Carlos Carrasco of the Indians Just Can't Stop Throwing at People, Plunks Youkilis, Likely Facing Another Suspension

Carlos Carrasco’s return to baseball after a nearly two-year hiatus was a disaster. Forget the seven hits and seven runs he permitted to the Yankees in a 14-1 defeat. He hit another batter. In July 2011, Carrasco threw over the head of Kansas City’s Billy Butler and was given a 6-game suspension. In his next start – pre-suspension – he injured his arm and needed Tommy John surgery. He served his six-game suspension at the start of this season, and his first time on the mound he’s shelled and plunked Kevin Youkilis right after giving up a 2-run homer to Robinson Cano.

Carrasco issued the following apology later:

I know it doesn’t look good. I really want to say sorry. I don’t want to hit anybody. I don’t want to do anything bad. I waited a year and a half to get my suspension [done] and everything. I don’t want to do that again. I don’t want to be suspended.

How long will this suspension be? Eight games? Ten?

Because you want to see it first!
