Indians option Carrasco to Columbus, callup House
House, 23, has gone a combined 3-8 with a 4.83 ERA in 15 starts between Double-A Akron and Columbus this year (87.2 IP, 93 H, 47 ER, 11 HR, 33 BB, 75 K). The 75 strikeouts are second most among Indians minor league pitchers in 2013. Over his last eight starts at Triple-A, his ERA is 4.56 (49.1 IP, 51 H, 25 ER) and he is currently tied for 2nd in the International League with two complete games.
House (#40) will be making his debut at the Major League level after spending the last five seasons since 2009 in the Player Development system. He was originally Cleveland’s 16th round selection (501st overall) in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft.
Carrasco is 0-3 with a 7.78 ERA in four starts over two stints with Cleveland this season. He is still eligible to be recalled on June 26th for the doubleheader as the 10-day rule does not apply for the 26th man used in the new doubleheader rule.
