Last Year: Played for the Indians. He has not pitched since 2011, after having Tommy John surgery.
How did he get to Cleveland? Traded by the Philadelphia Phillies with Jason Knapp (minors), Jason Donald and Lou Marson to the Cleveland Indians for Ben Francisco and Cliff Lee.
What is expected of Carrasco? After coming off of Tommy John surgery this could be a big year. He is expected to battle for a starting spot in the rotation out of spring training. He was suspended for an incident for hitting Billy Butler. He will see his first start again the Yankees after having his suspension reduced from 6 games to 5.
