Carrasco Leaves Game on Cart After Line Drive Hits Him

Tuesday, April 14

The Cleveland Indians tweeted injury updates following the game:

Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100 described the scene during the game:

Karl Ravech of ESPN added:

Carrasco only started 14 games for the Indians last season, but over the campaign’s final two months, he was one of baseball’s best pitchers (1.70 ERA in 10 starts). The team had big expectations for him coming into 2015, signing him to a four-year, $22 million contract just before the season began. 

After this scary incident, the main focus will be on Carrasco‘s health and well-being. Losing Carrasco for any period of time would be a huge setback for Cleveland.
