Carrasco (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions in Cleveland, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Manager Terry Francona said Carrasco is doing well in his recovery from elbow inflammation. He will still need to ramp up to simulated games before he'll be ready to work as a starter, but at least it sounds like he is progressing well following a mid-March injection in his sore right elbow.
Carrasco received an injection in his elbow Wednesday and will be shut down for a few days, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Carrasco underwent an MRI on his sore right elbow, which didn't reveal anything other than the mild inflammation he'd been diagnosed with over the weekend. While he's only expected to be shut down for a few days, even in the best-case scenario that doesn't leave much time for him to build up to a starting workload by Opening Day, especially considering his spring debut was delayed by a hip issue.
Carrasco is dealing with mild elbow inflammation, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Manager Terry Francona said Carrasco has been backed up a few days for maintenance and didn't seem concerned that it would be problematic. Carrasco will work out with weighted balls Saturday and the team will see how he feels. This is obviously not good news, but there have not been any tests scheduled yet, which is encouraging.
Carrasco (hip) has been cleared to start Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Angels, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. The right hip flexor injury Carrasco picked up during a Feb. 20 workout proved to be only a short-term concern, as the right-hander was cleared to face hitters in a live batting practice session just over a week later. With Carrasco coming out of that workout no worse for the wear, he'll now take the hill for his first start of the spring. Carrasco should have enough time to build up his arm for a starter's workload when his first turn through the Tribe's regular-season rotation comes up in late March.
Carrasco (hip) is expected to make his first start of spring training Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Carrasco threw a live batting practice session Friday, and he'll likely get into game action if he continues to recover smoothly. The right-hander was diagnosed with a right hip flexor strain early in spring training, but a return to game action would likely be a good sign regarding his availability for Opening Day.
