Cleveland Indians’ Pitcher, Carlos Carrasco, Badly Injured While Covering First Base

Cleveland Indians’ pitcher, Carlos Carrasco, was helped off the field today after suffered what looked like a pretty severe hamstring injury. He was covering first base on a ground ball hit to the first baseman, and his left leg gave out as he reached for the bag. The severity of the injury is not known, but this could be a huge loss for the Indians’ rotation. Based on the video (which you can see at this link: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/174234544/indians-carlos-carrasco-suffers-leg-injury), it looks as if he could have suffered a pretty bad hamstring strain. According to sportsinjuryclinic.net, hamstring strain recovery times tend to vary depending on what grade strain it is. Assuming it is a hamstring strain, he could miss, “3 weeks for a grade 1, anything from between 2 and 8 weeks for a grade 2 hamstring strain and you are looking at pretty much 12 weeks for a grade 3.”
