We're going to be pretty much scraping the bottom of the "dumbass" barrel to find those folks.  I can't imagine anyone who knows Carrasco's situation being critical of him if he decides to sit out until things are safer.

That he's still doing workouts and consulting with his pitching coach as if he might be willing to return this year actually shows considerable guts.

And dumbasses will accuse him of lacking moral fiber, or something like that.

I see Carrasco as one the prime candidates to opt-out of playing under a "at risk" player tag.  He had leukemia last season.  I can't imagine that within a year of treatment he has normal immune system.

Carlos Carrasco (P) CLE - Jun. 02

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=741117

Carrasco (elbow) has been regularly throwing bullpen sessions and sending videos of his workouts to Indians manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Carl Willis since MLB suspended its season in March, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Carrasco's availability for Opening Day looked to be in peril after he was shut down with elbow inflammation in early March, but baseball's ongoing hiatus has given him nearly three months to heal up from the injury. While Carrasco has since resumed mound work with no complications, Hoynes' report doesn't indicate that the right-hander has progressed to facing hitters at any point during the league-wide shutdown. With that in mind, Carrasco may find himself behind Cleveland's other starting pitchers when full-squad workouts resume, but the prevailing expectation is that he'll at least be available for the start of the season, even if he faces more restrictions with his pitch counts initially.

Carlos Carrasco (P) CLE - Apr. 16

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=740720

Carrasco (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions in Cleveland, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Manager Terry Francona said Carrasco is doing well in his recovery from elbow inflammation. He will still need to ramp up to simulated games before he'll be ready to work as a starter, but at least it sounds like he is progressing well following a mid-March injection in his sore right elbow.

Carlos Carrasco (P) CLE - Feb. 21

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=737646

Carrasco was diagnosed with a mild strain of his right hip flexor Friday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The news brings with it a sigh of relief after Carrasco was seen walking with a crutch in the clubhouse Thursday. He's merely considered day-to-day and will seemingly have plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day with the injury happening so early in camp.

Carlos Carrasco (P) CLE - Feb. 20

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=737572

Carrasco experienced discomfort in his right leg during a workout Wednesday and is scheduled to undergo further testing and imaging Thursday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The extent of Carrasco's injury won't be known until the Indians reveal the results of his MRI on Friday, but the fact that he was using a crutch to move about the clubhouse Thursday isn't the most reassuring sign. Carrasco was limited to just 80 innings in 2019 while he recovered from leukemia, but he entered spring training with no restrictions and was in line to slot back into the Tribe's rotation after finishing last season in a relief role. If Carrasco's leg injury proves significant, Cleveland could be without two of its top three starters for Opening Day, as Mike Clevinger (knee) appears likely to begin the season on the injured list.

As if leukemia wasn't bad enough, he was hit with a "trifecta of bad luck (H%, S%, HR/F)," in the words of the Baseball Forecaster.

Bids from the Three Amigos coming soon (next Monday with the roll out of Patton $ Online 2020).
