MLB News: Indians recall Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer; Hagadone sent down

The Indians made official this afternoon what we all knew for a few days:  They haverecalled starting pitcher Trevor Bauer while sending Nick Hagadone back to Columbus. They also brought up Carlos Carrasco to be their 26th man for Friday’s doubleheader.

From the team:

“Bauer (#27) is making the start in game 1 today of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox in US Cellular Field. Trevor has gone 1-2 with a 2.76 ERA in 3 starts for Cleveland this year (16.1IP, 9H, 5ER, 15BB, 11K, .161AVG), the last of which came on May 13 vs. the New York Yankees (G2). Around his three starts in Cleveland, Trevor has gone 3-2 with a 4.13 ERA in 12 starts for Triple-A Columbus (65.1IP, 59H, 30ER, 36BB, 67K). He has never faced the Chicago White Sox in his career.

Hagadone has gone 0-1 w/a 5.40 ERA in 27 relief outings for Cleveland this year (25.0IP, 18H, 15ER, 15BB, 22K).

Carrasco (#59) will start today’s doubleheader nightcap in Chicago. So far this year with Cleveland he has gone 0-3 with a 7.78 ERA in 4 starts (19.2IP, 27H, 17R/ER), the last of which came on Sunday, June 23 vs. Minnesota (L#3, 4.2IP, 6H, 3R/ER, 4BB, 3K). He is 0-3 with a 6.15 ERA in 4 career starts vs. the White Sox (18ER/26.1IP).”

In addition, the Indians will recall RP Matt Langwell in between games 1 and 2, sending Bauer back to Columbus according to a tweet by Paul Hoynes.

Following today, Carrasco will have to go back to Columbus as well, at least to finish out the ten day rule. Carlos was optioned to Columbus on June 24th.

This is all assuming the Indians and White Sox aren’t washed out today.

    This quote from catcher Miguel Montero for the Diamondbacks who had the distinct displeasure of putting up with this guy: “When you get a guy like that and he thinks he’s got everything figured out, it’s just tough to commence and try to get on the same page with you … Since day one in Spring Training I caught him and he killed me because he threw about 100 pitches the first day,” Montero said, adding he told Bauer he should take it a bit slower and work on locating his fastball first before working on his breaking pitches. ”And he said ‘yes’, and the next time he threw I saw him doing the same thing,” Montero said. “He never wanted to listen … Good luck to Carlos Santana.” I think we all know what really happened with Bauer tonight, and the word arrogance comes to mind.
