Report: Indians sign Corey Kluber and Carlos Carassco to extensions
Sunday April 5th, 2015

The Cleveland Indians and starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco have agreed to a contract extension, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

The deal runs for three years, includes club options in 2019 and 2020 and close to $22 million in guaranteed money, according to Passan.

Carrasco posted a 2.55 ERA with 140 strikeouts and 29 walks over 134 innings last season. In two starts this spring, Carrasco recorded a 2.70 ERA and yielded two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings.

Carrasco was designated for assignment in 2013 and spent part of last season in the bullpen, but pitched well toward the end of last season as a starter. 

The 28-year-old has spent all five seasons of his career in Cleveland.

It was reported earlier Sunday that the Indians have agreed to terms on a five-year contract with Corey Kluber.

The Indians open the 2015 season on Monday against the Houston Astros.
