Indians choose Carrasco for starting rotation

Posted: Updated:

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Carlos Carrasco has earned a spot in the starting rotation for the Cleveland Indians.

The Indians said Wednesday that Carrasco will start on April 5 against Minnesota.

Cleveland chose Carrasco over Josh Tomlin. Carrasco joins Justin Masterson, Corey Kluber, Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar in the rotation.

The 27-year-old Carrasco made five trips to Cleveland in 2013, bouncing between Triple-A Columbus and the majors. The right-hander was 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA, but played a key role out of the bullpen during the Indians' stretch run to a playoff spot.

Tomlin is recovering from elbow reconstruction surgery and has options. The Indians want him to get consistent work in the minors, rather than working out of the bullpen.

Scott Atchison got a spot in the Indians' bullpen as a non-roster player. Blake Wood was told he'd won a place as well.
