Right-handed pitcher Carlos Carrasco (36, New York Mets) is out for the season with a freak injury.
According to ESPN, Mets manager Buck Showalter announced on Saturday that Carrasco will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his right pinky finger in a dumbbell accident. According to local reports, Carrasco dropped a 50-pound (22.68 kg) dumbbell on his right pinky finger while working out in the weight room at his home stadium, Citi Field. The injury resulted in surgery to fix the bone and insert a pin. The recovery time for this type of injury is typically four to six weeks, according to MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB). The Mets do not expect Carrasco to return this season.온라인바카
Carrasco’s record this season is 3-8 with a 6.80 ERA. MLB.com writes, “It’s been a disappointing season for Carrasco, who missed time earlier this year with a right elbow injury. When healthy, Carrasco posted a 6.80 ERA in 20 starts, the highest in MLB among pitchers with at least 90 innings pitched. Expect his time with the Mets to come to an end.
The Mets acquired shortstop Francisco Lindor from the Cleveland Indians in January 2021, bringing Carrasco along in the deal. He went 15-7 with a 3.97 ERA last year, but has underperformed this season, with MLB.com predicting that “it’s unclear if Carrasco will be a part of the Mets franchise when he hits free agency in November. Having fallen out of postseason contention, the Mets appear to be rebuilding ahead of the trade deadline, trading away key players including Max Scherzer (Texas Rangers) and Justin Verlander (Houston Astros).
Carrasco, a native of Venezuela, has a 14-year MLB career record of 107-93 with a 4.04 ERA. He has won double-digit games in four consecutive years since 2015. In 2017 with Cleveland, he went 18-6 with a 3.29 ERA and finished fourth in the American League (AL) Cy Young Award voting.
