The Indians traded RHP Carlos Carrasco and SS Francisco Lindor to the Mets in exchange for INF Andres Gimenez, RHP Josh Wolfe, OF Isaiah Greene and SS Ahmed Rosario.
In a blockbuster deal, Carrasco was traded to the Mets on Thursday and figures to slide into the middle of the rotation behind ace Jacob DeGrom. After an overcoming a battle of leukemia, Carrasco was terrific in 2020. He owned a (3-4) record along with a 2.91 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 82 strikeouts over 68 innings. Carrasco should see a marginal boost in fantasy value with the move to the National League.
Carlos Carrasco couldn't make it out of the fourth in the Indian's Game 2 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday, giving up four runs on two hits and three walks over three innings pitched.
This was a strange start for Carrasco and it wasn't his fault. The start time of this game was pushed back due to rain and there was then a rain delay in the first inning. It might've messed with the starting pitchers as Masahiro Tanaka struggled as well. Still, Carrasco just wasn't able to effectively navigate the circumstances. The 33-year-old put up a 2.91 ERA in 12 regular season starts, and he'll enter the 2021 campaign as a rock-solid SP2 in fantasy.
