When Carlos Carrasco fell down this past weekend, clutching his hamstring, you could hear the collective groan of the Cleveland masses, pondering the end of baseball existence for the 2016 season. Carrasco had slowly worked his way into becoming an ace, and while on the precipice of perhaps his best season, it seemed another bad-luck incident for the Indians and Carrasco, on the way to the playoffs.'s Hayden Grove and EHC's Jim Pete take a look at Carrasco's injury, and the realities of "4-6 weeks" when a pitcher hurts his hamstring. They also ponder how the injury could domino into the rest of the rotation, and talk about Cody Anderson and Danny Salazar concerns, and if they're really concerns in light of Carrasco's stint on the DL.
