Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain, and will miss the next four-to-six weeks, the team announced Monday.

Outfielder Michael Brantley has been activated from the DL in a corresponding move.

Carrasco left Sunday’s game against the Tigers after injuring his left hamstring while trying to cover first base. He had allowed just one baserunner through 2 2/3 innings before exiting. He is 2–0 with a 2.45 ERA on the season.

KERI: Are these four breakouts for real?

Brantley injured his right shoulder while attempting a diving catch last September, and recently finished a rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus. He hit .310 with 15 home runs, 84 RBIs and 15 stolen bases in 2015.
