How Carlos Carrasco is Serving as Key Piece in New York Mets' Rotation


In his second year in Queens, right-hander Carlos Carrasco is giving the Mets what they thought they were getting when they acquired him from Cleveland with Francisco Lindor prior to the 2021 season. On Monday night in San Diego, Carrasco was in vintage form, as he struck out 10 Padres and scattered just two runs on five hits across seven strong innings. "That was my goal, to get six-plus innings," Carrasco said. "And I was able to give them seven." With the outing, Carrasco has a solid 3.52 ERA and his seven wins are tied with Dodgers starter Tyler Anderson for the MLB lead. Carrasco had a rough go about in his first year with the Mets. After missing the first half of the season with a torn hamstring, Carrasco debuted with New York on July 30 and started 12 games the rest of the way.
