Nothing better than an alliteration on a Wednesday afternoon, especially one that may help us feel a little better about the whole Cliff Lee trade situation. In due time, anyway…
Anthony Castrovince reports that Carlos Carrasco (along with Lou Marson) will be in Cleveland come September. Had Jason Donald not hit the shelf with back spasms, we may have seen him as well to get a head start on Operation “Let’s hope Shapiro knows something we don’t.”
As DP mentioned yesterday, Carrasco recently took his first loss with the Clippers following a wave of solid outings. Carrasco has now made five starts, going 4-1 with a 3.57 ERA/0.93 WHIP across 35.1 innings. He has allowed 27 hits, walked only six batters while fanning 33. Not too shabby.
For an update on the rest of the Triple-A possible call-ups, make sure you catch DP’s latest. Others that Indians fans will see come the fall are likely to be Jordan Brown, Jose Veras and perhaps Hector Rondon – who started the season with the Arkon Aeros in Double-A. Carrasco and Rondon: the rotation of the future, ladies and gentlemen. Just not as far in the future as you may think.
