Indians | Pleased with Carlos Carrasco

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona was enthused after SP Carlos Carrasco (elbow) threw in an indoor cage Friday, Jan. 18. The audible pop of the catcher's mitt made the skipper smile. "Granted, he was in the cage," Francona said. "But that ball was making a loud noise. It was exciting. If he's not healthy, nobody is."

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco is expected to be in the mix for the team's fifth starter job in spring training. Even if he wins the job, he is useful in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues only.
