  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Decent in loss

    Carrasco (2-4) took the loss versus the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings.

    Carrasco traded zeros with Jon Gray for the first four innings, but the Rangers broke through on a two-run home by Marcus Semien in the fifth. This was a small step back for Carrasco, who had posted quality starts in his last two outings. The right-hander is now at a 5.16 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 34:18 K:BB over 45.1 innings this season. He is projected for a home start versus the Mets his next time out.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Stumbles in loss

    Carrasco (2-3) yielded five runs (three earned) on six hits over seven innings Friday, striking out five and taking a loss against the White Sox.

    Carrasco held Chicago off the board until giving up three runs in the fifth inning, though two of those were unearned. He then served up back-to-back solo homers to Korey Lee and Paul DeJong in the seventh. Carrasco didn't allow a home run through his first four starts but has now been taken deep seven times in his last four outings. He's sporting a 5.36 ERA with a 31:17 K:BB through 40.1 innings this season. Carrasco's next start lines up to come on the road against the Rangers next week.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Bounces back with W

    Carrasco (2-2) earned the win Sunday, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over six innings against the Angels. He struck out three.

    Carrasco got back on track with his first quality start of 2024, rebounding from a pair of poor starts in which he combined for 13 earned runs over nine innings. If you erase Carrasco's two-start hiccup, he owns a 2.92 era over 24.2 innings with a 19:14 K:BB. He's lined up for a start against the White Sox, who've won five of their last nine games and are averaging 4.9 runs per game in that stretch, on Saturday.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Rocked by Astros

    Carrasco didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against Houston, allowing eight runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out three.

    Carrasco should be considered lucky to have ended up with anything other than a loss, having surrendered three-run home runs to Jon Singleton and Alex Bregman and tying his career high in runs allowed. After keeping the ball in the yard in each of his first four starts, Carrasco has given up five long balls in his past two appearances, a span in which he has yielded 13 runs with a 7:3 K:BB over nine innings. Carrasco's tentatively scheduled for a matchup against the Angels on Sunday.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Drops rematch with Red Sox

    Carrasco (1-2) took the loss Wednesday against Boston, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out four.

    After picking up a win against the Red Sox in his last outing, Carrasco had a far more difficult time Wednesday, giving up his first three home runs of the season en route to an eventual 8-0 defeat. The 37-year-old Carrasco hadn't allowed more than three earned runs in a start this year prior to Wednesday's loss. His ERA is now up to 4.63 with a 1.63 WHIP and 20:13 K:BB through his first five starts (23.1 innings). Carrasco will look to get back on track in his next outing, currently scheduled for early next week in Houston.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Picks up first win

    Carrasco (1-1) earned the win Thursday against the Red Sox, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.

    Carrasco's gotten off to a solid start in his second stint with Cleveland -- the veteran right-hander hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his first four starts. He lowered his ERA to 3.44 and also has a 1.53 WHIP and 16:12 K:BB across 18.1 innings after struggling to a 6.80 ERA in 20 starts with the Mets last season. While Carrasco isn't likely to warrant fantasy consideration at this stage in his career, he's likely locked in as the Guardians' fifth starter with Shane Bieber (elbow) out for the year.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Walks five in loss

    Carrasco (0-1) took the loss in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees after giving up a run on five hits and five walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out two.

    The veteran right-hander allowed at least one baserunner in every inning he pitched, though he was able to limit the damage to a single run despite all the traffic. Carrasco has failed to last five frames in his last two starts, though he still has a solid 3.66 ERA for the season. His 1.66 WHIP and 11:9 K:BB are less encouraging, however.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Yankees-Guardians game postponed

    Carrasco and the Guardians will not play Friday after their game versus the Yankees was postponed by inclement weather.

    The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Saturday. Carrasco and Clarke Schmidt, who had been slated to start for New York on Friday, will presumably be pushed back a day.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Inefficient in no-decision

    Carrasco came away with a no-decision Saturday in a 3-1 win over the Twins, allowing one run on one hit and three walks over three innings. He struck out six.

