Carrasco (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.
Carrasco recently threw a six-inning simulated game, so it appears as though he's built up to a starter's workload. However, the right-hander will no longer make his scheduled rehab start Sunday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Carrasco hasn't experienced a setback, but he's just progressing slower than anticipated, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. As a result, the team will elect to have him keep building up rather than rushing him into major-league game action.
Carrasco (hamstring) is scheduled to make a rehab start Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Carrasco threw a six-inning simulated game Tuesday, so it appears as though he's built up to a starter's workload. The Mets could conceivably adjust their plans and bring Carrasco back to the big-league roster ahead of schedule given that Jacob deGrom is battling side tightness, but there's been no indication yet that they're considering such a move.
Carrasco (hamstring) tossed a six-inning simulated game at the Mets' spring facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla. on Tuesday, Michael Mayer of MetsMerizedOnline.com reports.
According to Mayer, Carrasco sported a fastball that peaked at 96 miles per hour and showcased good late life on his secondary offerings. Tuesday's outing was expected to be Carrasco's final rehab appearance, so assuming the Mets have similarly favorable reviews for the right-hander, he could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list as soon as Sunday. However, since staff ace Jacob deGrom is tentatively scheduled to start that day's game against the Diamondbacks, the Mets are more likely to wait until next week to integrate Carrasco into the rotation.
Carrasco (hamstring) threw five innings in a game at the Mets' spring training facility Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco's season has been disrupted by first elbow and then hamstring issues, but he appears to be almost ready to return. The Mets are aiming for him to return in the second week of May, so he's expected to make one more rehab start, which could come on the first day of the minor-league season Tuesday.
Carrasco (hamstring) through four innings in a scrimmage Saturday and is on track to return sometime in the second week of May, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Carrasco strained his hamstring while doing conditioning work in mid-March. He was given a 6-to-8 week timetable at the time and appears to still be on track. If he can stay healthy once he's back in game action, he'll be a big help to the Mets, as he cruised to a 2.91 ERA and a 29.3 percent strikeout rate last year. The hamstring issue is already his second injury of the season, however, as he'd previously dealt with elbow soreness earlier in camp.
Carrasco (hamstring) is stretched out to four innings on the mound, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco is still considered week-to-week, but he's expected to fly to the team's alternate training site soon to begin fielding work. The right-hander could pitch five innings during a simulated game for his next throwing session. Carrasco was expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks after he was diagnosed with a torn right hamstring in mid-March, and he appears to be on the right track in his recovery process.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said Carrasco (hamstring) threw two innings Sunday in a simulated game at the team's spring-training facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla., Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rojas indicated that Carrasco made use of his full repertoire in the 30-pitch outing, an encouraging sign of where the right-hander stands in his recovery from a torn right hamstring. Carrasco was projected to miss 6-to-8 weeks at the time he received his diagnosis March 18, and while that timeline is seemingly still in place, he looks to be trending closer to six weeks of total recovery time at this point.
Manager Luis Rojas said Friday that Carrasco (hamstring) threw live batting practice earlier this week and is considered week-to-week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The 34-year-old is progressing well in his recovery from a torn right hamstring, and he may even be ahead of schedule after being ruled out six weeks in mid-March. Carrasco could be ready to pitch in at the start of May or a bit earlier if he advances quickly to throwing simulated games.
Carrasco (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco isn't expected to return to game action before the start of May, but he recently started a throwing program and is doing well. Joey Lucchesi will serve as the fifth starter for the Mets while Carrasco is sidelined.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said Monday that Carrasco (hamstring) has begun a throwing program and is doing well, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco has had a difficult spring, dealing with elbow soreness and then straining his hamstring while doing conditioning work. His timeline isn't entirely clear, but he's not expected back before the start of May. Joey Lucchesi will start the season in the rotation in his absence.
