The newly acquired starting pitcher from the Cleveland Indians has been officially placed on the 60-day injured list. Of course, Carrasco came over in a trade that also brought Francisco Lindor to the New York Mets.
While the Mets are claiming this isn’t a setback in Carrasco’s return, they are admitting it is a delay as the right-hander is slowing down his progress. While the Mets hoped he would be further along, his soonest return date is May 31st.
Reliever Tommy Hunter will join the Mets.
