2013 - Carlos Carrasco 0-2 3 3 0 0 0 0 15.0 21 14 14 2 6 7 8.40 1.80

Carrasco has been up and down with the Indians since 2009, never pitching more than 44.2 innings with the exception of 2011 when Cleveland gave him an opportunity with 21 starts. He obviously did not impress. Still just 26, he's young enough and inexperienced enough to have value as a pitcher who can log innings without sucking up millions of dollars from the payroll. His season hasn't been much to look at so far this year, but he did throw seven innings of one-run baseball against the Royals his last time out.

Pedro Hernandez

Hernandez's call up is so fresh that SB Nation hasn't updated their widgets yet. Suffice it to say that in his first stint with the Twins this season, Hernandez wasn't exactly what you might call "effective". He allowed 21 runs in 32 innings off of 44 hits, and considering his track record in Triple-A there isn't much reason to believe he can improve upon those number in the long run. The best we can look for is success in a small sample size which, because it's Cleveland, would be awesome today.

More Pedro's call up.
