Carlos Carrasco is still in a Cleveland Indians uniform and the fans are wondering why. Carrasco has had more chances to become a starting pitching in the Indians rotation than any other guy the fans can remember. For some reason Indians manager, Terry Francona continues to give Carrasco a shot at being a major league pitcher.
He started him against the San Francisco Giants last night and once again Carlos showed he is not ready for prime time. Carrasco pitched for 6 innings, and as the fans suspected, he was hammered for 4 runs on 5 hits. The Indians continue to believe in Carrasco and the fans are starting to wonder why.
Carrasco hasn’t been very good in an Indians uniform. Yet Tito continues to show patients with him. What is it that Francona and pitching coach Mickey Callaway see that others don’t?
The Indians need to have solid pitching in their starting rotation and there is something between Carrasco’s ears that is stopping him from becoming a big league starter.
He came out of the bull-pen last season and was somewhat successful as a middle reliever. Why doesn’t the Indians manager use him as a reliever and move on from this failed Carrasco as a starter experiment already?
If Cleveland is going to contend for a play-off spot this season, they have to do something with Carrassco. The Tribe can’t continue to let this guy lose games for this team….