Carrasco (hamstring) will be out until at least late April, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco was diagnosed with a torn hamstring Thursday and the team plans to proceed carefully to avoid setbacks. While no official timetable has been laid out, Carrasco could miss 6-8 weeks, with his absence stretching into May. The injury figures to lock David Peterson into a rotation role to begin the season, with Jordan Yamamoto and Joey Lucchesi vying for the final spot.
Carrasco's hamstring injury was officially classified as a tear Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco injured his hamstring in a bullpen session earlier in the day. No timeline has officially been announced, though DiComo noted that the team "will need to take things slowly to ensure a full recovery without setbacks." It's now a near certainty that Carrasco won't be ready for Opening Day, and the injury could force him out beyond that milestone as well. The injury should open a path for David Peterson and Joey Lucchesi to begin the campaign in the rotation, though Jordan Yamamoto is also competing for a role.
Carrasco strained his right hamstring while doing conditioning work following Thursday's bullpen session, according to SNY's game broadcast.
The team hasn't yet announced any further details about the injury, which came after a successful live bullpen session in the morning for Carrasco, who had been dealing with soreness in his right elbow. He's headed for an MRI, but regardless of his test results, it's now highly probable that Carrasco won't be ready for Opening Day, creating a temporary opening in the Mets' rotation.
Carrasco (elbow) is expected to be ready for his first turn in the rotation, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco hasn't yet pitched in a Grapefruit League game as he builds up cautiously due to elbow soreness. He threw a 20-pitch simulated game Thursday and should be ready to face another team soon. Opening Day is just two weeks away, so it would be somewhat surprising if he were ready to throw 100 pitches in his first regular-season start, but he should be built up to the point that he can throw a meaningful number of innings right away if he gets through the rest of the month without setbacks.
Carrasco (elbow) threw a simulated game Thursday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Carrasco has yet to make his spring debut as he works through a spell of elbow soreness. He's been building up in his throwing progression, advancing from catch to bullpens to a simulated game, so Grapefruit League action should be on tap soon. Time is getting tight for him to be fully ramped up by Opening Day, but it remains possible that he breaks camp on the active roster.
Carrasco (elbow) completed an 18-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Limited to throwing long toss off flat ground in recent days while he contends with right elbow soreness, Carrasco took a step forward in his recovery program by graduating to mound work. Assuming he came out of the bullpen session without any setbacks, Carrasco will face live batters in a simulated game Thursday. That activity would likely mark the final step before Carrasco rejoins the Mets' Grapefruit League pitching schedule.
Carrasco (elbow) threw from 75 feet Sunday and will throw from 90-to-120 feet Monday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
A short bullpen session could follow for the 33-year-old as he continues to work his way back from a bout of right elbow soreness. Carrasco hopes to be ready for Opening Day, and his progress this week should provide a strong indication of whether or not that hope can be a reality.
Carrasco (elbow) will play catch Sunday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Carrasco has been dealing with an elbow issue, one of the more worrying things for a pitcher to go through, though this particular case hasn't been called anything worse than "soreness." He's only been backed off slightly from his throwing program, as he's ready to at least play catch within a few days of when he was first shut down. If he gets through Sunday's session without issues he could get back on a mound soon, but his readiness for Opening Day could be at risk even in that best-case scenario with the start of the season less than three weeks away. He hadn't gotten into any game action this spring before the elbow issue popped up.
Carrasco (elbow) is doing some solo running drills Saturday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Carrasco continues to be brought along slowly due to elbow soreness. Assuming he feels good after his running drills Saturday, the right-hander is scheduled to play catch Sunday and could progress to bullpens and live batting practice after that. It's not yet clear whether Carrasco's injury will impact his availability for Opening Day.
Carrasco (elbow) hopes to resume playing catch Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Carrasco has been shut down recently after reporting elbow soreness, but he hasn't sounded too concerned about the issue. Manager Luis Rojas said that he could resume throwing Sunday, and the Mets are hopeful that the right-hander will be able to face hitters next week. Even if he plays catch Sunday, Carrasco will still need time to build up ahead of Opening Day, so it's not yet clear whether he'll be available to begin the year.
