  • 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.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Lasts just four innings

    Carrasco (1-4) allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out three over four innings as he took the loss to the Brewers on Sunday.

    Carrasco struggled off the bat, as the Brewers got to him in the first on a two-run home run from Willy Adames. Three more runs would then end up scoring in the second on two walks, two base hits and an error. He would go on to toss a pair of scoreless innings afterward before his day was over. Sunday was the first time he's fallen short of reaching five innings since Aug. 15 when he gave up six runs in just two innings. Carrasco has now dropped back-to-back decisions and has allowed four walks in two of his last three starts. He owns a 5.73 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 45:16 K:BB over 48.2 innings this year. He's set for one more start next weekend against Atlanta.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: In line to start Sunday

    Carrasco (thumb) is listed as the Mets' probable pitcher for Sunday's game against the Brewers in Milwaukee.

    Carrasco had been in line to start Saturday, but because of a team off day Thursday, the Mets will be able to tinker with their pitching schedule. Though Carrasco looks like he'll be fine after he jammed his right thumb in his last outing Sept. 18 against the Phillies, he'll get an extra day to recover from the injury with Rich Hill flipping spots with the right-hander in the rotation. Over his last six starts, Carrasco has gone 1-2 with a 3.51 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 30:9 K:BB in 33.1 innings.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Won't miss start

    Carrasco's thumb is fine after he jammed it during his start Saturday against the Phillies, and he's expected to be back on the mound for his next turn in the rotation, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Carrasco hurt his thumb when fouling off a pitch at the plate and wound up leaving after 82 pitches. The issue isn't a significant one, however, so he's expected to return to the mound Saturday against the Brewers.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Managing thumb issue

    Carrasco (1-3) was removed from Saturday's start against the Phillies due to a right thumb injury, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. He took the loss after giving up two runs on five hits with five strikeouts and two walks across six innings.

    Carrasco suffered the injury when he fouled off a pitch while batting during the fifth inning, though he retook the mound and completed one more frame. The 34-year-old threw 56 of 82 pitches for strikes, and the only damage against him came via a pair of solo homers from Jean Segura. It's unclear if the thumb issue will affect Carrasco's next turn through the rotation, which lines up for next weekend at Milwaukee.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Solid versus Yankees

    Carrasco got a no-decision in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Yankees, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks with five strikeouts in five innings.

    Carrasco started Sunday's game in poor fashion, walking the first two Yankees and surrendering two runs in the opening frame. He settled down thereafter and was actually spotted a 4-2 lead after the second inning, but the teams went back and forth to eliminate Carrasco from being the pitcher of record. The 34-year-old has now permitted three runs or less in five straight starts and has a 3.62 ERA across 27.1 innings in the stretch.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Collects first win of 2021

    Carrasco (1-2) picked up the win in Tuesday's 9-4 victory over the Marlins, giving up four runs (one earned) on seven hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran right-hander didn't get much help from his defense and exited the game after 92 pitches (61 strikes) with the score tied 4-4, but the Mets made it up to him by taking the lead for good in the top of the sixth inning while Carrasco was still the pitcher of record. While his 5.88 ERA on the season looks ugly, he's lasted at least five innings in each of his last four starts, posting a 3.63 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 20:3 K:BB through 22.1 innings over that stretch.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Shakes off bumpy first inning

    Carrasco yielded three runs on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in Thursday's no-decision against the Marlins. He had five strikeouts.

    Miami pounced on Carrasco for a pair of runs in the first inning, including a Miguel Rojas leadoff homer, but the veteran righty settled in after that. He put up zeroes for the next four frames until running into trouble again in the sixth, and a third run was eventually charged to Carrasco when reliever Aaron Loup walked in an inherited runner. Carrasco (0-2) has a 6.59 ERA and is still looking for his first win as a Met after seven starts.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Wednesday's game postponed

    Carrasco won't start as scheduled Wednesday against the Marlins since the game was postponed due to expected inclement weather, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Heavy rain is in the forecast for the next 24-plus hours, so an early decision was made to postpone Wednesday's contest. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Sept. 28. Carrasco could simply have his start pushed to Thursday, though the Mets haven't announced their updated pitching plans.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Goes seven strong in no-decision

    Carrasco allowed two runs on three hits with five strikeouts in seven innings against the Giants on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Carrasco turned in the longest of his six starts this season, limiting San Francisco to a two-run homer from Kris Bryant in the first inning. Carrasco stymied the Giants the rest of the way in what was easily his most effective start since coming off the IL in late July. Thursday's outing lowered Carrasco's ERA from 8.82 to 6.94, although the 34-year-old is still searching for his first win as a Met.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Longest outing of season

    Carrasco (0-2) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Dodgers after allowing three runs on five hits and a walk while fanning six across five innings.

    Carrasco completed five innings for the first time this season and posted a season-high six strikeouts. However, it can't be ignored that Carrasco has now given up at least three runs in three straight games. The veteran hurler owns a dismal 8.82 ERA across five starts this season.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Beat up by Dodgers

    Carrasco (0-1) allowed six earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three across two innings, taking the loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Carrasco allowed three home runs in two innings. He has struggled in his four appearances this season and has given up 10 runs in his last three innings. The deepest he's been able to pitch is 4.1 innings. The 34-year-old has a 10.32 ERA and 1.85 WHIP with 12 strikeouts in 11.1 innings this season.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Start shortened by rain

    Carrasco was charged with four earned runs on four hits and a walk over one inning in his start Tuesday against the Nationals, a game in which the Mets won, 8-7, after the suspended contest was resumed Wednesday.

    Even if inclement weather Tuesday hadn't cut Carrasco's start short, he likely wouldn't have been asked to work much longer after needing 33 pitches to record the game's first three outs. He was at least spared his first loss of the season, as the Mets roared back from a three-run deficit to claim a comeback victory. Carrasco tentatively lines up to make his next start Sunday at home versus the Dodgers.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Lifted in fifth inning

    Carrasco allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out five across 4.1 innings Wednesday against the Marlins. He did not factor into the decision.

    Wednesday's start marked Carrasco's second of the season. He didn't build upon his workload much, as he threw only five more pitches and got one additional out as compared to his season debut. As for his actual performance, Carrasco held the Marlins scoreless through four innings but allowed three of the first four batters he faced to reach base to begin the fifth inning. He'll look to continue to build upon his length, though it's clear that Carrasco understandably remains rusty.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: No-decision in season debut

    Carrasco didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Reds, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out four.

    Jonathan India greeted Carrasco with a solo homer on the first pitch he threw, but after that it was fairly smooth sailing for the right-hander as he made his long-delayed Mets debut. He was removed after 58 pitches (35 strikes), not surprising given that he didn't throw more than three innings in any of his rehab starts, but it was a very encouraging beginning to his 2021 campaign. Expect Carrasco to get stretched out further in his next outing, making him at least a candidate to qualify for a win if he gets a little more run support.
