A month after being sidelined indefinitely with a blood condition, Carrasco revealed that was diagnosed with leukemia. He described the condition as "under control," but his fantasy value is the furthest thing from anyone's mind now. While he still hopes to return this season, nobody should count on him pitching in 2019. He is set to face minor league hitters on August 16, keeping the door open for a possible September return.

We haven't heard whether Carrasco will return this season, and while he would likely be a useful fantasy asset if he did, it doesn't make sense to hold out hope and hang onto him if you need to clear up a roster spot somewhere.

Carrasco recently landed on the injured list due to a blood condition that has made him feel lethargic. His current timetable is unknown but the Indians have said that they expect him to return at some point this season. Carrasco had been pitching much better than his ERA would suggest, and he is still fully capable of being a high-end fantasy starter once he returns. He is worth holding onto in most leagues while we await more information about his health.
