Francona: Indians plan on activating RHP Carrasco
Francona told the MLB Network Radio about the planned move Wednesday.
The 32-year-old Carrasco has been out of major league action since late May, when he was diagnosed with leukemia. He has made three rehab appearances so far with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, permitting one run while striking out six hitters across 3 2/3 innings.
Carrasco will make one final minor league appearance Thursday and, assuming all goes well, he will join Cleveland’s bullpen Sunday as he continues to build endurance in his arm.
