  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Skipping minor-league outing

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said that Carrasco won't make his scheduled minor-league start Thursday due to "elbow maintenance," Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    The Mets don't seem to be even considering this an injury, as Carrasco is slated to make a minor-league start next Tuesday instead. The situation is an odd one, but Carrasco's elbow typically gives him a little trouble every spring. Barring any setbacks, fantasy managers should continue drafting him as they normally would. Carrasco holds a 4.15 ERA and 14:2 K:BB over 13 innings this spring.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Whiffs seven in Friday's outing

    Carrasco gave up one run on two hits and a walk over four innings in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins. He struck out seven.

    It's the first time in four spring starts Carrasco didn't serve up a homer, which might be a more encouraging sign than the strikeouts -- even if it did come against a Miami lineup containing few regulars. The veteran right-hander worked up to 57 pitches (41 strikes) and has an impressive 14:2 K:BB through 13 Grapefruit League innings. Carrasco should get in one more spring start before Opening Day, when he'll be the No. 3 or No. 4 starter in the Mets' rotation.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Erratic outing against Rays

    Carrasco gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits over four innings in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays. He struck out four without walking a batter.

    The K's were encouraging, but Carrasco also served up two homers -- one to top Tampa prospect Kyle Manzardo, and the other to 26-year-old minor leaguer Niko Hulsizer. Carrasco has now given up four homers through nine spring innings to go with a solid 7:1 K:BB, but as yet there's little cause for concern with the veteran right-hander.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Has 2023 option picked up

    The Mets exercised Carrasco's $14 million club option for 2023 on Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Carrasco produced a 3.97 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 152:41 K:BB across 152 innings for New York in 2022, leading the organization to pick up his option for next year. The veteran right-hander will provide some stability for the Mets' rotation with Jacob deGrom, Taijuan Walker and Chris Bassitt entering free agency.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Left off wild-card roster

    Carrasco wasn't included on the Mets' roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Padres on Friday, Deesha Thosar of Fox Sports reports.

    Carrasco posted a 4.21 ERA in six starts after returned from the injured list in early September, and he unsurprisingly isn't among New York's top-three rotation options for the wild-card series. The 35-year-old isn't guaranteed to be added to the roster later on should the Mets advance with Taijuan Walker and Trevor Williams also in the mix to start in a longer series.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: No-decision in short outing

    Carrasco didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out three.

    With the playoffs looming and the Mets having squandered their chance to win the NL East, Carrasco got an early hook to give him some extra rest. The veteran righty tossed 73 pitches (51 strikes) and left with New York ahead 4-2, missing his chance to collect his 16th win of the season. He'll wrap up a bounceback campaign with a 3.97 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 152:41 K:BB through 152 innings.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Scheduled start gets rained out

    Carrasco won't start Monday's game against the Nationals as the game has been postponed due to rain, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    DiComo notes that the two teams will play a doubleheader Tuesday, but the Mets have yet to reveal their pitching plans for the twin bill. Carrasco will be a strong candidate to start one of Tuesday's matchups.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Downed by Marlins

    Carrasco (15-7) took the loss Tuesday as the Mets fell 6-4 to the Marlins, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk over three innings. He struck out two.

    The veteran right-hander didn't have his best stuff, and with the Mets now in a dogfight for the NL East title with Atlanta, manager Buck Showalter gave Carrasco the hook after 67 pitches (41 strikes). He's now failed to go past four innings in either of his last two starts, and fatigue could well be a factor for the 35-year-old -- he hadn't thrown more than 85 innings across all levels in a season since 2018, but Carrasco's now up to 148 IP in 2022. He's scheduled to make one more start in the final series of the season next week against the Nationals.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Ineffective against Brewers

    Carrasco tossed four innings, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four in Tuesday's win over the Brewers. He did factor into the decision.

    Carrasco didn't have his best stuff Tuesday, surrendering three runs in the second inning on four hits and a walk. He was able to follow up the difficult frame with two scoreless innings before being removed from the contest after the fourth. The poor outing snapped a two-game quality start streak for the right-hander. Since returning from the 15-day injured list Sept. 4, Carrasco has produced a 2.89 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 23 strikeouts over 18.2 frames in four starts.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Fans 11 in win

    Carrasco (15-6) earned the victory Thursday against the Pirates, striking out 11 in six innings while allowing a run on four hits and two walks.

    Carrasco struck out eight batters in the first three innings on his way to fanning a season-high 11, and he finished the outing by retiring the last eight batters he faced. The veteran right-hander has allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his last 10 starts, compiling a 2.12 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and a 62:16 K:BB in 59.1 innings in that span. His next start will likely be in the middle of next week in Milwaukee.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Allows one run in win

    Carrasco (14-6) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on four hits over six innings against the Marlins. He struck out six.

    Carrasco allowed an RBI double by Garrett Cooper to put the Marlins up 1-0 but was otherwise unscored upon. The righty has been shutting opponents down in his last 10 games with a solid 2.19 ERA over 53.1 innings. The 35-year-old's 3.80 ERA in 2022 is a nice bounce-back from his 6.04 ERA in 53.2 innings during 2021.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Chased early in loss

    Carrasco (13-6) took the loss Sunday, allowing five runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks over 2.2 innings against the Nationals. He struck out two.

    The 35-year-old's return from an oblique injury did not go as planned as he surrendered a run on a double and a single to start the game. He got through the second inning with relative ease but ran into trouble again in the third after a one-out single and a costly Jeff McNeil throwing error snowballed into four runs, all of which were unearned, and led to him being pulled from the game after throwing 54 pitches. Carrasco will take a 3.91 ERA into his next start.
