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.

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.

Although Cleveland doesn't pay him like it, Carrasco has been a true ace for five straight years, posting a sparkling 3.27 ERA with 193 Ks per season in that time. There is more upside with a pitcher like Syndergaard or Strasburg, but Carrasco's floor makes him one of the top 15 pitchers in this year's fantasy drafts
