deadline, but he will remain with the Indians for now. He has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts and has struck out at least five batters in his last seven starts. Carrasco is scheduled to start against the Chicago White Sox in his next outing and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Toronto interested in Carlos Carrasco

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:14:35 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays have spoken to the Cleveland Indians about SP Carlos Carrasco, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo!, Thursday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) has a 10-7 record through 19 starts, to go with a 10.08 K/9 and a 3.94 ERA. It is expected to take quite an offer to land Carrasco via trade, but he would certainly bolster the Jays' rotation.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco flirts with no-hitter

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:55:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (10-6) allowed one run on one hit over 8 2/3 innings in a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, July 1, with two walks and 13 strikeouts. He carried a perfect game into the seventh inning, retiring the first 19 batters before walking OF Joey Butler. However, Carrasco kept the no-hitter until allowing a single to Butler on an 0-2 count with two outs in the ninth inning. This marked the third consecutive night the Indians have carried a perfect game into the sixth inning against the Rays and if he had been successful, it would have been the first Cleveland no-hitter since 1981.

Fantasy Tip: With the win, Carrasco ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) reached double-digit victories for the first time in his major league career. He ended up throwing a career-high 124 pitches in the game, so it will be interesting to see how he bounces back in his next scheduled start against the Houston Astros next week.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco shuts down Tigers

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:13:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco took a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning in a victory over the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, June 24. He ended the day giving up five hits and two runs while striking out seven. Carrasco entered the game with a 6.93 career ERA against the Tigers. He finished the day with a season ERA of 4.16.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has been a very valuable fantasy baseball starter this year, despite what his ERA might suggest. He entered the game with a 10.0 K/9 and added seven more K's this afternoon. He'll continue to be a strong FantasyScore option heading into the All-Star break.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco to face Detroit

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 21:46:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco is the probable pitcher for Wednesday, June 24, against the Detroit Tigers. He is 1-1 with a 7.20 ERA in two outings against the Tigers this season.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers have run roughshod over the Indians this season, so Carrasco ($6,600; or 13.2% of cap) is not a recommended FantasyScore play.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco gaining form

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:01:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco struck out eight and allowed three runs and seven hits over 5 2/3 innings Saturday, June 13, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: As Carrasco's ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) 4.38 ERA continues to approach his 2.85 xFIP his fantasy value will continue to rise. Carrasco still owns one of the league's elite strikeout rates at 10.34, making him a high reward play on FantasyScore, despite the risk he carries.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco dethrones Royals

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 20:48:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over seven innings to record his seventh win during Cleveland's 2-1 win over the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($6,600, 12.2% of cap) has been a little inconsistent early on this season, however he has now posted four consecutive starts with at least seven punchouts and three consecutive with two earned runs allowed or fewer. After his sterling finish to the 2014 season, it appears Carrasco is settling in, and he is now up to seven wins this season. FantasyScore players could grab ace upside at a mid-tier price with Carrasco for his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, June 7.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco sharp against Texas

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:34:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco allowed just a solo home run in eight sharp innings to beat the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 27. He allowed just five hits and struck out eight hitters to improve to 6-4 on the season. He walked one and threw 70 of his 105 pitches for strikes. Carrasco's season ERA now sits at 4.24.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is pitching much better than his ERA and 1.26 WHIP may suggest, and he should continue to be a solid FantasyScore option throughout the season. The right-hander is striking out 10.6 hitters per nine innings in 2015.
