Indians Pitcher Carlos Carrasco Makes His First Rehab Outing Since Leukemia Diagnosis

Monday was another step forward for Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco, as the Tribe starter threw an inning in a rehab outing in Akron for the RubberDucks.

Carrasco was making his first rehab start since being diagnosed with leukemia and leaving the team with what was defined at the time as a ‘blood condition.’

Here’s a tweet with some video of Carrasco coming into the game to a great ovation.

As seen in a tweet from WKYC below, Carrasco struck out the final batter he faced in the scoreless inning.

There’s no word about what the next step could be for Carrasco, who has continued to be with the team while battling the leukemia diagnosis.
