Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco will pitch a simulated game on Thursday, June 13. He'll face hitters from Cleveland's Class AAA Columbus affiliate while they're visiting Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: He may keep the rotation spot that needs filling with Zach McAllister (finger) on the DL. AL-only players should monitor Carrasco.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco had his suspension for throwing at New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis reduced from eight to seven games. He began serving the suspension Sunday, June 9, and manager Terry Francona said it shouldn't force any of the other starters to pitch on short rest because of an off day Thursday, June 13.

The Cleveland Indians have placed SP Zach McAllister (finger) on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right middle finger. SP Carlos Carrasco has been recalled from Triple-A Columbus to make the start Saturday, June 8, with SP Justin Masterson having his start pushed back to Sunday, June 9.

The Cleveland Indians are debating on how to have SP Carlos Carrasco, who's currently at Triple-A Columbus, serve his MLB suspension, stemming from when he plunked New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis on April 9. On Thursday, May 23, general manager Chris Antonetti filed an appeal of the eight-game ban.
One potential plan is to call him up to start on July 10, drop the appeal, and have him serve four games before the All-Star break. After that, Cleveland would reshuffle the rotation so he could serve the other four contests and come back to start in his turn at the back end.
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco is 2-0 with a 1.36 ERA in eight games at Columbus, striking out 41 and walking nine. Cleveland is still monitoring his workload because he's still recovering from Tommy John surgery. In AL-only formats, and some cavernous mixed games, he could provide a boost sometime this summer.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (forearm) was diagnosed with a deep contusion on his right forearm.

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (arm) was helped off the field Thursday, April 25, after he was hit on the arm by a line drive at Triple-A Columbus.
Fri, 12 Apr 2013 12:05:20 -0700
Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco was suspended eight games Friday, April 12, for intentionally throwing at New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis.
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco can be dropped in mostly all leagues, aside from the deepest of AL-only formats. Scott Kazmir (rib cage) will take the final spot in the rotation once he returns from the disabled list soon.

The Cleveland Indians optioned SP Carlos Carrasco to the minors Wednesday, April 10, to make room for SP Corey Kluber.
Wed, 10 Apr 2013 12:01:03 -0700
The Cleveland Indians have recalled SP Corey Kluber from the minors in order to make an emergency start against the New York Yankees Wednesday, April 10. SP Carlos Carrasco was ejected during his outing Tuesday, April 9, which called for SP Brett Myers to come in and pitch for 5 1/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Kluber can be ignored in all universes since he'll likely be sent down to the minors after making this start. Carrasco hasn't endeared himself to the Tribe early this year after serving a suspension for throwing at a hitter late last year. Expect Carrasco to be sent back down when Scott Kazmir (rib cage) comes off the DL.

Cleveland Indians SP Brett Myers, who was expected to start Wednesday, April 10, against the New York Yankees, was called upon Tuesday, April 9, in relief of SP Carlos Carrasco.
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco was ejected in the fourth inning, so manager Terry Francona called upon Myers to get ready and come on. Obviously he will not be making his start Wednesday, and the team has not yet named a replacement.
