Indians send struggling Carlos Carrasco to bullpen

Staff and wire report Published:

After four disappointing outings, Carlos Carrasco has been removed from the Indians' starting rotation.

Following Monday's 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels, Tribe manager Terry Francona said Carrasco will be moved to the bullpen and Zach McCallister will start tonight on short rest.

Through four starts (22 innings), the 27-year-old Carrasco went 0-3 with a 6.95 ERA.

The Indians will not need a fifth starter until May 6. Two options at Triple-A are Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin.
