On Friday, Venezuelan reporter Carlos Zambrano (no, a different one) reported that Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco was going to undergo Tommy John surgery.  That was hearsay — he heard it from an Indians farmhand who is friends with Carrasco — but it turns out to be right.  Carrasco will undergo the procedure next Wednesday.

Carrasco will almost certainly miss the entire 2012 season as a result.  Pretty devastating for both him and for a team that needs every available arm to contribute in order to compete.  Indeed, it’s no accident if you track the Indians success this season with Carrasco’s presence and effectiveness in the rotation, there is a huge amount of overlap.

    That’s no good for the Indians and with all the young arms they have in their system, that’s not good for Carlos whenever he DOES return.
