Carlos Carrasco went five innings (as planned) in the season’s finale against the Royals, allowing just one run. He permitted three hits and two walks while striking out six. The Tribe’s 2-1 win improved Carrasco’s record to 17-10.
Carrasco had a tremendous 2018 and figured to be the second starter in the ALDS against the Astros. He finishes 2018 with a 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 231 Ks in 192 innings. He has proven that he is an upper echelon starter and will be treated as such in 2019.
