  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Gets NRI from Cleveland

    Carrasco (finger) signed a minor-league contract with the Guardians on Saturday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Carrasco pitched for Cleveland between 2009-20 and will return for his second stint with the franchise after three years with the Mets. Carrasco put up a 6.80 ERA and 1.70 WHIP through 90 innings across 20 starts last season, and his campaign was cut short in September by a fractured finger. Given the strength of Cleveland's rotation, it's unlikely the 36-year-old lands a starting job, but he could operate as a multi-inning reliever for the big-league club if he turns in a solid spring.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Suffers fractured finger

    Carrasco was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a fracture of his right fifth finger and is expected to be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, Pat Ragazzo of reports.

    Carrasco had been listed as the probable starter for Wednesday's series finale at Washington, but the Mets will now have to pivot after the veteran right-hander fractured the pinky on his throwing hand Sunday in a weight room incident. It'll be a season-ending setback for Carrasco, who finishes with an ugly 6.80 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 66:38 K:BB across 90 innings (20 starts) with New York. He is scheduled to become a free agent in November.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Clears waivers, stays in New York

    Carrasco will remain with the Mets after going unclaimed ahead of Thursday's waiver deadline, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Carrasco drew no interest from other teams after being placed on waivers by the Mets on Tuesday. There's a still a chunk of money remaining on his $14 million salary for 2023 and he's posted a rough 6.80 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 90 innings (20 starts) this season with New York. The 36-year-old right-hander is set to become a free agent in November.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Could pitch in relief Wednesday

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said that Carrasco will be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    Showalter's comments come one day after Carrasco was placed on waivers, but he'll remain active and available for the Mets until another team claims him. Given that Carrasco is owed the money remaining on his $14 million salary for 2023 and has pitched to a 6.80 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 90 innings this season, he may not attract much interest, even for pitching-needy clubs in playoff contention. Showalter hasn't clarified whether Carrasco's move to the bullpen is a permanent one, so the veteran right-hander could conceivably make a start this weekend versus Seattle if he doesn't get claimed and if he isn't needed in relief Wednesday.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Placed on waivers

    The Mets placed Carrasco on waivers Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Carrasco can be scooped up by another team with a simple waiver claim, if that team is willing to cover what remains of his $14 million salary for the 2023 season. The veteran right-hander has struggled to a 6.80 ERA and 66:38 K:BB through 90 innings (20 starts) in his age-36 campaign.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Struggles continue Saturday

    Carrasco dropped to 3-8 in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Angels, allowing five runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out one batter over 1.2 innings.

    Carrasco didn't have a great first inning, but he escaped having yielded just one run. Things got much worse for him in the second, when the Angels racked up five hits -- including two doubles, a triple and a homer -- and scored four runs before he could get three outs. Carrasco was pulled having gone a season-low 1.2 frames, and Saturday marked the eighth time on the campaign he's given up at least five runs in an outing. The veteran's season ERA now stands at an unsightly 6.80, and it's even worse at 10.24 over 29 innings since the All-Star break.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Hit hard in short start

    Carrasco (3-9) took the loss Sunday against the Cardinals after allowing three runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out three in four innings.

    Carrasco got through four innings allowing just one run but gave up a double to Alec Burleson and a homer to Paul Goldschmidt to open up the fifth which abruptly ended his day. Sunday was the second straight start Carrasco has failed to reach five innings and his fifth overall over his last seven starts. Since blanking the Diamondbacks over eight innings July 6, Carrasco has given up 31 runs (29 earned) in 27.1 innings, which is good for a 9.22 ERA to go with a 2.16 WHIP. He'll try to turn things around in his next start when the Angels come to town this coming weekend.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Inefficient in no-decision

    Carrasco did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over three innings in a 7-2 win over the Pirates. He struck out five.

    Carrasco's now allowed two runs in each of his last two starts after struggling to a 12.33 ERA over his previous four outings. However, the veteran right-hander made it through only three innings Monday after throwing 88 pitches. Overall, Carrasco is 3-6 with a 6.40 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 62:38 K:BB across 18 starts (84.1 innings) this season. He's currently lined up to face the Cardinals on the road in his next start.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Solid in no-decision

    Carrasco did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over five innings against the Cubs. He struck out five.

    Outside of a Cody Bellinger solo shot in the fourth inning and a run-scoring double by Yan Gomes in the fifth, Carrasco pitched well Tuesday and left the game with the score tied 2-2. The veteran hurler struggled in his previous four outings, allowing 21 earned runs in 15.1 innings with just nine strikeouts during that stretch. Carrasco is projected to face a tough Atlanta lineup over the weekend.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Lit up again

    Carrasco (3-6) took the loss Thursday, allowing six runs on eight hits and one walk over six innings against the Royals.

    Carrasco allowed one run in the first inning but really began to struggle with his command in the third, when he gave up a leadoff single, threw a wild pitch and then surrendered a homer to Bobby Witt. He would give up another three runs in the seventh after allowing back-to-back singles to open the frame, followed by a three-run shot from Drew Waters. The 36-year-old right-hander has now allowed six runs in back-to-back starts and at least four runs in four straight. He also failed to record a strikeout Thursday for the first time this season.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Rattled by Nats

    Carrasco (3-5) took the loss Saturday as the Mets were downed 11-6 by the Nationals, coughing up eight runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk over 2.1 innings. He struck out two.

    It was another early exit for the veteran right-hander, who has thrown only 9.1 innings over his last three starts while getting hammered for 24 hits and 15 runs. The Mets are cleaning house at the trade deadline, and Carrasco is in the final year of his contract, but it's hard to imagine a contender showing much interest in the 36-year-old given his 6.40 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 52:32 K:BB through 70.1 innings on the season. If he remains with the club past Tuesday, his next start would likely come next weekend in Baltimore.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Coughs up five runs

    Carrasco (3-4) yielded five runs on 10 hits and two walks over 2.1 innings Sunday, striking out two and taking a loss against Boston.

    The Red Sox caught fire in the third inning, poking six straight hits against Carrasco and forcing him out of the game after just 58 pitches. In his final three starts before the All-Star break, he gave up just four runs in 17 frames. However, he's been charged with nine runs over seven innings since then. The veteran righty has watched his season ERA balloon to 5.82 with a 50:31 K:BB through 14 starts. Carrasco's next outing is currently lined up to be at home against the Nationals.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Can't take advantage of run support

    Carrasco didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 11-10 win over the White Sox, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out five.

    The Mets staked Carrasco to a 5-0 lead after the first inning and added three more runs before he left the mound, but the veteran right-hander couldn't stick around long enough to qualify for the win. He got the hook after 82 pitches (50 strikes), failing to complete five innings for the fourth time in his last six starts. Carrasco has a 4.60 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 25:14 K:BB through 29.1 innings over that stretch, and he's a risky play even as a streaming option given his inability to pitch deep into games. His next outing lines up for a weekend tilt in Boston.
