.@Indians select RHP Presto Guilmet from Triple-A Columbus; send RHP Carlos Carrasco to Columbus; transfer C Lou Marson to 60-day DL.— MLBRosterMoves (@MLBRosterMoves) July 7, 2013
Carrasco allowed 7 runs (6 earned) on 10 hits against the Tigers last night, lasting just 3.1 innings. The outing raised Carrasco's WHIP to 2.09, which is the worst in MLB this season among pitchers with 25+ innings, and his ERA to 9.10, which would be the worst in franchise history among pitchers with 25+ innings.
Guilmet is a 25-year-old righty who was the Indians 9th round draft pick in 2009, out of the University of Arizona. In 2010 he was converted into a reliever, and he has steadily worked his way up through the system since then, posting an ERA of 2.39 or better in each of the last four seasons, including a 2.32 mark in Columbus so far this season, where he has served as the Clippers' closer. He has struck out 50 while walking only 12 in 42.2 innings of work. His fastball tops out around 90 MPH, but he also throws a solid changeup and slider.
Carrasco was scheduled to start again on Thursday against the Blue Jays. At the moment it's unclear who will make that start.
The latest 25-man/40-man roster:
In order to add Guilmet to the 40-man roster, the Indians moved Lou Marson to the 60-day Disabled List. Marson hasn't played in a major-league game since April 24th, and hasn't appeared in a professional game of any sort since June 7th.
