The Cleveland Indians placed pitcher Carlos Carrasco on the 10-day Injured List, but will likely miss more time than that.

Carrrasco was recently diagnosed with a blood condition following several weeks of feeling lethargic.  While in the information-gathering stage, Carlos is stepping away from baseball activities to explore the optimal treatment and recovery options, the details of which will be conveyed at the discretion of Carlos and his family.  The team does not know when Carlos will rejoin the club but expect him back at some point this season.

Tyler Clippard is scheduled to start tonight in Carrasco’s place.

With the Carrasco situation, the Indians optioned outfielder Greg Allen to AAA Columbus, and recalled pitchers Jon Edwards and Nick Goody from Columbus.
