CLEVELAND - Another dangerous pitch has Carlos Carrasco in trouble again. The Cleveland Indians pitcher was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Friday for "intentionally throwing" at New York's Kevin Youkilis, the righthander's second penalty in two years for aiming at a hitter. The Indians acquired Carrasco in 2009 as part of the trade that sent Cy Young winner Cliff Lee to the Phillies. Carrasco had just completed serving a five-game suspension for a fastball thrown at Kansas City's Billy Butler in 2011 (Carrasco missed all of 2012 following elbow ligament-replacement surgery)

Carlos Carrasco climbed the empty stands behind the home dugout at First Energy Stadium a little more than two hours before the first pitch last week. A camera crew from the Reading Phillies Web site waited for him at the top. Carrasco is the Phillies' top prospect and a potential key to the rest of the season. He could bolster the beleaguered starting rotation either as a call-up or the most coveted part of a trade package for a veteran pitcher. At the top of the grandstand, Carrasco sat down in front of the three men. One held a 16-word statement under the camera printed on a small piece of white paper to read.

The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals were postponed by rain and cold weather Tuesday in Chicago. What was Major League Baseball thinking? It is early April and the Windy City isn't exactly in the Sun Belt. But fans of the Cubs (and maybe the Cardinals, too) can only hope that the extra day will allow the host team to fix a potty big problem - a lack of working restrooms in Wrigley Field. Sure, there was a bright, shiny new video board, which was a hit unlike the Cubs who were shut out, but when you gotta go, you gotta go. Except Sunday night at Wrigley, where fans first had to find a restroom that was working, then had to control their own plumbing as they waited in long lines.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It was shortly after 8 a.m. yesterday in the home clubhouse at Bright House Field. Several players in the back end of the room were watching the Olympic ice hockey gold-medal game between Canada and Sweden. Another group was fixated on the highlights from the NFL's scouting combine on the other television screen. Freddy Galvis was huddled in front of his locker stall, glued to his phone. Two hours later, he was on the field, guzzling up ground balls with the precision of a high-end vacuum cleaner.

Minor-league pitching coaches file a report with their parent organization after every game. On Friday night, Rod Nichols used superlatives in assessing righthander Carlos Carrasco's work. "I used the word 'electric,' " Nichols, pitching coach for the Phillies' triple-A Lehigh Valley club, said yesterday. "His stuff was electric. " Carrasco pitched 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a 6-1 victory over Indianapolis. It was the latest in a string of strong starts for the highly regarded prospect who is under consideration to fill a vacancy in the big-league club's rotation Thursday night in Atlanta.

Minor league baseball is a warm-and-fuzzy place of goofy mascots, Scottish bagpipes, zany mid-inning promotions, myriad outfield signage promoting local businesses, and promising young players with major league dreams. Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald and Lou Marson had dreams of one day wearing Phillies red, their stay with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs a mere stopover toward that goal. They were all in red last night - as part of the Columbus Clippers. There is about a 30-foot distance between the home and road dugouts at Lehigh Valley's Coca-Cola Park, and about a 7-foot distance between the clubhouses.

PHOENIX - Chalk up another gem for Cleveland's young Carlos Carrasco.

When we need him, he's just been incredible for us. " Carrasco (8-4) gave up four hits, striking out seven with no walks.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Carlos Carrasco put together a quality start as the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians ended their three-game skid Saturday by battering the Tampa Bay Rays, 7-3. Carrasco (4-2) gave up just two runs and seven hits in six innings, and the offense did its part, too, as Shelley Duncan and Orlando Cabrera each had two RBIs. "Carrasco gave us a chance," said Indians manager Manny Acta. "He threw the ball well, and was aggressive with his fastball. " "I put in my mind I have to win this game and that's what I did," Carrasco said.
