Carrasco gets $47 million 4-year deal from Indians

Carrasco signed a four-year contract extension on Wednesday, which to be quite honest, appeared to be a very team-friendly deal for a dominant pitcher.

The third option for a trade is Trevor Bauer, who is younger (27), under team control through 2020 and is coming off a sparkling All-Star season, when he tallied a 2.21 ERA. Earlier this offseason the Indians exercised their 2019 option on Carrasco, but that will now be a part of this new deal.

Cleveland.com reported that Carrasco will receive $10.25 million in 2020 and have base salaries of $12 million in both 2021 and '22. The 2023 option is worth $14 million, with a $3 million buyout. Carrasco struck out 231 batters last season - a career-high - compiling a 17-10 record with a 3.38 ERA.

This year's Major League Baseball offseason has been a time of great uncertainty for the Cleveland Indians' pitching staff, as almost everyone has heard their name in trade rumors at some point. It may also mean the Indians will trade a different starting pitcher (ace Corey Kluber has been the most heavily rumored) in order to address the roster hole in the outfield.

It was another strong season by Carrasco, who came to Cleveland in the 2009 blockbuster trade that sent Cliff Lee to Philadelphia. "Carlos has always had a great complement of stuff".

For the cash-conscious Indians, the 31-year-old Carrasco is invaluable. And then go on to the next hitter and try to get that hitter out until Tito [Francona] comes to take the ball from you. "He's carried that forward for us now as a starter for the past four or five seasons". "If it were not for some freak injuries, he likely would have eclipsed that mark each of the last four seasons".
