Indians keep Carrasco in fold through ’22 season

The Cleveland Indians exercised their option on Carlos Carrasco for 2020 and signed the right-hander to a two-year extension Thursday that takes him through the 2022 season.

The 2020 option is valued at $10.25 million, according to The Athletic. Terms of the extension were not disclosed.

The Indians had exercised Carrasco’s $9.75 million option for the 2019 season on Oct. 30.

The extension comes amid speculation the Indians might trade starting pitchers Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer as they retool this offseason.

Carrasco, 31, finished 17-10 with a 3.38 ERA in 192 innings pitched last season. He tied for the major league lead with two complete games.

In 2017, he tied for the major league lead with 18 victories and finished fourth in American League Cy Young Award voting.

He has played his entire career with the Indians and has a 79-62 record and 3.71 ERA in nine major league seasons.
