Carlos Carrasco picked up his first win of the (Venezuelan Winter League) season by allowing one run in five innings on Wednesday. He struck out five and walked none. The Phillies’ top pitching prospect has a 2.84 ERA in 19 innings to date.
Carrasco is expected to pitch well in Venezuela. I’d consider him, right now, a contender for the fifth-starter spot, along with JA Happ, Kyle Kendrick and — for posterity’s sake — Adam Eaton.
