Carlos Carrasco News
New York Mets starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco went five innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits and four walks in the Mets 7-6 win over the Yankees on Sunday. Carrasco did manage to strike out five batters, but the walks added to his pitch count, resulting in his only going five innings for the second start in a row. He did not factor into the decision. Though he has had a rocky shortened season, over his last four starts Carrasco has a 3.22 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and a 19:6 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 IP. Carrasco should continue to be active on fantasy rosters through the remainder of the season. His next scheduled start will be against the Phillies at home on Saturday.
New York Mets starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco went five innings, allowing four runs (one earned) on seven hits and one walk in the Mets 9-4 win over the Marlins on Tuesday. Carrasco, who did not have his best stuff or a solid defense behind him, struck out four and gutted out those five innings to pick up his first win of the season raising his record to 1-2. Carrasco missed the majority of the season with a severe hamstring strain which kept him sidelined until July 30. He has had a rocky shortened season, exemplified by a 5.88 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 33 2/3 innings pitched, though he has pitched better of late. Over his last three starts, Carrasco has now posted a 3.12 ERA, an 0.92 WHIP, and a 14:2 K:BB ratio in 17 1/3 IP. Carrasco appears back on track after a rough start and should continue to be deployed by fantasy managers in all formats. His next scheduled start will be a more difficult task when he faces the Yankees at home on Sunday.
New York Mets starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco had the best start of his truncated 2021 season on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants. Carrasco went seven innings, allowing just two earned runs on three hits while striking out five batters in the Mets 3-2 loss to the Giants. Carrasco, who did not factor in the decision, was dealing on Thursday. He only made one mistake which Kris Bryant jumped on for a two-run home run in the first inning. On the season, Carrasco has a 6.94 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP with 23 strikeouts over 23 1/3 innings pitched. Though these stats are not impressive, fantasy managers should take away the fact that Carrasco appears to be getting back on track after his season-long absence due to a hamstring strain. Fantasy managers in redraft formats should continue to hold Carrasco. He could very well be a difference-maker in leagues down the stretch in September.
Carlos Carrasco returned to form in 2020 following a battle with Leukemia in 2019 which limited him to just 80 innings pitched that season. In 2020 with Cleveland, Carrasco posted a 2.91 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and struck out 82 batters in 62 IP over 12 starts. His underlying 2020 pitching metrics largely mirrored his 2018 metrics when he struck out 231 batters over 192 IP and posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. This included a 29.3% strikeout rate (top-23% of MLB), as well as an overall exit velocity, barrel rate, and launch angle allowed which were right around or slightly below his 2018 numbers. Managers may be leery of Carrasco's uncharacteristic 2020 walk rate of 9.6% (up from 4.7% and 5.5% in 2019 and 2018, respectively). Don't be. This walk rate increase resulted from a 24 IP span in August in which he walked 15 batters. Carrasco appeared to right the ship in September when he only allowed 10 free passes over 32 IP. Heading into 2021, Carrasco should see a bump to his fantasy ceiling pitching for the New York Mets. If Carrasco can remain healthy, he should provide managers with 170-190 IP, elite ratios, along with, dare we say, 15 or more wins now that the Mets have added Francisco Lindor to the lineup and bolstered their bullpen with Trevor May. Should Carrasco maintain his excellent strikeout rate, courtesy of a slider, changeup, and curveball which all had whiff rates north of 34% in 2020, he should post 200+ strikeouts in 2021. With an ADP of 69, Carrasco projects as a high-end fantasy SP2 despite the move to the more competitive N.L. East.
