Kenley Jansen
News 
 Carlos Carrasco received an injection in his elbow and will be shut down for a few days.
Brad Camara
Wed, Mar 11th
Kenley Jansen has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring, and has struck out six. Jansen is throwing fewer cutters this spring and is instead focusing on mixing his fastball and slider.
Connor Rooney
Mon, Mar 2nd
 Cleveland pitcher Carlos Carrasco has "been backed up a few days due to mild elbow inflammation," according to a report from beat reporter Mandy Bell. However, manager Terry Francona seemed unconcerned and described the situation as maintenance.
Mike Maher
Sat, Mar 7th
Kenley Jansen made his second spring outing while continuing to look impressive with increased velocity. Jansen was sitting 93 MPH and touched 94 MPH. His velocity has dipped over the past two seasons which resulted in a meager 14.5% HR/FB.
Matthew Davis
Wed, Feb 26th
 Cleveland Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco allowed two runs in two innings in an 11-7 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
Matthew Terelle
Tue, Mar 3rd
 
 Cleveland Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco (hip) will make his first Cactus League start on Tuesday.
Matthew Terelle
Mon, Mar 2nd
 
 Carlos Carrasco is dealing with a mild hip flexor strain and is listed as day-to-day.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma

Notes 
 Carrasco was already dealing with plenty of question marks after losing much of last season to leukemia, and now has been diagnosed with a mild hip flexor. He's day-to-day but it's obviously not the start to the spring that Carrasco owners were hoping for. Continue to monitor his progress but he avoids setbacks, he represents a fairly steep bargain in fantasy drafts, given his past performance and the fact that last year can largely be written off to his illness.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
It feels like we've seen the last of Jansen as an elite closer, as continued velocity declines and struggles with control led to his worst season as a professional. His overall numbers from 2019, other than his bloated ERA, remain fine, but this is not the Jansen that was once the top reliever taken in fantasy circles. It seems clear that Dave Roberts lost a little faith in Jansen last year and with a World Series or bust mentality, don't expect the leash to be overly long. Still, beggars can't be choosers with closer, and Jansen's contract and lengthy pedigree still keep him as a borderline top-10 reliever.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Too many injured seasons for Carrasco throughout his career and he is having some soreness this Spring already. He has been "relatively" healthy over the last 3 or 4 years (2019 he had his physical issues), and I love the strikeout potential, but I can't help but be cautious here.
