Carrasco threw only two pitches.

It’s another bump in the road for Cleveland’s starting rotation, which has been dealing with a nagging injury to Danny Salazar for nearly two months and has received inconsistent productivity from Josh Tomlin and Trevor Bauer in recent weeks.
Update: Carrasco has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the 5th metacarpal on his right hand. (Bone below the pinky finger) No time table for his return.
