Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Indians have signed Carlos Carrasco to a three-year contract extension with a vesting option for 2023.December 06, 2018 | 10:48 AM
The new deal will trigger his $10.25 million option for 2020 and lock him in for 2021 and 2022. The full financial framework should be revealed soon. Cleveland has been shopping some of its top starting pitchers this winter, including Carrasco, but the 31-year-old right-hander clearly had a desire to stay put. He posted a strong 3.38 ERA, 1.125 WHIP, and 231/43 K/BB ratio over 192 regular-season innings with the AL Central champs in 2018.
