      Indians SP Carlos Carrasco flirts with no-no in win over Royals

      Indians starter Carlos Carrasco (14-11) tossed a complete-game shutout on Friday, allowing just one hit and two walks while striking out a career-high 15 in a win over Kansas City. Carrasco carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning and went the distance for the third time in his past nine starts. Carrasco has been striking batters out all season, ranking ninth in the league. Over the past few months, however, he has become similarly dominant in other categories. In his 11 starts since the All-Star break, Carrasco has a 2.49 ERA with a minuscule 0.84 WHIP. He can be counted on to shine during fantasy playoffs.

      Indians SP Carlos Carrasco K's nine but takes loss vs. White Sox

      Indians starter Carlos Carrasco (13-11) took the loss in Saturday's 5-2 defeat by the White Sox despite striking out nine in five-plus innings. He surrendered four hits, three runs (two earned) and two walks. The 28-year-old hard-throwing right-hander couldn't get by with just his wicked stuff on Saturday, although the performance did mark his second consecutive nine-strikeout outing. Carrasco had come into Saturday in good form, having posted quality starts in six of his previous seven trips to the mound, including back-to-back complete games during that stretch. In spite of Saturday's setback, Carrasco has enjoyed a banner year, posting career-highs in wins, strikeouts, starts and innings pitched, and his current 10.3 K/9 rate ranks him among the best in baseball in that category.

      Indians' Carlos Carrasco overcomes lead-off HR for 13th win

      Indians starter Carlos Carrasco turned in a strong performance in his outing against the Royals on Monday. The right-hander allowed one run on five hits over six innings of work. He walked two and struck out nine, en route to the 8-3 win. Carrasco (13-10, 3.62 ERA) was down early, as he gave up a solo home run to Alex Gordon to lead off the game. But the Indians rallied to score four unanswered runs and they were able to hang on for the win. Aside from his most recent outing, when he allowed four runs in 2 2/3 innings to the White Sox, Carrasco has looked rather impressive lately. Taking out that rough outing, he is 3-1 with a 1.38 ERA in six starts following Monday's performance.

      Shoulder injury sends Indians SP Carlos Carrasco to 15-day DL

      Indians starter Carlos Carrasco has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a shoulder injury. Carrasco had an MRI on Tuesday which came back clean, but he was still scratched from his start on Wednesday. He received a cortisone shot in his shoulder, and will rest for a few days, though he is expected to return after the minimum 15 days. "Watching him throw his bullpen yesterday, he's OK, he's just a little bit stiff after," Indians manager Terry Francona said before Tuesday's game, per "I was glad they did the MRI. Sometimes when you give MRIs to pitchers, you have to be careful because anybody that's thrown a baseball can have something wrong in there. But his was very clean. We were thrilled." In 2015, Carrasco is 12-9 with a 3.53 ERA. Carrasco's move to the DL opens up a roster spot for Cody Anderson, who will return from the DL to start on Wednesday.
