"Mets place pitcher Carlos Carrasco on IL with elbow inflammation"

The New York Mets have placed starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco on the 10-day injured list due to elbow inflammation. The team made the announcement on April 15, 2023, after Carrasco was removed from his start against the St. Louis Cardinals on April 13 due to discomfort in his right elbow. Carrasco, who was acquired by the Mets in a trade with the Cleveland Indians in January 2021, had missed the start of the 2022 season due to a hamstring injury. The 34-year-old right-hander had struggled in his first three starts of the season, posting a 6.43 ERA with 14 strikeouts and six walks in 14 innings pitched. The Mets have not announced a timeline for Carrasco’s return, but his absence is a significant blow to a team that has aspirations of contending for a playoff spot in 2023.
