Indians | Carlos Carrasco in hunt for rotation spot

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 20:23:36 -0800

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco is competing with Ps Trevor Bauer, Aaron Harang and Josh Tomlin for the fifth spot in the rotation. SP Shaun Marcum (shoulder) also might join the battle when healthy. General manager Chris Antonetti said Carrasco is already on the club, whether it's in the bullpen or in the rotation, hoping that will relax the pitcher who is out of options. "He felt like he was pitching for his major league life," manager Terry Francona said of Carrasco before. "He knew there a chance he'd go to Triple-A." Carrasco has made some adjustments to his delivery to give him more deception.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco has a live arm, and could be a boon to fantasy owners in the strikeouts department if he could win a job, pitch effectively and stay healthy. All of those things have been a problem in parts of five seasons in the majors to this point.

Indians | Asdrubal Cabrera dealing with lingering injury

Thu, 30 May 2013 17:36:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said SS Asdrubal Cabrera (quadriceps) has been dealing with a right quadriceps injury on and off since late April. Francona said the team has been monitoring the situation and that Cabrera has been good about letting the team knows how he feels.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has been dealing with the injury for several weeks but has not gone on the disabled list at this point. There is still a chance he could go on the DL if the injury affects his play. If he did miss some time, Mike Aviles likely would see most of the time at shortstop. Aviles would be an waiver pick up in AL-only leagues as well as some deep mixed leagues if an owner was looking to add depth.
