Carlos Luis Carrasco Bio Info

Full name CARLOS LUIS CARRASCO...Married, Karelis...One daughter Camila Valentina (3/4/11)…Attended Liceo Federico Carmona High School...Signed by Phillies as an amateur free agent, 11/25/03... 2013-14 TribeFest participant.


Split the season between the rotation and bullpen and was the most dominant pitcher in the American League over the last two months of the season (see box at right)...Was in the starting rotation out of spring training, April 5-25 (0-3, 6.95 E RA, 17E R/ 22.0IP ), and ended the season there with 10 dominant starts from August 10-Sept. 27, going 5-3 with a 1.30 ERA to end the season (69.0IP , 45H, 10E R, 1BB, 78K ) to form a powerful 1-2 p unch alongside Corey Kluber...His 1.30 ERA from Aug 10-end of season was the lowest in MLB over that span (min 9GS)...Became the first Indians pitcher since 1991 (Rod Nichols) to post a save and a shutout within the same season.


Following April rotation stint he went 3-1 with a save out of the bullpen, posting an ERA of 2.30 (43.0IP , 34H, 11E R, 9BB, 39K , .217 AVG ) from April 30-August 5...Worked 12.2 scoreless innings in relief from June 22-July 25 and earned his first professional save on June 16 vs. the LA Angels, preserving a 4-3 win by recording the final 7 outs of the game (2.1IP , 1H, 0R, 1BB, 4K )...Worked 4.0 IP of relief two times to set 2014 club highs for single-game relief, the last coming on August 5 vs. Cincinnati that prepped his return to the rotation..O ver his last 16 relief outings (June 10-Aug. 5) his ERA was 1.23 (26.0IP , 21H, 6E R) as batters hit .180 (11/ 61) w/ men on (18th in A.L at time in relief) and .161 (5/ 31) with RISP (19th-lowest relief mark in league).


Made his fifth start of the year, his first since April 25, on August 10 at New York-AL (5.1IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 4., 77 P), marking his first win as a starter since June 29, 2011 at Arizona and snapping a 12-game losing streak as a starter covering 17 starts...Was 4-0 with a 0.70 ERA over his first 6 starts from August 10-Sept. 7 (38.2IP, 25H, 3R.ER, 4BB, 42., .179 A9G) to lower his season ERA from 3.88-2.69...Recorded scoreless starts on August 10 and August 16 vs. Baltimore (7.0IP ) and did not allow a run over 16.0 straight IP from August 10-22...Dating back to 1900, Carrasco became just the 3rd p itcher in Major League Baseball to post back-to-back shutout victories immediately following a streak of 15 or more starts without a win, joining Ryan Dempster and Bud Norris (both in 2012), and both after streaks of 18 winless starts (Elias). 


Carrasco recorded his first career complete-game shutout (3rd career CG, first w.9.0 IP) in his start of September 17 at Houston, holding the Astros to a pair of infield singles and one walk, while registering a single-game career-high 12 strikeouts on 98 pitches...Joined Sandy Koufax as just the second pitcher ever to record a shutout on 98-or-fewer pitches while also tallying 12+ Ks, who did it (9.0 IP , 1 BB, 12 SO , 97 p itches) in a 3-0 no-hitter on June 4, 1964 at Philadelphia... Marked just the third time in Cleveland franchise history for an Indians hurler to allow 2-or-fewer hits and record 12+ strikeouts in a road shutout, as Carrasco joined Bob Feller (July 12, 1940 at Philadelphia-AL) and Bartolo Colon (Sep t. 18, 2000 at New York-AL)...Paired with Kluber's (2BB/ 14K ) effort the previous night, Carrasco's outing cemented just the 4th instance in MLB history for an A.L. team to get consecutive starts of at least 12 Ks and 2-or-fewer walks - the 2nd in Cleveland franchise history (Elias).


Over his last 3 starts beginning with the Sept. 17 shutout he was 1-2 w/ a 1.13 ERA (24.0IP , 13H, 3E R, 31K ) and in 6 September starts he was 2-3 w/ a 1.62 ERA (44.1 IP , 34 H, 8 ER, 8 BB, 54 K )...Indians were shutout, 2-0, over each of his last 2 starts and scored 8 runs in the 6 Sept. starts...MLB hitters had a slash line of .256/ .287/ .543 off him, as lefties hit .196 (45-230, 14th-lowest mark in A.L.) w/ a .516 O P S (.221 mark vs. RHH was 8th-lowest in A.L.)...Overall on the year batters hit .213 (39-183, 10th-lowest in A.L.) with runners on base and .221 (23-104) with RISP.