    The 37-year-old right-hander avoided hard contact, but he needed 78 pitches (42 strikes) to record only nine outs, forcing the Guardians to use six different relievers to finish off the victory. Carrasco has a 4.50 ERA and 9:4 K:BB through his first eight innings of 2024, and his job security may have improved following the announcement that Shane Bieber (elbow) would miss the rest of the season. Carrasco lines up for a home start against the Yankees next weekend.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Mediocre in 2024 debut

    Carrasco didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Oakland, lasting five innings and yielding three runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out three.

    Carrasco was solid outside of a rough first inning when he allowed two runs on three hits. While the 37-year-old is expected to stick in the Guardians rotation until Gavin Williams (elbow) returns from the 15-day IL, there shouldn't be high expectations for Carrasco after he generated an ugly 6.80 ERA in 90 innings with the Mets last season. He's tentatively scheduled to make his next start against the Twins in Minnesota.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Joins 40-man roster

    The Guardians selected Carrasco's contract from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

    Carrasco's addition to the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster was merely a formality after he was informed earlier in the week that he would be included in the Guardians' Opening Day rotation. The 37-year-old right-hander is lined up to make his first start Sunday in Oakland.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Will open in Cleveland rotation

    Carrasco will open in the Guardians' rotation and make his season debut Sunday against the Athletics, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    The presumption after it was announced Carrasco had made the team was that it would be as part of the rotation, and that has now been confirmed. His stay in the rotation could be a brief one, depending on how quickly Gavin Williams (elbow) makes it back, but Carrasco should log at least a couple starts. The 37-year-old held a 6.80 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 66:38 K:BB over 90 innings (20 starts) for the Mets last season.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Makes Opening Day roster

    Carrasco has been informed that he has made the Guardians' Opening Day roster.

    He has not yet been officially added to the 26-man and 40-man rosters, but Carrasco has been told he'll head north with the big club. The veteran right-hander could even open in the rotation while Gavin Williams (elbow) recovers. Carrasco has posted a 2.57 ERA and 9:6 K:BB over 14 innings this spring.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Starting spring opener

    Carrasco (finger) will start Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Reds, Nick Camino of WKYC Channel 3 Cleveland reports.

    Carrasco underwent surgery to repair a fractured finger in September but is ready for game action early in spring training. The 36-year-old joined the Guardians as a non-roster invitee after he posted a 6.80 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 66:38 K:BB over 90 innings (20 starts) for the Mets last season.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Gets NRI from Cleveland

    Carrasco (finger) signed a minor-league contract with the Guardians on Saturday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Carrasco pitched for Cleveland between 2009-20 and will return for his second stint with the franchise after three years with the Mets. Carrasco put up a 6.80 ERA and 1.70 WHIP through 90 innings across 20 starts last season, and his campaign was cut short in September by a fractured finger. Given the strength of Cleveland's rotation, it's unlikely the 36-year-old lands a starting job, but he could operate as a multi-inning reliever for the big-league club if he turns in a solid spring.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Suffers fractured finger

    Carrasco was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a fracture of his right fifth finger and is expected to be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, Pat Ragazzo of reports.

    Carrasco had been listed as the probable starter for Wednesday's series finale at Washington, but the Mets will now have to pivot after the veteran right-hander fractured the pinky on his throwing hand Sunday in a weight room incident. It'll be a season-ending setback for Carrasco, who finishes with an ugly 6.80 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 66:38 K:BB across 90 innings (20 starts) with New York. He is scheduled to become a free agent in November.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Clears waivers, stays in New York

    Carrasco will remain with the Mets after going unclaimed ahead of Thursday's waiver deadline, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Carrasco drew no interest from other teams after being placed on waivers by the Mets on Tuesday. There's a still a chunk of money remaining on his $14 million salary for 2023 and he's posted a rough 6.80 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 90 innings (20 starts) this season with New York. The 36-year-old right-hander is set to become a free agent in November.
