Indians keep Carrasco in fold through '22 season


The Cleveland Indians exercised right-hander Carlos Carrasco‘s $10.25 million option for the 2020 season and signed him to a two-year extension that takes him through the 2022 season.

The extension comes amid speculation the Indians might trade starting pitchers Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer as they retool this offseason.

Carrasco, 31, finished 17-10 with a 3.38 ERA in 192 innings pitched last season. He tied for the major league lead with two complete games.

In 2017, he tied for the major league lead with 18 victories and finished fourth in American League Cy Young Award voting.

He has played his entire career with the Indians and has a 79-62 record and 3.71 ERA in nine major league seasons.
