Carlos Carrasco injured by line drive in Cleveland Indians’ 4-1 loss to White Sox

Right-hander Carlos Carrasco was hit in the face in the first inning by a line drive off the bat of Melky Cabrera and had to be taken off the field on a motorized stretcher.

Carrasco suffered a bruised jaw, but X-rays at Lutheran Medical Center showed no signs of a concussion or head injury. It is not known how many starts Carrasco will miss.

Scary moment in last night’s Indians game. It looks like Carrasco is going to be OK - if so, he’s a very lucky man.

Indians Extend Cory Kluber for 5Y/$38.5M

The deal also includes two extra club options for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

The Indians have announced signing reigning CY Young Award winner Corey Kluber to a five-year contract, which runs through the 2019 season and contains club options for 2020 and 2021. MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian tweets Kluber’s guaranteed five-year portion is worth $38.5MM while Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets the contract, plus its unique escalators and trade language, is the largest guarantee ever for a pre-arbitration pitcher. Kluber is represented by B.B. Abbott of Jet Sports Management.

[...]

Kluber can earn $77MM across the life of the deal if all escalators are met, according to Rosenthal (on Twitter).  Starting in 2015, he’ll earn salaries of $1MM, $4.5MM, $7.5MM, $10.5MM, and $13MM. His fifth year can go from $13MM to $17MM with escalators (link).  His option for 2020 will be worth $13.5MM and can go to $17.5MM with escalators.  In 2021, his option will be worth $14MM and can be as large as $18MM with escalators.  That second option can be instead bought out for a paltry $1MM.

Los Angeles man convicted of killing homeless ex-ballplayer who once played for Cleveland Indians

A 33-year-old man has been found guilty of killing former Cleveland Indians baseball player Rodney Craig when both men were homeless in downtown Los Angeles.

Jurors convicted Billy Morales on Thursday of second-degree murder and he could get 16 years to life in prison.
Deputy District Attorney Jacqueline Mac said the 55-year-old Craig had been living on the streets and tried to stay at a homeless encampment in August but was kicked out by others living there.

Mac says Craig tried to kick a dog as he left, prompting Morales to run him down, beat him, and stab him.
