Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Pitches into seventh
Carrasco (13-4) earned the win Tuesday after he pitched 6.2 innings, surrendering two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out nine versus the Reds.
Carrasco was able to limit the damage against him in this one to a two-run homer by Jake Fraley with one out in the top of the seventh frame. The nine strikeouts were his highest total since June 6, and he has now allowed three or fewer runs in seven straight outings. Over that stretch, Carrasco has produced a 1.69 ERA over 42.2 innings while registering four quality starts.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Puts in solid outing for win
Carrasco (12-4) allowed three runs on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings to pick up the win over Atlanta on Thursday.
Carrasco limited the damage to the fifth inning, when he gave up an RBI single to Michael Harris and a two-run home run to Ronald Acuna. In his three previous starts, Carrasco had strung together an 18.2-inning scoreless streak -- he wasn't that sharp Thursday, but it was still enough for his third win in four outings. The right-hander now owns a 3.82 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 114:31 K:BB across 117.2 innings through 21 starts. He's projected for a home start versus the Reds next week.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Extends scoreless streak in win
Carrasco (11-4) earned the win over Miami on Saturday, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over 7.2 scoreless innings.
Carrasco dominated the Marlins, allowing only one extra-base hit and preventing any runners from reaching third base en route to his 100th career victory. The veteran hurler was efficient, throwing 63 of 93 pitches for strikes in his second-longest outing of the campaign. Carrasco went through a rough patch in June but has turned things around dramatically in July, posting a 0.90 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB over 30 innings while compiling a 3-0 record. He's held his opponent scoreless in each of his past three starts and hasn't allowed any runs across his past 18.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Throws five scoreless innings
Carrasco allowed six hits and two walks with one strikeout in five innings, taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Padres.
Carrasco battled with Joe Musgrove, trading zeroes on the scoreboard for five frames. In four starts in July, Carrasco has given up three runs, 24 hits and seven walks with 20 strikeouts in 22.1 innings. While he was inefficient in throwing only 55 of 92 pitches for strikes, it was still a serviceable performance. The 35-year-old right-hander now has a 4.07 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 101:28 K:BB through 104 innings in 19 starts. He's tentatively lined up for a road start in Miami next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Quiets Cubs in win
Carrasco (10-4) allowed five hits and two walks with six strikeouts across six shutout innings to earn the win Thursday over the Cubs.
The Mets took the lead in the first inning, and Carrasco's strong pitching kept the Cubs from keeping up. This was the right-hander's first quality start since June 17, though he fell just one out short in each of his first two outings of July. Thursday marked the fourth time he's kept runs off the board in 18 starts overall, and Carrasco finished the first half of the season with a 4.27 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 100:26 K:BB across 99 innings....

Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Battles for no-decision Saturday
Carrasco did not factor in the decision against Miami on Saturday, pitching 5.2 innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five.
It wasn't an easy outing for Carrasco -- he gave up seven hits (including three that went for extra bases) and retired the side in order in only one frame -- but he was able to keep Miami off the scoreboard through five innings. However, the Marlins finally got to him in the sixth when four straight hitters reached base with one out, leading to the veteran hurler's removal. Carrasco ended up being charged for two total runs, but he emerged with a no-decision. After struggling mightily in his final two starts in June, Carrasco has allowed just three earned runs over 11.1 frames while striking out 13 batters over his first two appearances in July....

Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Strikes out eight in win
Carrasco (9-4) gave up one earned run on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over 5.2 innings to earn the win in a 4-1 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.
Carrasco's effective start on 102 pitches was enough to earn him his ninth win of the year, which is tied for second best in the majors. Playing for the Mets has certainly helped Carrasco's case this season, as his 4.64 ERA and 1.33 WHIP are nothing to write home about. He had come into the game going through a rough patch, having given up 19 earned runs over his previous four starts. The 35-year-old veteran will look for continued offensive support to pick up his 10th win of the year his next time out against Miami.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Roughed up in loss
Carrasco (8-4) took the loss Tuesday against Houston, allowing six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four in 4.1 innings.
Houston got off to a great start against Carrasco, scoring four times in the first inning with the big blow being Kyle Tucker's three-run blast. He allowed a baserunner in both the second and third but was able to induce inning-ending double plays both times. The Astros tacked on another run in the fourth and, after allowing a one-out single in the fifth, Carrasco was removed. It has been a rough couple of weeks for the 35-year-old as he's allowed 19 runs and seven homers in 17.2 innings over his last four starts.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Listed as Tuesday's starter
The Mets list Carrasco (back) as their starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Astros in New York, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco's inclusion on the pitching schedule for the two-game set against Houston suggests he was able to throw a bullpen session over the weekend without incident. The right-hander exited his most recent start Wednesday -- also against the Astros, but in Houston -- due to lower-back tightness, but an MRI didn't reveal anything too concerning. Carrasco shouldn't face any major restrictions with his workload when he returns to the mound Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Likely to make next start
Manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Carrasco (back) will likely make his next turn through the rotation, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Carrasco exited Wednesday's start against Houston due to lower-back tightness, but Showalter didn't sound concerned about the issue Friday. The right-hander will presumably be monitored in the coming days, but he lines up to make his next start at home against the Astros early next week as long as he's cleared to pitch.... See More ...

Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Heading for MRI
Carrasco is scheduled to undergo an MRI after leaving Wednesday's start against the Astros with lower-back tightness, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
The veteran right-hander lasted only 2.1 frames before being lifted from Wednesday's contest, and his availability going forward is now in question. It's an encouraging sign Carrasco will travel with the team to Miami rather than return to New York to be evaluated, but his outlook will remain up in the air until the MRI results are announced....

Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Departs with apparent injury
Carrasco was removed from his start Wednesday against the Astros in the third inning with a possible injury, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Before Carrasco was pulled from the contest, he was visited on the mound by both manager Buck Showalter and a team trainer, so it isn't entirely clear if his departure was linked to an injury or poor performance. The right-hander was in the midst of a rough outing, as he served up five runs on four hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks while striking out two over 2.1 innings. Reliever Yoan Lopez recorded the final two outs of the bottom of the third.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Managing lower back tightness
Carrasco exited Wednesday's start against the Astros due to lower-back tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Carrasco was removed from Wednesday's matchup by a trainer and manager Buck Showalter, and the right-hander is dealing with a lower-back issue. It's not yet clear whether the injury will lead to a trip to the IL, but he tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Astros next Wednesday if he's deemed healthy enough to pitch....

Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Fans seven in eighth win
Carrasco (8-2) picked up the win in Friday's 10-4 victory over the Marlins, giving up three runs on eight hits and two walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out seven.
The veteran right-hander tossed 98 pitches (70 strikes) en route to his fifth quality start of the season, and his fifth win in his last six outings. Carrasco has also re-discovered his old strikeout form, posting a 40:9 K:BB through 34 innings over that six-start stretch despite a lackluster 4.24 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. With the Mets' rotation still beset by injuries, Carrasco has emerged as arguably the team's most reliable arm -- a remarkable turnaround for a 35-year-old who hasn't reached triple-digit innings in a season since 2018....

Carrasco (7-2) took the loss during Saturday's 11-6 defeat at the hands of the Angels, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in 4.2 innings.
Carrasco was hit hard for the fourth time this season, permitting multiple runs in the first and fifth innings to fall in line for the loss. The 35-year-old has now surrendered four or more runs in four starts, though he's kept opposing offenses to two runs or fewer in his other eight turns. Carrasco carries a 3.93 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into his next start, scheduled to come next weekend against Miami.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Fans 10 in win
Carrasco (7-1) earned the win over San Diego on Monday, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 over seven innings.
Carrasco walked five batters in five innings in his previous start, so it was nice to see him display much better control Monday. The veteran also struck out a season-high 10 batters and registered 19 swinging strikes to help him win his sixth straight decision. Carrasco has bounced back nicely from a rough 2021 season, as he is tied for the league lead with seven victories while compiling a 3.52 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 61:13 K:BB across 64 innings. He's expected to make his next start on the road against the slumping Angels on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Pitches around lack of control
Carrasco (6-1) allowed four hits and five walks with five strikeouts in five shutout innings, earning the win Wednesday versus the Nationals.
Carrasco showed an unusual lack of control, but the Nationals' offense wasn't able to punish him for it. This was the right-hander's fifth win in his last six starts since the beginning of May, though he hasn't completed six innings in his last four outings. He's at a 3.63 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 51:13 K:BB through 57 innings in 10 starts overall. Carrasco projects for a tougher road start versus the Padres next week.... See More ... See Less

Carrasco (5-1) picked up the win in Friday's 8-6 victory over the Phillies, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings. He struck out seven.
The veteran right-hander took a shutout into the sixth inning after being staked to an early 7-0 lead, but Carrasco nearly squandered it in a disastrous sixth. He got the hook after 85 pitches (59 strikes), and he's now failed to last a full six innings in three straight starts. Carrasco will carry a 3.98 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 46:8 K:BB into his next outing.... See More ... See Less

Carrasco (4-1) picked up the win in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, allowing one run on seven hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out four without walking a batter.
The veteran right-hander gave up some hits in Coors Field, but only one went for extra bases and he was able to limit the damage. Carrasco tossed 87 pitches (61 strikes) before exiting, and he'll carry a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 39:7 K:BB through 46.1 innings into his next start. Aside from an eight-run blowup in late April, Carrasco has been excellent all season, something that's been especially beneficial for the Mets with Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer injured....
