Last Wednesday, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco pitched seven innings against the Boston Red Sox, allowing two earned runs. He wasn't pulled because of an injury, and everything appeared to be normal, with the right-hander scheduled to start on Tuesday against the Detroit Tigers. Between the start against the Red Sox and Monday, though, something started barking, and according to the team's official Twitter feed, Carrasco was placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow.
With an off day on Monday, Justin Masterson will start on Tuesday on normal rest, and the rest of the rotation will be moved up. Carrasco's roster spot was taken by Jack Hannahan, who returned from paternity leave, so there's no corresponding move yet. David Huff was recently sent down to triple-A after three excellent starts in the majors, so it's likely that as Carrasco's spot in the rotation comes up again, he'll be the one recalled.
