Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners optioned Carasiti to Triple-A Tacoma after Saturday's 8-1 win over the Tigers.

Carasiti's demotion clears a spot on the active roster for Hunter Strickland (lat), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Sunday's series finale. The right-hander's first stint in the big leagues since 2016 lasted just over a month, with Carasiti giving up six runs (five earned) on 11 hits and five walks over 9.2 innings.

Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Confirmed as opener Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti will serve as the Mariners' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

The rookie has worked exactly one inning in each of his prior four turns as an opener and will likely be on tap for a similar workload in the series finale. Once Carasiti exits, lefty Wade LeBlanc will enter the contest and cover the bulk of the innings in relief.

Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Working as opener again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti will work as the Mariners' opening pitcher for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Seattle has deployed Carasiti ahead of either Wade LeBlanc or Tommy Milone three times this season, with the right-hander giving up one run across three one-inning outings. He'll likely work the top of the first inning before turning the game over to Milone.

Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Gives up solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti worked one inning in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Cardinals, giving up a run on two hits while notching a strikeout.

Working as the Mariners' opening pitcher for the third time in his four outings at the big-league level, Carasiti put the Mariners in an early hole by serving up a solo home run to Jose Martinez. Fortunately for Carasiti, the Seattle offense was able to pick him up while bulk reliever Wade LeBlanc and the rest of the bullpen limited the Cardinals' bats for the rest of the night.

Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Opening again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti will serve as the opener in Tuesday's interleague series opener against the Cardinals.

Carasiti most recently filled the role against the Astros on Saturday, firing a scoreless first inning in that appearance. The right-hander has yet to allow a run over his first three outings since his callup June 23, a solid start he'll look to extend against a light-hitting St. Louis squad.

Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Wiggles out of trouble as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti served as the opener in an extra-inning loss to the Astros on Friday and allowed two hits over a scoreless first inning. He also recorded a strikeout.

Carasiti worked up to 24 pitches due to allowing a couple of singles in the opening frame, but he ultimately escaped by coaxing an inning-ending popup from Yuli Gurriel. The right-hander has now contributed a trio of scoreless efforts since being called up last Sunday, and he'll likely shuttle between opener and traditional reliever during his stay with the big-league club.

Mariners' Matt Carasiti: Named opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti will serve as the opener for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Carasiti will cover the first one or two innings Wednesday before giving way to Wade LeBlanc, who is slated to handle the majority of work. In his lone appearance for the Mariners this season, Carasiti allowed just one hit while striking out three batters across a scoreless inning of relief.

Mariners' Matthew Carasiti: Contract selected by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti's contract was selected by the Mariners on Sunday.

Carasiti joined the Cubs on a minor-league deal over the offseason but was released in early June despite a strong 2.67 ERA in 27 innings for Triple-A Iowa. He'll give the Mariners an option out of the bullpen and will be looking to lower his career 9.19 ERA, recorded in a 15.2-inning stint for the Rockies back in 2016.

Matthew Carasiti: Let go by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti was released by Chicago on Friday, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports.

Carasiti spent the 2018 campaign in Japan, and despite posting a 2.67 ERA with 23 punchouts over 27 innings this season with Triple-A Iowa, the Cubs have elected to part ways with the right-hander. He last appeared in the big leagues during the 2016 season with Colorado, accruing a 9.19 ERA and 2.30 WHIP with a 17:11 K:BB through 15.2 frames.

Cubs' Matthew Carasiti: Returns from Japan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Thursday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Carasiti has returned stateside after pitching in Japan in 2018. The 27-year-old spent time as a starter and reliever for the Yakult Swallows, posting a 4.18 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 73:43 K:BB in 94.2 innings. Carasiti will likely serve as organizational pitching depth in 2019.

Matthew Carasiti: To pitch in Japan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti received his release from the Cubs on Friday and will sign with the Yakult Swallows in Japan, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

His only experience in the majors came in 2016 when he had a 9.19 ERA in 15.2 innings with the Rockies. The 26-year-old righty notched a 3.26 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 68 strikeouts in 49.2 innings at Triple-A last season.

Cubs' Matthew Carasiti: Added to 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti was added to the Cubs' 40-man roster Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Carasiti turned in a 3.26 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 68:23 K:BB in 49.2 innings between Triple-A Iowa and Triple-A Albuquerque last season. While he didn't appear in the majors in 2017, Carasiti registered a 9.19 ERA, 2.30 WHIP and 17:11 K:BB across 15.2 innings with the Rockies in 2016. He'll look to compete for a bullpen spot in 2018.

June 26, 2017 09:28 PM
Cubs' Matthew Carasiti: Dealt to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti was traded to the Cubs on Monday in exchange for lefty reliever Zac Rosscup.

Carasiti got rocked during a 19-games stint in the majors last season, as he allowed a 9.19 ERA and 2.30 WHIP over just 15.2 innings of work. He has bounced back at Triple-A, though, where he owns a 2.37 ERA with 43 strikeouts over just 30.1 innings of relief this season. The Cubs will take a flyer on him as they add right-handed organizational depth to their bullpen.

Rockies' Matthew Carasiti: Reassigned to minor league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday.

The Rockies trimmed their roster down with three moves Saturday. Carasiti inked a minor league contract with the organization this offseason and made five appearances in spring training, notching four strikeouts and four walks while allowing one run over 4.2 innings. He figures to slot into the bullpen at Triple-A Albuquerque when the season gets underway.

December 14, 2016 01:50 PM
Rockies' Matthew Carasiti: Inks minor league deal with Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti signed a minor league deal with the Rockies on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

The 25-year-old righty gave up 16 earned runs in 15.2 innings out of the Rockies' bullpen last season, but the organization likes his long-term potential enough to bring him back to big league camp. He will compete for a low-leverage role.

December 2, 2016 09:04 PM
Matthew Carasiti: Non-tendered by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti was non-tendered by the Rockies on Friday, making him a free agent.

Carasiti hit a wall at the major league level in 2016, going from a 1.96 ERA in 46 innings between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque to a 9.19 ERA in 15.2 innings with the Rockies. His results were apparently poor enough the Rockies decided he wasn't worth a roster spot, so he'll go looking for a team needing bullpen depth and willing to give him another shot at big league innings.

September 15, 2016 04:20 PM
Rockies' Matthew Carasiti: Struggling at major league level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti possesses a 13.50 ERA and 3.09 WHIP in 10.1 innings of relief this season.

Carasiti was an outstanding reliever in the minors this year, but it seems like his stuff isn't fooling big league hitters whatsoever. Although opposing teams are having no problem scoring off of him, the right-hander does sport a solid 9.3 K/9 during his major league tenure. The 25-year-old managed to stay in Colorado thanks to rosters expanding at the start of September, but he'll have to figure out how to get batters out beyond the strikeout if he wants to vie for a spot in the bullpen next season.

August 12, 2016 04:12 PM
Rockies' Matthew Carasiti: Called up by Rockies Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carasiti had his contract selected by the Rockies and will join the team in Philadelphia on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Carasiti has pitched really well this season in his time between Double-A and Triple-A, collecting a 1.96 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with 48 strikeouts in 46 innings. The 25-year-old will join a bullpen that has really struggled over the past week. Carasiti won't be a candidate to pitch in the late inning of games, but if his success from the minors translates to the big leagues, he could shoot up the bullpen grid quickly.
