Top prospect Carlos Carrasco is getting knocked around in Lehigh Valley. Last night he had another poor outing:
4 IP / 11 H / 7 ER, 2 BB / 3 K
His season ERA is now at 6.62.
Carrasco is still tossing about one strikeout per inning in Allentown, but there is still cause for concern with the 22-year-old right-hander. Carrasco didn’t quite dominate in Reading, posting ERAs north of 4.00. There’s discussion about who will start one of Saturday’s games against the Nationals – it may be JA Happ, it may be Kyle Kendrick. But it probably won’t be Carrasco.
