News: Carrasco threw five shutout innings to beat the Yankees on Sunday. He allowed two hits while striking out four with no walks. After the game, the Indians said that Carrasco would remain in the rotation for the time being. Impact: Carrasco needed Justin Masterson to get dealt and for Zach McAllister and Josh Tomlin to fall apart to earn this shot, but the Indians also said that they would've still wanted him to be a starter if possible. "I don't think it was a case of buying a start," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "I think we want to see him start."(RotoWire, )

News: Carrasco was officially named the starter for Sunday's game against the Yankees, MLB.com reports. Impact: Carrasco will get a chance to see if he can take his recent performances in a relief role to the mound with him as a starter. The Indians have three off days in a span of eight days following Carrasco's start Sunday so it remains to be seen just how they plan on slotting Carrasco after his start.(RotoWire, )
