  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Friday's game postponed

    Carrasco won't start as scheduled Friday against the Rockies since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

    The contest will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday, and Carrasco is likely to start one of those games. The Mets have yet to name a starter for Saturday's originally scheduled game, though David Peterson should be in the mix for a promotion.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Gives up four runs in no-decision

    Carrasco allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two in 4.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mariners. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Carrasco logged quality starts in his last two outings, allowing just two runs in 14.2 innings during that time. He was unable to generate the same success Sunday, but he wasn't charged with the loss since the Mets put up five runs over the first four innings. In spite of his struggles against Seattle, Carrasco has bounced back early in the season after he posted a 6.04 ERA in 53.2 innings last year. Over his first seven starts in 2022, the right-hander has a 3.73 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 41 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Colorado on Friday.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Sharp in third win

    Carrasco (3-1) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on seven hits over 6.2 innings in a 4-2 victory over the Nationals. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The veteran right-hander fired 57 of 83 pitches for strikes en route to his second straight quality start and his third of the year. Carrasco isn't as dominant as he was in his Cleveland heyday, but he looks healthy and has posted a strong 3.19 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 33:6 K:BB through 36.2 innings.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Blanks Atlanta for second win

    Carrasco (2-1) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Atlanta, allowing six hits and two walks over eight scoreless innings. He struck out five.

    The veteran right-hander bounced back in dazzling fashion from a rough performance against the Cardinals in his last start. Carrasco fired 96 pitches (68 strikes) before exiting his second quality start of the season, and while he'll take a 3.30 ERA and 1.00 WHIP into his next outing, the 35-year-old's 23.1 percent strikeout rate is still well off the pace he managed while anchoring the Cleveland staff in his late 20s.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Starting second game of twin bill

    Carrasco is slated to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with Atlanta, as David Peterson was announced as the Mets' starting pitcher for the first game of the twin bill.

    Manager Buck Showalter previously confirmed Monday that Carrasco and Peterson -- who was called up from Triple-A Syracuse -- would be the Mets' starting pitchers for the twin bill, but the skipper didn't specify in which order the two would take the hill. With Peterson having now been announced as the Game 1 starter, Carrasco will draw a head-to-head matchup with Kyle Wright in the nightcap. Carrasco enters Tuesday with a 4.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB across 22 innings through his first four starts.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Folds against Cards

    Carrasco (1-1) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits and two walks over 3.2 innings as the Mets were downed 10-5 by the Cardinals. He struck out three, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch.

    After three strong starts to begin the season, Carrasco stumbled badly in this one. He needed 78 pitches (53 strikes) to record only 11 outs and squandered an early 4-1 lead in the process. The right-hander's ERA jumped from 1.47 to 4.09, but Carrasco's 23:4 K:BB through 22 innings remains impressive.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Another strong outing

    Carrasco (1-0) allowed two earned runs on four hits and no walks while striking out seven across 7.2 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Giants.

    Carrasco had a bumpy second inning, during which he allowed the first three batters he faced to reach base and ultimately one run to come around to score. He was excellent otherwise, as he retired 18 straight hitters from the third to seventh innings. Carrasco has worked at least five frames while allowing two earned runs or fewer in each of his three starts this season. All told, he's maintained a 1.47 ERA with a 20:2 K:BB across his first 18.1 frames on the campaign.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Punches out eight

    Carrasco allowed three hits and two walks while striking out eight across five scoreless innings Saturday against Arizona. He did not factor into the decision.

    Carrasco dominated the Diamondbacks throughout his effort, as he limited them to only one extra-base hit. He also generated 17 swinging strikes on only 82 total pitches. Carrasco has looked sharp through two outings this season, recording a 13:2 K:BB across 10.2 frames. He's currently projected to make his next start Thursday against San Francisco.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Settles in after early homer

    Carrasco allowed one run on two hits over 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday. He struck out five and did not issue a walk.

    Nelson Cruz greeted Carrasco with a long ball in the first inning, but Carrasco was fantastic after that. He allowed just a single the rest of the way and finished his outing retiring 15 batters in a row. He fed Washington a steady diet of offspeed pitches and looks like a strong fantasy option for next week's scheduled home matchup against the Diamondbacks.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Feels fully healthy again

    Carrasco says he has full range of motion in his elbow again after offseason surgery to remove a bone spur, and as a result his splitter and slider are both returning to form, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    "It's completely different from last year," Carrasco said Wednesday. The 35-year-old right-hander stumbled to a 6.04 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 21.1 percent strikeout rate over 53.2 innings last season, but as recently as 2020 he was posting a 2.91 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 28.8 percent K-rate. If Carrasco can regain that level of performance, he could prove to be a steal in fantasy drafts this spring.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Looks good in sim game

    Carrasco threw 30 pitches over two innings in a simulated game Friday, Joe Trezza of reports.

    The veteran right-hander may not be ready for Opening Day as he works his way back from elbow surgery in October to remove a bone chip, but Carrasco doesn't appear to be too far behind the rest of the Mets' rotation. "It's really encouraging to see Carlos making progress," manager Buck Showalter said after Carrasco's sim game. The 35-year-old has made only 12 starts in each of the last three years, stumbling to a 6.04 ERA and 1.43 WHIP last season, and given that he hasn't pitched more than 80 innings in a campaign since 2018, Carrasco's workload could be carefully managed in an effort to keep him healthy.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Healthy after offseason surgery

    Carrasco said Tuesday that he feels fully healthy and in good shape after undergoing surgery in October to remove a bone fragment in his right elbow, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Carrasco noted that his improved health has been apparent in his initial bullpen sessions at spring training; his fastball reached 92 miles per hour during Tuesday's session, whereas the right-hander said his velocity typically sits at around 86-to-88 mph at this stage of camp. The 34-year-old's first season in Flushing was delayed until late July after he dealt with a significant hamstring injury, and he never seemed to look right over the course of 12 starts, posting a 6.04 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. A healthy spring training coupled with his past track record of excellence could be enough to make Carrasco an intriguing flier in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Undergoes successful surgery

    Carrasco underwent surgery Tuesday to remove a bone fragment from his right elbow.

    Carrasco missed the first half of the 2021 campaign with a hamstring injury and recorded a 6.04 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 53.2 innings across 12 starts. Although he'll require some time to recover following his elbow procedure, he's expected to resume baseball activities this winter. As a result, it seems likely that the right-hander will be ready for spring training in 2022.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Gives up five runs

    Carrasco (1-5) was tagged with the loss Saturday against Atlanta after allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks while fanning five across five innings.

    Carrasco had quite a few ups and downs throughout the season but ends the year on a sour note, as he gave up exactly five runs in each of his last two appearances. The veteran made 12 starts in his first year with the Mets and posted a woeful 6.04 ERA, a figure that represents his worst mark since 2013.
