At 6:10 pm, our selection is on the Cleveland Indians over the Kansas City Royals. Carlos Carrasco's return this season from a bout with cancer is nothing short of miraculous. If he had come back to get some part-time relief innings that would be considered enough of a success. But that fact that he's a full-time starter logging quality innings after what he went through is really quite remarkable. In eight starts covering 42 innings Carrasco has a 3.43 ERA and 52 strikeouts. The only stat that's been troubling for the 33-year-old righthander is his walk rate as Carrasco has issued a career-high 4.3 free passes on average every nine innings. Carrasco also only has two victories in his eight starts but perhaps getting the ball against KC tonight will help change that. In 26 games (21 starts) covering 128 1/3 innings vs. the Royals, Carrasco is 12-7 and those 12 wins represent the most that he's had vs. any team. The Indians are 55-18 (+11 games on the money line) in their last 73 home games as a favorite of -200 or more. Take Cleveland.
