Indians | Carlos Carrasco receives praise

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco, who will start the year with Triple-A Columbus, received praise from manager Terry Francona after his last spring outing Wednesday, March 27, in which he tossed five shutout innings while striking out eight and walking one. "They said he was just blowing guys away," Francona said. "Most of the time when a guy goes to a back field, you'll see a velocity dip a little bit. Nobody's in the stands. His (velocity) spiked up. It's interesting. We're trying to get a handle on why that is. ... Maybe it's like he gets in a comfort zone, he's loose and he lets it fly. The good news is it's there. Now, you want to see it more consistently." Carrasco is still making his way back from Tommy John surgery.
