CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians caught a lucky break. Carlos Carrasco is only bruised.An MRI taken Monday revealed that Cleveland's steady starter only suffered a bruised right elbow when he was struck by a vicious line drive on Saturday against Minnesota."We dodged a huge bullet," said relieved Indians manager Terry Francona.Carrasco, who has previously sustained serious injuries after being hit by comebackers, will be treated for swelling over the next 48 hours before being evaluated on Wednesday.At this point, it's expected that Carrasco will return to the rotation and mound once his stint on the disabled list ends."He still got hit really hard and there's some trauma," Francona said before the Indians opened a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox. "The hope would be, once he gets the swelling out of there, that he'll come quick because it's a bruise and it could have been a lot worse."In the second inning on Saturday, Twins star Joe Mauer hit a line drive that Carrasco could...

CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians starter Carlos Carrasco only sustained a bruised elbow when he was struck by a line drive against Minnesota.An MRI taken Monday on Carrasco came back negative and the right-hander will likely return once his stint on the disabled list ends. Indians manager Terry Francona expressed relief that Carrasco was not more seriously injured.Carrasco will be treated over the next 48 hours and then evaluated Wednesday.In the second inning on Saturday, Twins star Joe Mauer hit a line drive that Carrasco couldn't avoid. The 31-year-old, who has been one of the AL's most consistent pitchers the past three seasons, has a history of being hit on the mound. He was struck in the face in 2015 and missed the 2016 playoffs after breaking his hand.Despite his track record, Carrasco has not shown any jitters and Francona doesn't expect the latest incident to bother him.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

SEATTLE (AP) — The Mariners have activated right-handed reliever Juan Nicasio from the 10-day disabled list as they continue to add options in their bullpen.Nicasio and catcher Chris Herrmann were added to the 25-man roster on Monday ahead of a road trip against the New York Yankees and Boston that begins on Tuesday.

On the morning of June 18 two years ago, the Atlanta Braves were 21-46. Now they're atop the NL East.Atlanta has turned its stocked farm system into a major league contender faster than expected, and after Sunday's 4-1 win over San Diego, the Braves lead second-place Washington by 3 1/2 games. At 42-29, they're even with Milwaukee for the National League's best record and look poised to be a factor in what should be an entertaining race for that league's five postseason spots.After three straight seasons with at least 90 losses, Atlanta is making a jump similar to what Minnesota did a season ago, when the Twins improved from 59 wins to 85 and earned a wild card.If you're worried Atlanta is a fluke, there aren't many obvious red flags. The Braves have a run differential of plus-67, the second-best mark in the NL. They've been fortunate at times (11-4 in one-run games) and unfortunate at times (1-6 in extra innings).The Braves are second in the NL in OPS after finishing 11th a year ago. ... [More]
