Starting Pitchers:

Carlos Carrasco, Indians - In his third start back in the Indians rotation, Carrasco pitched six innings and gave up one earned run on two hits with two walks and eight strikeouts. Those three starts combined, he has pitched 18 innings with one earned run, seven hits allowed, two walks, and 17 strikeouts. This is no fluke to me, as his fastball is now sitting 96 mph consistently, which is close to four mph higher than when he started the season. He's also throwing his slider more. In general, he seems like a refreshed pitcher and if he can keep these changes he's made, someone that all owners should be targeting in their leagues. This coming week he gets the White Sox on the road. I'm a believer. Mixed: $8; AL: $25.
