Indians | Sticking with Carlos Carrasco

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 18:21:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona thinks it makes more sense for the struggling SP Carlos Carrasco to work through his struggles while in the rotation, seeing if Carrasco can realize his potential. Carrasco is 0-11 with an 8.28 ERA and a 1.98 WHIP in 16 starts since last winning a game as a starter for the Indians June 29, 2011.

Fantasy Tip: If you're a fantasy owner in AL-only leagues, you're likely tired of waiting for Carrasco to "realize his potential." He is simply not getting the job done, and until he does, he is more hurtful than helpful to most owners.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco wins rotation spot

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 11:51:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco has won the final spot in the team's starting rotation over SP Josh Tomlin. Carrasco will make his first start of the year April 5 against the Minnesota Twins. The team wants Tomlin to have consistent work in the minors as he recovers from elbow reconstruction.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco was derailed by Tommy John in 2011, but he's far enough removed from the major surgery in order to make some waves, especially now that he's locked up a rotation post. His velocity is no longer in question, and he is enough of a ground-ball pitcher to intrigue some folks as an early waiver-wire target.

Indians | Trevor Bauer sent down

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 11:23:26 -0700

The Cleveland Indians optioned SP Trevor Bauer and RP C.C. Lee to Triple-A Columbus Monday, March 24, meaning SPs Carlos Carrasco and Josh Tomlin will battle for the final rotation spot. RPs Scott Atchison and Blake Wood are fighting for the final bullpen job. 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was told he will make the active roster, as well. The Indians also re-assigned 1Bs Bryan LaHair and David Cooper and C Luke Carlin.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer can be dumped in standard mixed leagues now, but keep him on your radar. There's a chance he'll be back up soon if a rotation spot opens up.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco expected to make roster

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 15:51:57 -0700

The Cleveland Indians plan on keeping SP Carlos Carrasco on the opening day roster as either a starting pitcher or reliever. He's out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco might make more sense filling out the bullpen at this point. He's not a bad target in AL-only leagues, however, since he'd likely be one of the first options should a rotation spot open up.

Indians | Competition tight for starting spots

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 09:25:30 -0800

Cleveland Indians SPs Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin, Carlos Carrasco and Aaron Harang have all pitched well so far this spring and are making the competition for the final two rotation spots, depending on what happens with SP Danny Salazar, an interesting decision. Bauer is showing more control and is throwing harder than he did last spring.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco making adjustments

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 15:15:28 -0800

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco noticed his lead arm was slipping lower in his delivery Thursday, Feb. 27, and he made the in-game adjustment to fix it. "The problem in the past is I never thought about making an adjustment," Carrasco said. "I just threw the ball. But yesterday, I felt a big difference. That's the kind of mentality that I've worked on in the offseason."
