To little fanfare, Carrasco has finally morphed into the ace everyone has chased for years. Dealing with durability problems throughout his career, Cleveland's overlooked stud has posted ERAs of 3.29 and 3.38 in 200 and 192 innings, respectively, over the last two years. Each time he notched a K/9 above 10.0 and BB/9 slightly above 2.00. He ranked inside the top 10 in FIP (2.98), swinging-strike rate (15.2%), and contact rate (69.2%) among qualified starters in 2018, but isn't always getting drafted like a top-10 ace. He's a great affordable anchor to target in the fourth round.

Carlos Carrasco signs two-year extension with Indians

The Indians exercised Carlos Carrasco's $10.25 million option for 2020 and signed him to a two-year extension through 2022, with a vesting option for 2023.

Fantasy Impact

There was talk of Carrasco being traded this winter, but this move should put those thoughts to rest. It's a big of a strange move for the Indians, as Carrasco's extension will take him at least through his age-35 season, when he could show signs of decline. Nevertheless, Carrasco's immediate future appears certain, which is helpful to fantasy owners at the very least.
