Carrasco to have Tommy John surgery
Carrasco, 24, had been on the disabled list for right elbow inflammation, an injury which originally occurred back in May. He returned from the injury after a few weeks only to have the discomfort return and go back on the disabled list in early August. In 21 starts for the Indians this year he went 8-9 with a 4.62 ERA, and in 124.2 innings allowed 130 hits, 40 walks, and had 85 strikeouts.
