Carrasco picked up an easy 11th win of the season as he pitched in relief giving up zero earned while striking out two in a 5-2 victory over the New York Yankees.
In 102.2 innings of work, Carrasco owns a solid strikeout (9.82 K/9) to walk (2.02 BB/9) rate, while he also has done an okay job limiting the long ball (1.14 HR/9) and stranding base runners (72.1% LOB%). The end-result is a mediocre 4.12 ERA, but has a solid 3.43 FIP, meaning Cleveland’s defense has hurt his ERA some.
Cleveland has managed to win two of their three contests in the past week before the All-Star break. During that span their lineup was slashing .226/.318/.376 to go with seven extra-base hits and 14 RBI.
Colon was able to put in a quality start in his last outing, but he was tagged with his seventh loss of the season in a 2-4 defeat against the Boston Red Sox. He put in six innings of work giving up nine hits and three earned runs while he struck out three and walked two.
In 106.2 innings, the veteran owns a low strike out rate (5.23 K/9) but has done well limiting the free bases (1.43 BB/9), however he has struggled containing the long ball (1.86 HR/9). The end-result is a high 4.64 ERA and an even higher 5.20 FIP.
Texas could only win one of their three contests in the past week before the All-Star break. During that span their lineup was slashing .216/.309/.361 to go with six extra-base hits and 10 RBI.
