Carrasco suffered the injury on the second pitch of Saturday's game, as he was struck with a line drive off the bat of Ian Kinsler. He left the game and the stadium immediately for x-rays, which revealed the break.
Cleveland ended up using a major-league record nine pitchers in a 10-inning shutout. They currently hold a seven-game lead on Detroit in the AL Central.
Carrasco has already missed six weeks earlier this season with a hamstring injury, which also took place against the Tigers. The Indians will also be without Danny Salazar for the year due to a forearm injury.
The New York Mets are still contending for a Wild Card spot in the National League, but they also took a notable hit to their rotation. Starter Jacon deGrom experienced pain in his elbow on Friday, and will now have to undergo surgery for an ulnar nerve.
This is said to be common for pitchers who have underwent Tommy John surgery, as scar tissue builds up and puts pressure on the nerve. deGrom underwent the surgery as a minor leaguer in 2010.
The right-hander is 7-8 with a 3.04 ERA this season, and will now likely go through a three-month recovery period. This comes just one year after throwing 216 innings during the Mets' World Series year. The team has fortunately not slowed down since their ace's injury, winning nine of 13, as they hold the top Wild Card spot with two weeks left in the regular season.
